I believe it's fair to recieve points for work your computer has done for the team. It's not really important, but would certianly serve as
an incentive for people to join and in turn the team gains points. It would keep people crunching when the normally wouldn't.
There are those that would rake in insane amounts of points, but IMO they deserve them and earned them by dedicating their resources to the group
Like I said earlier, they (points) are not really important. Hell, people might not feel the need to post worthless comments in attempts to get
I'm gonna crunch (on the boinc side) regardless if we get points or not, but it sure would IMO up pertisipation (sp?) if people got something out of
it, even if it's a (basicly worthless) board point. I guarentee that all (well, alot) of those names at the bottom with zeros would start turning
Anyway, even if we don't get points, the more ya crunch, the better chance you have of being the one to process the WU that turns out to be a msg
from another world. Chances are slim to none, but there is that chance.
Thats just my take on it
