It is truly frustrating to get 20 cred for 12 hrs job.

@Sid Celery it's quite unfair to blame people who pay attention to credits!

All of us don't get paid
All of us invest money into hardware and electricity to be volunteers
In return I personally want fair estimate of my contribution and bloody tiny *.png badge, is it too much to ask for?

Ideal bages - trophies at Skynet POGS

It would be really nice to have images of different standard structural units of the protein or even whole molecules, it's not bad to have similar to GPUGrid approach, but with different drawing scheme.

Credits granted value became significantly lower than it used to be.

At the same time table with tasks now almost instantly get cleaned, so it's hard to prove a point (I have 24 hrs computing).

The only visible result now (while I was writing this message it was gone form the table too)

873957277 782555353 10 Sep 2016 13:02:18 UTC 11 Sep 2016 17:27:12 UTC Over Success Done 85,467.54 1,032.09 691.97

Others that I did manage to spot had the same CPU time, Credits Claimed slightly over 1,000 and granted around 550-650

before i would expect values between 850-1,000

+1 upload stuck and that's kind of confusing

I agree IPD has relevant information that does mention R@H as a driver for science.

Also I see thay IPD has pretty nice design as well as pictures in articles, why not to use the artist to do some little job for us.

I'm fanatic myself but in order to engage more people in computing we need to have some "action" around the project. Have you ever thought why stupid farming games are so popular in social networks? Why we can't use some basic ideas within a project to make illusion of interaction. There are still a lot of idle computing power, all methods are good.

Bages show appreciation to volunteers.

We can come up with some interesting concept and grading scheme.
