Let me think it over and I'll PM you w1z.
I think it should be left at 100k 28 days
Probably what I'll leave it at, just want to check a few stats and stuff.
100k in 28 days? That's impossible for me. I have 3 computers running: between my mom's Sempron 3000+ that goes unused 99% of the time, my Athlon II and the Celeron 430 in my server, I only make around 1k ppd. You're asking at least 3.6k ppd now, it takes at least an i7 or a Phenom II X6 to put out those numbers.
Ummm... can anyone see mine? I'm sure it's hiding somewhere...
no no. the pre requisites are to get a badge you need
1. at least 100k points
2. be active in the last 28 days.
we arent asking for 100k a month
We shouldn't set it to active only, but a certain amount in the last 28 days. If not 1 point every 28 days will get you the badge.
it should be something low i think we should make it active only but something like even 3k might be too much. remember while the badge means nothing their are some that will stop folding if they cant let people know they are folding. not alot of people make enough points to make it on the lists in the status threads (FAH/WCG) and so the badge is all they have to get noticed.
Yeah it'll have to be something low. Let me take a look at a few things and I'll let you ll know.
Yup, that's what is in there.
Same, but I always had one machine still on my profile.
Those used to be the requirements, the way it is setup now says you need to have 100k points earned in a rolling 28day period Personally I think that is BS cause an OCed i7 running 24/7 dedicated (like mine) does not hit that requirement if even one day of 24hr use is missed (think lost internet connection, new hardware install, WCG system failures).
7 out of the top 26 Lifetime Producers for the team are excluded from the badge in this setup (including our WCG Mod Paulieg):
So I say change it to no more than 75k per rolling 28day period
And since we are on the topic of badges can we please add the 1million, 2million, etc badges for WCG like we had wanted when they first came about? F@H was setup that way, but WCG was botched.
+1 on everything theonedub just said
Wasn't the pre-requisite before that you had to be 7 days active? IMHO I think the 100K minimum + activity in last 7 days was fine if that was the case before.
Having to do 100K in 28days is not something that rewards the dedicated people, but those with the high-end gear.
And whilst we're talking of badges, please pretty please can we have the Million milestone thing like the F@H. (Crazy cruncher for the 10K PPD+ too?)
come up with a better title
100k in 28 days seems impossible for me, ive even commandeered a roommates rig which has similar stats to mine.
definitely agree to that!
I'm terrible at this, hope someone can come up with something...
But considering 10K PPD gives you PIE every day.. Pie Monster?
just this : Fanatic
over the badge
changed badge requirement to 100k total AND 14k in 28 days (= 500 ppd), until you come up with a better requirement
^ Sounds better. I think 1000-1500 PPD is reasonable for those who are dedicated to the project and team (and not just badge chasing).
mine is still gone and i have met all the requirements?
it will update once per hour, if you want to force an update go to where you enter your wcg username and click on save
you da man wiz!
I can't come up with anything catchy for the 10kppd badge I'll keep thinking about it though
Thanks for the quick work on this W1zzard.
Current dual-cores gives about 1K PPD minimum if used all day, so we can assume that's a reasonable minimum. Thanks for all this W1z
how bout just "Dedicated" ?
