I've been observing that some tasks have a great delay to be validated. I have tasks from December 23th read and waiting to be validated. I would like to know the reason for this!

Every task is sent to two computers.

This is so the results can be compared, if they match then they will be validated.

So you have to wait if your "wingmate" is slower at returning results.

Unfortunately sometimes your "wingmate" fails to return the result and it will then have to be sent out to a third machine.

Hopefully that machine will return a valid result.

It might take several months but hopefully they will validate in the end


PS. Your "oldest" task that you returned on the 23rd December has a deadline of the 13th of February 2018.
