Hello

In my case about 600 correct tasks are 180 incorrect. I see that in others it is similar - a lot of incorrect tasks. In each of over 100 projects I have not seen a long erroneous task, and in BURP it is terrible.
What could be the reason for this?

It's a project that is based on work contributed from the community, and there are a lot of variables that one can select when preparing a Blender session for rendering... As Blender continues to develop, there's always a bit of a learning curve with new versions of the software, and new features. So, there are bound to be some bugs and things that need to be worked out. This is a rather organic project; things change a lot on both sides of the equation, and everything is run by volunteers. Stability can suffer as a result, but there's a policy of making sure that everyone gets credit for work completed, regardless of validation result.

If this is correct, can you please explain why all those finished, but not correct results have no credits? I have several of those, and as I can see other machines also got no credit for finishing but not having a pleasant/wanted/optimal/whatever result.

Thanks.
