For most of the last year, I've been using a system to benchmark our LLR credit that wasn't behaving as I expected. The result is that several LLR projects had some tasks receiving more credit than anticipated.

I have completed making the tests and calculations necessary to adjust the credit system. Fixing the problem required completely new credit benchmarks for all LLR projects, so everything is changing, if only by a little bit. You may notice the following changes:

1) Tasks currently with erroneous credit will now be producing the correct amount of credit. These tasks will see a reduction in credit between 3% and 18%. Affected projects are: Some Woodall, some Cullen, some PSP, and all GCW.

2) Otherwise, credit on large tasks will mostly be very close to previous values, but credit on the small tasks (PPS and PPSE) will go up.

3) SGS, which is the reference for all LLR credit, is unchanged.

4) Everything that's not LLR (GFN, sieves, AP27) is unchanged.

As of yet there's no timetable for implementing these changes, but it will probably happen in the near future.

Can you share which project is responsible for the +18% bonus so that we can jump the gun for the early Xmas present? :-P

Eh, why not...

Woodall: 11%
Cullen: 3%
PSP: 17%
GCW: 10%-18%

The GCW numbers include a lot of FFTs that won't get used for quite a while. For the small number of FFTs currently in use, the error ranges from... 10% to 18%. :)

It's probably not worth changing what you're running just for this. "Change in the near future" probably means later today or tomorrow. Also... credit is determined at the initial validation, NOT when you download the task. So downloading a task right now while the credit is erroneously high doesn't mean the error will still be active when the task gets validated. And there's absolutely no benefit in stockpiling tasks.

So do tasks that were in a waiting on a wingperson state get the old amount of credit or the new amount?

If there's not yet a canonical result, i.e., no tasks have been validated yet, they get the new credit. If there's any result that's been validated already, any subsequent tasks will receive the same credit as the previously validated task(s).

In the normal case of two tasks, where you're done and you're waiting for the wingman, you'll get the new credit. (Except for the errors, that generally means more credit.)
