You may have seen many workunits just disappear from existence today.



Worry not! We realised there were far too many workunits scanning duplicate seeds, so we've scaled back the original workunits to the correct seed ranges (no in-progress results were touched, so none of you should have lost any credit).

We have located some promising seed candidates which were missed from processing and can be used as an input to this job, so they are currently set as the highest priority.

Also, we now have badges! If you view the forums, any comments in threads, or on the leaderboards; you will see the new badges.
We're open to suggestions for future badges, so please leave us some comments on this thread.

it would be better if they were not :(

"Top %%" is initially in the project, no need to change the standard (familiar) image
They are dynamic (depending on the speed and not on the work performed) and makes sense only within the project.
They are not saved by statistics sites and are not used in signatures.

The badge "Finder" is acceptable, it’s only advisable to pick up a picture that is associated with the project - if you look at them against the background of huge collections of badge collectors ;)

If it’s still a badge "project founder" then it is better to use special roles on the forum

Now please an option in community preferences for showing/not showing of badges. As I don't need to see them on every post and even in the forum index as well. Clutters. Of course I can go block them in uBlock Origin, but it would be friendlier to have the option to not show them. And leave that up to the user to decide.

Ah, there were no images bundled in the containerized version of BOINC. We're rebuilding ourselves for 1.2.1, so I'll use the defaults at that point assuming they're part of the usual BOINC installation.

The 'Founder' badge is to indicate users who joined during the beta-testing. I could rename it to something more obvious.

Is there some code I can steal for this, or am I missing a config toggle?

I agree that chip can use the above code as an example to disable these things. I already have hide signatures on because of the signatures some people have that are massive and way bigger than what they write into messages on the forums.
I also don't see in its documentation any mention of an option to disable these things.

I am happy there for new badges.
Anyway, what's wrong with someone collecting them?
If he is willing, why not, after all, to get them, you have to do the work for the project. After all, the creator of the project wants to have a lot of counting machines.
So "the wolf is full and the sheep are all right".
And if someone only prefers projects whit badges, well? Everyone has the right to count for a project they like. This is life and that's it. ;-)

Is there an overview which badge is received for the achievement of how many credits?

The BOINC server code supports badges for the top 1%, 5%, and 25% of recent average credit (RAC). They are represented by gold, silver, and bronze medal images, respectively, and are assigned to both users and teams.

Ok, so the bages are non-static? Then forget it, lack of motivation...

Brabants of Limburgs? Ergens anders in Nederland zeggen ze dat niet. Ik zie, het kon erger: de knien lopen los lus in ’t hok.

Anyway, this is the default badge system built into the BOINC back-end. Projects can use it, or add in their own system of badges. They're all free to do what they want. There's no need to get warm or cold over it.
