So our colleague Andrei is making a push to get 10 classifications for a set of 600 tweets - with the goal of comparing results from CSGrid to results he paid for on Amazon's mechanical turk. I'd like to show that you guys are much better at this!

We've almost got 10 classifications for each of those 600 tweets. 457 are completely finished, and the remaining ones all have over 4 classifications so we're almost there.

So if you could help us finish up these last tweets for a publication, or could help get the word out about it any help would really be appreciated!

Do we have an update of how many classifications we have now?

Getting very close actually!

All tweets have 1 or 2 views, then:


    1 needs 7 views
    4 need 6 views
    26 need 5 views
    47 need 4 views
    62 need 3 views
    54 need 2 views
    38 need 1 views

Hi

I hope you understand my point. I write this with the rest of my school English and the help of the stupid Google Translator.

Only a handful of people are involved in this subproject. Apparently there are only 130 people with valid Tweeds and only 47 have more than 50 total tweets. Of the top ten come (estimated) 90% of the classifications. These are in any case the numbers of the top list.
This means that the classification reflects the assessment of very few people. Is that enough scientifically meaningful?

Maybe you should give credits to get more support. This could also help wildlife.
