    Re: Personal Crunching Goals for 2015

    no retirement is great, as long as you use caution. you need 1 civic thing to do, you need to have some time to help family, and you need to spend the rest of your time doing what you want to do. I spend 7 or so months at the lake doing what ever I want. just do what you want to but control the demands that others make on me.

    4. Einstein to 1 million DONE
    5. WCG to 500k and team top 100 rank (possible, but my phones are not going to get me there)
    6. SZDG to 250k (hopefully pass 446k) (closing, but extremely slow)
    7. Cosmo to 250k (hopefully pass 446k) (kind of given up)
    8. Rosetta to 100k (all active projects over 102,500 essentially as I want all non-active projects at the bottom of my stats page) DONE
    9. As many PG badges to silver as possible (one away SGS LLR)
    10. Add WCG Ebola bronze badge and bump up the others that are active DONE
    Looking back,
    1. Really lost ground there, need more dedicated HP on NFS
    2. Same, but cannot seem to get enough WU's to keep up.
    3-10 all done.

    Very sound advice.

    Re: Personal Crunching Goals for 2015

    I didn't have any particular goals, other than to try to take #1 from Ralfy for the 1M MM. We're currently tied for #1. So that's something.

    Here are the changes for my stats over the past year:

    Mega Milestones:
    - It looks like there were 7 new projects this year (that exported stats). The count for all my MMs from 1k through 1M increased by 7.
    - My ranks remained the same, except for 1M (from second to tied for first), 100M (from 2nd to 3rd), 500M (from 117th to 60th), 1B (from 49th to 67th).

    WUProp:
    - At the beginning of the year, they issued only the single badge. So many of us were just working on improving the top 100 apps, because that is all that would show. But once they added multiple badges, many of us scrambled to add/increase the other apps as possible.
    - If they issued multiple badges at the start of the year, it would have shown this:

    - This is how I ended the year:

    I agree with you Denim, but this is just what we have seen out of Z for so long that it has become the new Standard for him.

    I updated my goals several times throughout the year... but generally hit my marks. I suspended my Einstein 100M goal in order to go for 10M on Albert, which has had steady work for a while. Lately I've been working on 5 year WCG badges, and I have a few other things in mind for 2016. I guess that post should be coming soon
