How do the projects get ranked on the Project popularity page on the left? I tried to see if it was by Total Credit, RAC, RAC-BS, avg FLOPS, %credit, %RAC, Users, Active Users, and none of them fit the order of projects on that page. Just curious...

There used to be a page where users would vote for their "favorite" projects, using a fixed number of points that you would distribute amongst the projects as you saw fit... However, the last time I looked at that page I think it was on the old website layout, and I can't seem to find it anymore.

Interesting...

Willy? Care to shed some light?

Personally, I would think Active Users would be a good measuring stick...

It is based on the number of hosts attached to a project through BAM! with a resource share higher than zero.
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.

Cool! That works. Maybe that number should be listed in a new column...

Thanks!

Well, that must be why I can't find the ranking page... The process has changed
