Silver or better on everything!

Badge for LLR? I don't believe in taking already awarded badges away from people to increase milestones.
How about 5M Pearl or Opal, 20M Emerald, 50M Sapphire, 100M Diamond?

New SR5 project soon coming to BOINC?

We (meaning the admins) have been talking about this for a while, and I've got a proposal for new badge levels. You'll notice that the levels associated with the new badges are probably somewhat higher than you may have expected. We've looked in the database, and we wanted to create new goals for everyone, including people who have a lot of computers at their disposal. Right now, the most credit anyone has in a single project is a bit over 5 billion -- which is quite a lot beyond the current 4 million credits for the ruby badge. In this proposal -- and it's only a proposal at this point -- the badges go all the way up to 100 billion for sieves, and 50 billion for llr.

I know these numbers may seem really high, but if I implimented these badges right now, we'd already have 18 people with sapphire badges, and one of those is more than halfway to emerald. (Those would all be PPS Sieve badges except for one in the PSA.)

bronze 10K/20K
silver 100K/200K
gold 500K/1M
amethyst 1M/2M
ruby 2M/4M
turquoise 5M/10M
cherry opal 25M/50M
jade 50M/100M
sapphire 500M/1B
emerald 5B/10B
onyx 50B/100B

Comments are welcome, but one rule is that the levels, colors, and names of the 5 existing badges are not going to change.

I like the new colors...

I suggest that you move your last post to a new thread.

Now, my two cents:

The difference between CPU/GPU work is, on average, much higher than the 1/2 ratio. So, I would propose a different approach to the new badges (with which I agree):

1. Credit milestones based on GPU apps available/CPU-only instead of sieve/primesearching (as it now already with GFN). This would mean than TRP sieve (cpu only) would require lower credits.

2. Lower the CPU-only milestones on the new badges (keeping the GPU ones):

turquoise 4M/10M
cherry opal 10M/50M
jade 20M/100M
sapphire 100M/1B
emerald 1B/10B
onyx 5B/100B

This would allow badge collections to be somewhat more balanced (a modern host, with an average gpu, can reach ruby badges on PPS sieve in a month or less, but it will take several months to reach the same badge on a single llr sub-project). Some users reached ruby on GPU available sub-projetcs using cpu only, but that isn't probably the most common situation.

I thought about that and decided not to do it. I don't want to assign badge levels -- which will be with us forever -- based upon what kind of apps are available today.

Don't forget that the 2:1 ratio for llr/sieve badge levels was established before we had any GPU sieve apps. It's not based on CPU speed vs. GPU speed. At least not entirely, anyway -- GFN might be the exception.

Furthermore, credit levels could radically change with a working GPU LLR app. So I'd rather not assume that the LLR badge levels need to be much lower than sieve badge levels because of the speed difference between CPUs and GPUs.

I like the idea of new badges. The numbers do not look too bad to me. The only thing is we may never get the top end on some of the projects. One example is SGS, once we find a new Sophie there is not a guarantee the next set will be crunched. We had this before and it comes up in conversation every so often with ones we have currently stopped/finished.

I agree with the new technology (AVX2, newer video cards, programming advances) these numbers may at some time be as reachable as the Ruby badges are today.

The colors and names are pleasing, also. So I guess I am mostly positive on the idea. I just wish I could have a way to advance some of the badges I may never be able to advance (AP26 for sure, but others maybe).

I am pretty partial to this project and plan on crunching something here most of the time.

On a side note, my TPR just needs one more validate to be Ruby and about 2-3 days after the current challenge Woodall should have enough completed to give me Ruby in all current projects. So less than 2 weeks to have enough crunched and whatever time it takes to get the Woodalls validated to be visible.

My only request would be if it were possible to increase their size, to make the colors stand out a bit more, and make them more readable.

I like the new color scheme, though. Be a while before I clear ruby on anything though, with my current Distributed Computing goals, however.

It's possible, but that would require examining each webpage where they appear to see if the page needs to be modified with larger images. It also means that every 3rd party website that uses our badges would also need to see if their pages need to be adjusted. I'm not sure it would be worth the effort, and as a general rule I try to avoid any unnecessary changes that will create work for other webmasters.

This does not really affect me, I am quite happy with Ruby as top (or I would be if I could get one!!) but I agree with the upgrade.

The proposed ones look good to me, obviously a lot of thought has gone into it.

For those of us with just small systems perhaps there could be added three new 'classes' -- LLR for the total LLR credits, SV for the total Sieve credits and PG for the total PG credits. Then the high country would be open to a lot more of us. The PG alone would be good and should not take too much setting up as the data is already available.

For those of us with just small systems perhaps there could be added three new 'classes' -- LLR for the total LLR credits, SV for the total Sieve credits and PG for the total PG credits. Then the high country would be open to a lot more of us. The PG alone would be good and should not take too much setting up as the data is already available.


It's possible. I was thinking about whether we should do something like this. The one drawback I could see would be if it encourages people to participate in fewer projects. The point of the badges is to encourage people to participate in more projects.

The values for the LLR-Badges are too high. I think that nobody, including "new borns", will be able to reach 50 Billion within lifetime for LLR.

