Congrats on 20 years, but I've been a member since 3 Apr 1999, so it had to have come online prior to May 17, 1999... Was I on a Beta or something?

2) Questions and Answers : Wish list : What Happened to "Interesting Signals"? (Message 381636)

Okay - I'll ask again...Is there an "interesting signals" listing anywhere to let us know which signals are flagged for additional analysis and who found them??? There was a listing on the old Seti@Home Classic site, but it had stopped being updated in 2003..It's very important the people who are donating their CPU cycles (and paying for the extra power drain!) know this so we know all the crunching we're doing is being used for a purpose! Basically, we're not receiving any feedback...

To pile on this topic - when is this feature going to be available for the BOINC version of Seti? I posted this question before, but we users like to know if all the number crunching we are doing is helping at all or going towards some cause - that candidates page hasn't been updated for two years...So, who is looking at all of our results and are we really doing anything of value here???
4) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Need More Work Units (Message 153357)

Rtyme -

You can receive more work at once by going to your account, and under "Edit General Preferences" change the "Connect to network about every" to a higher value - mine is set at 5 days. What this means is that you will always have enough work to last for 5 days (or however long of a time period you put in here), based on your system speed (determined by benchmark).

What happened to the listing that the Seti Classic site had that would list 'interesting' signals that would be used to further target a specific area of the universe? We're not finding out if all the CPU cycles we're donating to this project are doing any good - the only news we get is about which part of the Seti network infrastructure has gone down this time. I mean - that's why we're doing this - we want some news on what good we are doing...

Several of my hosts are completing workunits, but they are not showing up in my account - as a matter af fact, I think other users who are also working on the same workunit are receiving my credit. Has anyone else noticed this?
