Hi Everyone,

With all the validation issues going on, I've added some additional information to your watched videos page:

http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/user_video_list.php

It will display at the top how many observations you've made, your total credit, your average credit per observation. In a perfect world it will be around 180 per video you've watched, approximately 1 per second -- however some videos are shorter than 180 seconds, and unsures in your observations lower their credit slightly (eg., if you have a valid observation with 2 unsures, then it will get 6/8ths the credit of a valid observation with no insures; 4 unsures would be 4/8ths, 5 unsures 3/8ths, etc).

It will also show how many valid and invalid observations you have, as well as how many are awaiting validation. This should let you check and see if anything weird has gone on with the awarded credit and the validation. As the old validation scheme had some bugs in it which was causing some observations to be awarded credit multiple times, I just wanted everyone to check and verify for themselves that there's nothing funny going on anymore.

I'm also planning on getting badges working today -- and I'm thinking it also might be interesting to have badges for accuracy (ie., a different badge if you're over 90%, 95%, 98% and 99% accurate).

Will you also be making changes to the Top Bossa Participants page at some point?

Also, I see you've added information to the forum pages. Nice. But the accuracy percentages are not being displayed correctly. I think instead of "0.93% accurate" it should read "93% accurate".

Wondered about that also.
Cool, and the cpu-badges are up now. :-)

Accuracy should be fixed to be an actual percentage now. :)

I'm still seeing "0.93% accurate".

Still, it's nice to be seeing a little bit of 'fluff'. I can hardly wait for the real meat and potatoes to get done.

I would think that's the way it should be too, but why does yours show 1% ??? unless that's for 100% ???

That would only be accurate to the nearest 1%. To the nearest 0.1%, my accuracy seems to be 99.6%.

Should be fixed now on the side. (I thought you were talking about the watched video page).

I think the database is not being very cooperative while networking gets things straightened out.
My guess is that -22246 = 0 - (your valid videos + your invalid videos). It's a temporary glitch. Instead of 0, the equation should be using your total videos.

It's a temporary glitch because the wildlife video server is down (that database has the number of total observations you've made). So that query is returning 0, so 0 - (valid + invalid) is giving the weird result. Once the wildlife video server is back up things should be all set.
