Are you saying you were given extra credits when you completed a WU?

I thought this problem was fixed...

have not received any credits (or even extra ones)as I am just as I only 1 of 3 through my first WU. I have noticed when I started or signed up it mentioned about wu credits (or cobblestones) what are these meant to represent??

Credits are measured in "Cobblestones" which is a means of using a common unit of measurement across all BOINC Projects. Pre BOINC Projects would count only Work Units completed. Such a simplistic calculation is no longer possible under BOINC, as you can run WUs for multiple Projects, with each Project WU being of a different size. Therefore to get a fair measurement of volunteer cpu effort expended for the infamous stats on each Project, the "Cobblestone" was born
The core definition of a Cobblestone:

A couple of cross project stats pages (there are more, these are the two that I have memorized). http://www.boincstats.com/ http://www.boinc.dk/

It appears that projects don't earn credits at the same rate...my RAC for CPDN is in the 90's while Seti is ~19. Both are running equally (swapping every hour)...

What are others' experience with the different projects and how fast credits are earned...

thanks...

Since CPDN WUs don't need to wait verification from two other hosts, credit is always going to be granted much more quickly.
