    Thanks to all that helped!

    --------------------------------




    Okay, we want to pull in the power of the community to help us!

    We get a log of comments that our ranking of coop sizes could be much better, so we want you to help us size the coops in our Chicken Coops section of BYC.

    Pretty simple, just go to the link below and start rating the coops by size:
    http://crowdflower.com/judgments/mob/4829



    NOTE: You'll probably be asked for your email address. This is ONLY used to keep track of the coops you've ranked so you don't get the same coops over and over. If you don't want to put your email address in there... then just make one up. [​IMG]

    Do as many as you can / want to. There is no minimum or maximum... that's the great thing about using the power of our community!

    One of the coops in the first group was inactive.

    I hit submit task and I don't know if it worked or not.

    Basically this is how this works: I took 100 of the top coops and put them into this system. I set it up so each coop will be "ranked" 5 times. So, that is a total of 500 "judgments".

    This can be 100 people doing 5 judgments each, or 5 people doing 100 judgments, or anything in between. [​IMG]

    When it is all done we'll look to see how everyone judged, look for variance in judgment decisions and recalibrate our coop pages!
