Hi All,
Background Sub. tasks don't appear to be being counted in the user profile:

Wildlife@Home credit 4,580 total, 120.36 average (18 tasks)

but

Wildlife@Home Video Background Subtractor (23)

at least have been run by my machines recently.
The count in profile seems to be the same as it has been since the projects merged (and my task list still counts 15 Descriptor collection tasks from AGES ago)

Hi Andrew,

I should have fixed this.. given the top lists page it looks like you have 1231 credit for background subtractor, and 3350 credit for the old wildlife@home application. Let me know if that sounds off, but as far as I can tell you're getting credit for the new project.

Ah have i misinterpreted that count in the profile (the 18). Is it the number of recent Valid tasks for that subproject (as i have 18 back. sub. valid in my current task history list)?

I'll keep an eye on it. Not hugely worried about credits as such. Was just looking at task numbers between the profile page and the actual user task list, and not seeing correlation, and made the assumption that maybe the new app wasn't being counted as part of the Wildlife grouping there. (and as that leads to badges... well i am a little bit of a badge hunter)


Also, since I've mentioned the Task list, can you answer something i haven't found on any bionic site (and may be project specific): how long do tasks stay in the user task list? I note across many projects that invalids and errors appear to hang around longer than valid. (e.g. My errored Descriptor Collection tasks have been in my list since before the Great Project Merge, but i can see that my valid DNA tasks only list the last week or so).

i think the 18 is how many tasks you currently are running/have in the queue in your BOINC client.

These credits definitely count towards the badges. We want to make sure of that! On another note, we should have some really cool new Wildlife@Home badges that one of our undergraduate assistants is working on.

I think this depends on the project settings. We have things set up to clear finished results out of the database after a day or so, to prevent the database from filling up and making the websites and everything else too painfully slow.
