Does anyone know why the awarded credit for finished WU's keeps falling? About a week ago I was getting 156 credits for a completed WU. Now it's down to 88, and the WU's are the same size. At this rate it won't be long before I'm getting one credit per WU. lol Thanks.

And welcome back Enigma@home!

That's because I switched the credit system back to my first version, where workunits of the same lenght have a fixed amount of credits assigned to them.
The default system didn't work well, it granted enormous amount of credits for some hosts and way too low for others.

Were you using the ghastly 'Credit New'? That would explain the random credit issues.

Fixed credits are best. Looks like I'll take a hit as I was getting pretty decent credit before, but was beginning to suffer from 'credit fade' ala Credit New anyway :)

Cheers,

Al.

Yep I used "Credit New". For some reason it always started with higher credits (at the beginning of each batch) and then the credits were decreasing.
Another problem is that hosts running optimized app actually were getting less credits than those running stock app (which is much slower).
