Team registration is OPEN! Get ready to #CrushALZ from 10pm ET TODAY

The moment we've been waiting for is HERE! 🎇

Teams (beta) feature on Stall Catchers is LIVE, and you can start creating teams!

The competition to #CrushALZ will start TODAY, April 6, at 10pm ET. You can start creating teams now & start to play around, although note that all team scores will reset to zero at 10pm ET!

Complete instructions on how to do this below.

Special notice: We need your help cleaning the data! If you're seeing wanky movies in Stall Catchers (e.g. missing outline, an outline that does not align with a vessel, or an outline that jumps to a new spot in the same movie), flag them and make it easier for the next person! This particular dataset was prepared using new automated vessel tracing and - we all know it - machines aren't perfect! But we can fix it :)
