Hi,

I see several of my tasks are in pending validation status for long time, some of the from mid March and some of them, that is the reason of this post, without any other instance of the task being in progress by anyone. Is it normal or is there any error in the database or wherever?

thanks

I share your concern and have addressed the problem to Jack in a private message yesterday. He says everything will catch up in a few days. I hope so but I am concerned for at this moment I have accumulated about 690 validated work units but I have an inventory of about 420 in the completed and awaiting validation state. It does concern me more than a little but I have confidence in management.

As I told Jack, I find it troubling where virgin (unsent) tasks are being sent out for initial processing and yet I know there are initially processed and completed tasks waiting for days to be validated. Apparently it is difficult to set up the servers to handle all these parameters.

I am wondering outloud if it would be practical to stop sending out new units for a given period and instruct the servers to send out the initially completed tasks for the required 3 quorum validations.

Admin:: How about answering this man.

An examination under the TASKS file of my account indicates that virtually all of the older units PENDING are now being processed to arrive at the required three-quorum validation. My pending file has dropped over the last few days from over 400 to the current, about 160.

What I still find troubling is that the Administrative folks are not responding in a timely manner to such concerns raised by volunteer crunchers. Surely the managers/responders are very busy but it would only take a few minutes daily for someone to keep all of us volunteers updated.