That's good. The numbers were chosen to be somewhat above what's reasonably attainable right now so that they're not rapidly surpassed as soon as the next technological breakthrough occurs. Just a few years ago the highest badge was for 1 million credits. Three years later and someone has in excess of five thousand times as much credit in a single project.

You may not be aware of this, but with the advent of cloud computing, some people make use of these facilities to do huge amount of boinc computing. It's not necessarily people with a lot of cash burning a hole in their pocket; some people have legitimate access to those servers for one reason or another and can afford to throw idle cores at a distributed computing project.

I would bet that someone will likely get to 50 billion credits in *my* lifetime, let alone a newborn's lifetime, and I'm likely a lot closer to the grave than the cradle. Regardless, if nobody ever gets that much credit, does it make a difference if the badge exists or not?

I agree -- the point of additional badges is to provide incentives to those with large amounts of computing power to spread that power across more primegrid subprojects, and to crunch primegrid instead of other projects. The goals need to be set high by today's standards, or in a few years they will have been reached by all of the crunchers with lots of computing power due to advances in technology.

I like this proposal.

I like the idea of more badges. I've been thinking about it for awhile myself.

The only thing I'd change is get rid of Cherry Opal and move the rest up, dropping the last position for now and changing Onyx to Black Diamond. That bright red screams 'warning/stop/danger' in peoples subconscious.

How time-consuming is it to implement discussed proposal?

If not much, how about releasing new badges gradually?
Let's say: new badge level every year, perhaps at the beggining of challenge season?

This would keep participants interested and wouldn't make some badges out of reach.
Badges levels are 2x or even 10x times credit. Doing 2x or even 10x more work every year is challending goal for everyone.

I like the new levels. If I am reading correctly I would have one jade and be more than half way to two turquoise, so this would add some more challenge to PG for me.

On color/names I see the black/onyx as a potential issue. In my mind I see black as the last badge so it would seem odd when new levels are needed (hopefully multiple years from now) to have additional levels above black. I don't have a different suggestion and could adjust if I ever had to deal with earning a badge beyond onyx.

I am in favor of implementing as proposed all at once.

I like this idea.

I think an ``all-at-once'' approach would be best, with a reevaluation again sometime in the (ideally, not very distant) future when we break through these.

Don't particularly like the Onyx / Black idea, as it feel a bit too ``final,'' but perhaps any future sets would have images in a different style.

It would be neat for all the new badges to have white text (most of the proposed ones do already). That would be a nice subtle distinguishing mark.

The goal values aren't spaced very nicely. 2.5xRuby to the next level is fine. Then 5x that to the next is fine. But then we go to 2x for jade? And then bump it up to 10x, 10x, 10x? A bit more consistency would be nice, I think.

Perhaps something like this (depending on how many levels you want, double for the sieve values of course):
5M (2.5x increase, slightly more than the 2x's we've got going on right now)
20M (4x increase, bumps it up, still a round number)
100 M (5x, nice)
500 M (5x)
2 B (4x, but a nice number)
10 B (5x)
50 B (5x)
250 B (5x)
1 T (4x, but a nice number)

Loving the suggested badge scheme. I've maxed out my badges for GPU projects in short order and would love to have something higher to aim for. Within 3 years I'll also max out my CPU projects, sooner if I buy a Haswell. Then I might wander off with trying to optimise my prime finding chances in mind. Also, if you look at the user stats people tend to hit a badge level then leave it be. For instance look at all the Badge transitions for TRP:
http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=userwork&proj=pgrid&subproj=The%20Riesel%20Problem%20%28LLR%29
New badges could suck in a lot of extra crunching horse power for the project, from both old and new crunchers.
Those unobtainable badges will be coverted!

I'll chime in. The main point I'd like to lobby for is that any new badges be phased in, one at a time in increasing order. That way, anyone who's current work would skip a level or two would have a chance to see their badge "board" with each new color, at least for a while. Maybe one new badge level every 2 months?

I think there is merit to CGKIII's suggested modification to the badge scoring progression. One issue though is that if we use more badge levels to get to a certain credit level, we may have trouble finding enough distinctly-different and pleasing colors. In that regard, my minor mod to MG's naming would be to change Onyx to Black Opal (a lot better known than Cherry, I think, at least for people Down Under), and change Cherry Opal to Garnet. One more badge color possibility is of course white, which could be a 1-pixel black box outline and lettering on a white background. This could be "diamond". Edit: a bright orange, and a medium dark purple, also come to mind as possible colors. Please, no animated .gif images! (not that I thought anyone would suggest that).

Thanks everyone for the topic and the conversation. Fun!

I like the idea of more badges. I've been thinking about it for awhile myself.

The only thing I'd change is get rid of Cherry Opal and move the rest up, dropping the last position for now and changing Onyx to Black Diamond. That bright red screams 'warning/stop/danger' in peoples subconscious.


I don't want to drop the cherry opal level. If anything, Having more levels between the 10x increments might be better. The highest level for the badges, in particular the 100B on the sieve, needs to be that high. The badge below it is already within striking distance, so I want to have at least one badge that's still a stretch for everyone.

