I think other teams are out-producing us and attracting more crunchers than we do. Looking at weekly output, there are more than 30+ teams ahead of us.

Over the past 3 years, we are doing well against our prior years.

The covid-19 adds interest in FAH which include participation from those with deep pockets/large organizations (eg. Nvidia Corp, AWSFolds, Cern & LHC) where some of them will overtake us in the next few months.

This is good for FAH without saying.

Looks like [H] has dropped out of the top 10 teams.

Our production is on a decline too. Has interest petered out or is it just part of the Summer cycle of things?
I just joined this spring, but I’m sitting out for summer. It’s hot enough already. Sad to see it fall, but it’s impressive it stayed as long as it had. Some of the others have full fledged data centers on board...and a website still. ;)

I was just noticing the team's numbers were on a downward trend again. Just wondered if the excitement had faded or if it was a planned down time for many. I know I cut a lot of my DC out for the Summer. But I typically ramp back up when I stop fearing sunburns...

I sold the 1080, and won't be running my other 1070 until I get a power supply for another machine. GTA online random crashes when I have 2 cards for whatever reason. Even with it not folding while its running:/

I think its a combination of both Summer, and the waning of interest in Covid. All the teams are seeing something similar

I don't think its a waning interest in covid distributing work with the normal crowd (or even new crowd of DC participants), though I do agree about the summer as there seems to be seasonal participation historically. I think the other part is the general WU availability issues with F@H in general. The big corporate sponsors (Nvidia, AWS, etc) are eating up any remaining available GPU WUs, and have been for a while, and if you're in it for the points / team competitions, there isn't any motivation to run F@H CPU slots. Without having done any serious analysis, it seems like Rosetta@Home picked up a huge number of users when F@H couldn't stay stable. Very recently, Rosetta ran out of work and a bunch of people reallocated to open pandemics.

My guess is that the subset of people who wanted to participate signed up for F@H. When that didn't work well, a subset of those moved to supporting boinc projects, and then never moved their gear back to F@H. I would be one of those people - I quit running F@H, Seti, GPU Grid, etc in 2017. With covid I fired up the systems again and when it didn't work well I moved to other projects. Some of the people I convinced to join followed me when I added Rosetta and then Open Pandemics.
