Hello,

If it isn't already in the works, I would suggest implementing badges (not just the default BOINC badges). This is a great way to attract users! (Like me :) )

Thks

I second that. Badges would be an awesome boost!

I wouldn't mind badges but not at the rate WCG pushes them out!

While I wholeheartedly agree (the BOINC project I run has had badges for many years, and they absolutely, positively are a significant factor in bringing in new users and keeping them around), these days it seems like CPDN suffers from a lack of work rather than a lack of users. I don't think badges will help with that problem!
