Question For The Screeners

Sun Feb 10, 2013 10:49 pm

Hello everyone! I am sorry if the following has been asked before, but I din't find it in a forum search. Anyway, I was wondering (on average) how many images are typically screened per day. Just curious, that's all. Thanks!

There are two possible answers to that question, depending on whether you mean simply how many individual images were looked at on any given day or how many times individual images were seen by a screener. The latter will always be larger, because some images need to be seen by more than one screener before a decision is made.

In terms of rough estimates (as it can vary greatly from day to day), on a good day the number of images per day is usually just under 1000, while the number of screenings is closer to 1500.

For the past 24 hours (today), the exact numbers are 732 and 1271, respectively.
