#1 WUs with missed deadline

Unread post by Hal Bregg » Fri Jul 19, 2019 2:59 pm

I need quick advice, gents.

I have some yoyo Siever WUs going to pass deadline. Should I cancel them, let them run or they will be cancelled by project?

If they are running, let them run. If the project server wants to abort them, it will send a message to the boinc client and it will abort them.

Hal, on most projects, if you turn in a WU after the deadline AND you get it in before another person then you will get credit. There are a few that if you go past the deadline you are completely screwed.

Knowing yoyo, he has some snide remarks about the boinc manager and advises to let it run till completion.
Check your yoyo account page for the WUs to see if they are past their limit there as well, and even then: Yoyo will seldom give you no credits for a completed wu.
