Statement of the dev regarding Research Age as new payment system
(https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/1331-new-coin-launch-announcement-grc-gridcoin/?p=191018)

Quote
I just wanted to make a statement about the future Research Age payment algorithm as it relates to block caps and investments in Gridcoin:

In addition to regular testnet testing over the next few weeks, we will not go live with it until all of these points are addressed:
No payment will be made on POR blocks with a submitted age > 6 months.  A zero POR block will be staked and the age will start over.
A superblock with verified user magnitude in it must exist at least once per month for any magnitudes spanning > 30 days, to assess a good midpoint magnitude - to arrive at a good average mag.  Those values will be used and added to the historical average for the staked block.
*Neural network will be modified to take daily snapshots of mags and send the information to the coin to have exact magnitude averages.
Magnitude out of bounds checks must be enforced: Any magnitudes posted varying a greater percent than the high fluctuation percentage will not be counted in the averages.  The algo will take into account rising mags, falling mags etc, but for example, a mag that is out of bounds will not be counted in that days average.
A certain high limit will have to be imposed for the absolute highest magnitudes, possibly 20000~ - this must be done to create some sort of maximum subsidy cap.
A max subsidy of BlockMax * 180 will be added just in case.
Subsidies will be paid using the agreed magnitude unit so as payments for the day are subtracted from the kitty daily (IE no coin overpayments per day).
If a start magnitude is unavailable for some reason, the POR will be zero, and age will start over at that point.
Timespans < 30 days will use verified superblock start mag, end mag and midpoint mag.
Timespans > 30 will use verified start, stop, and midpoints - plus the NN avg info, as soon as it is added.  This will be added before we go live.
Conditions outside of these result in a staked POR blocks of 0 for POR, but with interest paid.
POR age accrual always starts over as of the last POR block staked.

Help test Research Age in testnet the following way, as described by pakaran on the main forum (https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/40141-testnet-research-age/#entry190900):

Quote
Here's my draft tutorial:
 
So you want to help by running a testnet node, but don't know where to start?  Thanks in advance for your help.  The more people on testnet, the faster it will get confirmations, which makes things far easier for the development team.  

Testnet is completely separate from mainnet; they run on different ports, so you can run both at the same time.  
 
If you have specified an RPC port in your gridcoinresearch.conf file, see an important note below at the *.  Otherwise, your existing file will be used, and work properly, automatically.

In either case, move to the directory the executable is in (Windows users: Start -> run, type cmd, then enter
cd ProgramFiles/Gridcoinresearch/
and start the Gridcoin client with the --testnet argument:
Linux:
$ ./gridcoinresearch --testnet
 Windows:
gridcoinresearch.exe --testnet
You can also create a shortcut on Windows (or trivial shell script on Linux) to start the program with the appropriate argument.

Now let it run.  As with mainnet, you will need at least some coins to mine or stake.  At the moment, there is no fountain on testnet, so feel free to ask for some coins in this thread, or in the #gridcoin channel on Freenode IRC (if you don't have an IRC -- Internet Relay Chat -- client, there's a web-based one at https://webchat.freenode.net/, and you can just type #gridcoin under "Channels:").
 
Once you have coins, it's "hurry up and wait" time: you'll still need to send a beacon (if not done automatically), get into a superblock, and then wait for PoR/PoS rewards.

Thanks again for helping out!
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
*If you have specified an RPC port, then using the same configuration file will not work, since your main and testnet client will both attempt to attach to that port.  You will need to edit the file, and change the port number to a different one.
 
First off, copy your gridcoinresearch.conf file from ~/.GridcoinResearch/ to ~/.GridcoinResearch/testnet on Linux, creating the directory if necessary.  On Windows,  copy it from AppData/Roaming/GridcoinResearch/testnet to AppData/Roaming/GridcoinResearch/testnet.

Alternatively, you can create a new configuration file, remembering to set your BOINC email address if you want to mine rather than being an investor:
email=you@provider.com
In any case, change the RPC port in the "testnet" folder's copy of gridcoinresearch.conf to a different one, save, and THEN start the testnet client as outlined above.

so I made a first version of a document explaining how Gridcoin works: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PE4Rb6JylkVxj031pHW6aNPU-PLh_VenLHTkgqcZ2NM/edit#heading=h.w0am5v95932e

What do you think of it?

Good job on the text file, but I think an infographic will be a lot more effective for this.

You have to be a member of the forum (not newbie status) which means you have to have an activity above 30 I guess.

Probably we will have bad luck with voting here in general because we are acting on another forum. Our members there are not so active as they are in CCT. Like us: (

As always, we try our best! Bad luck or not, if we can get one new researcher or investor, we have won Smiley

Gridcoin Research 3.4.7.6/MSI=28.4
Leisure Upgrade
(Mandatory for TestNet)
 
- Fixed issue where client was constantly probing coin age.
- Added LastPORBlockHash to showblock. (Note: this will only populate going forward, after 8-13-2015).
- Fixed historical calculation problem in list rsa Lifetime Research payments field.
- Removed unecessary logging with fDebug=true on.
- Added Earliest Payment field to list rsa (Note: The earliest possible payment date is the day we switched to the new block index - around July 4th 2015, so payments before that date
are not counted in Lifetime payments nor earliest age).
- Added Tx Count to list rsa to make it easier to reconcile list lifetime <yourcpid>

Gridcoin Research 3.4.7.7/MSI=28.5
Leisure Upgrade
(Mandatory for TestNet)
 
- Fixed mintlimiter rule in TestNet keeping nodes from staking
- Added MiningErrors8 to getmininginfo and to overview.  If you are probing coin age for more than 10 minutes, this field will show what is going on in the stakeminer.
  If it says, Kernel Found 0: that means coin age is not mature enough.  After approx 5 mins, Kernel Found should increase to a portion of the coins in the Stake bucket.  Once that happens the node will
  stake as soon as it passes the mintlimiter threshhold for the diff level.  Tested in testnet successfully (we should see more staking).
- Added Lifetime Average Magnitude to list rsa.  This will be valuable to see the long term payments per day per magnitude in the future.

Gridcoin Research 3.4.7.8/MSI=28.6
Leisure Upgrade
(Mandatory for TestNet)
 
- Added beacon sponsorship system: execute advertisebeacon neural
  Will send a beacon through the neural network, another host will sponsor the CPID and send the beacon (allowing users with 0 grc to enter the NN)
- Added 'list staking' staking report.  This will explain in detail what coins are eligibile for staking by the stakeminer.  The first phase of the report shows coins with enough age to stake.
  The second phase of the report shows coins the stakeminer will pick up for staking.  It also shows the stakeable balance.
- Finally found the root cause of some nodes not staking regularly (probing coin age constantly).  The problem was some coin wallet tx totaling zero were taking precedence in stake miner - ie hogging
  up the position of Highest priority to stake, because they were the oldest, but worth the least.  Stakeminer cant stake unless it finds more than 0 coins in a set.  Fixed. 
- Fixed crash (segfault) affecting either syncing from zero, or certain reorgs in the coin.
- Added all CPID interest to lifetime interest field (list rsa) Lifetime Interest (not just POR block interest).
- Fixed POR indicator in tx list (showing certain POR as Interest only)

Even if you make a few hundred post, activity won't really move. It's a combination of post plus.. days of being active (reading?) here. The info can be found somewhere.. but.. can't remember where. LOL