As for the red being too bright, I could probably dim it somewhat. I'll play with that. I'm not crazy with the name "cherry opal" (which is actually "Mexican cherry opal", by the way), but since ruby is already taken I couldn't come up with a better name.

Regarding "black diamond", I specifically avoided any form of diamond since it has a certain finality to it. All things considered, it's probably better not to assume that there won't be even higher badges in the future.

How time-consuming is it to implement discussed proposal?


Trivial. By far the hardest part is coming up with right colors and deciding on the credit levels. Actually creating the badge images, and modifying the web pages to use them, only takes a few minutes.

If not much, how about releasing new badges gradually?
Let's say: new badge level every year, perhaps at the beggining of challenge season?

This would keep participants interested and wouldn't make some badges out of reach.
Badges levels are 2x or even 10x times credit. Doing 2x or even 10x more work every year is challending goal for everyone.


I hear what you're saying, but I'm not sure if it's the right approach. The main purpose of badges and challenges is to encourage people to participate. It seems to me that staggering the release, which would mean that people with the most credit don't immediately have new goals to work towards, might be counter productive. "I'll wait until they release a new badge for me" isn't the reaction I'm trying to produce. In order to give every current participant a goal to work towards, we would need to release all the badges up through emerald. The only badge that could be delayed, therefore, is the onyx badge, and that begs the question: If nobody has the badge, does it matter if I say it's released or not? It won't be displayed anywhere.

If it were me with the billions of credits (I could only wish!), I'm not sure I'd like having those badges delayed.

That being said, this is only a proposal at this point, and staggering the release can be considered.

I like the new levels. If I am reading correctly I would have one jade and be more than half way to two turquoise, so this would add some more challenge to PG for me.[

On color/names I see the black/onyx as a potential issue. In my mind I see black as the last badge so it would seem odd when new levels are needed (hopefully multiple years from now) to have additional levels above black. I don't have a different suggestion and could adjust if I ever had to deal with earning a badge beyond onyx.

I am in favor of implementing as proposed all at once.


Black was chosen as the last badge because, like white, it represents an extreme end to the color spectrum, so it's a good badge to end the current list. I don't think it will be too jarring if we need more badges after that, although I might consider replacing it. Coming up with new, visually distinct colors is challenging, however.

I did avoid calling it 'black diamond', however, for that very reason.

The badge below it is already within striking distance, so I want to have at least one badge that's still a stretch for everyone.

I meant drop the color not the level (or replace it) and move the succeeding colors up one level.

Don't particularly like the Onyx / Black idea, as it feel a bit too ``final,'' but perhaps any future sets would have images in a different style.


I guess it's a fine line -- I feel it's both "final" and "not final" -- it seems like a good color to end with, for now, but it wouldn't be so awful is there's more badges after it some years from now.

It would be neat for all the new badges to have white text (most of the proposed ones do already). That would be a nice subtle distinguishing mark.


Interesting idea. I'll have to play with that and see. I put it in originally because I had to for the black badge, and it made some of the other dark badges easier to read.

The goal values aren't spaced very nicely. 2.5xRuby to the next level is fine. Then 5x that to the next is fine. But then we go to 2x for jade? And then bump it up to 10x, 10x, 10x? A bit more consistency would be nice, I think.

Perhaps something like this (depending on how many levels you want, double for the sieve values of course):
5M (2.5x increase, slightly more than the 2x's we've got going on right now)
20M (4x increase, bumps it up, still a round number)
100 M (5x, nice)
500 M (5x)
2 B (4x, but a nice number)
10 B (5x)
50 B (5x)
250 B (5x)
1 T (4x, but a nice number)


There's a lot of merit to this suggestion. I like your numbers better than miine. It would take one extra badge level to get to 50B/100B, but that's not so bad. The only thing I don't like about it is that the numbers alternate between successive powers of 10. My original thinking was to go 1-2-5 on llr and 1-2-4 on sieves at each power of 10, so there would be a nice smooth progression with multipliers of either 2 or 2.5 all the up. The problem with that is that I'd need 13 new badges instead of 6 to get up to 50B/100B. It was hard enough coming up with 6 new colors.

Loving the suggested badge scheme. I've maxed out my badges for GPU projects in short order and would love to have something higher to aim for. Within 3 years I'll also max out my CPU projects, sooner if I buy a Haswell. Then I might wander off with trying to optimise my prime finding chances in mind. Also, if you look at the user stats people tend to hit a badge level then leave it be. For instance look at all the Badge transitions for TRP:
http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=userwork&proj=pgrid&subproj=The%20Riesel%20Problem%20%28LLR%29
New badges could suck in a lot of extra crunching horse power for the project, from both old and new crunchers.
Those unobtainable badges will be coverted!


Many, many people (myself included) are drawn in by the "full set of badges" concept. It keeps things interesting. It makes the project more fun, and keeps people interested. I've noticed more and more projects implementing badge systems.

I'll chime in. The main point I'd like to lobby for is that any new badges be phased in, one at a time in increasing order. That way, anyone who's current work would skip a level or two would have a chance to see their badge "board" with each new color, at least for a while. Maybe one new badge level every 2 months?


