Coming soon (NfN 3.0)
Well, the time has just about arrived. If you are active on the Zooniverse in general or NfN Talk you have heard us mention an upcoming update to NfN that has been in the works for some time. We have been functioning on the NfN 2.0 platform (aka Panoptes) for almost three years now. We launched NfN 2.0 on June 16th, 2016. With over 1 million classifications and close to 8,000 registered volunteers we have outgrown that platform and are just about ready to move to NfN 3.0! There are lots of details to work out, but we plan to launch this week and hopefully as soon as this Wednesday.
There are some projects such as Snapshot Safari that have are utilizing this new platform that is called Organizations. You’ll notice that the look and feel is largely the same, but the site will now feature Projects that allow for more specific content to be added by our data providers.
It is worth noting that there will be no disruption of service for NfN during the upgrade and that all current expeditions on NfN 2.0 will be accessible and will be completed before, during and after the transition if needed.
Thanks to all our data partner providers and volunteers for making NfN such a success. We also want to thank the Zooniverse team for all their support and development!
