Belatedly realised the impact scale of the opt-in for data exports: when it kicked in my rank went from 286th to 109th.

Only 38% had opted in. The stats are pretty meaningless now.

Yep,

BOINCSTATS only 65 members with 44 active

Einstein only 1344 members with 136 active.

That tells a story now doesn't it.

Yes I noticed I'm 87th in the world for Einstein@Home now lol  ROFL

The flip side is, I still see our team do well because this would have affected all teams and we have a pretttty dedicated team as it is :)

Agreed it's a ridiculous situation. Thumb Down

I have done all that I can at the moment.  I have sent an email using an old email list that I think had Einstein members on it.  I have placed a message on our Facebook page and on this forum.  There is a feature on the Einstein web site that allows me to send an email to all members that have ticked the box to receive emails but the feature does not work and the admins have advised that it will not be fixed any time soon.

The Team will have to crunch on and hope that other Teams have the same level of member participation or non participation ?
