Once more thank you very much Igor for your commitment!

Regarding your question two posts ago - team total points at a point in time are not a sum of points of their current members. The reason is that teams gain points only generated while a person is in the team. If someone has 100k on account and joins a team at this moment a team gains nothing. Once he crunches +1, team gains +1.

Just looking at the stats and knowing that part of gain from 07.01.12 was honest, taking Seti.USA and CNT 6M will make things more or less back to reality.

Igor thank you very much for this action!

However, I would like to kindly ask you also to adjust affected team points, as they are ridiculous.

Here they go:

January's gainers:








November's gainers:








Just look at their "top 5 days" if any doubts...

I am his wingman and I was very surprised with that WU and I don't know, why we were not granted an average - what I know is that I did not anyhow manipulate anything.

I would not call him a cheater so fast - see his other tasks - no other issues, but this one.

Maybe someone from the project should look closer into it, because there maybe a strange bug, which spoils the whole LHC's credit system at the moment.

And what with this WU on this computer of this this owner.

Run time 4.19 s, cpu time 76,004.08 s

Either there are more cheaters, or we have a bug.

This is a bit of an anachronism, but in terms of "fairer distribution of work", one should seriously consider participating in a BOINC project called XtremLab.

It actually studies WU allotment and overall grid efficiency. It has the potential to fix a LOT of the work distribution problems in most, if not all, BOINC-based projects.

Check out this link for more info. Account Creation is not as straight-forward as with other projects, but it's not difficult to get started. I truly believe this is a valuable project for the future of Distributed Computing.



And one should think twice before crunching for XtremLab, as admins there have not given a word about their work since months. We (participants) have no idea about project state, results...complete silence :(
