I don't know who the individual is that zeroed out my 15 awaiting work assignments that I "Finished" successfully but I don't appreciate losing just over 60 points of credit. Being an Astronomer I do love helping this project but I must say I am very disappointed. But alas, these things happen, that's what we call "life". Now back to crunching in hopes that future work units are not zeroed out. Have a GREAT! day folks. :)

Regards,

Only 15? I lost probably 150-200, I'm sure others lost more than I did.

credit should have been awarded for all the WUs that actually were sent back to the server. i waited for the validator/assimilator to clear all those out before i removed everything from the database -- so the only credit that should have been lost were for WUs that were completed but not yet reported to the server.

Sorry Travis I had 32 pending and only 3 of those validated I stopped crunching anymore at about 00:30 UTC so all the ones I lost had been reported to the server before that time

Still all the ones I've done today are validating nicely

I had at least 250 sitting in pending at the time of the clean-up but only got credit for maybe 5 of them since my total only went up a little.

Ah well, that's life at alpha projects. Just hope things improve.

There is one good thing at least the project was not a project of the month for a team the boards would have been filled with complaints

Actually, it is Calm Chaos' POTM right now. We're small but have some pretty good crunching power. But we're a hardy group that understands these things.

And we tend to keep our complaining on our own boards. ;)

Lol.

We don't complain that much Labbie.

Never surrender and never give up. In the darkest hour there is always hope.
