Thanks for the thoughts on this topic, Tin Man. I haven't crunched this much recently
so I don't think I was affected.
TBH, it's not going to affect my participation. I've always thought this project paid more than deserved (hence my high credit I suppose) and I can understand some people are really annoyed at the moment, but I am interested in quantum science and will continue to crunch a little in future. It's very unfortunate they didn't set a lower credit to start with but I can see why they did what they did, I hope they and others learn from this,and I think anyone up in arms about correction needs to take it on the chin and use this opportunity to adjust their world view. BOINC is fundamentally a volunteering opportunity, not a credit race.
I'm cutting down my participation in all projects anyway due to electricity price hikes, but I'll still be dropping in to AQUA from time to time.
