    Change either of the drop down boxes to 'anytime (all devices)'. After you refresh your devices then hopefully your numbers will match.

    are you referring to your milestone only being 30k? :confused: cause if so there is a difference between wcg points and bionic points....

    wcg points are multiplied by 7, that's all it is :D

    we mostly go by BOINC points.

    BOINC points are what is reported by the BOINC manager. WCG started running originally on a U.D. client that wasn't related to BOINC, but when they shifted over to BOINC they had to keep the credits in line with everything else so that old contributions weren't overinflated compared to newer contributions, so they set it so that a BOINC point is 7 of the original WCG credits.

    that doesnt make sense i didnt do anything for WCG before TPU so i guess im just not seeing how i have 200k points and only 30k bionic points....i mean i can see how its not fair...like if i folded for seti@H years ago and got like 800k points and hen switched to bionic it would be unfair that all of a sudden i have 800k points....but i havent contributed until TPU so why does it do this for me? the system just seems flawed imo. and i suppose it does make sense..but imo what doesnt make sense is that we all go by bionic and not WGC.....i mean..im not in it for the badge..its just confising...i mean..why not jus include stats from people who fold for TPU in WCG...like again..say i folded for WCG in the past..and got a ludicous amount of points...then why not count the points iv earned while folding for TPU instead of as a whole? im sure their is a way to do it...and it would keep things fair because it wouldnt count points done from before..only team spacific...it just looses me that we count points from something that isnt technically what we started to fold for to begin with.

    It really doesn't matter Sol, you have 30k BOINC pts. X 7 = 210k WCG pts. It's the same thing.

    It's not unfair, if you have 7 million WCG points from before, it still translates into 1 million BOINC points now. All they did was level the playing field so people who crunched before are in line with people who are crunching now, since they changed the points system. It's really just a matter of scale. You don't lose any points.

    Thank you. I might be replacing my dual core with a quad soon as well. That'll increase my output a bit more too!

    I should be increasing my output by a 24/7 E4600, after convincing the owner of the machine that WCG won't slow anything down and it won't "heat up the memory" :D
    I just now have to get over there to do it.

    It's at my friend's house, about 5 miles away. I'm probably going over there later this week when we get together to go biking.

    I've just ordered a new mb (GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P) so that I can build another dedicated crunching/folding rig. I'll probably get an Athlon II x4 620 to put in it. This will add a quad core for crunching and 2 more pci-e slots for folding.
