Hi,

I just added two PC's to my clan and they've been sending completed units in but have no credit yet.
Any reason for this???

Thanx

Yes, i'll try to explain: The same work unit has to be successfully completed by 2 clients, before either one gets any credit. You are the client who finished all WUs you've completed until now first, so the server is waiting for validation by a second client.

I assume this is one of your machines, here are the completed tasks waiting in "Validation pending":
https://universeathome.pl/universe/results.php?hostid=290855&offset=0&show_names=0&state=2

When the second client has finished successfully, the respective task will move to "Valid" and you will get the credit.

If you click on the work unit ID in the list you can see who else is working on it and what errors might have happened if it's taking longer. It could also take some time until status updates are visible.

Duh!

How stupid am i? Of course you are right. I'm so used to running on slow hardware that my WU's are credited almost immediately. Now I have a couple of OK PC's I'm getting results in faster.

Thanx

Interesting thread....I'll have to check the WU's I've posted to ensure this is happening in my situation, but I came here looking for an answer as to why I haven't received credit for the last 14 days even though my other three projects show a consistent gain. I've been out of town for at least one of those weeks and left my machine crunching, so it's not like it hasn't been working hard.

Like I said, i'll look into the 2nd wu issue to see if that's the case here, it just seems very strange that none of my wu's would have been validated in that time frame.

I checked, but the verification wasn't the problem. Apparently I received a couple of wu's that were subject to another bug or something. I saw them running, but the remaining time was extremely long (one was 11 days remaining). I just reset the project, hopefully that'll fix the issue of my stagnant credit.

The project has been shutdown until server admins patch for Meltown and Spectre. So the only tasks that might still be out there are the buggy ones as the good ones complete.
