Dear HWBot members,
In the past we have stated that for joined benchmark sessions users could register a new account to start a subteam. The impact of these subteams, however, was more than a bit underestimated. Our Russian friends of the Russian Overs Team, Sergey13 and Mayk, clearly showed the HWBot crew how easy it was for their team to gain HWBoints just by registering more subteams. Along with the negative response posted by members on our forums, we are obliged to rewrite the guidelines.
From now on, we still encourage joined benchmark sessions, but the results must be uploaded in this way:
– For videocard benchmarks (3DMark01/03/05/06, Aquamark): upload the results to the account of the owner of the videocard.
– For processor benchmarks (SuperPi1M/32M, PCMark05, wPrime32M/1024M, PiFast): upload the results to the account of the owner of the processor.
– Uploading lower scores on other accounts than the one of owner of the hardware is not allowed.
Sergey13 and Mayk have already asked us to manualy move the results to another account and we kindly ask other members, in the same situation, to do the same.
– The HWBot crew.
