To get the most out of the web you should register giving a name or nickname, an e-mail and a password. They are the basic data for you to get the alerts by e-mail, see the previous reports and give yours with greater level of certainty to other users, in the sighting. After registering and being verified your e-mail, you can go to your settings section to receive the notices. Give your usual position. The system automatically takes your position through the browser. If you are accessing the web from your mobile and you have the location activated, your position will be even more exact and you will be able to define the kilometers of the event to which you want them to send you an e-mail. You must also define from which level you want to be warned. Here we must make some divisions with six levels of certainty about the UFO. I must clarify before continuing that I am not referring to the type of contact (one, two or three) but to the level of certainty of possible UFO of an object being seen.
Level 1: An unregistered user gives a warning in the system. With the data collected in the form: A message will be launched on the public Telegram channel. As I commented before UFO-Alert. A tweet will be sent from the UFOAlert_com account, and those who have configured to be warned from the 'level 1' of certainty and in a few kilometres of distance determined with respect to their position will be sent an e-mail.
Level 2: In this level the number of unregistered users of the web that are seeing the object/s are two or more.
Level 3: There is a registered user (so it follows that his e-mail has been verified and its veraciousness is greater) who is seeing the object.
Level 4: More than two registered users are viewing and reporting the object.
Level 5: It has been verified that it is not a known object. Discarded star, plane, helicopter, drone, etc...
Level 6: The object is being photographed and/or recorded and is being reported to the system.
They are indicated in the report form:
- The date/time of the report and date/time of the event. If these two data coincide, the warnings will be issued as soon as the 'Alert!' button is pressed.
- The position of the system is acquired, although it is editable so that the user can enter it manually if it is the report of an old event or believes that the system is giving it badly.
- Delay towards the object. Taking North as a reference, this data is more important if the object is floating a few degrees from the horizontal. That is, it is floating low. For example, at less than 45° tilt the object is in front of you, and the rest of the users should look from your location at the bearing you are giving. Not about your location exactly. On the other hand, if the tilt is more than 45° the object is practically on you. This is an estimate, it doesn't have to be exact. But in this way a good definition of the 'Zone of Uncertainty' can be arrived at with greater accuracy.
- The next two data are from the user. Name and e-mail. If you are registered and logged in, the given level will automatically be 3.
- The remaining fields are to define more or less the object. It is important if you want to let other users know what you are seeing, but if speed prevails do not fill them in at first, the important thing is to warn other users to verify it as well. And maybe some of them with a good team will be able to take quality images of the object.
In all the warnings and through all the channels the data will be informed with a level assigned by the system. Not by the user.
