    now that the folding guys have their users badges, i assume you want some too.

    which criteria? where to get stats?

    500k and must be active to get any badge then badges at 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 25, 50 million ?

    Might want to consider setting the minimum lower so that we don't discourage newcomers and those with less powerful systems.

    Thanks w1z!! There are a couple of different ways to do points with WCG. However, it does seem that we talk 'Free-DC" stats more than anything else. I'm thinking if we use Free DC, I'd say 100K is fair. If we use the point system through WCG (free DC x7) then I'd say 500K is fair. Here's a link to both team pages:

    Is this for BOINC points or WCG points? I have almost 800k WCG points, but only like 115 BOINC points, so if it was 500k BOINC points it would take me about 6 months to get a badge, and I know that there are a lot of people with less generation capability than me. But 500K WCG sounds perfectly reasonable. I get my WCG stats from BOINCStats, but another option is Free-DC

    How about 75k? I've been running WCG for a while and I only have a Kuma and Sempron 3000+ at it so it's slow going.

    I know what you mean, I'm having the same problem trying to get 100k in F@H on the Geforce 9300 :eek:

    Ill put it in your name for a few days if u want. 75k doesn't seem like enough, 100k is just a nice well rounded number.

    I agree with this, but the only thing is, that members who are no longer active will still show in the stats and if they are above the 100K/500K mark they will still have their badges.


    Also any idea's on what the badge will look like? I suppose a simple, easy fix would be to replace the 'multi-coloured bubble thingy' logo from the folding badge with the 'inter-weavy lines thingy' logo from WCG.

    What about a minimum of 100k/500k, and then at least 250 (BOINC) a day to maintain the badge?

    I think we should use the same settings as the folders. 100K, must be active in last 7 days, keeps it simple.

    Works good now. Looks good as well.

    For those of us that qualify or will qualify for both projects, does it display two badges, 1 for each team? Or does it simply pick the one you choose it to display?

    Kind of odd how the WCG badge has a TPU logo and the F@H doesn't. :confused:

    That's a 'Staff Badge' if you mouse over it. Perhaps the staff are getting badges too? Or perhaps a prior system was in place for badges.
    FordGT90Concept says thanks.
