I want to know what happened to the feature that told you if a possible ET was found, and the map that mapped the work you did on a sky/star map.

I believe you're referring to the Near Time Persistency Checker (or "Nit picker"). It isn't running because it is too database intensive and the database is too massive for it to run reliably.

The map was a third party add on program for Seti Classic. Don't know what happened to the developer or if it got ported into the BOINC era.

Feature of a possible find? NTPCKR (Near Time Persistency ChecKeR) never got functional. I can't remember if any third party had some item from the classic days or not.