This was pretty much answered previously. While this has merit, the downside is I'd prefer to have new goals immediately for everyone.

I think there is merit to CGKIII's suggested modification to the badge scoring progression. One issue though is that if we use more badge levels to get to a certain credit level, we may have trouble finding enough distinctly-different and pleasing colors.


His numbers only take one extra badge to get to the onyx 50B/100B level, so it's not so bad. As I mentioned in an earlier reply, I'd really like to go to a progression with a lot more badges, but it may be difficult to come up with so many colors, and I'm not sure if having so many badges would be a good thing. We currently have 5, my proposal brings us to 11, CGKIII's brings us to 12 (if we stop at 50B/100B), and my 1-2-5/1-2-4 progression would give us a whopping 18 badges.

In that regard, my minor mod to MG's naming would be to change Onyx to Black Opal (a lot better known than Cherry, I think, at least for people Down Under), and change Cherry Opal to Garnet.


Black isn't the problem; I could have called it a lot of things. Black opal, onyx, obsidian, and black diamond come to mind immediately. The red is the problem; the only gem really associated with red is ruby, and that's already used. A whole lot of gems (garnet, beryl, opal, topaz, spinel, tourmaline, zircon etc.) seem to come in every color of the rainbow so they're not really good descriptors for colors.

One more badge color possibility is of course white, which could be a 1-pixel black box outline and lettering on a white background. This could be "diamond".


I like this idea, but those badges are only 16 pixels wide, and making a 1-pixel border would reduce that to 14 pixels. The border would overlap the text. If the border was outside the current badge, the images would be 18x18, and as I said previously, I'd prefer not to change the size of the badges.

Edit: a bright orange, and a medium dark purple, also come to mind as possible colors. Please, no animated .gif images! (not that I thought anyone would suggest that).

Thanks everyone for the topic and the conversation. Fun!

--Gary


Orange is a lot like our gold badge, and would be hard to distinguish. I was originally going to use a bright yellow instead of red, but it was too close to gold. Orange is even closer. Purple seems like a good option for another color. Suggestions needed for names, however.

As for animated gifs, all I can say is you'll need to pry my keyboard out of my cold, dead hands before that happens. :)

I like the idea of more badges. I've been thinking about it for awhile myself.

The only thing I'd change is get rid of Cherry Opal and move the rest up, dropping the last position for now and changing Onyx to Black Diamond. That bright red screams 'warning/stop/danger' in peoples subconscious.


I don't want to drop the cherry opal level. If anything, Having more levels between the 10x increments might be better. The highest level for the badges, in particular the 100B on the sieve, needs to be that high. The badge below it is already within striking distance, so I want to have at least one badge that's still a stretch for everyone.

I meant drop the color not the level (or replace it) and move the succeeding colors up one level.


I understood what you were saying, but I think I got a little off track in my reply. Sorry about that. I like the red because it's easy to distinguish, and it's really hard to come up with colors that are identifiable. It's one thing when they're both displayed and you can that, for example, this is gold and that is yellow. But when only the one badge is displayed, telling gold from yellow or orange becomes a lot more difficult.

I've noticed more and more projects implementing badge systems.

They are a draw and when I figured I was "near" the end of the badge list here the draw of other badges on other projects became a twinkle in my eye. So they are a draw. I am proud to say I have the badges I do at PG, plus it is the project I have the most credit it and it has other perks lie finding numbers large enough to get your name in a publication.

So adding badges to me is a challenge that I would love to work on. I know I may never reach many of them, but just to get a Black Onyx on one subproject would be a thrill. So the draw would be to stick with PG for me instead of off playing on someone else's turf for some badge that wasn't a twinkle in my eye until I made all the badges here.

Good idea with new badges.

I've my own proposition to projects, which were finished. Maybe make a badge, one kind and color ( ex. white + name of the project ). Then, every user would have an option to choose this one or stay with current. In example, i have:

- bronze AP26;
- silver psp sieve:

Now, 2 options. Stay with this badge or change them to one mentioned above, regardless of points.

- white ap26;
- white psp sieve;

What do you think about that?

Another tangential thought I had regarding new badges was:

How about modifying the badges such that there can be a "retired project" indicator of sorts for the projects which are no longer running. Maybe white text instead of black, or some other indicator. 16x16 pixels doesn't give a lot of room, though. Maybe color the corners white or something to offset them a little.

I'm not sure what the purpose would be for offering a choice. I will say, however, that setting up the mechanics for making an option for this is a lot more work than simply adding more badges, so it's unlikely to happen unless there's a compelling reason to do so.

Another tangential thought I had regarding new badges was:

How about modifying the badges such that there can be a "retired project" indicator of sorts for the projects which are no longer running. Maybe white text instead of black, or some other indicator. 16x16 pixels doesn't give a lot of room, though. Maybe color the corners white or something to offset them a little.


Interesting idea.

Thanks for all the comments. It's really helpful!

