The Tech Projects page allows LANThrax members to have a more active role in the decisions concerning which upgrades are added to the
website. Members can “invest” in the projects they deem to be most useful/cool by expending Tech Points. Tech points are accumulated at the same rate as
regular points, but they are independent of the latter. That is, any expended points will not decrease the regular LANThrax points. Additionally, Tech
Points are of the “use them or lose them” type, that is, any unused points are lost after 30 days.
Tech Projects have deadlines until which the “Project Cost” value must be reached. Project costs and deadline countdown lengths are
based on the estimated effort required for the completion of the project and hence vary depending on the difficulty of completing the project.
