    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.
