1) Message boards : Number crunching : New PrimeGrid Policy - Monetization of BOINC credit (Message 122413)

Do you have proof that an account is cheating or are you just gossiping?

I said "managed to boost", you can read again what I wrote, if you don't understand is your problem, maybe it's just a software or hardware error, I didn't accuse anyone of cheating.

Gridcoin isnt Boinc? Projects assign credit, not Gridcoin. Gridcoin just takes your RAC compares it to the rest of the team's total RAC and gives you a percentage of the project's magnitude for that project.

The only power Gridcoin has in this manner is blacklisting/greylisting a project and communicate with the devs to warn them that there's a problem with their project.

Manipulating credit does affect your RAC and therefore affects your magnitude and your GRC reward.

Manipulation of credits, indeed, does take place. It's not just collatz.

I mentioned it on Perfect Cuboid in yoyo@home, when using ubuntu boosted credit of atom z3735 to Xeon e5560 bug looks like was just ignored by gridcoin community, yoyo admin "fixed" it by limiting maximum credit (using double check didn't help, all your needed was your wingman running ubuntu too).

Another example is when someone managed to boost his Celeron G1620 (2 threads) RAC to 26000 (~4x Xeon(R) CPU E7- 4870 @ 2.40GHz (80 threads)) in Rosetta@home, won't post link to his profile here, but you can find him in top participants if you want, he crunches for biblepay.
