Please add a single status page so that people can see at a glance what problems exist. For instance, the Server Status page does not display the (apparent ?) current trickle up problem. Searching the forums is time consuming and the results are not clear. Something like: "Problems with trickle up, credits are not being updated. Remedy will likely be slow. Your statistics may be flat. Your processing is contributing, so let things run." would be helpful.

1) Informs about the problem.
2) How long it will take to fix.
3) Informs of symptoms.
4) Informs that I should not abort the current process because things look odd. (Which is what I am tempted to do)

It is also somewhat difficult to tell what is going on in the server status. A human interpretation of the status especially when there is an issue would be nice.
Thank you. -Jim

There is the news & announcements thread:

http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=5447

If you bookmark it, it's then easier to find.

That does help. Would it be possible to add it to the menu list on the left so that others can easily find it as well?

BTW Mike, The News, Announcements and README posts on your signature are 404.
Thanks -Jim

Ah, OK, I didn't even realise that I was still posting with a signature! (I had hide-signatures turned on). They were pointing to the old phpBB forum, so I have adjusted them to point to the appropriate places on the Boinc forum.

I have passed on the suggestion.

Cheers.
