Charity Event 2018 / Who will make a nice logo?

Hello all,

The title says it all: who will make a nice logo for this 10th Charity Event?

Charity Event 2018 / About the race: the how to
« Last post by modesti on 19 November 2017 à 12:26:08 »
:hello: crunchers of the world,

For the 10th edition of the Charity Event, we - the organizers - thought that it might be a good idea to crunch on one of the oldest biomedical projects: Rosetta

How to participate to the Benefit-Crunching-Action on Rosetta (January 14th 2018, 0.01h UTC, to January 27th 2018, 23.59h UTC)

1. First, get as many computers as you can :love:
2. Create an account on the project : this account can be personal or be for a group of users who want to crunch together (see below for this feature).
If you already have an account on the project, go on it and quit your current team (for the time of the Charity Race).
3. Join this team:
Just follow the link and click "join"
4. Now your account is joined to the Charity Team.
5. Crunch!!!!

Now, if several people want to crunch together on a unique account in the Charity Team, it's easy:
1. The group account needs to exist: it's a normal account. Create it if it doesn't already exist.
2. The owner of the account can see both the Account Key and the Weak Account Key.
3. The owner of the account can just communicate the Weak Account Key to the people who want to join the group account.
(See also topic "Group accounts (i.e. SG Booster, [AF] Alliance Francophone, etc.)")

To all crunchers: Enjoy the race ! :bounce:

This thread is for people who would like to join the Charity Event, but who don't want to create their own account on the project. We will give you here the weak account keys as well as links to different topics (in different languages) about how to join a project with a weak account key.

Dieser Thread ist für Leute, die am Charity Event teilnehmen, aber keinen eigenen Account bei dem Projekt eröffnen möchten. Wir geben Euch hier die "weak account keys" sowie Links zu verschiedenen Threads (in verschiedenen Sprachen), in denen erklärt wird, wie man mit einem "weak account key" einem Projekt beitreten kann.

Ce topic est pour les personnes qui voudraient participer au Charity Event, mais qui ne veulent pas créer de compte sur le projet. Nous vous donnerons ici les clés faibles (weak account key) ainsi que des liens vers différents topics (en différentes langues) qui vous expliqueront comment rejoindre un projet avec la clé faible.

Charity Race 2017 / Goodbye till next year & Thank you
« Last post by modesti on 30 January 2017 à 09:50:10 »

This year's Charity Event is over. Thanks to all for participating!

Once again we have achieved big things:
     - We have helped the research of a small life science project by crunching its WUs :love:
     - The Charity Team began the Event on place 77 and climbed up to place 3 in the world ranking  :winner: :yahoo:

You may now go back to your home team or stay in the Charity Team until the last pending WU has been credited. It's up to you.

This forum will stay open for the next few days before closing its doors again till next year.


Hoping to see you again next year. :kookoo:
