My total count that was at 2553 WUs and had gone up in the past days over 3000 (3700?) WUs is now down to 2107 WUs.

Whoever is responsible: would you please explain that to me!

THANKS

Do you mean on your Tasks page? If so they transfer the results to offline storage after a period of time which will lower the total numbers on your Tasks page. I've been a Member here since 8 May 2009 and have 143,649,568 Total Credits, there's no way they could keep ALL of those online without a HUGE database. When I click on my own Tasks page I see All (545), that is way down even from just a few days ago when I had a fricking boatload of 'inconclusive' workunits, not counting all the other workunits too.

I never noticed that ... Not even on other project sites!
Shame on me.
Thanks for explaining.

(I still don't know what the "validation inconclusive" status means ...)

That means that you are waiting for someone else to crunch the same workunit and validate it against your results, they have a two pc minimum requirement here to validate all the workunits. If the 2nd persons result isn't 'close enough' to your results then MW will send it to a 3rd pc to see which of the first two results were correct.
