Personally I think it is a great news that qualified admin(s) of a well-known boinc project express such an interest.

Hopefully a solution is found, I'm crying without my hours to stars !

Also let's not forget that WUProp is not only about stars, it's a wonderful technical database to have precious information on boinc ecosystem. And the fact that it gives stars encourages crunchers to attach their machines to boinc, and therefore feed the DB with up-to-date data all the time. It's a very clever positive feedback loop.


To be clear, we offered to help in any way possible. That includes taking over WUProp entirely, but also includes helping Sebastien with whatever he decides would be useful, collaborating with him and others, or anything else. We just want to help. What form that help takes is very flexible.

Sounds good so far. Everything's better than losing the best project ever in BOINC history... ;-)

Thanks for all you work.

Ouch! All good things come to an end eventually. Full kudo's to Sebas, he should receive a very special star. Let's hope that the community efforts (especially from the PrimeGrid team!) will keep Wuprop alive.
