The login is not working for me.  Is something wrong or is it just me?

Did you have a previous login for Mergers?  If so was it more than two weeks ago?

I aware of a problem that I am working on a fix for, but it should not stop normal access.

Its an SDSS fault affecting some people - there is nothing we can do about it until they notice and fix it.

How close do other galaxies have to be before we call them Friends? (Or how far away do they have to be before we say the Irregular is on its own?)

Use you own judgement - we are particularly interested in nearby irregulars.

How well are people agreeing so far? Or is it too early to tell? :)

When there is an addition, as in a seperate clump just away from the main galaxy ( like in the example that says 'a friend'), what button should I choose? I feel uncomfortable choosing nearby irregular as I don't see this being the case. I would suggest that we could have a seperate button for these additional objects. That way, If there is an actual irregular nearby, it will be easier to find when analyising the data at the end of the project.  Just a thought. :)

I don't think a separate button would help in this case, but if you listed the ObjectId of the extra blob in the Irregular Topic I will trawl and add these to the Hunt every now and then.   As soon as all objects are at say 10 clicks I will generate a summary file so anyone can have a play and see what they can find out.  (Then refining the file at 20 etc).

I deliberately have not been looking.  I will let the hunt continue and report at say 10 clicks each.  Its about 1.5 each at the moment - but remember two people (one of whom clicks 25/8) have been clicking since the middle of the week.

With starforming clumps, are they only the very bright, compact, aquamarine/blue blobs? For instance, this one has ones at 8 o'clock, 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock - but I have the feeling there is star formation all over the place.

There looks like lots of clumps to me.
