Still not getting any Tasks.
I wonder if the Real Formula One runs this way as well, kind of like saying you cannot have any Fuel for your Race Car.

Also to note that once this Sprint is Completed Team Members will Abort the remaining Tasks, kind of like dumping the Fuel on the Ground.

Nah, aborting the tasks would be like putting them back in a container for someone else to use. It's the ones who just reset the project so they're still in lingo until their deadline is passed that are the problem.

So please. Anyone who's running any BOINC project make sure you ABORT tasks you're not going to complete. It puts them back so they can be resent immediately.

PS
Someone really should figure out a way to notify project admins ahead of time for such occasions. These small projects just can't handle it. It makes things frustrating for participants.

Still no Tasks with even setting the Cache to 1 Day

"aborting the tasks would be like putting them back in a container for someone else to use" But what is the Point as the Sprint would be over.
One way for Teams to Bunker all the Tasks and not let other Teams have any to run the Sprint, so it is like dumping the Fuel on the Ground as posted below.

I don't think that much bunkering is going on. I believe the server is just running short on space. When the sprint was announced there were ~320k tasks in progress and after a few days that number has dropped to 220k tasks in progress. Therefore at least ~100k tasks have been returned which seems to be on par with total points for the project in the last day or so as 100k tasks is 48 million points. Even though a lot of tasks are still pending, it's because people are bitting off more than they can chew, but a lot of tasks are being returned. So much so that the finished tasks are taking up more disk space and thus the server is only capable of producing less and less work. By the end of the Sprint we may see a problem with unable to upload completed tasks as the server's space might be at capacity.

Also the word is spelled sprint. Not sprit. You're missing the "n."

As for the "point" of aborting the tasks vs resetting or detaching the project is because above all there is still science that needs to be answered even without these challenges and games we play. Therefore, it's still important to abort the tasks so others who run the project on a day-to-day basis without the need for any games or competitions to continue solving the problems.

Very very very strange.
At the end of the sprint, Asteroid produce again work !!!
During all the sprint, no any tasks. Now it is almost finished (2 hours UTC)
All works again.
And much more strange, on a sunday afternoon (UTC), all servers works again a few hours before end of challenge !!!

So as Formula Boinc cruncher, as founder of the first Belgian team, very active,
I suspect something abnormal
Look all post on forum of Asteroid. No any post from Admin, moderator, NOTHING

It is no fair from this project. I suggest to remove it from Formula because they not respect the rules

Tasks ready to send 165018, but to late for the Sprint Event.
This is now the Second Sprint (In a Row) that this has happened with ODLK1 being the first.
But remember that is what it is all about, at lest that is what I am told.
