I see we are registered for this event that starts tomorrow (September 9th) yet I have not seen any forum threads about it. Are we, as a team, still going to participate?
 
I been running WCG recently for badge purposes so I will be running it any way.

    I had posted earlier to the forum and the team joined in. I'm almost ready to start. The wcg site is experiencing technical difficulties right now though.

    Totally forgot about this.  Interesting rules...I'll switch over to WCG in a bit.

    Nope, afraid we don't qualify. We are associated with a company (EVGA).

    1. Not to be a team affiliated with a company, association, foundation, government agency, administration, university, college or school.

    I do not understand this?
    EVGA gives our team Zero Support if you are talking about what is in the link below.
    They would not even provide a Private Area on the Forums if you recall that we did ask for a year or two ago.

    Three conditions must be fulfilled in order to be eligible for the THOR Challenge Pure:
    1- Not to be a team affiliated with a company, association, foundation, government agency, administration, university, college or school.
    2- Not to be a team rewarding the distributed computing of its volunteers financially.
    3- Have at least participated in the first week of the THOR Challenge (September 09 to September 15).
     
    Asking them
    https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,41764_offset,80#614461
     
     
    But if so true then pointless to even have this event as most if not all teams have part of their names based on a Product or Company or Country.

    They would need to eliminate over half the teams. Thanks for posting over there as I had been wondering about this.  I did too.

    Their posts are confusing. The list of 58 accented teans to the Thor Pure challenge doesn't list us, but we are in the stats listing. I added a few cores on my main rig.

    I see now that we are ineligible for the 5th and final week (the PURE challenge part). We are good up through the 4th week. 2nd 3rd and 4th weeks are invitation only so team captains need to watch fir emails on Monday.

    Before declaring each WCG team eligible or not, our selection committee studied each team on a case-by-case basis. By affiliate, we mean any exogenous means to a team that would allow it to recruit without using its own means. The forum of your team is hosted by the website and online store of the EVGA company and this is a form of affiliation that gives you visibility that can not afford other teams without affiliation. This is why we have created two levels of challenge this year: the THOR Challenge accessible to all teams without any distinction and the THOR Challenge Pure for "@home" teams.

    Sounds reasonable. Bit silly to have effectively 2 winners, 1 for regular contest and 1 for pure contest. I still want to participate in it. Be interesting if we can keep in the running for all the weeks we're eligible for.

    Then they should have 3 Winners, One with Coin, One without Coin and then their Pure One.
    The Pure One makes like the rest of us are Non-Pure or trash.
    I Crunch WGC with or without Simi-Team Events anyway so makes no difference in the end for me.

    Moved up to 15th place, but man is the gap somewhat large. Hope there aren't any bunkers skewing things at the final stretch.

    Looks like we nailed the Zika project as it's done submitting tasks apart from some cleanup.
    Good job everyone.

    Personally, I'll probably run PG Oktoberfest (AP27) on GPU only, and then concurrently run WCG on CPUs.

    If it is cool enough, running CPU and GPU at the same time gets to hot in the house and the Air runs nonstop 24x7
    I do this in the Late Fall and Winter when I use my computers for heaters to heat the house
