I've got one movie that I marked and it got an official comment
from the Stardust team.

Yup, they called me crazy! (But more nicely than that).

I found a possible candidate in a split movie, and marked it as a
possible track. They looked at it and dismissed it after seeing the
split.

The movie is this one:
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =5055442V1

And my possible candidate appears in the part AFTER the split, and appears to be
comeing in focus as you reach the bottom of the focus range.

It could be that its just impossible to track down these split movies, and they didn't want to deal with it.
Or it could be they really did think I was crazy.

The good news is there are some Official Comments starting to appear. Guidance!

lol, I got one that said (typo is not mine) "Bad Facus" lol (guess I accidentally labled it as a track instead of focus)
Don't sweat the small stuff. It's part of life, and no one gets out alive.

You were right to mark it, but there's such a difficult focus problem there its probably nothing.

Just out of curiousity, what was agreement rate on that one? Couldn't be more then 5%, it's strange they would even look at it before the 1000s of others with more possible tracks.

The only reason they did look at it is they are culling Bad Focus movies. But some Bad Focus movies have been marked. (read upthread).

Those that are marked bad-focus by some number are being purged, and they exercised the courtesy of notifying those that did mark them.

So the agreement was very low. Because most saw the split and stopped looking any farther. I'm stubborn. I look at the parts before the split, and after the split.

Dang it Icebike.....You got me all excited, so I rushed to my events only to see the same old thing....sigh.

Hey, I am here in Berkeley just for the weekend. Maybe I should swing by? Hurry them up? Kidding, I wrote with that very suggestion, (the swing by and have a look part, not the hurry them up part), .......they didn't reply.

Oh well. I will wait to see what is and isn't determinate. Besides, I think they are actually pedalling as fast as they can.

Cheers,

Oh, I'm not complaining, removing bad focus movies is a good step, especially if everyone has been told not to waste time on them.

Got an official comment for the highest-hits movie I reviewed so far:

Movie 9471219V1 94 63 Indeterminate passed 1st review

This was the movie with the designation 38843A originally.

This movie was my first non-calibration hit, movie #99 for me, which I saw on 8/1 at 6:20 pm Central Daylight Time in the US.

I didn't see the My Events page until well after I saw this movie, so I don't know if I was first to get it (the count was low when I finally did see the My Events page, but that was about 10 minutes or so after I saw this movie).

Did anyone review this movie before that time?
