Mark2Cure photo contest update, new doc set, and morePosted by ginger on Jun 26, 2015 in citizen science, crowdsourcing, mark2cure, sulab | 0 comments
Alacrima–done! You did it! Now for that pesky CDG…
Thanks to you, the Alacrima doc set has been completed. We’ve added a new doc set, but the CDG and O-glycosylation doc sets still need a lot of help. The CDG doc set is already close to 80% complete, but it is a huge doc set. Help complete it: http://mark2cure.org.
Max has been busy adding small features here and there as he prepares to work on building a dedicated discussion forum for our community and adding copy/paste functionality. Some of our new features include:
- Changes to Training 4– We’re listening carefully to your suggestions on how to improve this module, hopefully the new fixes help
- Quick stat box– See your own stats quickly on the dashboard
- Leaderboard improvements– Top the monthly, weekly, or daily charts! Contribute today and make your mark!
- Load times– Max has been optimizing some of the code so the dashboard and docs should load much more quickly now.
In case you missed Andrew’s live stream talk about Mark2Cure at the Stanford Big Data to Biomedicine conference, Stanford has finally released the video.
Congratulations to our photo contest winner!
She wins a nifty Mark2Cure t-shirt. We still have two left, so we’re extending the deadline to the end of July. Enter the contest for a chance to win one.
Here’s how to enter:
- Take a selfie or a photo with a sign explaining Why you mark2cure.
- Email the photo to gtsueng(at)scripps(period)edu and include your Mark2Cure user name, so we can see your contributions.
- Share your photo online (no need to include your user name when you share) preferably on facebook or twitter (#WhyIMark2Cure)
According to our last poll half of our voters thought the new green was distinct enough from the blue, and the other half disagreed. You’re still welcome to make your opinion count here.
This week’s poll is focused on the newly revamped leaderboard.
