I have sent in over 40 W.U. and only got credit for 1 of them. What's up? Any one?

It takes three computers all with the "same" result for a WU in order for anybody to get credit. I looked at one of your computers, and it had a very large number of WUs pending credits, and now three with credit. When a computer returns a result for credit depends upon several things. When the WU was sent, how fast the computer is, the length of the computers work queue, how many other projects the computer will work on. Two weeks after a computer is sent a WU, the result is declared not returned, and it is then sent to another computer. At this point, the game starts over for the new computer.

This page has not been adapted since a while. Can somebody of the DEV team make the necessary change so it corresponds to the actual way credits are calculated.


Greetings from Belgium.

Nothing wrong with that page really. Although it could be made a little clearer that it is just an example and that projects may have different requirements/systems for granting credit.
