New version of CHET Tool

We are pleased to announce that we now have a new version of the Chart Error Tool (CHET) (Note that you must be logged in to the website to use it).

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this tool, its purpose is to give you a way to report errors or other issues with AAVSO charts generated using the Variable Star Plotter (VSP). For example, if a variable gets brighter or fainter than it has ever been before and you feel that an extension to the comparison star sequence is needed, you should make a request using CHET.

The Sequence Team members can then use the tool to track requests and let you know when the issue has been resolved. You can also use CHET to see if a chart problem has been reported previously.

Please remember that CHET is not meant for requesting new sequences where none currently exist. That process is explained here.

Many, many thanks to volunteer Phil Manno for doing a great job converting the old code into this new version which is much cleaner and allows for more sorting and filtering options.

If you are interested in helping the AAVSO update and/or develop software tools (particularly if you know Django!) please let me know. Join the fun!
