1) Message boards : Number Crunching : Videos credits and Boinc credits separated? (Message 1512)

Ok thank you ;)

Yes, time watched displayed is incoherent (approx 30% inferior) compared to number of videos watched (180s per video, except some rares of this)

;)


Hi!

So there are some issues I need to fix with the validator (in some cases it's not correctly validating things), but in general your watched seconds should approximately match the number of videos you've watched. If you go to the watched videos page:

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

It will show the credit you've been awarded for each video (we do give partial credit, unsures count for less credit, and so does marking a video as 'video issue'). If anything there looks weird please let me know so I can fix any bugs that might be in the validator.

We're keeping BOINC credits and credits for watching video separate as that's what most users want -- and BOINC credits are for tracking CPU usage, not any crowd sourcing activities. However, in the future (depending on feedback) I think I might provide some bonuses for video watchers, for example: "watch 1 hour of videos, get double credit X workunits) or something along those lines.

Hello,
I just start this project by see and comment birds videos.

In my user videos list I have this message : "You have 3558 credit from 168 observations. 18 have been marked valid and 5 marked invalid (78.26% accuracy). 145 observations are awaiting validation. You have averaged 197.67 credit per valid observation."

But in my account preferences, I have no credits, but only the number of second watched and accuracy. Credits for videos and credits for Boinc crunch are not cumulated?

Thank you ;)
