SSL encryption
We are trying to configure SSL encryption. This can cause a short-term server malfunction. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Nikolay has successfully configured SSL encryption for this project. Now, the most valuable communications are secured.

The emails are also SSL-encrypted. Those who previously had problems receiving emails from the project (password recovery, etc.) will now be able to receive them. Just don't forget to check the spam folder.

I’ve added badges for total credit (for users and teams) and total number of different COD entries processed (only for users).

The steps for total credit are:

    10,000 (graphite)
    100,000 (bronze)
    1,000,000 (silver)
    10,000,000 (gold)
    100,000,000 (diamond)

The x-ray powder diffraction patterns of respective materials are shown on the badges (since the diffraction pattern of ordinary gold and silver look identical, I used the diffraction pattern of hexagonal gold nanostructured films for the gold).

The steps for total number of different COD entries processed are:

    1,000; 2,000; …; 9,000 (bronze)
    10,000; 20,000; …; 90,000 (silver)
    100,000; 200,000; 300,000 (gold)

Active phase of the project is completed by 20% in the first 24 days
Only about 0.2% of the obtained results should be recalculated due to bugs in the early versions of the apps (the results obtained with the version 1.04 mostly). All other results are included in the final database. 12 Jul 2017, 20:28:27 UTC · Comment

Crystallography Open Database server is temporarily down
We get the input data for the WUs from the http://crystallography.net. So, while this server is down we can't generate new WUs.

Added a mirror.

Update 2
It seems that http://crystallography.net/ is up again. But if the problem recurs in the future, the requests will be redirected to the mirror server, http://qiserver.ugr.es/cod/.
