A small bug in the validator has been fixed. This should reduce the number of correct results that were being marked as invalid. Thanks to Steffen Grunewald for spotting and fixing this.

Will the valid results marked as invalid be corrected or is it from this point forward only? I ask because I have only 1 invalid result with 0 credit and wonder if this is what might have happened. http://einsteinathome.org/task/1188600

Unfortunately it's just from this point forward. The validator does a complex set of operations on the user, host, result and workunit database, and I simply don't know how to undo it.

I'm sure you'll get lots of validated results: please just be patient!
