Disappearing Results

The results get purged/deleted from the database after they got validated and given everyone credit. It doesn't keep tabs on the amount of results you have crunched, only the credits you got in return. So it's quite normal to see your results list shrinking at times.

It just means you have gotten credit, as did everyone else who returned/reported that result. The database then no longer needs to keep tabs on it, it moves the science to the science database and the "shells" so to say get deleted.
