There seems to be a lot of inconclusive WUs on this project and as such it seems many have stopped working on this project...

Will we get points for working these units? Its not the points I am bothered about as such its more of, I have spent 2 plus days working this project to have no reward when I have other projects that are getting close to there deadline and points.

I hope we get credit. These were 3hr jobs and I completed a dozen or so of them. That is a lot of time I could have been crunching on another project. And when you look at the tasks, many of them have upwards of 6-8 "Completed, marked as invalid". That is a ton of wasted crunch time!!

I hope someone revisits all of the earned WU's.

This is exactly my thinking!

However in answer to both our questions, no we haven't got credit for the failed tasks... I can understand why but also it is cpu time we could have spent else where!

If it was completed and returned, you will eventually get credit for the tasks...

Unfortunately, this project is pretty special when it comes to errors and the like, because all of the work is generated by the community, so there are many variables that the admins may not always have a handle on. It's not for the faint of heart, but you also have access to the results in fairly short order through the "Session gallery" page.
