Has any other person been at this longer than I have? I came on board August 8, some thing or other. I cannot remember. I do know that it will soon be 20 years and many home brewed PCs. I am making ready for the 16 core 30 thread ( think ) that is 2 grand and as soon as I can get the "she who must obeyed" on line I will do it.

You can check how long people have been with the project by looking at the joined date under their names IF they are still using the same account and email. Dr. D has me beat by 2 weeks...

Yep, there are a few of us old coots still active. It was quite a different computer environment "back in the last century." Looking forward to the 20 year club, not quite there yet but within the reasonable future. ET, please call soon!

Although I also get WUs again, my point average is still decreasing.
Is this normal after such a time without WU, or is there something wrong?

After an outage, there will always be a drop in RAC (Recent Average Credit). And there have been several longer & unexpected outages over the last month or so.
However, to make things even worse, the way Credit New determines how much Credit to award for processing a WU is also resulting in less Credit being awarded at present, than it did in the past.
End result, everyone is seeing a big drop in their RAC.

As long as there aren't any further unexpected outages or work shortages, RAC should stabilise within the next couple of weeks (hopefully).

Check out the Number Crunching forum, and the "A very steep decline in Average Credits!!!" thread for some of the discussions about the falling value in Credit.

. . FWIIW I am seeing signs of the great depression of RACs bottoming out. I think it will (with no further undue outages) stabilise within the week.

. . With these shorter running batches of Blc tasks the demand for WUs has increased and the return rate has skyrocketed. The splitters et al are struggling to maintain the RTS store and if the splitter rate drops below about 50/sec then the RTS drops and getting new work becomes a problem.
