Hi. Great start to the program! Congratulations.

If I may make a suggestion?

I would do two things;

#1 Double or triple the points awarded to a completed WU, this has the effect of making the leader board dynamic and moving as the point totals change quicker. right now the points awarded are on the low end of project rewards and tripling them would up your membership desirability ten fold. Make it a project people want to crunch for the competition.

#2 Change the updates from once a day to (at a minimum) four times a day. I would suggest six times a day like Collatz. This has the effect of giving users a reason to come back to see the updates and generate some excitement on the leaderboard races....

I know you are still setting up and auto WU generation is a priority, but these two changes would go a long way to making this a real fun project for the cruncher to have fun with crunchin.

I changed period of stats update to 4 hours. The new credit system (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/CreditNew) is difficult and I do not see a way to change credits granting, except as increase estimate of the number of floating-point operations required to complete the job (fpops_est). But the current value approximates the reality. Maybe there is another way that I did not notice? I try to recalculate fpops_est, perhaps I was mistaken when calculating it.

If it isn't already in the works, I would suggest implementing badges (not just the default BOINC badges). This is a great way to attract users! (Like me :) )

i just must say; This is the first project using CreditNew,were the the cred-payment is OK !!

But if you would like more people to crunc this project, as EG say`s.. You can use Fixed cred
,(i think this is a preset score rewarded only by a validated Wu)
Maybe there is cruncher`s out there that now how Fixed Cred works, that can explain!?
i`m not sure how it works......

Edit; Thanks for the upcoming Badges :)

They make it difficult on purpose, it's a Berkeley thing, contact another Project and they should be able to help you.

A friend made a sketch of badge at my request



Will it go?

Unfortunately, I do not know how to draw :)

You can offer your sketches.
We then choose the best option.

Эскиз моего друга никому не понравился?
Предложений тоже нет.

Progger
сейчас посмотрела значки в проекте Amicable Numbers.
Вот, например, тут
https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/top_users.php

И так значки выглядят в учётной записи участника
https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/show_user.php?userid=2786

Ничего сверхмудрого я не вижу в этих значках. Точно такие же квадратики с надписью на них.

Мой друг прислал мне несколько эскизов значков. Пару эскизов я вам посылала.
Поскольку работа над значками у нас застопорилась, друг остыл к эскизам :)
Надо бы довести начатое до конца.
Понимаю, что у вас много работы. Но... если что-то откладывать раз, откладывать два, то оно так сильно отложится, что уже не будет сделано никогда.
Пример наглядный: 256Ghz в проекте Stop@home. Обещал сделать значки... и точно по поговорке: обещанного три года ждут :)

We have several sketches.
Unfortunately, Progger is now busy with another important work.
But he promises to make badges.
We will hope :)

Progger
этой команде (в проекте ODLK1)
1 SETI.USA 14 364,666 10,912,394 United States Другое

надо выдать значок за 10 миллионов.
Вы ещё не сделали автоматическую выдачу этого значка?
Сделайте, пожалуйста, потому что можно и не увидеть, где уже есть 10 миллионов.
Вот эту команду видно, потому что она в первой позиции.
