The 24 Hour Ketta Competition, Coming April 21, 2013
First there was the CrazyMan Challenge. Then there was the @a5hm0r Challenge. Now it’s time for the next chapter in EyeWire player generated competitons: Ketta — and the rules have changed.
On Sunday, April 21, 2013, EyeWire will launch its first 24 Hour Competition. The games begin at 12:01, just after the clock strikes midnight on Saturday. In the past we’ve declared winners immediately based on points. This time, per the suggestion of EyeWirer @ketta, three metrics factor into the winnings:
More than points
The Ketta Competition marks a pivotal point in EyeWire history. We’re almost ready to submit a paper in a leading scientific journal. Before that happens, we need to complete all starburst synapses onto J Cell #1. We’re almost there! Only 17 more starburst branches remain and we must finish by Monday, April 22!
Much more remains to be discovered in EyeWire. Publishing is the first step and will serve to validate both our scientific accomplishments and the EyeWire community to neuroscience as a whole. For now, our focus is finishing this paper and getting it submitted.
Remember to take the EyeWire Player Survey!
