    Hi there,

    Many thanks, Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Depends on your reasons for contacting the team! If asking on a thread here doesn't help, the full list of team members is here and there's a description of our different roles, so if you have e.g. specific science questions you can figure out who you need to ask there.

    If you have a more general tech support issue and asking here doesn't seem appropriate or isn't useful, try e-mailing support (at) zooniverse (dot) org.

    To expand on vrooje's reply, if you wish to contact a specific GZ Science Team member, you can find their email addresses from papers they are the lead author of. GZ papers resulting from zooites' clicks are listed on the Zooniverse Publications page (click on the top item, "Galaxy Zoo (59)").

    For example, Science Team member Steven Bamford's email address can be found from the "Galaxy Zoo: the dependence of morphology and colour on environment" paper he is the lead author of (the link will take you to the ADS entry for this paper; if you click on the "Full Refereed Journal Article (PDF/Postscript)" link you will get a PDF document which contains his email address).

    That is one way to find it, but depending on which paper it is it might be out of date.

    Possibly it's easier just to use Google: continuing the example JeanTate started, once you've decided you want to contact him, Googling "Steven Bamford Nottingham" or "Steven Bamford Astrophysics" etc. will bring up as the first result a page that has his e-mail address on it...
