I'm really happy to see that BoincStat/BAM already (re-)listed this project!! :-)

Hi Gunnar,

It looks like the server used 42200 to create the tasks as default. I deprecated it immediately so the server would not create many tasks. Can you try resetting the project and seeing if the problem persists?

Hi Maurice,

Yes. I think resetting the project would be the most convenient solution.

What is the correct URL for this project? Both of these seem to work, and both access the same server and database.

http://www.vdwnumbers.org/
http://www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/

Hi Michael,

Both are correct. Vdwnumbers.org defaults to showing information for the vdwnumbers project. Just "vdwnumbers.org" is what I'd say is standard.

http://www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/ is the URL that's in my old records and more importantly BOINC Stats and therefor his account manager (BAM!) has revived the project and uses that URL to attach hosts to Van Der Waerden Numbers.

To avoid confusion, consider making http://www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/ the officially sanctioned URL to attach to Van Der Waerden Numbers.

Also, the index page instructions state
To participate, Download and run BOINC, and add Project 'vdwnumbers.org'.

Because the project is not specifically available through Berkeley's BOINC Manager yet, the instructions should be changed to something like
To participate, Download and run BOINC, and add Project URL: http://www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/
until it is available through BOINC Manager.

EDIT: Also note that there is a new predicament when attaching to Van Der Waerden Numbers through BAM!

Okay but today when I tried to sign into vdwnumbers.org it said I did not have an account but I DO have an account at www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/ that means BOTH can't be correct as they are different websites. Additionally when I go to wuprop and look at the hours I've put in for www.vdwnumbers.org/vdwnumbers/ it shows this:

vdwnumbers.org: Van Der Waerden Numbers Van Der Waerden Numbers 865.92

Now I JUST got signed into www.vdwnumbers.org today so the numbers haven't shown up in wuprop yet but I DO have credits here on the website:

Total credit 390
Recent average credit 38.50

mikey and Contact,

I'm not sure what's causing this. I'll sort it out and report back.

I just checked again on wuprop, I realize it's a stats site and not user your purview, and now see this:

vdwnumbers.org: Van Der Waerden Numbers Van Der Waerden Numbers 871.32

That is more than my post earlier so maybe it really doesn't matter or at least wuprop considers them the same place for it's numbers. I have not checked any other stats site but am happy it's working and you are back!!!
