Are you saying your auto-generated feedback emails are not providing links to missed Power Movies?

Dan
That is correct Dan. I was going to post here about that very thing, but gebils beat me to it! Here is a sampling of what I have received from Stardust regarding missed power movies:

<p>Here is a list of the point values of the movies you missed:
<ul><li><a href='http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =344'>3</a>
<li><a href='http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... Y=28'>4</a>
<li><a href='http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =85'>15</a>
<li><a href='http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =17'>15</a>

In order to save these as linked movies in email, the address must be copied from apostrophe to apostrophe and pasted in to the browser. The apostrophes must then be deleted, the link opened and copied again, and repasted to email. This is what I have been doing to create my own linked list in email.

Gebils - So are you seeing what Elaine is seeing (per her post above), or are you getting emails with absolutely no link info whatsoever?

I was also having an issue like this where I would receive a blank email from Stardust with no content whatsoever. I have replied to the email to report the issue and Will said that he was going to look into it.

Apparently certain email service providers (like hotmail) removes the information from the email (most likely because they think its spam or links to malicious content). I had change my email address on Stardust to an other one (using my internet service provider email address now) and I am now getting the whole content of the email.



BTW I have been away for a bit and wont be on Stardust much these days, the building where I used to live got heavily damaged by heavy winds last weekend and I had to move out, I got no internet yet except for when im at work.

The emails I receive list my misses just like the connection from My Events page; however, there is no links on these emails.

Dan below is a copy of one of my emails:



Here is a list of the point values of the movies you missed:
3
4
6
7

8
15
15
22
23
26
29
35
36
46
47
60
74

Please note that Power Movies with a point value of 15 to 30 are considered by the Stardust@home team to be fairly hard to identify correctly, and therefore, are expected to be missed from time-to-time by even the best dusters. Power Movie values higher than 30 should be considered extremely hard, if not impossible to spot.
If you are not okay with the number and/or point value of the Power Movies you are missing, we suggest that you review the Phase 4 training guidelines at: http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... _start.php
Thank you for your support of and continued involvement in Stardust@home. We hope you are enjoying your contributions to this fascinating research project!
