Bit Utopia has begun fundraising for Milkyway. They will generate Bitcoins which will then be converted to US Dollars and donated to Milkyway via Paypal.

This is simply awe-inspiring. A BOINC project that crunches to raise money for another BOINC project. Wonderful, wonderful.

I too had a question about the "joined Milky Way badge"?? The badge tutorial says you can recieve 0 to 4 badges,wondering how you get 4 if the "joined" badge is not a "gimmee"? In any case Thank You for your hard work

I think 4 is wrong there... the "joined/100 credits" badge is replaced by the 10k badge as soon as you reach 10000 credits. It's also not a "joined" or "1 completed WU" badge as stated in the corresponding news, but a 100 credit badge, IIRC in the past we also had WUs, which paid less than 100 credits, so one such WU won't be enough to get the badge. And than there is the "years of service" badge and the "special contribution" badge, so 3 is maximum I think.


And yet right there on the front page it says:

"As a user, you can expect to have between 0 and 4 badges on your MW profile"

Welcome to the forums, now don't let these be your only posts!!! You can both learn alot and help those who know less then you do.


Is there anything in particular I need to learn?

I doubt there is anything I can teach anyone here. I'm just running BOINC.


I was talking about Boinc, there are soooo many things about running Boinc that sooo many newbies have no clue about. I see you have been running Boinc for quite a while, PG since 2007, there are alot of people that really have no clue how to make it better.


Hardly a day goes by when I don't pick up some tidbit about the BOINC-verse, often from my awesome teammates but also from great folks like Mikey.

Sometimes posting your experiences/problems helps a lot of people who are in the same boat as you and just didn't feel brave enough to post.

Be encouraged, 99% of the people on the BOINC forums are helpful and great to talk to.

Great news!

Glad you found the time Travis!

Sorry however because my account shows a 1M badge and I have 3M cr.

Also, the 100 cr badge is not showing. I thought that this was an additional badge - the "Joined MW@H" badge, rather than a "Credit Earned" badge.

So far so good.

Can you please check out why it still sends me N-Body WUs even though I have set my preference to No N-Body work.
