1) Message boards : Number crunching : What is this "inactive for 30 days or more" icon? (Message 2390)
Posted 27 Sep 2014 by Profile rebel9
Well, this seems to have stimulated some discussion, which is healthy. :-)

Thank you for the change. I prefer the coloured text but I must admit to still not seeing the need for this at all. All inactive apps will naturally gravitate towards the bottom of the list over time, anyway. I'd still like to be able to disable it but I can write a Greasemonkey script or something to do that if I need to.

Also, let's get the language correct if we have to stare at it all the time:

"The italicized red text denotes applications which have been inactive for 30 days or more."

I appreciate that English probably isn't your first language, just trying to improve things for everybody. :-)
May I also suggest that this only needs to be in one place, above or below the table, not in every header.

Thanks again.

Please explain. I don't need or want this. It mars the display, is ugly and not even correctly vertically aligned. And what does it even mean?? Is it the project itself which has been inactive or is it that my client hasn't crunched for that project for 30 days? Now we will have to put up with these things appearing on all projects as they fade away. I don't need an icon to know the status of the projects I crunch.

At the very least please make this configurable by sticking something under "WUProp@Home preferences" to allow us to choose whether we see them. It's a bad idea to foist changes like this on users who are already comfortable with a UI. Much better to give them the choice.

This possibly belongs here:
4) Message boards : Number crunching : Convector 52BarV3 (Message 2118)
Posted 25 Mar 2014 by Profile rebel9
Any idea why the new Convector 52BarV3 app. appears to be being listed as 52BarV2? I am running V3 exclusively for Convector but it's my 52BarV2 total that's increasing. I know there were problems with some internal factors identifying this app. but they appear to have been corrected and it reports correctly in my clients.

There is also a discussion already under the news forum that has covered most of this. However, it is easily overlooked due to the title and how the discussion progressed.

Thank you both. That's pretty bad, actually. I can't think of another case that hasn't respected earlier work. I presume that's because you don't have records or something, but not good after all that work. :-(

If you do then it should just be a matter of running a script over the data.

Maybe you could consider a stand-alone "past credit" award or something?

OK, I'm a badge whore, I admit it. I just discovered the new badges and came here to check what I qualified for, but found nothing. I've been running wuprop on numerous computers solidly for almost 3 years, night and day, since shortly after it opened, I believe. My "reported data" shows this:

Asteroids@home Period Search Application 2,932.42
FreeHAL@home FreeHAL 2012 app 1,019.00
World Community Grid Help Conquer Cancer 359.20
PrimeGrid PPS (Sieve) 219.57
Moo! Wrapper Client 198.33
NumberFields@home Get Decic Fields 150.67
SETI@home SETI@home Enhanced 84.22
Einstein@Home Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) 80.37
Collatz Conjecture collatz 66.20
yoyo@home Cruncher ogr 22.55
Collatz Conjecture mini_collatz 7.95
NumberFields@home Get Decics with Bounded Discriminant 7.40

which, to me, seems patently wrong. I've been running a range of apps in that time, including all primegrid projects, all WCG projects, enigma and a number of others. The most obvious error being that I only started running asteroids within the lsat few weeks, again chasing badges, but that's shown as the highest credit item! I only started NumberFields within the last few days. So those figures don't add up at face value.

Maybe I'm assuming something incorrectly. Is there a time frame here or should I be credited for all work I've done? I'm definitely assuming the latter

Could we have a detailed explanation of how stats are calculated and applied, and how the badge system works, please, so we can all understand exactly what's required?

Many thanks.
