Default Increased Score For DC/Certification Work

My one line suggestion: give extra credit for DC/Certification work.

Some people are motivated by the reward money gained by this project, others the high-score board, and others by various other factors not important to this post.

Over the years there have been various ideas for adjusting credit. But, time and again, the answer has been to keep credit tied to a calculated amount of work done. Rather than adjusting credit, it would be better to have all requests for LL tests given LL-DC work. The machines asking for LL generally don't have the most up to date software and are likely slower machines. Those trying to do LL-FTC are often running so slowly that they drop down a couple of categories
