Is there any way that someone with the ability to update the tasking
manager can put requests like this onto it. I know it's not designed for
this type of thing, but I'm sure that something could be cobbled
together? Perhaps imaginery squares in the Pacific ocean or something,
where each square corresponds to a number of identifiable photo's;
Square 1 = photo's 1-20,
square 2 = photo's 21-40 etc.
At the moment it feels as if anyone volunteering to go through the
photo's has to commit to volunteering by email & then do the whole lot
which is something I couldn't commit to.
Thanks for reading.
