This was a bit premature from Darren. The site is not ready to switch over yet, but hopefully will be in the next few days. Watch this space!

Hey Zooniverse folks,

Just a heads-up that, as of today, the Zooniverse home page has shifted over to a new design that supports our new project platform.

You may notice a few differences; for instance, a username change may be required to access projects on the new platform if you have a space or symbol in your username. The new profile pages also may be missing some elements for a while (a week or more, even), but don’t worry: your stats and classification counts have been preserved, and they are migrating and coming back!

Please note that all current Zooniverse projects and Talks will be unaffected and should continue to operate just as they have. This will not affect this project you are currently on!

The new Talk system is also attached to the new home page, and feedback will be very important in how we may move forward with it. There is also now a central Zooniverse Talk where we hope that people from all projects will be able to mingle and discuss common topics—like, for instance, all of these changes and updates!

Finally, there is now post from Chris Lintott on the Zooniverse Blog explaining these changes in more detail.

Any questions or feedback, please chime in on the Zooniverse Talk. See you there!

Onwards and upwards,

DZM

Any word on the changeover mentioned in this post? Also FYI if you didn't already know it, the cool map at the top of the home page no longer displays the little yellow tracks of where we have done classifications.

Thanks guys
