    Just did a search for Crunch in google for some ideas:

    Crunch Buster

    I stopped crunching when I got my wgc badge in order to get f@h badge. Now I'm sharing my pc between folding (gpu) and crunching (cpu) but my wgc badge is gone and I don't know why is gone.

    I don't think get wgc badge is so easy, at least in my case, because when my cpu crunches 24/7 it gets 1000ppd so within 28 days it'll get 28k not 100k.

    Edit: Or maybe I'm wrong about what points are considered. :wtf:

    Wiz changed it to 14k in 28days... go to your user cp... edit options then click save changes that shoud get you your badge back if you fall in the requirements!

    I think the 100k + 14k in the last 28 days is good, that's a number that most should be able to maintain with ease :toast:

    W1zz, while we're discussing badges, is there still no way to do badges for the millions?

    Have you been running the program correctly? I looked at your freeDC stats page and this is what your production looks like:

    (http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=user&proj=bwcg&name=701677)

    With a Q6600 and a 460, you should have no problem keeping up with the NEW requirements without having to run 24/7.

    Why not just "Crazy Cruncher" until we can all decide on something more awesome? At least gives the badges some uniformity between F@H and WCG till then

    WGC have been running in same way since I began, I didn't change anything. I just stopped running it for 2 or 3 weeks, to fold with cpu to get fah badge faster. Now I got fah badge then WCG is running again.

    What about: Crunch-oholic ?

    Keep letting it run so that your PPD average comes back up then your badge will reappear. You are a little short right now since you had a lot of 0 PPD days dragging your avg down.

    You should be able to get it within a little while...it shouldn't take long to get your average back up ;)

    14k is fine with me. That should be done with basically any setup. :toast:

    After considering it for a little longer 50kPPD/28days seems like a better compromise.

    I'll disagree with that. Some people here have great dedication towards crunching, yet they don't have the hardware to hit such PPD. Just don't think it's fair. Look at ION himself, he's just got some at work crunching, if not when his parents didn't let him crunch with the i7 it was real hard for him to get to that mark. I just don't think it's fair, that's all. I do appreciate the discussion and feedback though. :toast:

    I agree with CP about this. 50k/month I could conceivably do over the summer, but it would be a real challenge as I wouldn't have the i7. Many people, such as Rad_Ed until recently, simply couldn't make 50k a month, even though I would definitely classify Randal as a dedicated cruncher.

    I think that a small requirement is reasonable, but it shouldn't be any higher than what a modern dual core can do

    My average is about 20K-30K a month depending if both Rigs are up. And thats with the Q9450 running at a lesser load ( I've figured out my chip is kinda shwag, repasted it 3 times and core 1 is ALWAYS 5-6 degrees hottter). I conisder my self pretty dedicated for the funds I have and the fact I always run 24/7.:):)

    :wtf: better to who? Im sorry but the way i see it ppd is nothing but money in terms of hardware and power used, who is to say that a dude with a crappy athlon prebuilt running 24/7 is less dedicated then someone with 10 I7's running 24/7? would be like saying im less of a pc gamer cause i dont have 3 480's in sli :p

    ^^Exactly my point, I think 14k is perfectly fine as that is 500 PPD.

    I think you guys missed my point entirely. Im not trying to turn the badge into some elitist BS-fest. As someone who started on this team with a E2140 Prebuilt running 24/7, having higher requirements for the badge can drive someone to upgrade or otherwise contribute more to the team. I saved, waited for deals, and put in OT @ work to bankroll my systems. 50k a month is not impossible, even on low end hardware (who remembers POS's admirable mini farm :D?).

    Furthermore, I feel that the badge is not meant to be a 'thanks for participating' deal. W1z said it best:

    14k PPD is exactly that- too easy.

    50K a month is a bit much for some crunchers, although I'm not even sure how many points a month I pull right now.

    Well according to FreeDC your current 7day avg is about 1700ppd, which over a 28 day period would put you 2.5k shy of 50k/month.

    Why don't we do a poll? Can w1z add one to this thread? If so we'll vote and let the votes decide.
