I asked to Boinc forum to insert TN-Grid in the project list of Boinc Manager.
This is the answer from David Anderson:

To have the project listed, the project admins need to contact me;
see the bottom of https://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php


Please, someone can contact David??

I think it would improve visibility of the project so yes, it's good idea to add project to the list.

I definitely agree!!
The vast majority of Bonic users choose a project from that list.

We (I mean the project team) are discussing about this. The main issue is that having a lot more users may have a strong impact on the server.

And wouldn't we be happier if we double computing capacity?

With current experiment, we are talking about years...

I understand there is a limit, but this is as easy to deal with by controling how many tasks we send.

Now, we have always over 6K "ready" tasks...

At this pace whe are talking :
87554 - 11587= 75967 / 26= 2921 days /365= 8 years

I think more users are needed
Maybe upgrading the WU generator poperly

We are confident that your team will figure the best solution for the project
Keep crunching :)

I spoke with Valter some times ago.
He (and other project guys) is a little bit scared about insert tn-grid in boinc manager list, 'cause he think that a too much computational power is not so good. They need time to create queues, collect results, etc, so they don't want an "empty queue" project...

However they need to take into account the growing of high count core desktop in the next few years.
In my opinion a work generator upgrade is a crucial factor

Just bumping this thread along as there has been no update regarding adding TN-Grid to BOINC Manager.

Also, why is the project not accepting any new participants? You would get more data processed if you opened up to more users.

1 - IIRC, because such a move would increase the number of participants by far too much for the server to handle.

2 - The project is accepting more participants. They just need to use the invitation code available on the homepage.
