We're out of data - for now!

Hi everybody!

We're out of data - for now! Panthoots and thanks to everyone who helped us finishing classifications on the most recent Green Snowflake site. Chimp matching is still ongoing for Green Snowflake and several other old sites like the memorable Restless Star site. The science team and the moderators will use the hiatus to clean up all finished Chimp&See sites. If you want to get involved shoot us a message.

A new site and many more along the way will start on a shiny new interface in early 2019.

If you want to get involved in the ongoing chimp matching or help us tag the classified monkey videos to the species level for our ongoing "Monkey See" project please visit our discussion pages on Talk. The mini-projects Animal Selfies and Leopard Identification will run in the background until the switch too. If you want to discuss something - the discussion boards are regularly checked and you will get a response!

Pictured here: our "drama queen" Petra from the Green Snowflake - a summary posting from the Green Snowflake site will follow soon!

Thank you so much and stay tuned for the next site on the new interface!

Chimp&See will soon be paused till 2019 but chimp matching will still continue on Talk!

Hi everyone!

We have been revamping the chimp&see site to move to the new Zooniverse platform and make a lot of improvements along the way

We are working on making some of the workflows more fun, easier and more tailored to what people like to do :) and best of all, we'll be adding versions of the site in more languages!

While we go through this process we've decided to pause videos going up on [after this current set is done] but there will still be lots of discussions going on, on to do chimp matching and chimp naming! Our amazing mods have been incredible in committing to finishing up all the pending chimpIDs so we can move forward with a clean slate and no more back log!

We will need your opinions on chimp matching and look forward to having you around Talk during the main platform pause!

New to chimp matching? check out this awesome how to video and then get started here:

and check out this amazing chimp identification guide and quiz from BBCOne:

and if chimp matching isn't your thing - we hope to see you back in January for a big new set of videos to annotate!

Thank you so much for your contribution so far and looking forward to working together with you in the future!

Pant hoots to you all!
