But as Michael Millerick pointed out, where's the difference to a challenge?


I don't mean that they're competing, but crunching together. Not a team vs team or indivudual vs individual challenge, just trying to get the goal together.

Hello everyone,

Because I read the thread of an eventuell base 2 "G"CW Sieve, (https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=9714#150883), I want to cite Michael Goetz:
To be clear, there's no need for additional *G*CW sieving at this point (or anywhere in the near future.) The interest is only for base 2 sieving.

And I thought something like "What if all computers attached to PrimeGrid would crunch Cullen-Woodall? Would GCW need a sieve soon then?"

So I propose something like this:
In contrast to a competitive challenge, where each individual and team tries to make the most points, we could make kinda "challenge" where we try to crunch (for example) one million GFN-18 WU's or most possible GCW-Workunits in 5 days. Just with the same idea as a challenge: "To focus on a single subproject".

What do you think about this?

Regards,
MiauiKatze
4) Message boards : General discussion : an idea for speeding up LLR testing (Message 150933)
Posted 57 days ago by Profile MiauiKatze
I'm not an expert, but it sounds logical to me. But I doubt it is really that easy to implement. And does the modulo function really behave like this?

A math expert should look at it. What I wrote are just my 2 cents (or maybe even only one :D )

Best regards,

I think in LLR2, it doesn't matter which run you run, not mattering if _0 or _1, because the previous one must be aborted, due to the automatic error correction.

So this "suppressed showing before completing" became useless, at least for LLR2 projects (It's what I am thinking...). It would be interesting if this "suppresion" could be deleted?

If I'm understanding right, there are 15 tasks in progress and 0 waiting,
does that mean, that after these 15 WUs were completed successfully, the project will be terminated completely?

I'm a bit sad about that, becuase the tasks had a very comfortable length!

Kind of interesting would be a badge, which goes to the current world record holder. And maybe a badge if you had the badge once...

So not a fix badge, but kind of "travelling" badge...


That probably won't happen while my lungs draw breath. I'm very much against awards that get taken away from users.


Ok, I haven't seen that this way...
You are completely right!

There is the story, that in the TdP, one aborted all tasks which were fininshed by another one before, so he is the initial finder of eventual primes. To avoid that, the project administrators started to hide the result until the workunit has a defined result.

I don't know if this is true, but in my Team's forum, this was mentioned the way described. Please correct me if this is wrong.

Best regard,

I think you can't.

My theory is, that the workunits get deleted ("purged") if they aren't needed anymore. What isn't saved on the server, can't be shown to you. And why would you look at workunits which weren't prime? :D

If i'm wrong, please correct me. I'm not an admin, it's just a theory.
