What a pleasant person you are.

It may come as a surprise to you, but both myself and many other people in the Gridcoin community actually care about BOINC and the projects.

Unfortunately it is up for removal as the project no longer has enough work to give everyone a fair shot at getting some work.

This means that if someone is lucky enough to get a work unit or two they get a disproportionate reward for doing very little actual work. It basically turns into a lottery.

For those that don't know, Gridcoin rewards work like this:

- Each day a certain number of Gridcoin is created and is allocated equally split between each Whitelisted project for rewards. (This is done as it is not possible to compare credit between different projects as each project uses there own modifiers)

- The rewards for each project are then distributed proportionally based on users Recent Average Credit (RAC).


If the project one day comes back to life and is once again stable I am sure we can revisit it, in the meantime everyone is better served if the reward incentivises people to crunch projects that need crunchers rather than fighting over the remaining work here.

As per my post in the other thread

As a temp fix I have been doing the following:

1) Stop Boinc client
2) Edit client_state.xml
- Replace all http://csgrid with https://csgrid
- Save File
3) Restart Boinc client

I need to do it for every WU though so wait until I have a few waiting and then do the edit in one shot.

I had already checked all the other data files and done a similar find/replace which got my downloads working so I assume it's something in the WU's themselves for the upload.
