Me also, i think we just have to wait becouse there was many pending credit to count for the validator so it may take a while..

The server status page shows the validator is still up. It could be that nobody else has crunched your WUs yet. Remember that 3 copies of the WU have to be returned before credit is given. Or the validator could be behind. Either way, just have patience.

I sent appr. 4-8 WUs per day for several days now, but I only gained credit of exactly 1 (one! - credit points, not work units) yesterday.

I am receiving credit roughly every 15 minutes, although some slower PC's (200mhz-500mhz) are getting credit at a rate of every two days.

Hi

The validator is still up.

I get credits everytime Boinc contacts the server on all my hosts.

The results of processing of a WU is first uploaded.
Once this is done, the next step is to report the results. This is the moment the credit is claimed. But, your claimed credit is compared to the one of 2 other PC's. They have to match or to be close together, otherwise your claimed credit will not be granted.

This all means, in total 3 PC's has to claim first roughly the same amount of credit. As a result of this, it takes normally several days before you get credit.

That's why I run with the smallest "cache" possible. I'm not worried or upset anytime SETI goes down. There is nothing I hate see more than a screen shot of someone's work tab showing 15-20 WU's waiting to report.

Personally, I've been given Credit only on 2 occasions.

Since several days (despite adding more and more Systems to BOINC, chunking out WU's) I observe complete stagnation.

As can be seen under your account, the newest PC's have been added starting the 15th, only 4 days ago.
If you wait some more days, normally credit should be awarded to these PC's.

I haven't received credit in several days either. I finish a WU about once every 2.5 hours, so I find it hard to believe that none of the 9 or 10 WU's I complete every day has been validated by two other machines. It's probably been about 30-40 WU's now since I've received credit.

Looking at the stats at Setisynergy, you got on the 15th 39 credits and the 17th as well as the 18th 1 credit.
Did you do an "Update" in the tab "Projects" the last days?

Did you try to do an "Update"?
In the last 3 days according to Setisynergy your credits raised more then 200.

Have a look here. It looks as your credits are going up.

Just one more aside on this.

If you read through all of the background material one of the points in the new process is that you may process a work unit and return a valid result and recieve no credit. This is no longer a process where all work is rewarded.

Reasons for no reward include:

a) Your result is invalid.
b) the work unit is invalid.
c) you were late in returning your result and the quorum was filled and the WU assimilated
d) all other results but yours is invalid.
e) your result was not needed
f) the moon is over Venus
g) you complained about not getting credit
h) you came up with a flawed scheme to cheat

The process is much tighter, the traceability is there, validation has been increased, the work is only issued as many times as necessary and no more than is necessary.

I do not cheat.I think it just may take a few hours or days for my rwsults to be added to my details etc.As the link below clearly says they are being added etc.

I never said you did. :)

I also stated that the result may be invalid, that because it did not pass validation you would not get credited.
