I am one of those who gets the messages about having gotten to a page by an unusual route, which means the work just done doesn't get counted. My concern is that more science could be done more quickly, even by those with slower computers and connections, if multiple tabs (as in Mozilla) could be used. The whole enterprise would benefit. It is frustrating to wait for a new movie to load when one could already be examining one in another tab. The work is easy enough, but waiting for it to arrive isn't.

I was wondering about high scores too. And tried having more than one window logged in. And it works. I have three at the moment.
Efficiency. Not trying to clamour for high ranking. I might as well be viewing a movie while another loads. Makes more sense. With the tremendous number of images to be checked. I'm here to help. I would hope that I AM doing a good job of it to boot. And hope my numbers of mistakes and such are well below average.
You have to wonder though, if you don't care about rankings, why be concerned about how people have high ones?
On a more productive note, it would be nice if, when we got a callibration movie wrong, that we had a way of learning from the error.
I agree that feed back on misses on callibration movies would be helpful. We learn from our mistakes but only if we understand the mistake.
