I am wondering if and how I can cancle jobs if I recognize some issues in a picture or want to send an updated scene?

Is there somewhere more information how Burp works. Also to understand the credits system? Is there some kind of guide which explains the main aspects of this nice distributed rendering concept?

Thanks and cheers
Michael

So far only the project admin Janus can cancel sessions when they're submitted. You can tell him by directly posting in the thread relating to the session, as happened here.
I'm not sure anymore but I think I've readed somewhere that it may be possible in the future to cancel sessions when you have created them yourself.

Also to understand the credits system?

THIS is a topic you can write books about. BURP is based on the well-known BOINC-based CreditNew-system, which no one really understands, not even the creator David Anderson himself. ;-)
If you want to know more about BOINC at all I suggest digging yourself into the BOINC wiki if you like. CreditNew is explained here.

Sorry if the answer maybe not to your satisfaction, couldn't resist to answer that... ;-)
