I don't know why, seems my units increased but points very little if at all!?

Check these after some more units...

204,747 PaulC 25,678 39

Good place to post mine for checking too...

I check in every now and then - by taking a quick look at the temperatures as shown in the menubar (Ubuntu 18.4.4). In the range 20-25C, no folding, in the range 40-45C folding.

I'm not interested in points so much. It's all about the WUs.

RedF... I was just thinking that points must be based on difficulty of the units is all.

I think you're right, BD. The speed with which your machine finishes a WU is a prime factor. My slow dog just chews patiently … :)

Finally I can see what project I am working on... Project Project 13851... "These are simulations of NSP9 from SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2." In the short time I have been doing this, it seems that I have been on more than 2 "projects." No idea how many because the local client access was not functioning for several days.

Whereas in the beginning, my numbers and what the team page showed were in sync. Now that are way, way of of sync. My local client page says I have 204,510 points with 29,163 going to the team. My individual stats page says the same number of "points" with 203 work units. It also says I have "sent" the team 29,163 and 45 work units. The TEAM stats page says I am credited with 25,678 and 39 work units.

HOWEVER, on my individual stats page they list a bunch of teams... none of which I signed up for. I'm getting the feeling that despite the fact I wanted all my output credited to my team, they are disturbing my work around to a bunch of random teams. The RC-64 project, which I worked on for quite a while, did not do that. Can't say that I am overjoyed at this... what's the point of actually having a team when three quarters of what I do goes elsewhere. At least, I now seem to be on the research that is most beneficial these days.

PaulC, are you running more than one Instance, or on more than one Machine?

Did you ever sell a Mac in the past with FaH running?

Paulc, if I understand you correctly, then I can quote what might be a similar situation. When I click on my name, under the 'Identity' heading in the main window of FAHControl, I'm sent to a page with 9 instances of my chosen name. Other than the one that corresponds to me, the others show that they have contributed nothing for a long time. The dates of last work unit are blank …
…except for one that says the date of the last work unit was '2020-03-27 12:10:08'. That, I believe is today's date. However 'Active Clients' are shown as zero for both 50 and 7 days.

An intriguing puzzle.

At any rate, it might not be the case that your points are being shared out with other users and their teams. It would be a bit irksome if that were the case, though.

Maybe I misunderstood your post?

No, never had or sold a machine running FaH, my 2010 I GOT in 2010! Yes I see a paulc on the first link but not on the following 2 teams. BUT it shows way less of the "missing" contributions to xlr8. I've done 210 WUs, xlr8 says they got 47, that other paulc got 9.

Might be an idea to get a passcode as MB explained... maybe that can better tie me to our team! Now to figure out how to do that... oh, very simple, I'm set with a passcode.

Project is now 13860 but that is still focused on COVID, so that is very good.

RodF, yeah I wondered what that list of multiple teams was all about, indeed it LOOKS like my WUs were being allocated to multiple teams, when in fact when I set it up from the beginning to be xlr8 as my team of choice. I NOW see in the web based local client that my "points" were reset to zero. I see that my passcode is in there (I tried the change identity, and it had a passcode obscured but I assume it was the one they had sent me which I HAD entered into the app client).

I have a sneaky feeling this won't change my stats page, it will show that I sent WUs to those other teams. Only a few of those listed actually show contributions by me (no clue why it shows teams I never contributed to)... I know "me" not so much by the name but also the overall rank. BUT going forward my expectation is that everything I do IS fully credited to xlr8 and only xlr8!

I think all PaulC accounts share the same rank, the passcode just lets them know who to credit for the winning fold, it doesn't break your stats out different from the other PaulC accounts.
