All,

I've been working on some interface tweaks to the image review system, and am pleased to say that it should work a little more smoothly now.

The major enhancements have been focused on getting consistent zooming working. The old algorithm and methods would sometimes allow the picture to go out of frame and wasn't saving the last zoom location correctly; everything should be smooth sailing on that front now.

I'm still looking into an issue where trackpads can have issues panning around the image and I'm looking into a way to condense the observations section on the left side.

We've also got a whole new set of aerial imagery and we're ready to start allowing you to go through our large collection of aerial images. Look for a post on that tonight or tomorrow :D.

Another large update will be BADGES! Finally (sorry, it's my fault for waiting this long), we'll be giving out credit and badges for reviewing the images. We're working on the final details in a meeting today and should have them working by the end of the week. There will be one set of badges for making observations and another set of badges when the observations are validated.

Any work you've done on the images will be counted retroactively, so don't worry about missing out on points.

Marshall

OK. I just reviewed an image. There wasn't anything there so I clicked that button.

But there's no count anywhere that I did that.

Any chance we could see the same for videos watched many months ago that were never validated?

As a clarification: referring to "events Marked".

All,

I've been working on some interface tweaks to the image review system, and am pleased to say that it should work a little more smoothly now........

I will post this here only because it is one of two posts in the last six months by a project administrator/scientist.
Could you or someone PLEASE fix the
Video watching.

It has been reported and requested elsewhere but gets no response.
Isn't there anyone assigned to reading sections of this forum???
It seems VERY seldom we get any response to any question or issue or even an update.
Is it just because these Wildlife projects are no longer being done by students???
Or are the project "Scientists" too busy to be bothered by volunteers???
The last year {and more), has shown a level of neglect that would seem to indicate that NO help is actually wanted from the volunteers.
It's very confusing so we are left to draw our own conclusions.

For some reason my link did not work.

What needs fixing is all the interface buttons (event, times, etc.)
On the Video Watching - http://csgrid.org/csg/wildlife/video_selector.php

Pease respond even if nobody is going to fix it so we can decide what to do... stay and help or just move on.
