Do you think stardust even keeps track of first track finder

Do you think stardust even keeps track of the first people to find a track? It would really suck if they didnt... :?

They do, otherwise the naming conventions they have put in place would be moot.

How can you tell by looking at your events list if you were the first to spot one? You can't say its by looking at the number of agreements. The numbers of agreement are changing on mine. It is possible to see that 3 people agree yet I was the one who discovered it first. Correct?

Look at your events as soon as you click on it. If there's one agreement, that means you're first.

Seems logical that they would "BOLD" the event or something if you were the first to spot it. Wouldn't be too tough to do IMHO.

Hi.

This topic is already being discussed here http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... c.php?t=14.

in part, Anna has stated ..."The discoverer is the first person to have clicked on the track. The coordinates, time and date of each positive click are all logged in our database."
