Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest.
We, the Judges, have strongly considered your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, we have chosen to not advance it to the next round of competition.
We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to the Proposal Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal”.
We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise. During the voting period, you can help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. The Climate CoLab will be opening more contests in the coming months, and you are welcome to submit your proposals to those contests as well.
Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
Judge's Comment: Use of social media to generate information is an appealing idea. I can especially imagine uses for things that only people can report -- illnesses, for example. In that example, researchers could more determine outbreaks and point sources in actionable ways. However, I am not yet convinced about this concept's application to climate change issues. Since, we typically have very good information from satellites and municipal sensors, it's hard for me to imagine a value add. Perhaps for use in developing countries where systems are not in place?
Generally, this felt like a good idea being applied to the wrong problem.
