in total:

  • 17 players (from 22 team members) have played in the 4 tournaments so far (more stats in a few days)


onlypuzzles also asked:

  • "anyone here would be interested in some short lessons to help them improve?"
  • "maybe for an hour or so on the tournament days after the tournament."
  • "That way I/we could go over some games with them and help them identify mistakes and how to play better. This might help keep more players coming back, too, as people may feel less discouraged at not winning many games."

WTF has happened to this superblock? Only one project in it??

 

I think there was too much superblock failing in the last time.


Gridcoin is cool! It helps Humanity, too!

 

Warning: politically interested person.

If you've ZERO magnitude in your #Gridcoin wallet:

 

  • close or lock your wallet: do NOT stake ! (or stake only as investor)

 

That way your rewards will just be delayed + not lost.

 

TomasBrod> Erkan_Yilmaz: but if some heavy wallet takes my advice, net stake weight will drop and reduce security of net.

So right after I read @erkan 's post about backing out of staking with a zero magnitude, my own mag drops to zero and I stand informed that my magnitude is too low for POR reward.  Oh well, things happen.

Import post on th BOINC website about the future of BOINC

 

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/tbd.php

That mostly does not concern us, as it's a side project to BOINC.

 

& will not change the way we allocate our resources...only give TBD BOINC more power from other demographics.

$GRC bounty:

  • solving superblock situation (for 99h no superblock) + creating the superblock

 

Why is this important?

  • e.g. newcomers currently can not get rewarded or rewarded fairly (since their magnitude builds up at begin). The fair rewarding is also important, b/c people can just sit on their "free" magnitude which holds longer.

Our 1 million block is upcoming (in about 58 days)...

 

We can use this opportunity to make marketing, raise awareness for BOINC/Gridcoin,... 

 

Proposed ideas include:

  • prizes, community-funded torrential rain
  • meme challenge
  • videos
  • Gridcoin mascot
  • "best fans of science week"
  • social media showing off research rigs/hardware
  • social media for best projects
  • attention to BOINC
  • social media selfies with the Gridcoin client

 

What ideas do you have ?
