Problem with change of user name and bonus points

Postby Sortis1337 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 8:53 pm

Hello everyone,

I recently changed my team and my username and got a new passkey. I folded 3 WUs since and did not receive bonus points for any of them.

I rechecked the key after I got no bonus on the first two WUs. Still, the problem remains.

Can you help me?

Here is the log from the 3rd WU, stating bonus points that I did not receive. You'll find my folding name and team number there.

Code: Select all

Welcome to teh folding support forum.

From the Points FAQ -

What are the qualifications for the QRB?

The bonus is applied for users who use a passkey, have successfully returned at least 10 bonus-eligible WUs, have successfully returned 80% or more of assigned WUs, and returned the unit before its Timeout (formerly Preferred Deadline). Bonus points do not apply to partial returns.

So to receive the QRB you need to finsih another 7 WU's since you changed both your username and passkey. That applies to any username and passkey pairing. Even if you had just changed the username and used your previous passkey, 10 WU's would have needed to be returned before again getting the bonus.

Hello Joe,

thank you very much! I completely forgot that there were any restrictions on bonus points. Thanks for the reminder.
Happy folding!
