1) Message boards : General discussion : Spam in here? Deleted but still emailing me. (Message 158037)

I assume the email notification is an automatic almost instantaneous process, whereas prompt spam removal is done manually by a forum moderator.

! All gold.

Trinidad James approves.

If you wish to run single threaded, a simply way is in your PrimeGrid Preferences for the selected venue, change the "Multi-threading: Max # of threads for each task" option to be "1". This forces single thread per task.

Also ensure SGS is selected as the subproject to be ran by that profile.

6) Message boards : Sophie Germain Prime Search : MT Question (Message 149754)
Posted 791 days ago by awpollak
The question is do you want to be the finder or the dc'er? SGS does not take advantage of the new LLR I don't think (please correct me if I am wrong) so by running them faster your chance of being the finder seems to me to improve? Probably wrong on this as well but finding primes is a luck of the draw anyway.


Correct, SGS does not (yet?) take advantage of the fast double checking LLR2. There are two ways to see the list of projects using LLR2: first the home page sub-project list with the superscript "F", and second this thread

Isobel, FYI Enigma@home has been dormant for quite some time; no surprise you aren't getting new tasks for that project. Follow Rytis' instructions for Event Log as it relates to new PrimeGrid tasks.

Jim, It is the validation task that is significantly shorter thanks to LLR2 (hence "fast" Double Check) than the old method of running each full WU twice, see
9) Message boards : 321 Prime Search : 321 Sieve is being SUSPENDED (Message 144698)

So did it just stop as of a couple minutes ago?
Because my computer has no tasks going.

Is it finished?

Right now there are 0 waiting to be sent, 32.3k in progress and falling as results are returned. If you get new WUs at this point, I believe it would be from time-outs, invalids, or aborts.
10) Message boards : Project Staging Area : PRPNet Help (Message 144484)

Also do pages work on this message board for you?

This project's message board does not utilize pagination. Instead, on long threads there is a user preference option to show only the first message and the most recent X messages, with the prior ones collapsed by default. See Your Account -> Community Preferences -> "How to Sort"
