Adding an "I don't know how many spiral arms there are" option

    Sometimes I see a spiral galaxy but I can't tell how many arms there are. Could you add a i don't know button?

    Well, I suppose many people would rather take the easy "don't know" rather than make the effort of making a guess. I would be tempted.

    Number of spiral arms???

    This blog post has a really good explanation of why we don't have an "I don't know" button. The blog was written for Snapshot Serengeti, but the same reasoning applies to Galaxy Zoo! 😃
