Since the HPC storage system looks like it's working, I'm generating the rest of the grouse videos. The conversion process takes awhile, but the video available for watching should increase as the videos get converted to the streaming format for the webpages.

I find at least 50% of the Grouse Videos almost impossible to determine anything, rather than just taking a guess I 'm just reloading & hoping for a Video that isn't totally screwed up & that I can actually determine something & make a proper Yes/No Selection.

I had one that the Wingman said there was a Parent Present, I watched the Video 5 Times at Slow & Fast Speeds & never once could see the Parent at the Nest. Since it was Lemon I figured he was right but for the life of me I could not see the Parent ...

Yeah, there was one where I fell victim to Click Pattern Repetition Syndrome and realized it immediately after I hit Submit. Sorry about that.

EDIT: Of course, that depends on what area you are viewing. There are a couple of new nests where the parent blends into the grass very, very well.

New videos, new grouses, new nests...

Click Pattern Repetition Syndrome

We need pattern buttons for auto-clicking these 9 choices, at least two - one for "parent absent" and one for "parent present", would spare a lot of time. ;-D

Not sure that would help all though it would be nice, sometimes I'll get so upset over marking a Video wrong I'll mark the next one wrong too ...


We really need to be able to Edit our Choices once submitted, even if it meant the loss of Credit for the Editor it would be worth it. 99.9% of my Mismarks are just Mental Lapses or the Click Pattern Repetition Syndrome as Lemon put it ...

I'm working on that -- right now I'm getting a page up and going for Susan and her students, then i'll be back on the watched video page (so we can get the reporting function working and then I'll get to letting you modify your results).
