Topic 197294

I have four tasks running with a deadline in 20 minutes, and they all have between 1h and 2h left to finish. This is because I forgot BOINC suspended for several days, plus the fact that I don't leave my computer running overnight anymore.

Will I still get credit for them? And more importantly, will the result be used for the project's science or will it be ignored?

(If an admin could slightly bump the server-side deadlines for them, that would be ideal ;)

If you beat your new wingmen to completion and report those tasks before them, then yes you'll get credit.

In one of the tasks I'll likely beat my wingman. In the other three tasks the wingmen already returned their results. Oh well, I think I'll run them to completion anyway :)

Oh, I'll definitely make it then :) I missed the word 'new' in your previous message. Thanks for the info.
