    Why did you just grant everybody 255 credits?
    What is this good for?

      For once I agree with you Saenger!! I also agree with your comment on the other thread about a project being dead if it\'s admins don\'t use the forums to keep their volunteers informed. There seem to be a lot of pissed-off people crunching this project, which is why I\'ve never touched it ( apart from having an account as team founder ) and they really think that people will accept a 255 cred. sweetener?

        Was it everybody or just those that lost work last year?

        I got the 255 credits which I assumed was for the 5-day work unit that I completed but was discarded. I\'d have expected either around 1000 or nothing.

        Currently 5 days into another WU and I\'ve got a feeling that one is going to be discarded too. I hope I\'m wrong.

        Al.

          Hilarious. If everyone got 255 credits, no one wins or loses, so what\'s the complaint for?

          How\'d I find out about this? Looking at BOINCStats, I wondered why Sztaki was the 2nd highest credit awarder to me in this past week. I haven\'t run it in quite some time. I posted about it on my team forum. A team-mate referred me to this thread.
