Thanks Fabio!

@rebirther
What are you, the credit police? Let it go. This isn't your project, its Fabio's. WE are happy with HIS decision and the credits. Lets get crunching! Thank you.


No Iam not but I dont want an inflation of the credit system. The best one at start of BOINC would be to count only Workunits, its better to see what we have done not stupid credits, just my 2 cents...


@rebirther
Yes you are and your concern about the credit system is irrevalent. Stop whining and trying to push you ideals off on the rest of us. People like you, DA and your cadre of credit police, need to stop trying to control the credit process and being a royal pain in the ass. It's a project's decision on what they pay, not yours. What part of that don't you understand??

I suggest you detach from this good paying project and move on to one that pays more in line with your thinking, say EON or CAS. There are plenty of projects that refuse to pay well for user help and I'm sure they need people just like you. MY $.02

@Fabio

Your plan sounds fine. Run with it. Don't get sidetracked by "special interests".

This will be good. I was going to tell you I was detaching because the credits were just too low for me to continue supporting this project. I am dropping some other projects as well for the same reason. While I am not a credit hound, I do like getting a good return on for my time. The one thing that has kept me here is the smoothness of this project. I rarely have problems getting work or reporting work. That's a big plus in my book.

Excellent move Fabio, I see you added the ReCaptcha program. You the MAN!

Fabio,
FWIW, you need to implement an anti-spam program into the profile creation/editing process or the spammers will fill your database with thousands of ads. A good program for that is called 'ReCaptcha' were a human response is required to match numbers/letters/words before a profile can be created or edited. Once the spammers find your database is unprotected, you'll have a mess on your hands.

I wish to express a point of view I hold that may help some of you see the big picture. Distributed computing is NOT about competition. It's about helping various projects, using a common software program called BOINC,to process their research thru the issuance of 'work units. As a reward for doing so, we are given credits for the work done. There is no momnetary value to the credits, but they have an 'compensatory' value, similiar to medals or trophies do for various sports.

DC is an all volunteer program that we participate in for pleasure. We are not here because it's our job, our lively hood, rather we are here for our personal enjoyment. It's free and fun for all!

Sadly, what is happening is that way to many of you have taken distributed computing as your own personal 'arena' and are attempting to set rules by which we have to play by. What utter nonsense. DC is no one's personal domain and there are no rules, nor should there be. Any rules applicable here are a project's domain. Not the hosts. Rules on how you connect with them, the applications you must use and how you report your findings are the only rules needed.

The increasingly hostility between participants is not what distributed computing is about. Some participate for the science. Some for the credits. And some for a little of both. But in all case it is for the enjoyment. When it ceases to be fun, it's time to leave. For all you people that are whining about who has what credits, how they got them, or how unfair all of it might be, please remember this is all about helping the projects. Stop taking it personally and just enjoy knowing you are helping science. All this hostility is uncalled for and frankly, disgusting.

Lighten up!
