Hello new user here, i'm a college student and would like to make some money. What's Credits at SETI@Home means? Is it credits as real money or just a score for participating in this project?

Just a score.



However there is a rumour that if you get enough you may be in for a chance of being entered into a draw for the ever elusive toaster. However nobody has ever been entered into the draw, let alone won one...)

You're joking, right?

But, I'll say this, posting messages in three different places, but not having any computers attached to your account raises alot of suspicion here, especially amongst the moderators.

You don't make money on this forum. Credits are a made-up system to reward people for participating in contributing their CPU time to any given BOINC project. These credits are not transferable to currency at all.

But then, there's always people that try in any way. ;-)
