OK, the EVGA Bucks have ended. But why merge the forums? While Crunching and Folding are both distributed computing they are not the same thing and mixing the forums is just going to lead to confusion. So, why do it? Is this the first step of EVGA getting rid of the teams after all these years?

    Jacob reorganized the Forums this morning, so you would have to ask him.  However, I wouldn't look too deeply into ulterior motives when it comes to the way he tries to condense sections.

    I agree with OP [not that my opinion matters] . The folding crunching should be separate. Also where did the WTB section go?  I hope this isn't permanent.... Strange combos.

    I went to check a post I have in the folding section only to find the merge.Not a fan of it at all. I for see much confusion going to happen. I have been a member here for a long time but stepped away for a good bit. I'm back and have switched to folding here. Now With the change it will be hard to keep up with. Don't change things that are not broken.

    The crunching section now is gone?

    Lol, it's back.  I think it got hidden due to a wild permissions issue appearing.

    What'd I miss?
    Been a little distracted lately..
    (been trying to upload a couple of pix and they are taking...4EvER...NeveR...)
    Gave up trying..
    Think this probably relates to the Unmerging of what wasn't broken in the first place..
    No wonder they couldn't keep track of the bux...
    But
    I know nothing!
    Sorry but I will explain later...if I can ever upload a picture again...

    Did that with another "free" site and ended up losing all my pix
    I have a huge bandage on my right shoulder(new pacemaker)
    and my RMA'd Asus video card got sat on by Fedex...sent pictures off to Asus and refused to accept it
    Later buddy
     
    Edit...Matrix issue could be the latest Windows 10 update that took all night to not complete..
    Had to restart the laptop about 4 or 5 times to get it to complete..

    I don't keep pics that I need there, just the ones I wish to share here. Wouldn't bother me if the pics were lost because I have them on my pc already.

    The ones I lost were images from the internet or on one of various harddrives I have/had over the years..
    Probably still have allot of the images just can't be bothered to look for them.
    Not much fun right now..
    Try it later..
    Thx Buddy

    When I get some time I will update "http://forums.evga.com/CrunchingEVGA-f79.aspx" to "https://forums.evga.com/CrunchingEVGA-f121.aspx" on all our BOINC Sites listed under our team.
    It now goes to https://forums.evga.com/ and not to the Crunching@EVGA area of the Forums.