I've come to the conclusion that I've been letting the tail wag the dog. I've kept the number of badges to a minimum because it's so hard to come up with color schemes that can be easily differentiated. The result was badges with a 10x difference between one badge and the next, which I wasn't really happy with. So I'm going back to the drawing board, and starting with the levels at which I'd like to have badges -- and then I'll figure out how to draw them such that each badge can be easily distinguished from any other badge. I have an idea about that, and I'll post it a little later on once I play with it and see what it really looks like. But for now, here's the new levels for the badges. Don't worry yet what they'll look like:

10,000 20,000 bronze 100,000 200,000 10 silver 500,000 1,000,000 5 gold 1,000,000 2,000,000 2 amethyst 2,000,000 4,000,000 2 ruby 5,000,000 10,000,000 2.5 10,000,000 20,000,000 2 20,000,000 40,000,000 2 50,000,000 100,000,000 2.5 100,000,000 200,000,000 2 200,000,000 400,000,000 2 500,000,000 1,000,000,000 2.5 1,000,000,000 2,000,000,000 2 2,000,000,000 4,000,000,000 2 5,000,000,000 10,000,000,000 2.5 10,000,000,000 20,000,000,000 2 20,000,000,000 40,000,000,000 2 50,000,000,000 100,000,000,000 2.5


The first two columns are the required credits for each badge (llr and sieve/AP/GFN), and the third column is the multiplicative difference between that badge and the previous badge.

This is what I've done with the badges:

I got rid of black/onyx.

I got rid of red/cherry opal.

I created a second version of each color, so there's now a "bronze" and a "double bronze". The double colors have the bottom half of the badge much darker (or lighter) than the top half so it's easy to distinguish them from the single colors. Furthermore, for the sieve badges, the text color in the bottom line is reversed, so one line of text is black and the other is white.

bronze 10K/20K
silver 100K/200K
gold 500K/1M
amethyst 1M/2M
ruby 2M/4M
turquoise 5M/10M
jade 10M/20M
sapphire 20M/40M
emerald 50M/100M
double bronze 100M/200M
double silver 200M/400M
double gold 500M/1B
double amethyst 1B/2B
double ruby 2B/4B
double turquoise 5B/10B
double jade 10B/20B
double sapphire 20B/40B
double emerald 50B/100B

I like it! I'm still a proponent of larger badges (I think WCG's are a good size), but that's my vision impairment speaking.

Reserving "Onyx" for a potential future expansion?

I like it! I'm still a proponent of larger badges (I think WCG's are a good size), but that's my vision impairment speaking.


CTRL + is your (and my) friend.

Reserving "Onyx" for a potential future expansion?


Maybe. I agree somewhat that using a black or white badge has somewhat of a finality to it. So I'd just as soon avoid it.

Double colored badges, nice idea. Also adding the extra spots really makes this even more appealing to me. Less time to the next step making it feel less like a chore.

I vote yes for the newest scheme.

What about a white badge for someone who has completed a wu for credit in a subproject but does not qualify for a badge.

Like a participation badge? That way it would encourage people to do even a little bit of work on a subproject.

I like the new scheme.

I support the idea of ridiculously high medals; if we assume Moore's law to hold in ten years we'll have 30 times the current computing power per dollar, meaning at least some of us are able to get it in time. I'm not aware of the current way the point system takes this into account, but these are just my 2 cents.

Also the amount of top-tier badges that show on some user's profiles justify the addition of more medals imho.

It's an idea that's been brought up in the past and is something I agree with, at least with the retired projects. I'm not sure if I like the idea for active projects. Do we want "a full set of 1-credit badges"?

Personally I haven't taken much notice of badges, but this will be because of the lack of clarity between some of them, so I'm definitely all for clearer obvious identification. Looks like the above solution with double-colours is getting complicated though! Mayb 1M, 250M, 5B etc in the badge name.

If you hover your mouse over the badges, it shows you the details of the badge. (This isn't true for the proposed badges you see in my forum posts. It's only true for real badges displayed by the system.)

There isn't room to put the credit amount in the badge itself without making the badges substantially larger, and I'd prefer to avoid that.

Lol - I think the current challenge is causing lots of out of the box thinking right now :)

Hi guys!

I'd like to propose a new idea here. We have badges for accumulating boinc credits in sub-projects, but the main idea of Primegrid is finding primes!

Why don't we introduce a badge system consisting of 2(3) badges:
One is for an amount of primes a user has discovered (or maybe two, where one is for initial finding and another one is for double checking) and another one is for the amount of prime score.

How about that?

That's got some merit. It would be more difficult to implement, however. But not impossible.

I support the idea of ridiculously high medals; if we assume Moore's law to hold in ten years we'll have 30 times the current computing power per dollar, meaning at least some of us are able to get it in time. I'm not aware of the current way the point system takes this into account, but these are just my 2 cents.

Also the amount of top-tier badges that show on some user's profiles justify the addition of more medals imho.


I also support the idea of presently unachievable badges. In 'Dune Messiah' Frank Herbert makes a very good point about the value of achivement gained from competing against yourself in an open ended system. The setting of a 'how high can I get?' aim here is certainly worthwhile.

I like the increased number/reduced spacing. Wasn't too sure about the double color, but there is one thing in its favor: when more badges beyond these are needed, simply add triple <whatever> with vertical double colors.

WRT the comments on the finality of diamond, here's a thought. When a subproject is finally retired, crunchers who have achieved the highest badge level available when the subproject was active would have their badge converted to a diamond badge.

Just to make certain I'm clear, with the current badge levels this would mean if a subproject is retired then all holders of ruby badges in that subproject would have a diamond badge. If nobody has reached ruby in that subproject, no diamond badges.

Like Rick I don't like the double-coloured badges, after going through sapphire and emerald, it would seem strange to be presented with a dirty brown badge again. Also, bronze/silver/gold are established medals in... well, most things, but let's take the Olympics for example... would you rather win 8 golds or two bronzes? That isn't a flawless comparison, admittedly, because one individual getting two bronzes in exactly the same event isn't possible, bit still, "double bronze" sounds like you've come third twice, not gone waaaay beyond gold.

I think the turquoise badge looks ugly and also out of place, too, if awards are meant to be more dignified and special as they progress in order of merit, I think that shade of turquoise should be the badge for deliberately letting a GFN-WR WU time out.

Anyway, I put my criticisms first because I wanted to end by saying that I love the idea of new badges, and would like to see an agreement (or as close to one as is possible on a forum full of people from such diverse backgrounds) reached and the badges implemented sooner rather than later. If everyone else likes the turquoise one, then so be it, I'll never mention it again.

Well I might ;)

Edit for clarity: I think you got the badge colours right first time, minus my complaints about the turquoise one, here. As for the credit limits associated with them, I think you and the rest of the mods should decide those alone; it would be less biased to any users and more focused on what goals are being aimed for in which projects. At the same time, people can still choose to exploit (I mean that in the positive sense) their own hardware by tending towards the projects which suit it, and there'll be badge progression for that too.

Is this supposed to be a hint that AP26 will be restarted?

Anyway...now to the proposal.
Whaterver the colors, I think that setting the bar for the LLRs at just half of the GPU-crunchable seives is, mildly put, imbalanced. GPUs don't crunch just twice as fast as CPUs. I'd prefer to see the limit for LLRs much lower.

As for the credit limits associated with them, I think you and the rest of the mods should decide those alone; it would be less biased to any users and more focused on what goals are being aimed for in which projects. At the same time, people can still choose to exploit (I mean that in the positive sense) their own hardware by tending towards the projects which suit it, and there'll be badge progression for that too.


I find that asking for feedback with any sort of user interface is immensely helpful in improving the interface. Indeed, this discussion has been immensely helpful. I'm pretty certain at this point that the badge levels -- all 18 of them -- are going to stay where they are. What they'll actually look like is not decided yet.

Just be glad I never seriously considered my REALLY nerdy badge proposal. I was thinking that our badges should reflect PrimeGrid's nature. I like what GPUGRID did with their new badge system: each badge level is a depiction of a progressively more complex organic molecule. So, for PrimeGrid, I'd assign each badge a small prime number (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc.), and each person would get a single badge that contained just one number. That number would be all of the prime badge identifiers multiplied together. To see what the component badges are, you would need to factor the badge number.

As for colors, #FF6E00 (RGB) is a nice orange which is distinctive from the current gold and ruby badges, and also from the proposed cherry opal (which is pure red). Tweak to taste, of course. For purple, a brighter shade like #B000FF would work, or something much darker like #6E00BE. Or both, if you need two different shades.

"Topaz" comes in many colors, of which yellow is the most common, but orange is also very well known. I'd propose that as an option if orange is usable. As for purple, well, we've already used the obvious choice. I don't find any good alternatives on the web for other purplish badges... what's "tourmaline"? Maybe go non-gem to "iodine"? "lilac"? :-) Nah...

Thought of another badge... how about a much-darker gray badge and call it "platinum"? The current Silver badge is #C0C0C0, how about something like #888888? It's distinct from the current silver, and also definitely not completely black.

Is this supposed to be a hint that AP26 will be restarted?


Absolutely not.

Anyway...now to the proposal.
Whaterver the colors, I think that setting the bar for the LLRs at just half of the GPU-crunchable seives is, mildly put, imbalanced. GPUs don't crunch just twice as fast as CPUs. I'd prefer to see the limit for LLRs much lower.

The orange and purples might work. The darker grey is easy to distinguish when it's side by side with the current silver badge, but if it was on the page alone, without the other grey next to it, would it be that easy to tell which grey it was? I think it might need to be darker still, so it's obvious at a glance it's the dark grey and not the light grey.

The other thing is that these are the worst looking badges of any project in the entire BOINC badge-supporting catalogue. While I applaud the current effort, couldn't we take this opportunity to rework them into something slightly bigger, much better looking and representative of the project?

I also don't like the current double-colored badge proposal. But I have an idea for how to replace it. PrimeGrid works with a lot of exponential numbers. So I propose what I call an exponential badge: Put the color in the upper-right corner and leave the rest white. Think of it as 2^bronzeth power. I would call this an "exponential bronze".



Naturally, silver, gold, etc. would follow from there. You can go even further. Imagine 2^2^bronzeth power. I would call this a "Fermat badge", in this case, a "Fermat bronze".



Again, naturally, silver, gold, etc. would follow from there. I wouldn't use different colors on the left and right parts for a "Fermat" badge, but I suppose you could.

Edit: Now that I see this against a white background, I think a black border might help.

I think it's fair to say that everyone agrees with you. However, I think that our current badges may represent the epitome of our artistic abilities. We're all math geeks, remember? :)

There's been more than a little discussion behind the scenes about this. It may be that we implement something simple in the near term because I would like to get higher level badges released sooner rather than later, and then at some later date completely redesign what the badges look like (without changing the requirement for the badges.) When I say "completely redesign", I mean that almost everything would be open to change, except for the credit levels for the badges and the prohibition on animated gifs.

It's hard to come up with sequences of 18 items, however. Here's a few that come to mind:

4004
8008
8080
8086
80186
80286
80386
80486
Pentium
Celeron
Core2
Core i3
Core i5
Core i7

That's 14, but if we add in cpus from other manufacturers (Zylog, Motorola, and of course AMD) there's more than enough. Not sure how you draw those, however.

Another idea is using logic circuits:

not gate
nor gate
and gate
nand gate
flip flop
etc. There's a zillion of them, although only a handful of them are nice simple ones like those.

We could use a depiction of a DIP (dual inline package), and increase the number of pins for each badge level.

None of those ideas are perfect.

I like the shield-like look.

Is it set in stone that the current 5 badges cannot change? What about doing:

bronze -> bronze-shield -> silver -> silver-shield -> gold -> gold-shield -> ... -> victory!

This provides a more natural progression (see previous comment about bronze again after ruby/etc). Granted, it would change everyone's current badges, a probably ruffle feathers.

Shield badges are better idea than two-colored ones.



bronze -> bronze-shield -> silver -> silver-shield -> gold -> gold-shield -> ... -> victory!

Exactly.

I've thought about that myself. There's even more reasons why this would be preferable, in particular it makes adding even more badges later simpler.

The downside is people who now have silver badges would have bronze-shield badges, gold would be silver, amethyst would be silver-shield, and ruby would be gold. I'm not sure how people would like that. I think this definitely makes more sense, and if we were starting from scratch I'd definitely do it that way, but being as people have had badges for a few years I'm not sure if the transition will be well received.

For example, with the current (bronze -> emerald -> bronze-shield -> emerald shield) I was looking at getting some new colors when the badges go live. If we use the bronze -> bronze-shield -> silver... progression, I'll have more shapes, but fewer colors than I do now. That would be true for the vast majority of participants.

I guess another way to look at it is, which would you rather see in your own badge display, more shapes or more colors?

I think I prefer the alternating version - bronze, bronze-shield, silver, silver-shield etc. Although I can see how someone who has aimed for a certain colour rather than a number of credits might be a bit miffed about that.

As long as you have the letters arranged to fit that V shape, here's another idea:



A "ribbon and medal" model. The next question is how to arrange it. If you're willing to change the old badges, they could all be the original color medal on a bronze ribbon. Then the next level could be a silver ribbon starting with a bronze medal and so on.

Otherwise, you could leave the original badges as "empty ribbons" and start with the above progression. Or you could progress the ribbons while keeping the medals constant (starting with none, then bronze, etc.)

Edit: Here's one with a SV if you're curious how that looks:

After some discussion, we are NOT going to change the progression to bronze -> bronze-shield -> silver -> silver-shield. The biggest problem is that some people -- and many external sites -- use the existing badges in signatures and elsewhere, and if, say, gold-square means one thing in the new system and something different in the old system it's going to be confusing and inconsistent. We're going to leave the existing badges as they are, so we'll stay with bronze -> emerald -> bronze-shield -> emerald-shield.

Neither is perfect, but it's the better of the two options.

I like the first 'new' badge system with multiples of 10x and the distinctive colours. I see no reason to add 10+ badges, as only a handful of people will accomplish them, but who am I with only 4 ruby badges.

edit:
Just keep it simple like this:
10M
100M
1.000M = 1B
10.000M =10B
100.000M = 100B

I like the shield shapes A LOT. I would propose implementing/replacing the shield for the current square shaped ones now/ASAP (including the 4 new levels after Ruby) and continue discussions on shapes (maybe a star shape?), colors and sizes for the higher levels after that.

Sounds good either way to me. Look forward to seeing new shapes/colours when viewing others in the forums, and when I finally break through a ruby barrier (PPS Sieve at some point.)

This is a farce! Too many bright colors...

Jade #008030

Turquoise #08889C

Sapphire #242480

Emerland #20F040

Double color I find it unnecessary. Why do we need 100500 badges?

For LLR project:
... - 5M - 20M - 100M - 500M
For sieve project:
... - 20M - 100M - 1B - 5B

By adapting my spreadsheet I find it will only take me 300097841 days to get everything Double Emerald. That is about 82,000 years from now.

I will settle for everything Gold which I should do within a decade!

I am glad to see it for those who need it however. I like the artwork.

Thanks all admin who have worked on this.

