What do the credits do for you???


Long answer short, nothing.

The credits are nothing more than a means of measuring contribution. The only issue is that CreditScrew gives less credit for Multibeam (MB) than Astropulse (AP). I would suggest that you focus on AP when it is available rather than MB.

cheers

You can trade them in for kudos, esteem and bragging rights. However, the exchange rate took a huge hit last year (more so for MB WUs than AP WUs) and despite a lot of complaints has not recovered since.



Haha, I do like that.

And provide a benchmark to make comparisons from and to indicate when you may have a problem happening. ;-)

Cheers.
