Looking at my accounts page for the first time in a while, and low and behold, there was this attractive badge! More coming (you know, based on credits attained kind)?

Congratulations, you're the first to comment on badges appearing !
The Alpha/Beta badges were activated over two weeks ago.
Running the script for the Alpha/Beta badges is a one time thing.

The script for credit (and RAC) badges have been ready for quite a while but it needs Michael to find time to set them running.
The Islands / Days Active badge allocation has a problem to overcome and is still under consideration.

Thanks for the reply, PDW. I'm assuming you're the one that has been working on these? If so, my thanks. It's fun to get badges :)! (P.S. - I hope exporting is included in the to-do list for Michael)

I have been doing the scripts but Michael, who is busy, has control over when they are run.
The Alpha/Beta badges are already being shown at Free-DC so not aware Michael needs to be doing anything extra for that.

Message 878 - Posted: 30 Mar 2019, 10:29:00 UTC - in response to Message 877.  

I ran the RAC script manually last night and again this morning, there are some permission problems that are stopping the scripts running automatically as they would normally as well as preventing other default Boinc behaviour.

I could run the credit badge script manually too but I expect complaints would start to be posted by volunteers asking why they haven't been given their most recent badge if the script is still not being run automatically on a regular basis.

Michael's time is taken up with constantly having to monitor and check, change and re-adjust the core code that is running 24/7. It's not quite the same as having 100Gb of data to process running a standard app and wait for all the results to come back in whilst monitoring the scheduler/feeder/backups/db purging/etc to make sure the system is ticking over as it should. He is getting help from someone developing a GPU app which also requires his input. A GPU app sounds great and will get a lot more work done but someone is going to have monitor and check all that as well !

I have limited access, rightly so, my linux skills are not good and I don't know that I trust myself not to mess things up if I had more access. This morning I typed LS into my console not realising CAPS LOCK was on and got this response:

The program 'LS' is currently not installed. To run 'LS' please ask your administrator to install the package 'sl'

I have no idea what 'sl' is or why typing LS would be the command for running the sl package !

Part of the initial delay in getting the badges done was that I didn't feel comfortable with limited linux skills writing PHP scripts for the first time on the production server. It wasn't until just before Christmas that I set up my own project server at home to play with to work on the badges. I had some permission issues then myself, I think it was either scheduling or sending the work out, but to get it working I could just grant full access safe in the knowledge it was all behind closed doors and not a production server.

PHP was something else. I'd never heard of a FOREACH command, I thought it was just a lazy way of doing a FOR loop without having to specify steps of 1. What a naive simpleton I was, this link gives a more 'detailed' explanation: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10057671/how-does-php-foreach-actually-work.

I still need to resolve the Active/Islands badges but Michael has put something in place that should let me do that.

Well PDW, I'm not pushing :). I really appreciate the time you're committing to this effort. Someday is good enough :).

They are being exported in the stats files but I guess Bok needs to grab the image files for them to be displayed at Free-DC.

Are there cut off dates for joining the Project for Alpha and Beta status ?

And what qualifies a user for the TEAM badge ?

Thanks

Hi Bill,

Yes, there are cut off dates to determine those who contributed during the Alpha/Beta status of the project.

Anyone in the Boinc database before 27th June 2018 will be Alpha & Beta badge holders
Anyone registered from 27th June to midnight 25th July is Beta only
Anyone registered from 26th July has neither badge
The only other proviso was that their credit level was above 0.

The DHE Team badge is awarded to project staff including volunteers who have put extra effort in to help the project as determined by the Admin.

Regards,
PDW

When or how often are the Badges Updated?

The badge script is meant to be running once a day at the moment but isn't.
I had suggested once an hour but Michael is monitoring the server for latency issues mentioned elsewhere on the forum and wants to start off slowly. Hopefully the frequency can be increased.

For the moment I have run the script manually to grant you your outstanding badge.
I will email Michael to get it going regularly as I don't have permission to do that.

Thanks for alerting us to the problem.

Thanks for the update.
I would say once a day or even every other day is fine for updating.
Even once or twice a Week would be good as well.
