Different weight points based on project

Post by Skillz » Thu May 27, 2021 9:34 pm

So, I've been thinking how to include NCI type projects in the competition. I understand most of those projects are not really valued that high by most crunchers. So, I was thinking of including them (WUProp, iThena) in the competition but only in the marathons. No sprints. However, their point structure will be significantly lower than other projects. I was also thinking of doing this with all the projects, giving Medical based projects the highest weights, followed by Physical Science and then Mathematics, then NCI projects having the lowest weight.

Any ideas on this?

I don't even know what points to award 1st, 2nd, 3rd, so on and so forth.

Like say for example;
NCI projects 1st place gets 25.
Mathematics 1st place gets 51.
Physical Science 1st place gets 77.
Medical 1st places gets 104.

Or something along those lines. Since not all project categories are created equal.
