My computer Desktop2 shows 1,656 total credits in the list of computers, but no credits or "valid" tasks in its list of tasks. Why? I'm sure I've noticed nonzero values for "Valid" at the top, but it's currently zero. Valid tasks seem to be disappearing for that computer. (Possibly others, too, but I haven't kept a close eye on them.)

Update: Looking at some other users' computers, it looks like it may be normal behavior to discard the task entries a day or three after completion. If so, that tasks list is less useful/interesting than I first thought. And, the page title, "All tasks for computer n", is incorrect and misleading.

Valid tasks vanish from display 24 hours after validation.
