How many are still participating?

Post by oscar »

I am curious about how many active dusters there are. I believe there has been about 20,256 people that have participated in the search for IS dust, but how many are still participating?

And I wish to say thanks to the Stardust Team for the opportunity to search.
The project is great fun. I am always excited about the prospect of being the first to find an IS dust track, but I also feel a wonderful sense of satisfaction to help verify found tracks.

Over here just yesterday they said there was 4000 people still logging in each day.

Not the best odds for being the first to find a track but better then 1 in 20,000

I think about half of the crowd, i.e. around 10,000, have done next to nothing, if not nothing. I noticed this as I whizzed up through the rankings by leaps and bounds after scanning only a few score focus movies.
