|One of the notification settings is worded as "Your image was favorited"; is a favorite a like?|
# 30 Sep, 2016 04:39
Sure, good idea! Straight to my list

That's the old name for bookmarks, I need to remove that setting, thanks!

Okay, makes sense!|
Also, I've been meaning to bring up for a long time that double quotes don't show up correctly in emails.

Now you can specify advanced setting for the plate-solving process, allowing you to give hints to the engine. Hints include a minimum and maximum field size, and a RA/dec position (with a radius for precision) for your image.
The Actions menu was getting too crowded, so I spun off a few things to a new Edit menu.
This was Phase 1. Phase 2 will see a higher success rate for submissions, and Phase 3 will see a bit more details about the plate-solving job on the image page.
Let me know if you find any problems!

Phase 2 or the Plate-solving improvements is now complete! You get:
PLEASE NOTE: this only works on new images

There's now a nicer looking placeholder for images that are still loading, and the stories on the front page get a thumbnail that's the correct size, so they'll be faster to download.

|Just love the new annotation overlay.Thank you, Salvatore.|
# 12 Oct, 2016 14:23
|The new plate solving overlay looks fantastic. However I am finding that some of the overlays don't align correctly with the image. An example can be found here: http://www.astrobin.com/267930 However when I submit the image directly to Astrometry.net it comes back perfect so there must be something going wrong with the overlay mechanism.|

toxophilusThanks for the report, I'll look into it!

|new plate solving looks much better!|

Hi Salvatore, first of all congratulations you make a great job !|
I wonder how many astro photographers joined Astrobin and how many by country ?
What about a counter ?

here's data about the most active countries:

Image scale is no longer shown with plate solving results? Am I missing something? I thought that was a useful number to display.
# 17 Oct, 2016 18:23
|Hi Jason, sounds like something broke. Will look into it.|
# 18 Oct, 2016 18:18
Jason GuenzelIt's back but only for new plate-solve jobs. So if you want it where it's missing, you need to start a new plate-solving job via the Edit menu.

|Thanks for the quick update!|

Hi, very small update but noteworthy.|
Images now get a field to save when they were first published (i.e. either uploaded directly as public images, or when they were first promoted from the staging area to the public area.)
This way, if you keep an image in the staging area for a long time to continue editing it, and then you make it public, it will still be eligible for IOTD submission and not out the window.
Hope this helps!

Another update today:|
The Leaderboard is now renamed to Trending astrophotographers and it features filtering by "Last 6 months", "Last year" (default), and "All time".
Unfortunately this change means that that page will be unavailable for up to 24 hours… sorry about this, it was unavoidable.

|Please note: due to an issue, the search index is offline, and it takes about 12 hours to rebuild it. Affected areas include the Search, the Trending astrophotographers, the AstroBin indexes. Sorry about the inconvenience!|

|The Astrobin index (for me at least) is different on the top right ( 68.08 ) and trending page for the last 6 months ( 56.19 ).|
