Yeah, I think a lot of people got discouraged with all the Sprint "MOD_PYTHON" screw-ups from Sebastien. Also, along with Gridcoin still being allowed in it what's the sense if no "real" team can compete for 1st place?

That all goes back to suggestions and complaints from several years back not being addressed. I also don't care for the fact that if a project ends mid year that a team squats on the points they had at the time with no threat of loss. Each month should be waited so that if a project drops off, it loses its value for the year. I also am not sure why they voted Enigma back in since it has been dead for months. Some common sense needs to be applied. Projects should have to consent to be included. TBrada specifically said they do not want more users as he runs the entire project off of a Rasp. Pie device alongside his "other" projects. This clearly implies not needing additional support or attention. Teams also should have to opt in. If they don't have interest in the event, then they shouldn't look like failures due to poor rankings.

Don't worry, even with minimal effort from the [H], we will never look like failures in FB. Bank on that. :cool:

We have moved up to 7th just behind XS. I'm sure that will drastically change when sprints begin.

First FB Sprint is off to a good start...no MODE_PYTHON lol

On the other hand, the initial baseline stats are not there and no updates since.

Time for Sebastien to retire maybe?

I think we have someone crunching for the old name on WCG "[H]ardOCP". The username is King_N[H], not sure who that is here.

He is a very old school former member that long story short was ousted from the team. He now squats on the team name and deliberately makes sure some work is being contributed to justify WCG not transferring the name to us. We also have no way of directly reaching out to him.

Sounds like a dick for doing that.


(read with extreme sarcasm)... So, not much interest in FB this year? Not sure why not, it started off really smooth this year.

Yeah... we lost interest in it. If the sprint isn't overlapping something we may partake but don't hold your breath on it. Most of the active guys are focused on PG challenge this year.

And the biggest for me was the lack of communication on his part about it when it was happening. Couldn't make a simple post to let people know some information.
Two issues for me.

1. Why is the website not automatic? In the sense that, why does it go down if he's not there right at the minute the project is picked?

2. Went on vacation, during sprints, and never told anyone and didn't give anyone else access.

Big red flags

I get that it's a bit of work to run, doesn't excuse the lack of communication though.

Currently FB sprint stat not updating.

I would say PG and SG do a very good job in organizing challenges. I'm sure folks here can figure out 101 reasons why these two groups are able to manage better than the FB sprint. Go figure.

Yeah, this is pretty shitty anymore. He needs to hang it up and hand it over to someone that can handle it.

Also, this projects need to get their shit together as well. I'm getting sick of being their guinea pigs for their software/WU errors. The amount of processing power that was just wasted on Universe is crazy. WTF!
