I felt I was going past the same panels…and I was …same screen over again…is this common?
Thanks again for your help!

I’ve not seen that before… not with the same question number, anyway.
There have been a few times when I think I’ve had deja-vu but the questions are not numbered the same, just very close together.
I normally find that if I revisit a tile that I’ve already seen (via a forum link etc) it will display whatever answer I gave when I first saw it. Strange that you seem to have been shown the same question 45 minutes apart…


#3

Yes they were 45 minutes apart…same screen number…different times. I haven’t come across this before. Maybe I do have a “glitch” that is causing both issues today…Thanks!


#4

And again came up…filled in the choice of Seals on its own…Screen Shot 2018-02-07 at 6.20.53 PM…I will stop tagging until we can figure it out as I am just going in circles.

Thanks!

Do you have the URL for this? It helps Mel and techs to locate it.


#6

I don’t really understand; would you please tell us in more detail what happened:

  • You saw the first instance of #50653 – why did you take picture of it?
  • Approx. how many polygons did you process after that?
  • What happened just before you saw #50653 the second time?
  • What made you notice that you had seen that polygon before?
  • Approx. how many polygons did you process after that?
  • What happened just before you saw #50653 the third time? It makes sense that when you see #50653 again, that the vote you had made before would be shown.
  • Did all three #50653 polygons appear in the same session of your work, or did you take breaks in-between?

Btw, where do you see seals in #50653?


#7

I’d guess that the URL would be
www.tomnod.com/campaign/campaign_2235/question/50653
wouldn’t it?


#8

The first instance was probably retrieved from the browsers’ history after coming across the second/duplicate instance of it.


#9

I did not see any URL. When I search the forum, it only shows in your post @Shaul Can you tell me where you saw it? Thanks.

#11

@T_Boechler Did you happen to notice the dates on the images? Mel said they included different dates-- could this explain the same-images?


#12

Thank you @EmeraldEyes That’s too teeny for my old eyes to see.


#13

Like @EmeraldEyes showed, and as @T_Boechler mentioned himself, we have the polygon number, and all URL:s have the same format, so it is easy to just add the polygon number at the end of the “generic URL” for this campaign.


#14

@cageycat, if the polygon number is the same, that would mean that it is the exact same polygon, i.e. with the same time stamp on it.


#15

I was talking in pictures there (had my sister burning my ear off on the phone at time when I replied to your post :laughing: )


#16

@Shaul, I cannot see the small font on the image. :eyes: :eyeglasses: :glaucoma:-- oops not an emoji.

The small font is why many of us just copy and post the URL. And, it is easier for everyone.


#17

I will try to answer all the questions:

I didn’t take a picture of the tile the first time, I took it after I had seen it twice and thought I may be going through a cycle of the same tiles and I wrote those down.
200-300 polygons were processed in this period that this particular tile kept coming up
I noticed it because it has a distinct ridge diagonally
Yes all three appeared in the same session of my work, in less than a four hour span, and in fact after posting and going away for a few hours, I dumped my history, scanned my computer and I signed in to check if I could go ahead…and the same tile came up!!!

Where do you find the dates on the images? I have never seen them?

And BTW @Shaul it is "as mentioned “herself”

Whether there are seals or not in the tile is not the problem right now, it fills it in and I have no control over it when it pops up.


#18

Might that be because the mouse pointer is still resting over the last choice selection made, because otherwise there is no pre-selected view when the next poly pops up on screen :thinking: (That said, it will show your choice selection when you click the back button on your browser :wink: )

This is the date/time stamp for each map; shown down in the bottom right corner of the screen

The date/time stamp will chop’n’change according to the map the poly comes from…remember they’re using a number of historical maps to compare seals activity/movements by time of year as well as time of day I think.


#19

Oops. Sorry! “T_” in your name didn’t give me a clue, so, unfortunately, my fingers just assumed… :anguished: :cold_sweat: :blush:

Thanks for your replies @T_Boechler. The mystery thickens, and I guess that we need @Mel_Nod to weigh in, to be able to come any further.
