Please let me know. Also let me know if your accounts were linked or not. I'm trying to debug a potential problem here.

A week ago I ran some DNA WU. I think I had around 70k credits (IIRC) and now it shows me with a single valid WU and 28 credits. I was running 60 threads at 4.2G for several days.

I've never run DNA before so that wasn't linked. SSS was linked and those credits are still showing correctly.

EDIT to above: My current RAC is 5800 and that is hard to do with only 28 credits :) I haven't run DNA for a few days so it will continue to decline but it does show there were lost credits on DNA. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it :D

Should be fixed now! (Along with everyone else with a similar problem).

Unfortunately yes,
freeDC shows 63759 credits, my account page shows 67774, but did not crunch much in the last 3 days.

Another thing: When adding CSG to a new computer it is not shown in the available project list. AFAIK there is some communication with the BOINC devs necessary. Making it manually for now.

Yeah, it hasn't been added to the list of BOINC projects. Not quite sure what we need to do for that.

Look at this thread in the BOINC forum:

This might be a reason that people do not see an increase of their score(s) at the various stats sites: http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg/stats/ , dated 27 September...

I think many of the sites are not sure on how they're going to handle the CSG credit. If anyone is having problems with our stats export, please let me know.

Dirk didn't refer to the handling but to the latest refresh, that's why he mentioned the last update timestamp - it's more than a week old

Thanks! Found the bug -- I had a typo in the cronjob. Just did an export and they should be more regular now.

I don't see anybody "depreciating" leftover OLD credits from Wildlife or DNA but rather it looks like those old numbers will simply get doubled as they are now combined. Boincstats went as far as to list Wildlife as "Retired" but the CSG numbers include the old credits. No big deal... you're right in saying "they aren't certain how they are going to treat" it.

Looks like all the stat sites got updated with credits from the XML's for Oct. 8th but the Badges got left out again.
