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).

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)
