just asking but can we have games on SETI at home

The developers have no free time to program games. There are only about five people in the SETI@Home team, and most of their time is spent trying to fix server problems, write grant proposals (SETI@Home has no government funding anymore and requires donations and grants to attain money to keep running the project - and pay for some of their wages. No grants, no pay. No pay, they go broke in their home lives) and many other things.
If this were a commercial effort that made money and paid their programmers money, this would be a great suggestion. Unfortunately, that is not the reality.
