Why should it be compared to other projects? There hasn't been cross project parity for years - if there ever was. CSG pays very high credits and Seti pays very low credits. BitCoin Utopia totally destroyed the credit system so what difference does it make?

The only measure of credits is how you do versus how others do on a single project. And that's only if you feel you are in competition with the other users on a project. Personally I don't care, I'd rather concentrate on WuProp hours.

As I said earlier, it is a matter of opinion and your opinion is as valid as anyone else's opinion. I'm sure the credits will be going down on the next series. I've met my goal on WuProp so I don't care :)

If you feel the project is paying too highly and it offends your principles, you can always choose to run something else.....

My opinion on the matter, obviously my opinion only.
BOINC is a competition, whether that be individual, team etc the main competition is between projects for community resources.

Some projects have very loyal fan base and can do what they want.

Other projects attract users resources by offering higher credit, or badges, or interesting science, or a very proactive admin presence on their forum, or a combination.

In this case the project offers decent credit and a very good admin who is active on his forum and willing to respond to posts. For that reason I run the project at my expense.

Other projects offer none of these, run the base set up server, offer credit screw etc. These projects I will run until I have acheived my personal goals then I leave. That's my choice as it's my equipment, power etc.
