the double credit idea is ok and welcome but wouldnt you be better not announcing when it takes place

1. this will lead people who very rarely if ever crunch for the project suddenly turning up then vanishing after the double credit period is over

Or just take a period of past days and run a script to double the user credit for that period. No extra server load at all :)

...believe me ordinary crunchers that work here and deserve the credits will notice within minutes there getting extra credit

not all devout MW@H crunchers have the luxury of running MW@H 24/7 when they are equally as devoted to other projects. i cannot run MW@H and S@H on my GPU simultaneously. as such, i have to suspend MW@H while crunching S@H and vice versa. if i suspend MW@H to catch up on some S@H work, and no announcement is made about the double credit period, i could get screwed along with lots of other "ordinary" crunchers.

in short, this solution leaves quite a bit to be desired.

i don't know if its a simpler solution with respect to coding, but it sure seems like a much better solution.

ok, it was an error of the boinc Server, now it's corrected, and the extra credit is away :-(.

To the discussion: I think it should be announced, because this would be a good stresstest for the enviroment. And when it works also a good reputation for the project.

Mayby some more Wu's in the cache (24/GPU would be nice). That helps people with a little unstable internet connection (like me).

greetings

This is a very good idea. No one knows when it happend and the to MW devoted crunchers get the credits.
However I must admit I don't crunch for credits, only the science I find usefull and interesting. And for MW only during cheap power rate hours.

It should be for existing users only. Since new users would not have had an 'inconvience'.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

I think this will be too exhausting and ther wil be no advertising effect for new crunchers.

I agree. Should be done quietly and surreptitiously and all
the crunchers will get a happy surprise.

I could work with that.

I'd still like a cpu app first.

We have taken note of all the suggestions.

According to Travis...

We really need to get the bug of workunits getting canceled early fixed first. After that it'll be a go


So it is on it's way. Please refrain from asking when it will occur--I assure you it will occur when we have resolved the above issue.

Thank you for your patience.
