Discussion page now working fine. Agentb (talk) 00:02, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

What is the oldest version we keep in the FAQs? BOINC 6, BOINC 7?

I looked over the top 2000 hosts at [email protected] and the number running BOINC6 was exactly 20 (1%), with over 50% running specifically 7.6.22.

Over time some FAQs will be obsolete (for many reasons), so perhaps there needs to be a place for FAQs to retire gracefully. Agentb (talk) 00:58, 22 May 2016 (UTC)


I have looked at the list of recently connected clients on [email protected], with over a quarter still using version 6 or below. Kiska (talk) 10:16, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

What do we do with projects? Do we add them in, leave them out?

We could add a place holder for each project. If the Project admins and owners have their own place, then the only question is "Where is the Project's FAQ?". They might have good reason for not wanting to publish here, duplicating work etc, but i could see some small projects finding somewhere easy to publish. Agentb (talk) 01:11, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

CreditNew, what to do with it.

I'll write some to most of the CreditNew system/implementation. I expect this page to be completed in 4 weeks, complications might appear. :) --Kiska (talk) 04:00, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Project GPU requirements

Project GPU Requirements has a large table of changing data that needs to be manually maintained, maybe we should direct the user to go to the project site for details. If we're keeping the table we'll have to come back to it, it's pretty big. Bowtieguru (talk) 19:44, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Orange message bar?

Am I the only person where the orange message bar shows up? Or is that for everyone who has had a Talk item?
I followed everything in the book to get rid of it, but it's still there. It would seem I am an unregistered user, else I'd have the normal message warning. So if you find me missing one day... ;-) Jord (talk)

Currently in exam prep, so won't be able to edit anything or write for the next week or two

As the title says I have exams upcoming so I won't be able to help as much as I would like to. Kiska (talk) 23:29, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

That's okay, we're not much in a hurry. And I suspect some people (besides me) will eventually also go on vacation, or have other things on their mind. I'm looking into what studies I can go do to increase my knowledge. So just take it easy, work on things when you can. :) Jord (talk) 16:42, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

I am finally back! Exams took 2 weeks longer than expected due to campus flooding. Still writing creditNew, but I'll take rewriting sections with more priority. Also can someone give me an update to the wiki, I have been out of touch for 3 weeks . :) Kiska (talk) 15:11, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
