Hi Neil,

The waiting of stats from Citizen Science Grid (CSG) http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg/ is over. The stats is in the usual place. Free-DC has added it to their list. Please add it.

However, the statistics are combining the three projects - [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] If we simply add CSG, we are double counting them for the total BOINC credits. Also these three projects have their individual stats exported. I do not know whether they will be updated in the future (at least [email protected] is, though there is no WUs at the moment) and should also by the BOINC statistics web sites.

Let every one has a thought of it

Cheers
Philip

Hi Philip,

Hmm... that's a tough one. From reading the news item on the site it reads to me that the credit from the sub projects is only carried over to the parent project if a user opts to link their accounts?

Maybe the best solution would be to remove the three sub projects from my site and only have the parent project?

Note: I will keep the data from the sub projects for a while.

Cheers,

Neil.

Hi Neil,

There are some discussion at CSG forum on the same issue, including Bok of Free-DC. Simply removing the original projects will result in the loss of some credits of users unless all users choose to link their accounts to the new CSG accounts.

Difficult choices.

Hi,

The project has now been added.

If needs be, at some later date the "sub-projects" can be disabled on my site which means they wouldn't appear in the stats graphics etc.

Cheers,

Neil.

New project from an old one: [email protected] has morphed into [email protected]
New project URL: http://findah.ucd.ie/
[email protected] stands for [email protected] so it will expand beyond Malaria eventually.

It's just being set up now so nothing works yet except the home page, account and the forums but from what I see, credit is being carried over from the previous incarnation to this one.

Thanks for the heads up.

At the time of writing, the stats files are empty :-(

Not surprising as they haven't issued any work yet.

Just got my first work from the newly named project so expect some stats soon. I don't see it listed yet anyway.

I should add a qualifier. The new WU's are having issues and once again the server has been shut down. In my case and at least one other, the work caused 100% CPU usage in all cores. So they had to be aborted. Teething troubles no doubt, they are working on it.

I see they are exporting stats now.

I've also found that the URL for FightMalaria: http://boinc.ucd.ie/fmah actually redirects to http://findah.ucd.ie anyway so my site has been using the stats files from the new URL for FightMalaria anyway!

I guess I can just rename "[email protected]" to "[email protected]" in this case and update the URLs in my database?

Cheers,

Neil.

I would imagine that's OK, the owner did say something about everyone having transitioned without a hitch. I know my stats were carried over.
