WCG will match other BOINC projects now by using the email address associated with an account as its login instead of the username. This is how all sites should work, IMO.

Hello all,
We're switching to email-based login in order to bring World Community Grid into closer alignment with the process used by other BOINC projects. (And for new volunteers, an email-based signup process cuts down on the number of fields required for initial registration.)
  • We plan to cut over to the new system on August 28, 2019.
  • Current volunteers will not need to take any action, but are encouraged to check that the email address associated with your account is up to date.
  • New volunteers after August 28 will not be required to create a username in order to sign up for World Community Grid, and send or receive work units. Usernames will be required in order to post in the forums, make their contribution statistics public, and create teams.
Please ask any questions in this thread, and check to see if your question has already been asked and answered before you post.

Thank you for your support,
ErikaT

Universe run times have increase 2-3x for the same credit. Expect production/RAC to plummet.

I see a lot of people whining about the drop in points. Universe gave out way too many points anyway.

This is now in place. Login now requires using the email vs username. Account creation still needs to be done at their website and cannot be done via BOINC mgr.

OpenZika is coming to an end at WCG.

Hello everyone,

We just published the most recent update from the OpenZika research team, which you can read here.

Right now, there is a pause in work units while our developers and the researchers build approximately 20,000 new batches. Once those are launched (in 1-2 weeks), they will be the final work units for the project.

We don't know how exactly how long it will take for volunteers to process these work units--our rough estimate is that the final work will be done in late September or early October.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this project! The Zika virus may not be front-page news anymore in much of the world, but it's still a threat. Your support has been very important.

Caiti

Tomáš Brada Experimental Grid now has badges. The project gives pretty low credit. It took 50k hours for me to get to 1mil credit and 3/4 of that was on Zen CPUs.
https://boinc.tbrada.eu/forum_thread.php?id=3045#3574

Lv. 8) Over 6204 credits.
Lv. 9) 37224
Lv.10) 197600
Lv.11) 785997
Lv.12) 2629687
Lv.13) 6873318
Lv.15) 16350666
Lv.17) 84584914

It looks like credit has been upped by 30% but it's probably still below credit new.

PrimeGrid is proud to announce that we have a new sub-project, the Fermat Divisor search.

This is a variant of our other PPS (Proth Prime Search) sub-projects and is specially designed to have a better chance of finding a Fermat Divisor.

Unlike most of our other sub-projects, this one will not run forever. It has a limited number of candidates to check, and once they're gone, the project is over. My best guess is that this project will last about three months.

It uses the same badge and stats as the other PPS sub-projects, so there's no new badge. But this is probably the best chance of discovering a Fermat divisor and earning that rare badge.

For more information and discussion, read this forum thread or join our Discord server.

I started running this after seeing your message. Looks like the project changed names overnight. I assume WUProp will combine the stats at some point.

I saw the WUProp message about the name change. I grabbed some more tasks in case it doesn't combine.

Edit: The project was renamed at WUProp and hours combined.
