 2022-03-17, 22:58 #12 EdH     "Ed Hall" Dec 2009 Adirondack Mtns 2×5×7×73 Posts My initial expectations were for those who already were working sequences, but were not involved in this sub-project and would like some easier runs that would actually end. I think everyone likes to see a sequence they're working on terminate. But, I would like to make sure we do cover someone who may be starting out. I like the latest suggestions from RichD, as well, although I wonder about the reservation issue. Some of us can terminate these smaller sequences rather quickly, but some of our group may take a bit longer starting from the larger 13x terms and that may well include newcomers if we do attract them. As to the potential newcomers, I think we should just drive toward our goals and accept and assist if any do appear. we may find all the interested parties are already participating. As to adding and removing from the first post, that sounds like a good idea, but should they be flagged elsewhere, in case they aren't finished quickly? And, yes, I would welcome all the help in keeping it updated. Maybe a compromise would be to once in a while add a post to the main thread with a list of the ones we've flagged over here. Not necessarily a reservation, but that those sequences are being worked. I just don't know how that would work out. Although we haven't actually come up with the final operations, let's go ahead and add/remove sequences and start letting them be worked, by acknowledging Oliver's request and inviting more members to join. I will remove his requested sequences from the first post. Sound good, so far? Last fiddled with by EdH on 2022-03-18 at 02:30 Reason: gramre

Let's work like that, it should be fine !
Will you report all new completed sequences to me on the main project thread or will there be information here on this thread that will not be on the main Thread ?

This will have to be figured out. The best route would probably be having them reserved in the main thread. Then, when they are shown terminated via your update scripts, you can attribute the credit. The reservation post would also be available to anyone checking that thread for reservations. If someone reserves and immediate terminates sequences, it shouldn't really matter, since your scripts will pick that up and credit can still be awarded in the next update.

Does the above work for everyone?

 2022-03-18, 19:27 #16 RichD     Sep 2008 Kansas EB116 Posts I'm thinking to keep it simple. What has been done on the first go around seems to work OK. Oliver grabbed a handful of sequences and posted the terminations in the main thread. If it effects the main table, put it in the main thread. These short reservations don't need posting -- reserving -- flagging -- completing -- removing -- updating. KISS More thoughts welcome.

KISS stands for - Keep It Simple Stupid

By no means am I referring to anyone here as stupid. That is why I added the smiley to the end.

It is certain that a French person will understand something else if you write "KISS" !
I didn't know this other meaning of this acronym !

That will keep the thread current and visible as new. Simply editing the first post won't do either. If you'd just like to add a post, that's fine and I'll try to keep up. For those that can, feel free to edit the first post as well, but don't feel obligated.
