What are these boards fore ?
Why does some show this to the cam ?
Im getting curious now c",)
Yes, I wonder what information is on the board that isn't already captured in work schedule records. The only thing that comes to my mind is a program in India that required teachers to take a photo of themselves and their class at the beginning of the day and again at the end. The photos (with their date/time stamp) were used to record teacher attendance. In some schools teacher attendance rose to something like 70% when this was implemented. I wouldn't think the Serengeti Lion project would need to supervise staff using camera shots, so I wonder why they do it?
Maybe they're calibrating the light levels? Or it's a backup record of the date the camera was serviced and the code of the camera SD card?

tirralirra is right, we start each SD card with an identifier in case the cards get mixed up -- we tried to remove all the identifiers before posting them on Zooniverse... We don't do anything to adjust the light levels, though...
