By request I've updated the "video problem" button so that you need to click it twice (it will ask "are you sure" before the second click) to prevent misclicks. Hopefully this helps!

Nicely done!
Can you add something similar to the submit-button? ;-)

No! Submit is that far away from other buttons, you cannot misclick.

I can recall a time or two when I clicked on Submit without meaning to. I mark the video while I'm watching it, clicking Submit after the video finishes, but once or twice I made my initial marks and then went down and immediately clicked Submit without intending to.

I think the reason some people want an "Are you Sure?" option on Submit has to do with giving themselves an extra opportunity to realize that their markings are not correct. I personally don't think it would help, as we would soon just get into the habit of doing a double-click on Submit.

Well, in some way you always can misclick. Since a correction button probably wouldn't be possible there needs to be a way to recheck the markings before clicking submit...

Who knows. It probably depends on personal behaviour.

There's been many times I've went to Submit & for whatever reason I knew I had Marked the Video wrong but because of the Repeated Marking Syndrome as some call it I Involuntarily Clicked Submit anyway then kicked myself in the rear end for doing so. I think it would help some including me and I would be the first to admit it didn't help if it doesn't help. It can't hurt anything, like what does it take a Millisecond to click again if your in that big a hurry.

I think the whole point in watching the Video's is to Mark them Correctly or at least try to & not to see if you can watch more than the next guy so a Are You Sure second chance button for the Submit Button can't hurt anything, it can only help ... IMO

Well after 4 days or so I have to admit the "are you sure" to the submit button hasn't helped me a bit :( I think 1 Time I caught myself Marking the Bird Present when it wasn't Present but at least a dozen or more times I still Hit the Submit Button the 2'nd time & then realized I had Marked the Video wrong.

I guess it's just something I'm going to continue to do 1 or 2 times out of 100 for whatever reason, Marking the Bird Present when I know the Bird isn't there ...
