Track agreements?

Post by Oberon »

Ok, so I flag a track at a specific spot in a focus movie. I look at the Event and see that 5 other people also flagged the movie as having a track. Does the agreement mean that they saw a track at the same spot that I did or could it be some place else in the same movie?

It means they have clicked the same movie only. The track coordinates by users are known only to the StarDust team.

Actually, if I'm not entirely mistaken;
If a movie has already been flagged by someone, the frame number and coordinates clicked on are displayed at the end of the URL. Whether or not it changes as more people click on the track(s), I don't know.

Briefly (in my opinion); it could be someplace else.
While not stardusting, I'd rather be driving with my Alfa.

That's true of the CLICK. The click sends back all those details to the database.

But the agreements seems to be based ONLY on the fact that a particular movie was click somewhere by someone. It might have been clicked in a different location, (I've seen some that have multiple suspect objects).
