What about the project GoofyxGrid@Home CPU?

It may be better to wait until the full launch of the new server

The CPU WUs will have a different name, I don't see the problem. Why wait?

Why not leave it and get 4 more apps towards another star.

From what I can see they have different names so you can't just merge them.
They were possibly re-written during the downtime and may no longer do exactly the same work, hence the different naming scheme.

It's an NCI app where you can run hundreds of clients to get more hours if you want. I'm nowhere close to 100k hours with Goofy and I'm not complaining.

GoofyxGrid@Home Monkeys v1 - Random generator A
GoofyxGrid@Home Monkeys v2 - Word seeker A
GoofyxGrid@Home Monkeys v3 - Generator/Word seed
GoofyxGrid@Home Monkeys v4 - Seeker/Word seed

vs

Grid computing center Monkeys v1 - Generator/1 seed
Grid computing center Monkeys v2 (NCI) - Seeker/1 seed
Grid computing center Monkeys v3 (NCI) - Generator/Word seed
Grid computing center Monkeys v4 (NCI) - Seeker/Word seed

From what I see, you can merge them. But I see lots of CERN applications that need to be merged too...

No answer from the project for more than a month? :-(

That's not unusual. If there's a response it's usually unannounced and things just happen. In this case I think it's safe to conclude that these projects aren't going to be merged else it would have already happened.

More like the project was copied from one site to the other. Old posts are there from long before GCC was a thing. Free-DC replaced Goofy with GCC, thats probably as much 'merging' as will happen.

You now have your wish, and have lost 4 application stars in the process. I also lost my 15th star but I will get it back in a few more months.

OTOH I now have a much quicker path to a Lime star. Swings and roundabouts I guess.

It is nice to be able to upgrade existing stars, especially stars with lots of hours. Requires the rarity of project continuity. These changes moved me 1app closer to a Lime:
... Grid computing center Monkeys v2 (NCI) - Seeker/1 seed 28,502.58 118.75

However, it came at the expense of 3 lesser star upgrades - but that's the cost; it's harder to upgrade a high star than several smaller stars.

On the bright side I'll have the fun of getting the 3 lost upgrades back & it won't take too long...
