@BinaryMage: Actually a monthly newsletter is a very cool idea, however very time consuming to be honest. I guess what I am saying is: "Been there, done that." It takes time to; first lay out the format, then add content, then add last minute content, then proof read the news letter, the send it. That can be a very time consuming thing to do.

Don't get me wrong man, team news letters are very, very cool for the people involved in what ever the content is about. I would be very excited to read our own WCG community news letter every month!!!

Well, I'd be willing to manage it, if people think it would be cool to have a newsletter. I'd submit it to CP for final approval, of course. Once a month shouldn't be too much work, and I think it would help us keep people interested.

Wow, that's cool. Question, would I be eligible? I am above rank 75 on the team based on BOINC points (from other projects I previously participated in), but lower than 75 on WCG points...



Yeah, I agree. Hmm... is there any way we could send a mass email? -IDEA- Hey, maybe we could start a monthly newsletter. Tell people about upcoming contests, how our stats are doing, crunching tips, things WCG has accomplished, etc. That would be a great way to keep people involved without targeting, and also a lot of fun. I'd love to help with that. Thoughts?

I don't have any experience doing newsletters, so I can't offer an opinion. I would say pm CP and see what he says. If it's a go, start a thread to solicit ideas and volunteers. That's how I would go about it anyway. Just my opinion though.

The thing with emailing members is that we either have to get that info from members directly or we have to rely on Wiz to send them out. I don't think he is going to give us people's emails even if we are an official TPU team. I don't think he should anyway, but that's up to Wiz.

Until you can figure out how we're going to actually get in touch with people, discussing anything that depends on direct contact is pretty much moot.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but it seems to me that this is the first thing that needs to be resolved. :)

Yeah, that makes sense. I was sort of thinking that it would be a subscription-based thing, where we would have a link on the forums that people could sign up at. I only want to do it if everyone thinks it's a good idea, though. I don't have any newsletter experience whatsoever...

I see what you're saying, and for active members who don't come to the forum very often, it's a great idea. We could mention news tidbits like the upcoming Jeopardy matches with IBM's Watson or upcoming challenges.

But I think we started talking about such things as a way to reach out to inactive members. If they're inactive though, what are the odds that having a subscription link here on the forum will be effective in reaching those people? I don't know. Maybe a lot of them are still active on TPU and just not interested in BOINC or WCG. I can see how that would be possible but I just don't know if that's a realistic expectation. There probably isn't any harm in giving it a shot, but like I said, that's really CP's call as team captain. :)

True, I don't think that many would mind if there were spelling or grammar mistakes in a news letter.

The daily stats are WCG numbers. All other stats are BOINC.

1 boinc point = 7 WCG points.

The historical reason for it is that WCG used to run other software (United Devices) that did pts calculations differently. This was maybe 4 or 5 years ago. For a while, they ran both the United Devices client and BOINC but eventually switched to BOINC only. At that point they had to reconcile the 2 systems and this conversion factor is what they came up with.

Alright. I had sort of assumed they were BOINC, but then realized 2 million seemed ridiculously high for BOINC. Thanks for clarifying! :)

This question comes up all of the time. I've been trying to compile a list of FAQ's so I can just cut, paste and maybe modify the response. I think it's important to answer people's questions rather than tell them to RTFM or whatever.

A FAQ thread would definitely be a good idea. If I can help at all, tell me. :)

I only have a handful right now. But I'll probably steal from the tips you include in the newsletter. ;)
Then you make a thread and we sticky it. :D
