Please.....could someone inform Uli at SETI Main that I would like to order a qty of 2 shirts in XL size.

Trying to post on SETI Main site and get the following error.

In order to create a new thread in Number crunching you must have a certain amount of credit. This is to prevent and protect against abuse of the system.

So I guess that.......
Total credit 79,016,596 on SETI Main
Does not count anymore.

Thanks for the help

I think it is actually based on RAC instead.

We should have Richard submit a ticket for that little problem.

Technically, the ability to post requires the user account be above minimums for *both* total credit and RAC. But the S@H project setting for minimum total credit is either zero or very low, so it's the minimum RAC which controls (and it is set to require 1.0 or greater RAC).

It would be possible to change the BOINC forum code to allow posting if *either* setting were above minimum, but that would mean projects would have to revise their forum settings. If they wanted only RAC to control they'd need to set a huge minimum for total credit or vice versa.

;) Next time just send me a PM Geek. And to be clear on this, it is only at the Discussion stage.
Since the minimum order is 144, we are half way there.
