Hey Everyone,

There was an unplanned power outage that caused MindModeling.org to go offline for a few days.

We are working to bring everything back online as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and we hope to have everything back up and running soon.

Best,

Brandon

The stats for TeAm AnandTech are not tallied up correctly, it appears.

Team points update for 2018-10-10: +0 points, and 2018-10-09: +5,780 points. This is shown by both free-dc and boincstats. Their current total points of TeAm Anandtech, 3,980,049, are the same as those seen on the team page at mm.org right now.

Yet if I add up the team's individual user points at free-dc, I get for 2018-10-10: +52,360 points, and 2018-10-09: +173,330 points (+225,690 in total).

Adding the team's individual user points at boincstats, I get for 2018-10-10: +247,696 points, and 2018-10-09: +20,357 points (+268,053 in total).

Is this a normal glitch which will correct itself over time, or is something not working right anymore since the outage?

(I spot-checked another team, and this had less than 1 ‰ difference between team points and the sum of user points.)

Just adding to this.

The credits for UK Boinc Team are also 'missing' from Boincstats and FreeDC at least (I haven't checked others)

0 points reported on the 10th although individual team members contributions from Boincstats add to 96,113 and 3,089 reported on the 9th although individual members tally 11,422.

Thanks for letting me know about the issue.

There is an issue with the team database that needs to be worked out, due to the power outage.

As soon as we have a fix implemented I will let you know.

Credit distribution will be fixed once this is taken care of.

Best,

Brandon

We appreciate you looking into this team stats problem Brandon.

I found another team (BOINCstats) that seems to have the same issue.

Best,
Mark

Are we taking time out to fix things? I see no jobs or tasks suddenly.

Hi Brandon,

I know that the science is the most important factor to those of us who contribute computer time to this project, but team stats are also important to us. Every year boinc teams compete against each other and stats are tracked at the Formula Boinc site. Team Anandtech was number one in points for the MindModeling project until a few days ago because our team stats have not been exported while most other teams do not have this issue.

This is the primary reason why we are requesting that this problem be fised.

Here's a link to the forumula Boinc site:

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for not responding sooner. I have been out of the office the past few days due to illness.

When I return fixing this issue will be a top priority to get stats back in order for everyone.

Best,

Brandon

To some, points are more important than the results from the project.

They need more computers then!! Th problem is the people worried about stats aren't worried that the project, for the 2nd time in a week, has zero tasks to send out! I guess they only care about their past stats and not their future ones because as of right now there are NO future ones!! I would love to bring more pc's over here but with the project not having enough work I would always be running my backup projects, as would everyone else.

Badges and credits for users and teams are indeed strong motivators to many volunteers. This is what they were invented for, I guess.

@Brandon, thank you for keeping us informed. Get well.
