This is the information provided by Wheresgeorge about what they call "alternate hits".

When having the hit, I received the following information by email and although it was an "alternate hit", I felt quite happy:

"Your 2003A One dollar bill with serial number E6444---4H has just been re-entered as an Alternate Hit into Where's George?!

When I did open the links and understood about "alternate hits", I thought it was a clever way of dealing with such hits, instead of our endless discussions on the S&U forum.

A hit on a dead straight line is quite interesting because it is quite unusual. That may be scored on deviation from 0º/180º or 90º/270º.

i don't want to interfere too much in this complicated subject, but perhaps, it could be a "first step" if a simple, open system of "notation" (for instance from 0 to 5 "stars"; or from 0 to 5 "points") open to anybody. We vote if we like or dislike the hit, just like a "poll". Why not ?

Because people may give 0 points because they dislike one of the persons involved instead of the hit? (Shame on them!)

+1 ;)

For your information, this point has been already AGREED by the Board. But due to a serious lack of persons into the Dev WG, it's actually impossible to give you this "system". I think, for more reasonable and/or simple use, that just a "I like" button can be operational :arrow: the more "likes" are given by the EBTers, the more interesting Hit is.
