And also : it does not seem to be linked to the computer/member who "found" the "result", correct ?

Like Primegrid is doing each time an interesting (and significant) result is found : it is a very big incentive for many crunchers to participate to projects (same as badges).

This is done not only in the Prime Grid, but also in the ODLK project.
For example, this is your solution (ID = 1959)

odlk3_28007_1569865707.342159, 1959
0 2 3 4 5 7 8 6 9 1
5 1 0 6 8 3 9 4 2 7
1 3 2 5 9 8 7 0 4 6
2 9 1 3 6 0 4 5 7 8
7 8 5 2 4 6 1 9 0 3
4 6 8 9 7 5 2 3 1 0
9 7 4 8 0 2 6 1 3 5
8 0 9 1 3 4 5 7 6 2
6 5 7 0 1 9 3 2 8 4
3 4 6 7 2 1 0 8 5 9

But this is not a meaningful solution.
You can see all your solutions in the ODLK project.
Also all other participants.

Thats good that you posted this question. I have every calculation result stored in database, with a link to boinc result, but I do not store extra userid. So while the boinc result metadata is in database, I can copy this information out. After the metadata is deleted to save space, it wouldn't be possible. Should the team and computer id be stored as well or is the user enough? Storing three values instead of one is annoying.

Can you post in Issues to track this feature request?

Sorry Jozef J. I had to hide your message, because it was quite hostile. But the key points are true.
"And also : it does not seem to be linked to the computer/member who "found" the "result", correct ?"

Because this is not PrimeGrid. This project is alpha stage (mainly for development and trying out new things). There are only two people running the show, that's me doing all the technical aspects and Natalia comming up with crazy experiments and talking into my work. Compare that to primegrid, they have few servers, donations, multiple people working on it with more time allocated (full time?) and many years of development to get where they are.

I have not seen the "hostile" post before it was moderated, but I was obviously *not* asking or requiring or claiming any kind of functionality, I was *only* suggesting something that *will* give your project further visibility and attract more cruncher.

You have to understand that most of the people participating to many boinc project only have a very vague idea of what's going on in the project, do not have the capacity (and education and training) to understand the theory behind, they just have a "general interest in helping science", and they just feel more comfortable when the project gives feedback = credits / badges / milestones (*) / publications.

If you like the idea and have time to implement it, one day, great.
If you don't, well, I'm just saying that you are reducing the attractive power of your project. But maybe this is just fine for you, if your project is too small and has to few resources (servers, workforce), it is understandable and it is OK :)

(*) this is my point here IF applicable to the project (I know that many projects just don't have "individual results" in front of any calculated WU) : "you / your machine have reached a result that can be seen on that page". This is very concrete and any standard cruncher will be happy to see that.

Bon courage with all you maths ;)

Jerome_C2005 suggested to show who discovered which symmetric prime tuple.
I think it's a good idea. I will move releated messages here.
(next time plz keep on topic and post issues/requests in new thread)

CAnd also : it does not seem to be linked to the computer/member who "found" the "result", correct ?

Like Primegrid is doing each time an interesting (and significant) result is found : it is a very big incentive for many crunchers to participate to projects (same as badges).

The authorship data is now tracked and the missing data has been copyied. In the future, cruncher name can be displayed along discovered prime tuples.

If anyone is interested in coding this ( php/mysql/html job ), I am open to. Even some small financial incentive is available.
