Also see no galaxies listed under my galaxies after going through about 50. Maybe the system is overloaded by so many of us just joining after the zoo was high lighted on apod today.

Hello S Howard and welcome to the Zoo.  :D  I think you have to wait 24 hours or classify more than 100 to get "My Galaxies".  Guys?
Happy hunting!! ;D ;D

I don't think this is supposed to be the case; you do have to classify over 100 to get the Google tours. I think there's a time lag due to a lot of new people at the moment or some other thing. I'll find out :)

A probably infrequently-asked question! Is there a way to subscribe to a thread without posting in it? 
I had a look at the Notifications preferences in my Profile, but I thought those were for emailing you when there are replies, not in the "show new replies to my posts" or similar tool.

In any topic, there's a "Notify" button next to the "Reply" button.
Okay -- I must have inadvertently pressed the "Notify" button when reading a thread.  Now I am being bombarded with unwanted emails.  :o   I can not find anywhere that will PERMANENTLY turn off the notification option on the thread.   HELP!  I would really like that turned off.

Thanks, Pat.s

Help with merger enhancement
« Reply #138 on: November 24, 2009, 02:32:42 pm »
With the merger enhancement tool, the appearance of the galaxy pair is extremely sensitive to the exact position of the cursor as you move it about in "speed", "depth", "mass". So when you're close to such a "node", things change hugely for a very tiny movement of the cursor. To get the best match, you need to be able to make much smaller changes than this. But my arrow keys don't seem to work. Is there a way around this?

I have a question. I have it set that I get notified of a reply to a topic but I don't get any thing telling me when there is a reply. Am I doing something wrong?

I have come across galaxy pictures to classify which I swear I have already classified before. I have only done about 270 so far. How many pictures are there to classify? Are pictures flagged so that you do not classify them again? Keep reclassifying the same pictures will surely bias the statistics? Or do I just think I have seen this picture before and need a break.

Hi Micro,

It's highly unlikely you'll get the same image more than once, though it is possible. You can check by going into My Galaxies and searching for the one you think you've seen before and seeing if they have the same reference number. As far as I know it's a random feed and there are many thousands of images!

I'm not sure if it's the same for Hubble Zoo - I expect it is - but in any case, it only takes notice of the first time you've classified an image. As for biasing the statistics, lots of people should classify each image, so don't worry too much about that! :)

Hello everyone! I would know how to put the image of my name in galaxies in the signature. I already have the image hosted on Flickr. What was I still can not find where to put the signature. Could someone  tell me exactly which way I should go, step by step?

:) I do not think you can add a signature at this time. That feature is unplugged.
