Eye on the Prize. - Page 2

post #11 of 57
These are good ideas so far. I agree with all of them. We need to look at past BGB results and come up with a tier system that works best, and represents a similar number of users in each tier. We can't make a extremely high tier that makes it impossible for everyone but those with high end multi gpu setups to meet. And we can't make a low tier that is way too easy to meet.

[QUOTE=gamer11200;12859981]Okay, so I'm commenting on the posts as I go through them, I do not mean to be ignoring your posts if you replied to something mentioned before your post was entered.



Actually no...it was the collective effort of many members that persuaded OCN management to allow a BOINC team named after the forum.


i meant i joined the team. i edited it.

While it is possible and would be a great thing to do, unfortunately the time and effort needed to actually go about and do the work needed to compile those numbers are absurd.



If you do set your account settings to allow public viewing of the computers you use to crunch (show your computer information: CPU, GPU, Ram, etc), anyone that goes onto the projects' site and searches for you can see all the tasks.

Also following up on this time issue, some projects delete the log of the completed work unit very quickly and thus this will also be a limiting factor in the time vs. credit talk.



I do exercise the tiered prizes option when necessary. BGB4, where we had $100, $50 and $25 required different amounts of credit to be eligible for was an example of that.



I support this idea of voting on a tiered systems' requirement



Could also discourage some users of even trying out BOINC to begin with if they are set too high



Maybe cards that some would call "real graphics cards" would be able to do that but when you look at stuff like a Geforce 210 or something alone that performance line, I could imagine that a card like that would struggle to even break a 5 digit credit score in a 48 hour period.


Overall, it seems that there is some great brainstorming going on over how to tier prizes. I believe that the tiered system works best because (not implying that anyone does this) having someone jump on to crunch just 1,000 credit (the current min to be eligible) to win Thermal Paste or Modern Warfare 2 on Steam (the two prizes of BGB5) is a bit unfair since thermal paste is valued around $5 and Modern Warfare was worth much more than that. We can continue to discuss on this matter of the tiers and what credit would be deemed acceptable for the tiers. I see that we have "A" "B" "C" "D" levels. Let's start by putting dollar figures on these. Example: A is stuff over $100. Let's just start with that and then after we have decided on a proper tier system, we can begin working on what credit is needed. I don't want this to be a quickly made thing, so with the BGB6 coming up next month, it will still operate under the old rule (1,000 credit crunched for team OCN AND didn't win a prize in a previous BGB unless there is high value prize in which i will determine a number that i seem fit). I will set a goal for this tier system to be implemented for BGB7 but this could be changed depending on how our discussion progresses
i have a 8600gts that gets 30k per day on primegrid

You might want to verify that...for what I know, 8800GT is much faster than a 220.

what is the prize ? top ten ?

The occasional BGB event once a month ? is that what prize we are leaning towards ? then everyone turns their computers off when the event is over ? look at the 19th the first full 24hours period after BGB5 OCN put up a whopping 5 million points.

looks like OCN put up 10,437,602 today nice to see that some people ran there machines today

our cause has to be 24/7

I am not sure bgb is furthering our cause if we all shut down the next couple days after an event

Personally, I cannot afford my electric bill. It was $113 last month(although a lot of that was gas from the heater). I can't imagine what it would be if I was folding 24/7

I've been unemployed for two months, So that makes it really hard.

However, I did like participating in the last BGB, So I will continue to participate in future events. It's a little bit of fun competition. Honestly I could care less about the prizes, I already have enough computer stuff laying around my living room. It would be nice to see our BOINC community grow larger than it is so I plan on trying to make a prize donation for the next BGB. The Idea with BGB is that it help raise awareness and that we might gain a few 24/7 users. I wish I could run my rig 24/7 but I really can't. I do start up BOINC and run it for a few hours a day sometimes if I'm just surfing the web, but otherwise to much $$.

Maybe change the prizes such that:

Lets say hypothetically you have three prizes. Select three people at random who have more than xxx BGB points (maybe 10,000?). Look at their monthly or maybe yearly contribution to team, rank them in that order, and let them choose prises in that order? Just a thought.

I run for several hours per day, but my agreement with my significant other is that I can run boinc but I have to let my computer idle to sleep after an hour. During BGB I ran it 24/7.

I know I'm somewhat new to the forum and I hope my suggestion above is not rude. BGB is one of the primary reasons I joined. Not because of prizes, but because I wanted a team that had some activity and events.

Look at is as people powering ON their rigs FOR BGB, vs off when no BGB. Personally, I run my work BOINC computers 24/7, but my personal GPU at home would give my parents an aneurism when they looked at the power bill if I ran it 24/7. BGB is a great way for me to go "full throttle" during certain times and have some fun while doing it (prizes are just icing on the cake).
