  1. So what is happening with Gridcoin Finance? I looked at the website and no info there, and nothing here for a month. I have work that comes down, gets boinced, then gets stuck uploading. Website server says the upload server is not working. Anyone?
  2. Ok just sent you enough starter coins that you can send your beacon, welcome!! Remember to pay it forward later when you see someone else new here!! Cheers, Brew
  3. Ok, this is the second try at this post, I screwed up and lost the first somehow. My opinion is, Gridcoin does not need to alter the team requirement, or remove it. Gridcoin needs instead to create a new Boinc Project ( Gridcoin@home ) as a next generation move to improve Gridcoins position within the community, to encourage new participation of new people not already boincing, and to increase participation of experienced boincers who are already in other teams but want a part of it. We could use a standard software boinc package for the website, where someone can come and sign up, and add the project to the list of other Boinc projects they run. Accounting in the backend can incorporate a similar manager as is now running on Katiee's pool, where the new user could select individual projects that would run under the Gridcoin project face. The new user could then select what to do with the Gridcoin produced with their boincing - Here is where it gets interesting - The new user can select various options within the project pages that would allow them to donate Gridcoins created by their boincing ( the same as joining the pool now.. ) and could also select if they want to donate their gridcoins to a particular real work organization or school for them to use for science or health related supplies!! This would mean that the user would not be required to have or use a wallet at all, they would be using the "gridcoin@home" wallet for donations. (no wallet setup or use issues) This would also put out in front, a goal for creating gridcoins - help support your school, your clinic in your area, your church even. This creates a market for gridcoin - We could incorporate a donor recipient portion to the site where school, or health, or science groups could go to request to be put on the donor list. They could also list companies that they deal with who they buy supplies from ( office supplies, church supplies, science lab supplies) and Gridcoin@home could then contact these suppliers and present a package where they could accept gridcoins for supplies . .. This creates a marketplace!! The new user's stats in various projects run through 'gridcoin@home' would be collected per user, and pushed ahead to the original project that they ran for gridcoin ( so atlas@home, or pogs, or whatever) . . . and therefore they would continue collecting RAC towards those projects ( which is a major complaint from people not wanting to join the pool or switch teams) They could also have the option of collecting part or all of the gridcoins which using the project would generate (this would require a personal wallet setup). Gridcoin@home would not issue RAC directly, we would only account for it, pass it to the original projects, we would however be able to issue GRC to any user signing up!! ok That is all, now back to work!!
  4. Fixed. Our account got deleted over there because it was inactive with no RAC for awhile, since no one was using it, I had to recreate it and just forgot to join the team.. sorry. Everything should be fine now. Everything is fine now, WUs researching away for the pool!! Thank you again for the rapid response. Cheers Brew

Everything should be fine now. Very cool and thank you for the rapid response! I switched over to solo with it while it was not working in the pool, but as soon as the solo WUs run out, I will switch it back to the pool!! Thanks again Katiee, keep up the great work! Brew
  6. Hey Katiee - I just reinstalled my boinc again (again. . . and again. . . ) and everything is doing ok. Connected to the pool, synced ok, got projects running. Citizen Science Grid is displaying no Team ( as in Gridcoin ) when it attaches to my boinc. I tried to detach in the manager, sync in boinc, attach in the manager, sync in boinc, but the same condition continues. We do not get credit if it is not attached to the gridcoin team, I don't think. .. . so could you look at that soon, as they just did get WUs, which is kind of rare!! Cheers Brew
  7. Hi lefaibl3 I have sent you 2 GRC (gridcoin). It may not seem like much but it is enough to get your wallet to work. Let me refer you to a blog with information on getting more GRC - Gridcoin Adventure . In addition you might find it a good idea to join the New Gridcoin Pool - by Katiee. For a faucet (referral link) - Hourly ( Hourly Faucet ) and Daily ( Daily Faucet ) Please follow this forum, and in the future when others ask for starter coins, please pass on the GRC I have sent to you!! Cheers!!
  8. Excellent update, thank you Katiee !! Great view of the pool stats, I am hoping to be able to start consistently contributing today - still fighting my boinc to see my gpus. . . I am looking forward to the new manager! As always, keep up the great works Katiee, you are doing a great job!! Cheers, Brewsmithy
  9. You need 1 Gridcoin to get your wallet started basically, 2 is better. I just sent you the 2 gridcoin ( GRC ) plus enough to send your beacon to get your wallet in sync. Here are two links for you to get more coins, 1 every hour, 1 daily, and a link to a guide that will give you more instructions on how to gather more free coins. Here is a quick link to free Gridcoin ( GRC ) - You can hit that 1 time per hour Once a day, hit this link for free Gridcoin ( GRC ) Here is a page with links to get some free coins - Get free Gridcoin ( GRC ) or startup coins

  14. So far I have had feed back quoting the pools website where it says - What doesn't work:   Pool obtaining GridCoins from the network   Payments . . . so I am waiting until katiee is ready to take that down. Once we get into established payments, then I will spread around the 'join the pool' because I think it will really take off!! Cheers!!
  15. Hey Katiee and all you poolers out there! I have been down for the last 2 days, with no OS on my machine. I dumped windows 10 because it kept having issues with the wallet and was locking up running boinc. I have switched to Ubuntu and am back up and running now. Thank you Katiee for the pool payment, most excellent! I do appreciate you throwing in the extra GRC for us, however, seriously, it is not necessary. I have no problem with just waiting for my own cut from my own grinding. It is really a privilege to be able to use the pool to try to increase my own GRC, so stop throwing your GRC at us and let us earn it!! Very excited about the new profile/project settings page, really looking forward to it. I know you have been really working hard to get it going. Cheers! There is no worry about taking down your site to do the upgrade, I have enough projects stacked up that having a delay in uploading is no issue. Do what you gotta do!! Again, thank you for all the work you are doing for all of us, I for one really do appreciate your great work! Brew
