Hello EyeWirers! I've started this as a section where you can post screen shots of things you've got questions about. If you had trouble with a particular piece post it, we'll take a look at it, and help you figure out what to do next time.

Yup, that's pretty normal. The black part is actually the cell wall being sliced in half. So you are seeing the top half of the cell wall.
Actually, now that I look at the edge of that cube, it looks like part of it was an AI error.
Ok Petels, That dark blue piece in there was your start piece, it looks like it goes from one side of the cube to another and (probably) didn't actually have much to add. Look at the light blue piece in the 2D, see how there are a bunch of dark lines in there? That's a good indication that several things that don't go together have been put together (coloring inside the lines!) What happened is that the dark blue piece tried to go through the light blue piece, and failed. I assume you couldn't see the outline of the dark blue piece once it hit the light blue? That can happen when there was an error with the staining (when there's not enough dye in a certain area you can't see the outline of the cell, and the AI starts messing up).
THANKS! It makes so much more sense now that I've ignored the top dark blue slice and everything I added because of it.
This is for GrimReaper, just curious if you think this is a bad click on a strand that should be hanging in space, or if this blob is possibly connecting to something in a different cube?
@emptystorm from what I can see it looks like your should leave it attached, but you're right that it looks very odd.
I am on firefox and get no 3d. double clicking does nothing....is there a way to start the tutorials over without signing up again? I am a little slow.........
@morp1949, there isn't yet a way to redo the tutorial without creating a new account. Do you have Chrome on your computer? It tends to work a bit better with the site and might fix the 3D problem.
Not sure what this marbled swirly looking thing is. It has no bearing on the J cell; I'm just curious.
For now try http://imgur.com/ it lets you upload the image to their site and gives you a url you can insert. You'll want the Direct Link (email and IM) option. To insert an image you click on the 3rd icon from the right (it's a little picture) on tool bar above the message box.
Here are the screens:
is this right? I've never seen this before. It seems like the nucleus of the cell or something.
here is another shot with a better slice showing the area in question.
