You forgot the arrow!

Post by marlene reynolds »

:lol:
Dear Stardust Team: I found a CM with a little box imposed over the track. Did you do this on purpose? I know the CMs change numbers but maybe this will help. 8861826V1 When I clicked on it it gave me a correct mark. The box is just right of the center of the box. Maybe so many people complained about the difficulty finding tracks that you felt you ought to earmark some!

Cheers

HI Marlene,
I found a similar CM and I thought the same as you.
Just to check if my hypothesis was correct, I tried to mark the next CM with box containing a "track" (as it really contained something moving like a track) and I found out that I was wrong.
I think one must be very careful with those CMs with a "track in a box":)

Hey guys. Is this the sort of thing you are talking about?

If so, I am pretty sure that is a result of some lazy photoshopping. I noticed quite a few of them, but none so clear as this one. I guess we should just consider it a bonus. In this case, I got a correct answer when I clicked it however.

Hi Titanium,
that picture portaits exactly what I was talking about.
I got an incorrect answer clicking on one of those box containg a thing looking like a genuine track.
Unfortunately I did not record movie number.
