Hello Searcher, for the signature it depends on what website you are using to generate it ?

For example on SSB I have it :



But maybe some other do not implement it ?

But if you don't see it in you profile page here on TBEG then Tomas must look into it.

And a very happy new year to you all ! Lots of WUs !!

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 ;)

Can any non-mathematician read this "result" page ?? :)

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).
