Message 4027 - Posted 17 Sep 2006 22:01:15 UTC

    I spent nearly 190 hours on 1 wu, which should have gave me 1100 credit. I noticed the others who downloaded the same wu aborted, so it couln\'t be confirmed. Just checked & that wu has been deleted & I have not had any credit. You would think that the amount of time I stuck with this wu, I should have got something.

    Is this going to be the norm & should I not bother with SZTAKI if you cannot guarantee that the work you do you do not always get credit

      I see a similar problem: Even if one user sticks to the wu and completes it, what are the chances that all other users wouldn\'t abort it. i have two wus running worth already 56 hours. if they do not get validated with a quorum the effort is totally lost and would have better been given to other projects.
      i really urge the project officials to deal with these issues (also stated in the thread \"how long is short\"). otherwhise you risk losing your user base. trust and patience are crucial with all those other wortwhile prjects out there.

        Before the WUs have been deleted, I\'ve granted claimed credits for each result, no matter if it have been confirmed by other results, so you should have got credit for the result in question, although you cannot check it anymore.

          Szia Ádám!
          Se a megszakított munkákért (szept. 10-edike miatt), se azokért, melyek végig futottak, csak a legvégén jeleztek hibát, se a sikeresen lefutottakért nem kaptam egyetlen kreditet sem.
          Akkor az a több száz (ezer?) órányi kredit elveszett?

            After checking all I got was a measly 2 THATS TWO credits, unless the other 1098 are in the pipeline and I will be seeing a credit in the near future. It dosen\'t seem fair after 190 hours.

              All this is why I stopped running this project. I have over 3000 points pending. I will probably never see them. Adam and the crew need to look into their validation practices or they will loose alot of participants. There are plenty of other worthy causes that actually give you points. Once Sztaki starts granting credit for time spent crunching, then I will come back. But not until that happens.

                I hope this has been corrected - as I have downloaded lots of WU\'s recently and have just started crunching them.

                  lots of wus means a load of work, hope you have some years spare.
                  i am at 40% with 65 hours crunched.

                      Agreed, looks like the estimated completion time during download was under estimated by about 100% :) when WU\'s downloaded it estimated completion time was 22 min. after 40 hours of crunching I now have 22 min. and sitting at about 50% - if these numbers are correct, I should have about 22 min left in about a week from now.

                      Fun and games with the grid.
