I started using Boinc with Seti@home relatively recently, on 1 Sep.

I've noticed on my Android device (a Samsung phone, Android 7.0) that asks are perpetually stuck as 'in progress'. In the app itself, the tasks appear to complete and new tasks are fetched. When I look at the tasks on the website, they're listed as 'in progress'. Only one task on this device is marked as validated.

This seems odd to me, am I misinterpreting this? Computer id is 8333212

As best I can tell, everything is looking normal.

Note that once two copies of the task are returned, and if they match closely, they are considered to be "validated". Validated tasks are removed from the website within 24 hours of validation.

Can you confirm which task number is listed in progress on the website, and which has been completed and returned on your Android device so we can take a closer look?
