Why am I not being given credit for the work being done? I watch my system doing work, watch it upload and yet since DAY ONE I have yet been given credit... What gives?

You attached your computer on 27 January. Soon after that, the website/database experienced problems. Now that things are back up, the credit script will be run. Usually it's run once a week over the weekend. Although occasionally it can go more than a week without being run. The credits will come.

Hi Draggynsmate,
A few comments that might help.
This project is really quite different from all the other projects you can access through BOINC, as I know from running work for the malaria project
The tasks that you are sent often take a long time to process and often have large files to upload.
Also the project has had some problems recently with the back-end of the whole system which needed some serious programming effort.
If you check out other members you will see how long they have been contributing and still persevere.
It looks as though a lot of the back-end problems have been solved during the recent shutdown but we will have to wait a while to see if any remain.
If you check out some of the threads on this board relating to uploads/downloads etc. you'll see that everything has always been resolved at some time or other.
Other threads give some indication of the complexity of the project.
The credits always get through in the end.
It's a really worthwhile project to contribute to, so I hope you'll hang in there.
