Hi, started crunching for the time today so im still learning how everything works. How long does it normally take to validate each WU?

Thanks

Edit: Ive just seen that one of my WU has been validated.

When thing are optimal about 30 sec. after both you and your wingman report the work and have a similar result. It depends a lot on who get the other copy of the WU.

I had a situation where my result was pending for 3 months. I went through 4 wingmen with an assortment of problem -- first one didn't agree closely enough so another copy was sent out. The 2nd went AWOL so it went to due date before reissue, 3rd took 4 weeks and had error in result, 4th took about 2 weeks to turn in the result but luckly had a near match to me and my original wingman so all three of us got the credit.

The majority of times it get validated in a few days to a week.
