    When you switch teams using the same name/account, don't all your points go with you? So, if you crunch on the tpu team for a week and then move back to xs, the points don't stay with tpu.

    I think if you want the points to stay on tpu you need to make a new account. Am I wrong about this?

    I know there is no problem going back and forth, I just think your points are only temporary with whatever team you are on. The points are tied to the account/name, not the team.

    I'm not able to do distributed computing at the moment but I'm kinda happy XS was down, this is a neat forum. I'll be visiting regularly from now on.

    I already visited the page this morning, now says I last visited today. :ohwell:

    I am curious to see how old it is though...

    The points stay on your account.Any points you accrue stay in your name.Teams are awarded the points you accrue during your stay there.

    Say I have one hundred points total.
    95=XS
    3=TPU
    2=EasyNews
    Those teams keep the points,but your total under your name = 100
    123bob, 4x4n and SparkyJJO say thanks.

    Ok, cool. That's what I was wondering. I'll switch over for a while right now. :up:

    EDIT: Done!

    OH-oh, this would seem to imply that the backup is pretty old....MM will have some work to do to add users? I hope it's temporary and that Charles can rescue a more recent backup.



    +1 for Rammie. I also verified this when I switched. It says on the WCG page that the points I accrue for TPU's team will stay with TPU when I go back to XS. Your individual total points will not be affected. This is also the only way I can see to do this without detaching, blowing out active WUs, and having to start over on another account.

    What we will do is skew TPU's Free-DC page for a bit since when you move over, you move all your individual points over too....

    Regards,
    Bob

    Please, don't bait him, don't even reply to him even if he makes comments on your mother.
    We're guests here and like guests in someones home your on your best behavior.
    Let the mods deal with anything he has to say and if there's an ignore list here put him on it.
