    Just curious- do comments ever get used for data collection and/or analysis?

    Comments aren't part of the data collection or analysis; they're for anecdotal observations, for the benefit of you and I 😃

    I'm sure a moderator will provide a more complete response tomorrow!

    @lpilarsk It's a good question. In some projects tags from comments play a very important role in the classification data processing (Chimp&See).

    But in many projects (like PW) the researchers don't use any comments from our volunteers, they only work with the classification results.

    Anyway, it is good to follow the FAQs and recommendations by the moderators on various project Talks while using tags in your comments.

    We, moderators of PW, do read all the comments that appear on the Talk. And when we find something that is worth an attention of our scientists, we inform them immediately.
