Too Costly to Run the New WUs
Posted 12 Apr 2017 by GLeeM
These new WUs only take 1 minute to finish, but use same up/download bandwidth and are only worth 0.5 points.
I would get about 30 points for 50 MB bandwidth. I aborted the remaining WUs.
We do this as volunteers, if I ran your project I could only run for a few days per month before using up my allotted bandwidth usage.
If you want to get and keep more volunteers you need to be careful of our resources.
If you truly believe in your research and want to get it done fast you need lots of volunteers. To get them you need to increase points given. If you want to go slow and make it take years longer than necessary, then continue as you are doing.
