My account shows I have a total credit of 766.57, (or at least it did when I reported this). At the same time, my results show I have been granted credit for 7 wu's all of which had less then 100 credit granted.

Am I missing something obvious here, or is someone else!

Arithmetic error?

Result records are deleted after some time. Most likely one or more of your results were deleted.

Good theory but no cigar yet.

Good theory but no cigar yet. If you follow the link to my account, you will see my join date is 21/2/2005 if you look at the results, you can see the date sent of the first one is the very same 21/2/2005.

Unless the deleting of old results is some random wu's rather then the oldest first, in which case the question is why?

They delete based upon the date that the canonical result was able to be established, which would normally be the date that the 3rd successful result was returned. I think it's still set for 1 week after this date that it deletes.

If you look at your oldest result showing, the canonical result for it wouldn't have been able to be established until Mar 3, even though you returned it on Feb 24. That result will delete soon - as today is 1 week now for that one. If you returned a result on Feb 25 or 26, for example, and you were the 3rd person to return it, the canonical result would have been established on that day - and it would have been deleted by now.
