I've crunched several WUs lately, not much, but there are not so many ;)
I can see them in my tasks list as long as they are either still in work or not validated. As soo as the validator gets to them they disappear from the list.
How can anyone say anything useful about ones work if there is nothing to be seen?
Why can't they stay in the list for 1 or 2 days, as every other project does, even non-beta ones?
What's the use of crunching here some beta WUs if you can't say anything about their performance?

it's done this way so that jack can see the results as they come out. and we are heading in the right direction. i'm going to post the weekly stats on all apps. here is a bit after the nascar race goes off.

No problem with a fast processing, you can validate, assimilate and transition them as fast as you want to, as long as you keep the file-deleter a bit more on slow motion.

I still can't tell whether my WUs were successful or not, as they disappear before I have a chance to look at them after the validator gets to them. I only see those WUs, that I only claim to be right, and I see my credits climbing from time to time, but that's worth nothing.

Why don't you want our help in this regard? There is absolutely no need to delete every validated WU, you can have them in your other database without deleting them here and giving your "testers" nothing to validate their testing.

Probably one or two dozens. Not much, but I crunch in several dozen projects on a single computer, and this behaviour doesn't make your project more trustworthy.
I can't tell exactly how much, as only those "Waiting for validation" (or recently a lot of "Error while downloading") are shown, and I don't sit at my computer all the time and watch for DD-WUs.

Thanks for fixing this bug!
Now I can as well see those WUs that went through fine and validated properly, as expected :)

I take my thanks back, as you did the wrong thing again, it seemed to have lasted only a few days.

Why do you do such unfriendly things?
How is anyone supposed to see anything about his/her WUs?

I just happened to report one WU and went here asap, and that was very necessary, as you decided to grant no credits for a valid (probably) WU as it had "Too many total results" It was this WU: 563398, but it's vanished now as well.

I haven't done a screenshot, will do so in the furure if I happen to see such behaviour again, only it will be quite futile with this inexapable behaviour of deletion asap.

It had 2 probably valid results, one aborted, one calculation error and 4 non-sends. Max of totals is 8, so this was just reached but not surpassed. Why did you create 8 WUS if you don't want them?
