Post Pending Credit?

I've been working my way around the BOINC website and my account page on it, and have been watching something called "pending credit". I understand the concept but I have a massive amount of pending credit that is growing daily, right now its at about 1,400 and a couple days ago was sitting around 850. Is this a problem on my end or the project (SZTAKI) end? Or is this normal to have so much pending credit? Is there anything I need to change in my settings? I love the competitive aspect of crunching, and needless to say having +1,400 credits held back is a pretty big hindrance... :|

First of all Welcome to team USA (that is if you have joined the team on your projects). The way that most Boinc projects work is that the same work unit is sent to 2 - 4 crunchers, when each finishes the work unit it is uploaded and marked as pending. When a quorum of participants return the same result, it is validated, and then everyone who returned the common result is awarded points.

I do not crunch for that project, but it is not unusual depending on how long work units take to run for it to take some days to get validated.

Ah i see! I didn't realize that the same work units were sent out to multiple people. It's the only project I'm running right now, I just got started and figured it would be simpler to get familiar with everything while only running one project, and it constantly has work. I'll be adding more soon though!

yep, pending credits are completely normal for some projects. however, not all projects have a "pending credit" system. rosetta@home grants instant credit!
