Hello!

Well, I ran a few of the new 10^21 WUs on CPU also meanwhile, but found a little runtime discrepancy now.
While the first tasks were finished in a bit more than an hour (like this or this, I just finished one which took more than two days!
Yet both tasks got the same credit! How is this?
Also, I have more than one another task which is already running over 6 hours, looks like they will also take a lot of time... doesn't it need a credit adjustment then?

As I already suggested making the levels the tenth of it so that the Bronze levels start at 100k would be something more reasonable from my POV.
Since the big gold star is at 1 million then you may introduce more badges in the higher - there could be so much more because other projects use Amethyst, Saphir etc.
I understand if you want to keep them by the amount because sometimes too much badges are also unattractive but a few more wouldn't kill it I guess. ;-)
If you're out of options with colours and motives I could help with that, I made badges for CSG some years ago.

Edit:
I thought about the levels if you want to keep the badge amount, how about this:
100k - 500k - 1m - 25m - 50m - 100m - 250m - 500m - 1b

I agree with Conan here. Benn here since start of the project and stopped at a time I reached the 200 Amic pairs badge and have yet to achieve a credit badge. Missed the release of the GPU-app though...

The first badge is given for 1,000,000 total credit,
Well, I have to say that's a ridiculously high credit level for the lowest credit badge. Compare it with all the other projects - which also have GPU apps (Asteroids, PrimeGrid no name a few) - and you see that this is not very appropriate.
There are people who don't use GPU-apps for whatever reason and/or don't have much computers and/or don't run a project 24 hours a day. How long should they run the project to get a higher badge then?
It's already necessary for a Quad-Core system to run almost 6 days non-stop to get the million badge for example.
Please adjust the credit levels to at least the tenth of it - would be way more appropriate I think.

Is it this user which doesn't get e-mails: https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/show_user.php?userid=161 ?

Yes, correct, I'm in charge for that account. Strange, as far as I know there is no spam blocking this mail, I often have to do that when teams are imported.
May take a while until I can check if the mail is really there...

Hello!

The mail system obviously isn't working.
I don't get the mail for changing the password of the team founder - which is always wrong when imported from the BOINC wide teams.
Can you please look into that?
