This page is a translated version of the page The Consensus and the translation is 33% complete.

In order to produce the most accurate data, EyeWire accepts the consensus, a sophisticated combination of the players traces, for each cube.

## Contents

### Weight

• Every time a player submits a cube, it gains 1 weight.
• When the cube hasn't been trailblazed yet, its weight is 0.

#### 可信度（Confidence Values）

• Since different players might trace a cube differently, the segments inside the cube may have different confidence values.
• A confidence value is the likelihood that a segment belongs in a cube.
• The likelihood that a segment is included in the consensus is dependent on how many players included that segment in their trace.

#### Scythe Weight

• When reaping a cube, a Scythe has weight 2.
• This weight is used to fix a merger, missing branch, or missing nub.
• Often it is necessary for multiple Scythes to reap a cube in order to change the confidence of the segments.

#### Reaper Weight

• Admins and the GrimReaper have a weight of one million when reaping a cube.
• They also use this this to fix mergers, missing branches, and missing nubs.
• Because of the high weight, it only requires one Admin to change a cube.
• This can often cause problems when a Scout or Scythe finds a merger, missing branch, or missing nub in a reaper weighted cube.

• Admins freeze cubes to prevent players from playing them.
• Cell bodies are frozen because:
• they are not useful for the research that is being conducted.
• the AI does not segment them well since it is designed to segment branches.
• they take a long time to trace
• they slow down the players' computers.
• Some cubes will be frozen when there is a serious AI merger in the cube that cannot be removed.

Duplicate Cubes will also be frozen.

#### 双重方块（Duplicate Cubes）

• 一块方块里的片段同时用在了不同的细。胞里，称这样的方块为双重方块
• 这样的情况往往意味着其中一个细胞存在杂合体
##### Spliced Branches
• If there was a merger in a past cell and it has been removed, the Duplicate cube will automatically splice the branch up until the point at which the merger was removed
• This can greatly accelerate the tracing process of the cell.

### 孵化箱（The Spawner）

• The Spawner creates a cube when the consensus shows that the branch extends.
• It uses some parts of the last cube as the seed.
• It also updates the weight and confidence values of a cube after a player submits it.
