EDIT:

Ok, a poll has now been added for the following names:

• Boinc Bash
• CRUNCHathon
• BOINCers gone Bonkers
• BONICAROO

Poll will end on Monday.


Well, we hope to get the thread up for a BOINC marathon shortly, and it'll be pretty similar to the Foldathons; 2 days where everyone goes all out to get as many points as possible. However, we don't wanna just copy the Foldathon and stick BOINC in front of it. That's not creative at all.

So, get your thinking caps on; we'd like to see some suggestions for the event. If all goes well, it'll be held every month, so this is a chance to have your title known to all OCN BOINCers.

We'll decide the winner this weekend, then post the thread soon after.


Oh, and please keep things civil. You see Mort over there in the shadows? *points*
He'll come after you with a hammer if you're not careful.

is this BOINC marathon just going to be for one project or will it be an open project marathon?

I was so going to nominate BOINCathon to be the name but I can see Mort bringing out that hammer.

Only 2 days?

BOINC Pentathlon:This means within 5 days the participants will need to crunch 5 different projects, where everyone goes all out to get as many points as possible.

Open Project.

And we probably will stick with BOINCathon if no other alternative comes up.

A 5-day Pentathlon could work... though 5 different projects? Isn't that what Project of the Month is for? This would be to get as many credits as possible overall...

I think OCN's average is 3-3.1mil a day? So for 5 days, we should be looking to get 16-17mil at least. If we focus on 5 different projects, is that doable?

While I do like the name BOINCathon, we have received a few PM's regarding the likelihood of it (the threads) getting trolled pretty bad.

What if we used a BOINC based term - like CRUNCHathon, or similar?

Personally I think the BOINC event should allow anyone to crunch on which ever project they wish. It is clear that some people like to crunch their own projects and we don't want to deter them. I'd be inclined to set the rules similar to the Foldathon where you crunch for 48 hours, no restrictions on clients (for folding) or projects (for BOINC). Though, let me/zodac know if you guys object - this is an event for you.

No.

I also thought of CRUNCHathon

or BOINC Speed Run

or BOINC Roastathon

or BOINC SpeedRoast

or BOINC E-Run

or BOINC Eathon

or BOINC Leetathon

or BOINC AOE

or BOINC EMO (Extreme Monthly Occupation)

or BOINC PeePeeDee X2 or X5

or simply BOINC marathon (if we only crunch with the same project)

or simply BOINC triathlon (if we crunch with multiple projects)

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

And I actually like the idea of crunching mad for 5 days, but aren't we all doing that already?
