You may have noticed some upgrades to the SciCast interface that should make your experience even better! For instance, during Incentive Weeks (when you can win prizes) we’ve added new Leaderboard views. You can now toggle to see the leaders for each prize day.
Survey response rates typically decline with age, and newer technologies are better for surveying younger people, so we were surprised by the self-reported ages of people who volunteered to take our survey. See the distribution below. The number of users who are 25-32 years and users who are 60-69 years are about equal. We even have a fair number of users 80 and older.
Because only a small portion of users completed the survey, it’s possible that self-selection might have skewed the results, but there’s no good way to tell. Whether or not you think that graph represents our core users, the best way for us to find out is for more people to take the survey. It’s broken into four parts that you can find by logging in and clicking on the “Profile and Settings” tab on your dashboard. See below.
