Would be cool also to have a requirement to have donated a prize already
Oh, I like that! Give back to the people who have given the most to this team thumb.gif

I really like the proposed changes. I also agree that the 5 previous events for BGB23 was justified, but feel it may be a bit much for every event. Personally, I think even having participated in at least 1 BGB in the past 3 would be sufficient for prizes valued at $100+

That gives people a bit of a choice, but also promotes sticking with the team.

Having at least 1 BGB for the $100 prize sounds like a great idea, what do the rest of you think about that? Should we also had an overall credit minimum to that too?

An alternative, would be ditch the BGB participation, and just do say 1M points over the past 2-3 months. Pretty easy to achieve, even with CPU only tasks. That forces team participation.

As for the more expensive prize to 1 previous BGB, It's not that I don't like, but it kinda takes the whole "seniority" feel from some of us who have been around for more than 5 BGB's, at least that's how I'd feel. We haven't really had any prizes worth over 50 bucks since BGB23 I thought... they seem like a rare occasion thing anyways, but heck I don't really care anyway XDDD

Take this all with a grain of salt haha. It's just my experience. Raising the requirements is definitely not a bad idea. Either way, I plan on donating at least one thing to each coming BGB so we can at least have some prizes because there were a few that were like "crunch for fun without incentive to obliterate" haha.

But I say this again, take all this with a grain of salt. I really have no problem with any possible changes, I'm just venting I guess haha. If we had like a poll or something before each BGB for popular low cost items that people might wanna win as prizes, I wouldn't mind going out to get at least one.

i agree, we need to raise the level of at least the top 2 tiers to include so many bgbs, like you have to have been in at least 5 bgbs total as well as have been in last 3 bgbs.

So you would exclude "ME" for being on the road...

See if I ever donate an SSD or something again!

Sheesh!!!

I like credit requirements for large prizes, I also like consecutive participation requirements for large prizes too.

Only problem is that credit, even on my older machine, can vary up to 10 times as much for the same amount of electricity put in depending on which project you run. This is more of a general gripe with the BOINC platform as I feel some projects can and do increase the credit per watt they give just to get more participation. It just gets more out of hand too, for the project that started BOINC to give roughly 1/10th credit per watt that distrgen does needs a solution. Even considering this I think 125k over a BGB is an acceptable requirement.

I would like to say I am in your target demographic, as I first encountered the OCN team right before BGB 23, saw the sweet card as a top prize, then used this to push myself and my hardware to move to this team and stay active. I have passed 5 consecutive BGB's and have 25+ mill credit. You want people to join and stay, I think these requirements have done just that in my case.
