Happy Friday! Here are all changes on Eyewire since the last report, even if there was a separate post about something big, so that you have a comprehensive picture of everything new from the last few weeks.

  • We released the Activity Tracker, a major enhancement for accuracy monitoring, based on a script from @KrzysztofKruk! This post has the full details, including info about adjustments to the Settings and Help menus.
  • With our #hackers Slack channel and the successful deployment of the Activity Tracker, it’s safe to say we’ve got a pipeline in place for integrating player-created scripts on a case by case basis. Woohoo!
  • A bug should be fixed wherein the Activity Tracker would show 0% accuracy on seed-only cube submissions; now those cubes should properly appear as 100% accuracy, at least if there was indeed nothing to add.
  • A bug should be fixed wherein trailblazes would never update on the Activity Tracker even after refreshing, or would incorrectly display 100% accuracy before accuracy was calculated.
  • A bug should be fixed wherein Review Mode would show all segments that any players had added, regardless of whether they were in consensus. We suspect that this was the main discrepancy with Review Mode that many of you were experiencing.
  • By popular request, we’ve raised the Level 1 enfranchisement/trailblazing threshold to 80%, just like for Level 2. We’ve never had enfranchisement at 80% for Level 1 before, but for trailblazing it used to be that way, so this is both something new and something old.
  • The Scythe Toolbox’s “Cube” panel now has an extra field of information that will tell you whether the spawner has looked at the cube (“Inspected: Yes”) or not (“Inspected: No”).
  • Our login page now has a randomized array of different images, ranging from neuron renders to shots of the Heroes; whatever comes up, it’s a little more exciting than getting the same picture every time.

Please note that you will have the smoothest Eyewire experience if you use the most recent 64-bit version of Firefox or Chrome, a recent operating system like macOS High Sierra/Windows 10/Ubuntu 16, and a machine with at least 8 GB of RAM.

Next report will be in a couple weeks, though in the meantime you may see new feature posts anyway. For science!
