I am having fun playing with some keys Waveney unwisely left me while he's off on holiday. Now, if only I actually knew what I was doing . . . :D

Waveney has just told me a little more about what I am doing - so I think I get more of an idea now. ;D

In the meantime, 54 of us have clicked 56,487 times. 9 of us have clicked >1000 times. Come on, the rest of you - this is seriously addictive ;D

Two questions:  who so few voorwerpje enthusiasts?   Why is Waveney's handywork always more intuitive and FAR quicker than the main Zoo?

I'll see if I can round up a few more volunteers...

57 of you have now done 66,538 clicks.

No galaxy has yet been checked 20 times, though, nor is it expected to for a few days!

I think the voorwerpje hunt is hard to notice if you are not an active forum user. Even the anouncement in NGC3314's blog probably won't be noticed as there are about 20 blogs around. With that in mind, 57 hunters sounds like we have reached a good part of what's possible at all. It would be good to have an announcement on the main page to divert some "regular" users ;) to the hunt. An entry in the "Latest News" section of http://www.galaxyzoo.org would be nice.
IMHO. And I don't have a clue ...

I don't want to belittle waveney's work but his applications are far more specialized and don't have to cope with 200.000 users. And he doesn't have all those fancy images and layout stuff.
I found the user interface of galaxy zoo 2 is very balanced and intuitive. But I'm an computer professional, so my opinion does not count. A user interface is intuitive if your grandmother can handle it.  :D
IMHO. And I don't have a clue ...
