Hello RKN,

BOINC Games (boincgames.com) is a new challenge site in the works for BOINC competitions. The site is relatively new, but I invite you and your team to join to help iron out bugs before the new year (2023).

The competition requires all participating members to register on the site where they will have to validate their CPID. Validating the CPID is easy to do. Here is a nice guide that shows you what to do.

If you find any issues or problems with the site then please reach out to me.

Each participant is required to register first in order to participate in BOINC games. Registration is simple:1. Visit the registration site:https://www.boincgames.com/register.php2. Enter your BOINC Games personal account information: username, email, password and CPID The CPID (Cross Project

To give my email AND my password, means to give full access on my account. I think my email and CPID would be enough, like for GridCoin. But full access ? Why ?

Sorry, i don't trust Boincgames until they explain why they need this account information. Formular Boinc never need such information...
LG,
Frank

You can register with whatever email and password you want on the site boincgames.com. The email and password do NOT have to match your BOINC projects email or password (although keeping the email the same would probably be better to help you, the user, remember the login)

The CPID is the only thing boincgames.com needs.

You need to register an account, so whatever email and password you use you have to remember it so you can login to the site boincgames.com. Your control panel area will have a unique name for you to confirm your CPID. You'll need to do this in order for your credits to count on boincgames.com. It's also the login for the forums on that site as well.

What about privacy or term conditions?

Nothing? :uhoh:

I haven't had a chance to work on those pages yet, but you can find them here:

https://www.boincgames.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=privacy
https://www.boincgames.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=terms

The only data BOINC Games pulls is data from the stats export file at the different projects. It uses your CPID to only pull users who register so only their points count.

Your username, password and email can be whatever you want it to be on the site. It does not effect anything on the stats.

Thanks for pointing out the typo. Will get that resolved soon.

Who is running the competition? Any person/team/... behind BoincGames?
Is there any reason why not all team members are participating by default?

Thx...

boincgames.com is ran and hosted by me, a member of TeAm AnandTech. It was funded by most of my teammates TeAm AnandTech last year. I paid a company to build the site for me. This is the first "trial run" so to speak of the competition so I can get any issues or problems fixed that may happen. So if you or anyone finds anything broken please reach out to me. I try to check your forums (this thread) frequently to answer any questions you may have. However, as I reach out to other teams I may not get to here quickly. We have a discord server and the forums on boincgames.com (if you are registered) that I check multiple times a day.
  • Registration is required to prevent team hopping during competitions.
  • It also serves to establish participating by not only the team as a whole, but by their individual members. If a team member doesn't want to participate, but the team does, then they do not have to sign up for it.
  • Your email will serve as a notification method so you can be notified, via email, when a Sprint starts and what project the Sprint is. Therefore, the email does not have to be the email you use for anything personal, including but not limited to the email you use to sign up for BOINC projects. However, I do encourage you to use an email you check frequently so you can get notified when a Sprint starts and what it is. It also serves as a way to reset your password if you forget it.
In the future I will have the ability for individuals to opt out of participating at any time.

I also plan to include individual stats during Sprints.

What is the exact reason for setting this up?
So far, there is/was Formula BOINC which seems quite similar to BOINC Games - isn't this kind of redundant or is this sort of a response to the issues reported for Formula BOINC, lately?

That is basically what this is. Formula-BOINC is on it way out it seems so we (Team AnandTech) started putting together a similar site. This was before the "new" methods that FB now has. We have been working on this site for over a year now.
This is the first year (starting Jan 1 of this year) that we are running a trial run in hopes that nothing major is broken so we'll have a full year with a full team list starting next year.
