And it's much more than a wrapper. It's a completely new take on the workflow of benchmarking.

Is that what people are wanting?

Yes, IMO, in as much as it addresses the compatibility and vulnerability issues that have been the point of many complaints.

I don't know the answer to that but for me it feels right...

I was under the impression that people just wanted a wrapper to stop cheating and therefore allow people to use potentially cheatable OS/chip combinations, nothing more but fair enough, time will tell. I'm just a grumpy old man who doesn't like change :)

I thought about this long and hard today. I have a vision of course. A vision that came together in the last few years while working on and supporting GPUPI, talking to overclockers, researching benchmark security and breaking every bench out there.
So yes, I think that poeple want easier access to benching to get the community growing. They want to trust all posted results, screenshots and system data. I also think that everybody wants more system data, like much more! And I am pretty sure nobody wants to ever fill out a submission form again for ten results in a row. :)

That said I made a decision today. Fulfilling my promises will take more time and I don't think we have that luxury. We need a solution right now. So I am going to take a big shortcut and release the first few versions of BenchMate as a wrapper to HWBOT. Although I disabled a couple of features again, this will be a HUGE step forward in the right direction. I am currently working on integrating HWBOT submissions by result file and online. It shouldn't take too long, so expect a beta version very soon.

Don't get me wrong - I don't like change either but I also kind of feel like if I rank higher than someone else just because I had the time to figure out which O/S runs such and such benchmark faster that it really doesn't test my skill level or accurately gauge where I'm at.

If there is a fallacy in this line of thought I'm more than willing to be corrected 🙂

EDIT: Just read what Mat's wrote above.... Mat - please - the first thing that would be helpful would be if you setup a donation link!

Yes it does.

Benchmarking is a total package, not just whipping your hardware.

Overclocking is whipping your hardware.

Benchmarking is actually doing something with your overclock.....which requires a little more thought and resourcefulness to get a better score. After all, the score is what matters, not just the overclock used.

If you make that distinction between "overclocking" and "benchmarking" then I see your point. I guess I never really thought of them as being different.
