Why doesn't anyone update the incorrect and outdated information on the front page? Every now and then we get people who think we are still on the third message, and recently we know some new member got suspicious of how the third message has taken "over 10 years" and left. Why can't anyone update it to "fifth of five messages" or "we later discovered two more messages, and we are on the last of those?" The blog seems to be slightly updated in that saying the third message (?) has been solved? Why doesn't anyone update the page with the correct information? Does this project even have an administrator or are our work units being ignored?

Thank you!

I have switched all my boinc clients to crunch on some other projects as I have the same feeling that this project is not really active (although WU's are generated and accepted etc.). I'll check in from time to time to see if anything changes but until then I won't be requesting new Enigma work.

This project is already active, you can see the results getting top scores in special topic, all we need to do is to wait for this one result with huge score.

This is the topic I'm talking about:

TJM has automated the scoring process long time ago and I think he will be back when we will discover this high-scored result which will be containing original message. When he gave us the previous message, he gave it and he left the project alone, then, when it was cracked, he came back to the forum. Moreover, somebody must pay money for the hosting, so I think that this project is not abandoned.
