Eye on the Prize. - Page 5

post #41 of 57
Another idea for the pile. For each of the BGB events, make it mandatory that the participants do one of the "project of the month" projects. This does two things: one it helps with the PotM, obviously, and two it evens the playing field a bit since you can't just pick the thing that gives you the highest points.

It also allows for points competition since most of the PotM's I've seen (in my short time doing this) are CPU projects. So this month, we could have made everyone do Rosetta and the GPU project of your choice. Kind of win/win.

I like the idea of making running a PotM project mandatory (for winning a prize however). What do the rest of you BOINCers think about this?

Sounds good to me. I have already won the prize I wanted from my 2nd or 3rd FaT, an overclocked account. Anything else would just be even cooler, but thats not why I participate.

I am going to run the projects I want, whether they are high points or not. I just set it to run what ever I feel like at the moment.

Now, FINALLY, I read something that makes SOME sense.

Yes, whomever runs these contests needs to accomplish 2 things... one is even the playing field for higher participation (Ci rules and such in autoracing) and 2 has to pick tasks that anyone can run... so Nvidia only GPU tasks can't be used etc. Everyone doing the same thing and one optional thing is fine, provided the one optional thing is picked from an approved list... otherwise everyone (for instance) picks PrimeGrid automatically for GPU tasks.

Leveling the playing field is problematic because it's simply CPU based
for the most part, but some folks have many systems/CPUs that can compete well against singles...

This kind of thinking is productive and beneficial to all concerned and promotes a long and healthy atmosphere of cooperation and pure fun. (NASCAR, INDY, etc).

I am 100% for assigned predetermined tasks so long as they are available for everybody to run (like on my old 1.6ghz laptop with no GPU). Even then, this being OCN, I would expect the majority have at least one system with a usable GPU in it... but that's a pure guess.

I don't like the idea of running a specified project on my CPU in order to be part of BGB. I will continue to run WCG, for personal reasons. On the other hand I dont care what project is run on my GPU as there are no humanitarian GPU projects as of now.

Here's an idea, try posting something without being a total douche. Nothing you suggest or say creates an atmosphere of fun or cooperation because your tone is caustic and you can't even agree without being an ass.

are we working in any way to integrate some of the ideas within this post into one of the future BGB events ?
