    considering we have 200 people in our team id say that was an accurate statement seeing as only 14 qualify.

    Actually we only have about 50 active members. That's people who turn in something at least once a week. Fourteen out of 50 is not bad.

    You are using CPU cycles on all this information. I noticed that I on my e8400 uses somewhere arond 0.3% on CPUID (and almost 20 % on my two GPU3's :nutkick:).

    According to Free-DC, there are 307 people on our WCG. IMO 2 or 3 of 307 is a far smaller percentage than 14 of ~200.

    Hmm, most people use Free Dc though, we can make a announcement thread to inform all members?

    I prefer BOINCStats :p

    I do think that it makes sense to link to the WCG user page, and then use the points as reported by Free-DC or BOINCStats...or we could just use WCG points for the stars?

    IE 5 stars would instead be 100k WCG instead of 15k BOINC?

    Guys it was always like this, let's not turn this into what the badges thread turned into. I'll try to use WCG points, but if not it stays how it is!

    Oh excellent :D

    Maybe....
    badge + 1 star - 3k
    badge + 2 stars - 15k
    badge + 3 stars - 35k
    badge + 4 stars - 50k
    badge + 5 stars - 100k or greater

    How would this be? IDK if it's even possible to get the daily points easily straight from WCG

    Something similar I found. My i7's lose between 500 to 1000 PPD on WCG with the dual 460s folding and other server duties. It's probably due to the low-priority nature of the projects. Can't be helped I suppose, but think it's still the best combination to make use of all the hardware.

    EDIT:
    Did you forget the golden rule of points? WCG = BOINC * 7
    Otherwise you'd be increasing the requirement. ;)

    (Oops, sorry got my calculator out.. self-fail)

    Running my GTS450 drops the PPD of my i7 by about 300, while the GTX260 only drops it by about 100 PPD :ohwell:

    Oh, and I'm coming for you :p

    My RAC is just getting started ;)

    BOINC is showing my average as ~8k, but it's probably actually closer to ~16k now...18k yesterday and already 13k so far today :D

    Yea, I know you'll be catching up very quickly. But I'll make it real hard for you hehe. I'm on 8K ATM, so the closer I can get to yours the longer it will take you ;)

    I got some unfortunate problems coming my way soon that won't allow me to spend money so easily anymore. But all that means it that it's going to take a little longer to get my new rigs. Either an X6 or two i3's before my 1yr anniversary with the team.

    But 2Million points before the 19th December is my first goal. Regardless, it's nice to have someone putting so much into it, respect :respect:

    GL on the 2mil, my goal is to get to 2mil this year :)

    Make it as hard as you can--please!, but if anything, I'm probably just going to be going up in terms of PPD. Relentless cruncher here :D

    I would prefer to keep the badges just the way they are, and implementing the stars with the original requirements.

    well luckily your opinion is not the only one that counts:D .... having the stars or something similar might help push the badge chasers into being more productive
