There are 5 projects that need to be run. Each project runs for 5 days. Each team is ranked on how many credits they are. Points are assigned for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. (first gets more than second, second gets more than third...) per project. At the end of the Pentathlon, the team with the most points wins!
Think of this as the Olympics (Countries will be teams and events will be projects in my example for simplicity sake). Each team participates in projects. Since there are many projects and such a short time, the projects will overlap with each other. Whoever wins the most wins the entire thing

Projects will be overlapping each other.

Everyone can join.

Not so strategic placement, I'll be folding for CC.
If I was in charge of making the time for this cross-team event, I would have put in June. having Chimp Challenge and this in the same timeframe, let alone same month is not great.

That seems like a sticky situation for you. I don't want to tell you which one to run. Flip a coin maybe?

I've noticed that our daily stats has suffered a major blow recently with the lack of power. Well, it is our first BOINC Pentathlon, so I'm not too fussy on not winning this one. Getting the OCN name out there will be the main thing for this one.

I believe SETI.Germany scheduled this

I think it is a bit too late for that since the date is already set and disciplines have been voted on already.
ps. Post 2,400 for me
