I have over 800 returned with zero credit. I thought the last work on Linux was bad but getting zero for work you process is not what I expected.

I hope you are going to fix this so that all the Valid zero credit tasks get credit or you will lose a lot of users I am sure.

When I tried to update the following fields as selected:

General terms-of-use for this BOINC project. ---
Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites? ---

I got this error and the fields were not updated.

Your preferences have been updated, and will take effect when your computer communicates with iThena or you issue the Update command from the BOINC Manager.

@Rysiu - I think that some sort of credit is expected for processing tasks, be it Beta or not. We the users are using our resources like electricity which in Australia is very expensive ( $0.27 KWh) as well as our computers. A work unit that runs for 2000 seconds should get about somewhere between 10 and 20 credits I believe based on other NCI projects.

It is the credits/Badges/Teams that create the challenges between these entities that make distributed computing interesting apart from the science.

Just my 2 cents worth.
