    He was really helpful before he left and did a lot for the team (which everyone does, not favoring anybody here). So I decided to reward him with a custom title. :toast:

    After 5,000 posts you do. You can replace the stars under your name with a custom title. :)

    You have to PM a site administrator for that though.

    100,000 points on our team stats, and to get all 5 stars your daily output has to be like 12,500 points per day.

    I think 1000 ppd/day but that's a question you should ask in this thread because this thread here is a welcome thread. You should be done with this thread now.

    Thanks guys, it's an honor to join the team
    I saw that WCG is more flexible compared to F@H, in folding you can use both CPU and GPU but it'll use them @100% all the time and that effects my daily usage because i only have my main rig to do work on, but i can have more control over WCG and it's easy to configure.

    btw do you have certain projects to work on or anything will do?

    any of the projects that falls under wcg. other groups may have diff projects but we get mostly the same ones with the excption of beta's once in a while if you set it to get them. beta's are all up to you though.

    Welcome to the team! :toast:

    Here's my method for determining what projects to run (I create different device profiles that give only certain projects):
    - For a computer with very little RAM (like my C2D laptop), I give it only Computing For Clean Water and Help Conquer Cancer WUs (these use the least RAM)
    - For really slow computers (provided there is enough RAM) I give them Computing for Sustainable Water, Computing for Clean Water, and Help Conquer Cancer
    - For computers with limited network bandwidth, I stay away from the Clean Energy project
    - For everything else, I'll dedicate the computer to solely the project I'm trying to get a badge in--for that reason, everything except my C2D laptop is currently running C4SW WUs.
