BT 1.63 Project- and Team-ranking are still ?/? for some projects
« on: September 03, 2014, 07:54:40 pm »
I'm running BOINC 7.2.42 and BT 1.63. With the default settings of BT I see only ?/? at the columns  "Project rank" and "Team rank"
As explained in the help for the Expert settings for BT, I need to fill in my CPID by hand, because only with BOINC 7.4.13 and newer the projects will provide the CPID.
Doing so still gives ?/? at (at least) the following projects:
 - boincsimap at http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap/
 - Mindmodeling@Beta at http://mindmodeling.org/
 - LHC@Home 1.0 at http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/

All these projects have changed their url during the last year or so. As earlier discussed with Fred we concluded that the old url for these projects was used by BT. I kind of expected that this was fixed in BT 1.63, but apparently not?

What you can do is report it on the statistics site

Look here: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\BoincTasks\stats

There is an xml file cpid_xxxxx

Look up the project and report a wrong url here: http://boinc.netsoft-online.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewforum.php?2

The project url should match to what you find in BoincTasks Projects -> Properties "Master URL"

hmm, all stat sites don't show ?/? for the projects I mentioned, so they must be using something else. Probably something like the "Master URL"-Property.
Can't BT also use this Property?

The problem the stats site uses a perfectly valid, sometimes older url.
So I added a xml file that holds the master url and the actual url used by the stats site.

In 1.64 the ?? should be gone.

Confirmed, thanks for the quick fix!
