I quote MarkS, admin on the project superlinkattechnion

Friends,

SUPERLINK@TECHNION server crash

To all those who is wondering what's going on with SUPERLINK@TECHNION project: our server's HDD crashed completely, and it will take us about one week to recover, hopefully less than that.
We do have backups, so user information is likely to be preserved.

Is anyone else having problems posting to the boards at E@H? If I try to reply to a post I'm confronted with the message: "Unable to handle request. In order to reply to a post in you must have a certain amount of credit. This is to prevent and protect against abuse of the system."
I'm guessing this is to stop spammers signing up and posting without ever properly participating in the project, but I've got 8301.51 credit at E@H, how much do I need? (And where is that shown on their website?)
I have got a very low RAC at E@H because I haven't returned a WU recently (they have been having issues with the app running slowly on AMD hosts), but the message just mentions "credit" not RAC.
(I can't ask about this at E@H because if I try to start a new thread there to ask about this, I get the same message!)

I think that the key is the Rac (> 0 ?) and not the credit.
Even if your Rac = 0, usually you can post in the Help Desk forum.

Also please note, and this is to everyone, if I see another thread on this topic I will delete it, can you not read the sticky at the top of the forum?

Why do you want to delete the post ? Obviously, people don't see or/and read posts.
That's pretty usual.
Move it to the sticky thread and send an email "Reason : ..... It will be mailed if nonempty"

Ratings don't work, and the red-x appears to work but crashes on submission.

Unable to handle request LHC@home  
User with id FORUM_MODERATION_EMAIL_USER_ID created but nothing returned from DB layer

Ok, same here.
This problem is not new (before the migration) but i don't know exactly since when rating and red-x don't work.

I found a simple solution is to create a team called "banned for life" again. guaranteed any accounts inside the team will be banned in under 24hrs. I didn't need to say anything it was promptly deleted about an hour after i created it. i was glad to be rid of my account.

Are you banned ?

Hello...

The transition is progressing. Hope to have some more concrete information on the front page soon.

The project has been through a number of admin's hands and so information has been spread thinly. Thinks have taken time as I have had to scrape the information together and when I find something out it solves 1 problem but reveals 2 more...

I know a number of you are feeling frustrated about this... if it is any comfort so am I!!!

Bye for now

Alex Owen

LHC@Home Server Admin

Thanks Alex for the update But is LHC an one-man-show ?

As much as I would love to participate in the project, I want to know that my participation in said project is appreciated.

The only form of appreciation I need is just to have my stats exported.

If you can't do that, you don't appreciate my participation, and I no longer have a desire to participate in the project.
Gee..... can I please have some cheese with that whine....? :D LOL

Dontcha think that they ppl working behind the scenes to get "LHC 2.0" up and running have far more important things to and worry about then to make sure a bunch of stat junkies get their fix....

Why not invest some time in learning how to use the WAP stats feed to parse current stats in almost real time which ARE working and ARE NOT affected currently by LHC's slow rebuild process?

See my sig below for an example.

Problem solved.

I have the feeling that nobody "is working behind the scenes to get "LHC 2.0" up and runing"...

It started really nice and hopeful with the new admins and the new server.
But now... It looks like all is the same as it was last year...

I wonder WHY it's so difficult for an admin. to come here, in this forum, 5 minutes/day.
Probably, we are a lost world or forgotten ...

If you read the final message in the thread linked to, you will find that the Admins there banned 2 people for posting false accusations. They also state that where there is no evidence they cannot assume a breaking of the rules. That seems to be fair enough.

I haven't looked at their message board rules, but if there is mention of posting false or unsupported info that harms, or is intended to harm. another user, that would justify the 2 banishments mentioned.

If Admins there declared the matter closed and asked that new threads beating this dead horse not be created, then it would be well within their rights to delete threads as they appear, again haven't looked for this, but they have stated that they are dealing with the person who has been proven to have violated their rules and from the Admin's comments & Pscheofer's complaint they are containing the issue in a manner they deem best.

Sure they try to contain complaints...banning people until 2038 or blocking whole IP ranges...

Now - this is silly. The issue was discovered and handled over a month ago. The actions have been repeatedly discussed -- in my mind, there's no further action required.

By the way, if you feel that Predictor@home is doing something wrong - shouldn't you post your concerns on the Predictor boards rather than here ???

They're deleting messages and banning peoples for that.
