I'll be going through and updating all the Wildlife@Home webpages so they look like DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home today. Let me know how they look! The front page is done so I have to work on the other ones.

Like dear ol' dad used to say... "Much purtier than bug poop on the barn window."
--------------------------------------------
If it would quit asking me to "Please take our Gold Badge Survey", I'd be happy 'bout that too!
I refuse to take it a forth time... this year. :))

Thanks for all your hard work on this Travis.

Where is it asking to take the gold badge survey? If you've refused to take it, it should go away...

I took it 3 times and submitted it once with a "registration" and twice by itself.
...There is a banner in Yellow at the top center of the page whenever I view a video.
It says: "Please Take Our Gold Badge Survey"
There is also the highlighted words "Gold Badge Survey" next to my name in upper right corner after I log in to view video... On the Wildlife page.
There is no way to refuse it that I can see. Besides, I didn't refuse it and actually spent time filling it out quite thoughtfully 3 times.

I'm really sorry about that! I wish I had known sooner. I'll try and get this fixed ASAP. Looks like some kind of bug.

I have a very similar situation to JumpinJohnny.

I filled in the registration survey last week and was prompted to complete the gold badge survey yesterday. I did so and the survey page had the registration survey available for completion and the gold survey status as "You've already taken the gold badge survey". I was sure I'd submitted the registration survey but completed it again just to be certain.

The menu bar is displaying a white "New User Survey" link to the survey page and the registration survey is still available to be filled in. There's also a yellow tab with blue text "Please take our New UserSurvey!" at the top of the video viewing page.

@JumpinJohnny: can you remember if you completed the gold badge survey before the registration survey and does the survey page have "You've already taken the registration survey"?

The "New User Survey" comes up when I go into my preferences, I am sure I did it but can't remember now and have not tried to take it again.
After reviewing a video and submitting my observations (none of which was accepted and the video was not recorded against my stats, so I didn't do any more), The Gold Badge Survey was an option to take, so I did, or at least I tried.
I couldn't completed the Gold Badge Survey because it informed me I didn't qualify to take it, not enough credit or something like that, so I haven't bothered to try again after that.

Gold Badge Survey
You don't have enough credits to take this survey yet.


When I click on the New User Survey, at the end of the survey is the option for the Gold Badge Survey.

What is the Gold Badge for anyway? To qualify for it do I need more observing time? as there aren't any work units to get credits.

I'm fairly certain I did the "registration" first. Yes, the registration is not an option on the page. not available, says, "You've already taken the registration survey".
The Gold Badge request etc. only appears after I have logged onto Wildlife@Home web page.

I'm sure it will all get sorted out when Travis has time.
Not a huge issue but I'm sure he will want everything to function correctly in the end.

Since I have only a bronze badge for a few WU's that I was able to get shortly after Windoz apps became available (June?).. I assume the "badge" is for observing/marking video since that is what most of the questions on it cover. If you get such a message then I can also assume that you need the first gold feather to take the survey.
But, I would wait until Travis gets a chance to sort it all out before trying to submit either The Registration or the "Gold Badge" survey

Yeah the survey is for the gold feather badge (for watching video), not for crunching work units. Hopefully get this issue sorted out today.

Seems you've fixed it. Congratz!
The banner etc., is gone and (5th) submission was accepted.

*Whew!
............................................................................
Next item. Badge updates to Stat sites.
When the XML files are correct, my "feather badge" will be the same in my signature as the one on this message board.
..............................................................................
Also ... I have been doing DNA@Home WU's but the credits don't show anywhere except on my CSG totals for Boinc Manager client as a combined total and hours in for the WUProp program.
The stat sites only show old Wildlife@Home numbers with NO DNA and NO CSG.
My guess is that you are still working on it.... so when you have Nothing else to do>>> LOL.
..............................................................................
Q. Will there ever be a combining of "seconds watched" columns? Seems that since the "Feather Badge" is reflective of that total that they should be combined in the data base and maybe show on the personal info.
I'm aware that we are now weighing the Events marked more heavily now under the new interface... but....

I think that data source of "watched s" was badly chosen. This statement contains only seconds from old interface.

<------It is seen here. And under videoplayer (watching video site) in stats -> xxxxx seconds watched : xxxx events marked (xxxx valid, x invalid, x missed)

I think this is going to require getting things working with some of the new credit additions to BOINC, hopefully this week or next week I'll get that going!

Had forgotten about that with all the other changes, I'll be on that one too. :) All on my to-do list.

hi,
when the user is on the main page http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/, he can't open "reviewed video" site from user's menu. Please add this item to user's main menu (like in old version of website).

He must open URL directly, or from fews subsites as "top bird watchers" (with old menu bar).
---
I also have a few improvements to review_videos.php. I don't know where to place them, so I post here.

It would be possible to add a "ID" filter? I've seen a lot of videos and sometimes I make a mistake. It is very difficult to find a specific video, which is described as "on nest". But mostly I know the video ID which is unique.

I think, that "Sort by" button not work. My latest video isn't in the beginning nor the end. Names of videos are unsorted.

And another improvements, it would be possible to add "My INVALID/UNVALIDATED" mark? Current filter "Unvalidated" show all unvalidated events from all users. It also contains my valid videos with the invalid/unvalidated status of (for example) Senilix, JumpinJohnny...

Hi Michal,

I've updated the navbar so that under the username there should be a 'Review Wildlife@Home Videos' which will take you to the review videos page.

Also, there should be a Video ID filter in the upper left hand corner which should filter by the video id. Or are you talking about a different ID?

I'll look into getting the pages working so that it will only show events of type that were your own events (not others who had unvalidated, etc).

Video ID Filter? I see it this way. I thought a field in which I can write "10408" and page returns the 1 video result => #10408. I can only filter years, animals, locations, type of events (on nest, predator, not in video, chicks...), other event (valid, invalid, reported, ...) and this is all.
