I posted this on the Beta board but I don't know if anyone on the project team actually reads the forum there.

Validation isn't used in cpdn or cpdn Beta. The output is a default part of the boinc server software and has been customized to be removed from the server status text here. It hasn't been customized at the beta site.

Credits here are based on trickles returned instead of "validated" results.

Unfortunately, trickles haven't been working on the beta site for a couple years? So no beta credits during that time. The admins know about it but it hasn't been raised to the priority level of actually fixing it.

Did I waste 385 hours of computing time not to receive credit for my task that was successfully returned 24+ hours ago?
