Hi, I don't think you will be contacted, but if you go to http://www.planethunters.org and hover your name, click on 'my stars' and then click on 'planet candidates' this should tell you. You may also want to look at http://www.planethunters.org/candidates A blog has just been posted as well http://blogs.zooniverse.org/planethunters/2012/03/08/new-planet-hunters-co-discoveries/

Happy hunting.

Found a good page about variable star light curves on the AAVSO site (American Association of Variable Star Observers):

http://www.aavso.org/types-variables

I hope it's also useful to other novices.

And another site (courtesy of Capella):

When trying to enter your web site, I keep getting the message that I don't have the latest IE. The fact is, I do have the very latest, IE10.

Then I keep on getting a message about activating Cookies, which I do.

When trying to enter your web site, I keep getting the message that I don't have the latest IE. The fact is, I do have the very latest, IE10.

Then I keep on getting a message about activating Cookies, which I do.

The orange message is just to let you know about cookies, but the IE10 issue is new for me. Does the site work when you use a different browser like Chrome or Firefox.
