When I look at the list of finished jobs i see a lot of RADEC jobs.
Only the Ra and dec. position is listed in the object name.

Would it be an idea to also show the user comment and/or the object name given by the user.

This way we can see what observations other users are making.

One of my jobs was # id=252752

The completed job list only mentions the Ra and dec of the object
Object ID 14:04:54.00 +17:16:05.00

It would be nice to see other detail of the job description.
So other users can see that I was observing dwarf planet (136108) Haumea.

My description was

The main reason we don't have this already is that we would then have to moderate peoples comments/names for bad language etc. I'm sure most people who use the site wouldn't dream of abusing it, however you can guarantee there will be one, and we do use the telescope is workshops in schools...

There are also potential security issues associated with letting people set text for public display.

Maybe there is a compromise where we only show the description for non-school users. It's something worth us thinking about.

Maybe a sticky forum thread could be started for stuff like this. "Observations of Unnamed Objects" or similar, and everyone can add their job numbers to it? It would make the list searchable as well.

Just a thought :)