1 - 2 - 5 - 10 is a nice geometric progression.
Why not to use it for the first 3 badges ? 100 - 200 - 500 sounds better than 10 - 100 - 500, and a first badge at 10K is a lollypop.

If we were creating the whole badge system, we would probably do that. But those badges, and their levels, have been here for years and changing them would cause all sorts of problems.

Is there a bit of filtering-through still to do? I'm jade GFN but have done 37mlln to make sapphire & sapphire for PPS sv yet have done 57mlln to make emerald.

Apart from this I'm enjoying it and getting to know what I've done and am anxious to top-out on PPS sv RAC so I can start systematically working on my next badges :).

Just wanted to stop in and say thank you for these new levels of badges to achieve. While I would still contribute without them, I find it to be a healthy motivator for me with these new added badges. Thank you.

I may be missing something here, but everything looks correct to me. The higher set of thresholds is used for both GFN and PPS-Sieve, so the sapphire badge for GFN will be awarded at 40M (you have 3M to go) and the emerald badge for PPS-Sieve is awarded at 100M (you have 43M to go).

GFN scores are the same as Sieve, not LLR. Read over the lists and it tells you that, so you are on the correct badge.

[edit]Sure, I posted just seconds after Michael.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but the mouse-over text now has commas in it.

A very welcome addition!!

Given the new "Double" badges, I thought it would be interesting to put together a brief listing of the LLR projects and Sieve (including AP26, GFN, & PSA) projects including how many "Double" badges have been achieved (and highest badge achieved). I list the LLR and Sieve projects in separate tables:

LLR Projects
1. PPS - 1 double badge
2. SGS - 0 double badges
3. SoB - 0 double badges
4. 321 - 0 double badges
5. PSP - 0 double badges
6. TRP - 0 double badges
7. Cn - 0 double badges
8. Wn - 0 double badges
9. TPS - 0 double badges



Sieve Projects
1. PPS - 197 double badges *note: We should add 2 more double badges to PPS sieve by tomorrow unless a couple of people stop crunching*
2. PSA - 9 double badges
3. CW - 1 double badges
4. 321 - 0 double badges
5. GFN - 0 double badges
6. PSP - 0 double badges
7. TRP - 0 double badges
8. AP26 - 0 double badges

This is a farce! Too many bright colors...

Jade #008030

Turquoise #08889C

Sapphire #242480

Emerland #20F040

Double color I find it unnecessary. Why do we need 100500 badges?

For LLR project:
... - 5M - 20M - 100M - 500M
For sieve project:
... - 20M - 100M - 1B - 5B

I agree with this post. Don't use the standard Windows color palette for badge colors. Especially turquoise (and imho emerald too) are way too bright and don't fit in.

I proposed additional levels (badges and colours) around 788 days ago ( over 2 years ago) in another thread (I think it was Badges Proposal).
My proposed levels were a quite a bit lower however.
I like that this has been long thought out and not just jumped into, I am happy with what you have done.
Good work.

It may be helpful to display also badge name in mouse-over text.


^^ I second this! As the amount of badges goes from 5 to 18 (!!) it might be helpfull to actually name the badge like:
(PPS sieve) jade, more then 20M credit: 33,654,654
(321) double bronze, more then 100M credit: 123,654,654

This has added a whole new dimension of enjoyment to this project.

I'm going to get my bronzes up to silver, then finish my PPS sieve RAC benchmarking phase, then get GFN up to Sapphire (shouldn't be too difficult via some n=20s) then work my other LLRs up to similar levels to gold 500k.

Or I could hit my first shield (PPS sv) in I think 6 months.

I'm always confused about what project is what and what badge does that correspond to.

Looking on the main account page, the preferences page and at the badges it's difficult to figure out what projects are what and how the badges tie back to each project. I think it's fairly confusing and something could be done about this.

Can we make sure all the projects use the same name and then list the badge abbreviation with it?

Message 64998 - Posted: 6 May 2013 | 14:59:52 UTC - in response to Message 64997.

I'm always confused about what project is what and what badge does that correspond to.

Looking on the main account page, the preferences page and at the badges it's difficult to figure out what projects are what and how the badges tie back to each project. I think it's fairly confusing and something could be done about this.

Can we make sure all the projects use the same name and then list the badge abbreviation with it?


How about if the mouse-over text had that information?

Mr. G, I was just wondering. Since you created and implemented these new cool badges by individual is there any way you could do the same by team? I'm not completely sure that's a feasible option but it would nice to see.

Cheers Rick

Mr. G, I was just wondering. Since you created and implemented these new cool badges by individual is there any way you could do the same by team? I'm not completely sure that's a feasible option but it would nice to see.

Cheers Rick


It's probably possible. It's likely we'll never do it.

A very real danger of doing this is that everyone bands together, in one team, in order to get, say, a team double-emerald badge. That would wreck all the other teams, and that's the last thing we want. I have seen this happen elsewhere in some games, where essentially there's THE team, and a bunch of others who have no chance.

Good work on getting the badges and especially the vastly improved tooltips up, Michael. After the challenge finishes I'll work on getting my GFN badge from Ruby to that disgusting turquoise colour ;)
