Breaking news! Our new team feature will be fully embraced during a month-long TEAMS COMPETITION that starts tomorrow, April 6, and will last for 1 month!
YOU are invited to create a team for your organization or community and compete among others for the ultimate goal to #CrushALZ. Some teams suggestions for our old timers:
stardust@home team - we have some dedicated dusters from stardust who have become dedicated catchers in these last few months how about a team that unites all your efforts?? (@Nikita, @evelynrsmith, other dusters??)
Zooniverse team? I know @Alice has lured some Galaxy Zoo & other Zooniverse veterans to Stall Catchers too what do you say guys?
Oldtimers team could also unite all of us, ha!
- sponsored by @pietro it seems that the EyesOnALZ team will be roped into an... EyesOnALZ team
- I know @Claire is already setting up a team for CitSciGamers! Woohoo!
- we also might have a general team Citizen Science, Cornell Team & Alzheimer's Research UK have already confirmed that they are joining, and we expect many more soon!
Any other ideas?
The most active teams will be featured daily & weekly with the help of our new Today/This week/All time team leaderboards, and the winners will be announced on May 6!
Most importantly, a completely new dataset will be loaded to Stall Catchers (more about it in a bit) for the purpose of the competition, and after one month we hope to have answered a novel research question that pushes the groudbreaking findings of the Schaffer-Nishimura Lab (Cornell University) one step further.
GET READY! The competition starts tomorrow, 10PM ET April 6 / 2AM UTC April 7, right after the premiere of The Crowd & The Cloud documentary!
