I prefer to run projects that have medical/health implications, and "green" research. I know that BOINCstats has information on this type (Earth Science, Biology and so on) because they are given in the Project List.

What I'd like to be able to do is sort and filter projects by this "type", so I can readily see which projects are available in my preferred fields.

While we're about it, a link to project news from the BAM menu would be pretty cool, too.

I completely agree. I would also like to be able to sort/somehow tell if a project is for a nonprofit or a university. I don't mind researching projects, but it would be a lot easier if projects for for-profit companies were marked as such.

For example, Aqua@home would be marked as a project for a for-profit patentholding company, while WCG would be marked as research community/public domain only. D-wave is for profit and I don't by default trust them to publish without patenting.

If I'm donating time, I like to know if I'm donating it to a for-profit company.

Just a thought, if some sort of categorization would be implemented, it would be nice to sort by type of project and what sort of organization runs it.

Also, any post in this forum is going to be a necro. Maybe I should have started a new thread, but this one seemed appropriate even though it was old (and it's still the most recent post).

I will add this in the new webcode (due somewhere this year I hope).
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.

Awesome. Any organization would help. It's good to see a great site/tool get better.
