Re: Asteroids@home

Kiska already does via his dashboard

Theoretically you could put some special logic in the project selection code. If tasks ready to send are below some chosen value, then the project becomes ineligible. Otherwise if there are enough tasks, business as usual.

Re: Asteroids@home

I don’t think it needs to be removed. But needs to be watched. What happened now is just bad timing where the sprint started while the project was winding down on the current batch. If the sprint was 1-2 weeks earlier there would have been no problem. Asteroids likes to load large batches, millions ...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

No problem my "heldBack" brother in arms, unless you have a point related to the points system I'll pass commenting on your word salad. Enjoy your day SV I literally quoted you saying that I had addressed the point system with this example and you would respond later. but it's clear you n...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

think about the old system hypothetically, logically. say you had two teams, A and B. Team A contributes to all projects but a small contribution that puts them in 11th place on all. now say Team B contributes to only one project but in 10th place. In the old system, Team B would be ranked higher o...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

I too would like to be competitive in the PG challenges, but I don't want to be forced to run PrimeGrid! so unfair of them! :lol: it's clear that Skillz wants this competition to be rooted in supporting all (active) boinc projects. It can help encourage users who wouldn't normally run some projects ...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

what "gaming site" are you referring to? i still don't think you understand that no one "forces" you to do anything. if you don't want to contribute to whatever project you are under no obligation to. it's 100% your own decision. i don't see how you are not already competitive yo...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

I understand what you're saying. but your questions are biased and subjective and you're obviously looking for a specific answer in one direction over the other from the get go. what's better? red or blue? what's better? hot or cold? what's better? black or white? this is the nature of your question...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

lol you're entirely too triggered over this. your team is in the same rank before and after the change (after your gerasim WU submitted). no one is forcing you to do anything. compete or not, it makes no difference. I'm here for fun. I crunch what I want and accept that it holds me back, but I'm not...

Re: is New BG Points System fair?

Honestly your post comes across like you’re complaining because the competition isn’t what you want it to be. But that doesn’t make it unfair. The rules can’t be bent to what you think favors your (or anyone’s) personal way of competing. And it sounds very entitled to suggest that. It’s a different ...
