Tomas, I do not see my post as "threatening" and it was not intended that way. It is your project and you may run it anyway you wish and I have no problem with that. You are free to chose the credit level you award to your volunteers. But the fact is that I am a volunteer and I have the option to run whatever projects I like or prefer. That is a fact and not a threat.

This is a hobby for me and I have personal goals. I do not intend to make a lifetime commitment to this project, or any other, to get to a 5, 10, or 25 million credit milestone.

And, I do agree that there are projects that give far more credits than they should. Last week I was running a CPU project for a upcoming team challenge. I was making 8M credits/day. Here I make 170k/day so I think there is a place in between those 2 levels that would be a good compromise for both projects.

If you want to attract volunteers that will run you science for extended periods then I suggest you raise the credit level. That is a personal opinion of course. That also goes to ODLK and ODLK1 as well. ;)

we can increase the multiplier. But please note, it was established according to Berkeley guidelines.


I believe this project is the lowest paying of any BOINC project. ODLK and ODLK1 pay very poorly in comparison to other projects but they pay far better than this project.

Once I reach my personal credit goal I will never again run this project. The only reward we volunteers get are the credits/badges awarded by the projects. The credits cost the project nothing.

This is my personal opinion and others may feel differently. However, I'm the one who controls which projects I support. BTW, I also don't support ODLK or Latin Squares for the same reason.

Credit Screw is a random credit generator.
