Dear all,

Lately, I've been detecting that every few days, I lose a lot of credits in the WCG project. The first thing that I did was to check my credits directly from the WCG website. And I've seen some strange information.

1) My world position in the project doesn't match between the BoincStats website and the WCG website. For instance, today I've got the 8.554 World Position for this project on the BoincStats website but I've got the 7.878 World Position on the WCG website. 676 positions of mismatch! (The world position is a parameter independent of the credits conversion between WCG and Boinc and would be similar in both websites).

2) If a use a conversion factor of 7 between WCG statistics and BoincStats statistics I confirm that it apparently works today (today I haven't a credit loss in BoincStats). I checked the difference in credits from yesterday and today on both websites. In WCG the difference is 75.642 credits and in BoincStats is 10.806 credits. Perfect!! (75.642 / 7 = 10.806). But today, my total credit on the WCG website is 59.417.037 ( 59.417.037 / 7 = 8.488.148) and the total credit on the BoincStats website is 6.927.049. 1.561.099 credits mismatch! (for weeks I've been losing credits every few days and maybe this mismatching 1.561.099 credits are due of that).

This is the situation. I'm crunching with a Raspberry Pi, a Windows laptop and lately with some Google Colab virtual machines (Can be the last ones the origin of this problem?)

Thanks in advance for any help or clarification.

Dear all,

I'm updating this thread with only a simple question:

I have got 70,485,708 points on the WCG website but BoincStats shows only 8,125,061.13 credit points. I thought there was a conversion factor of 7 between WCG and Boincstats (70,485,708 / 7 = 10.069.387) so the figures don't match.

Where is the mistake? My rationale or the Boincstats figures?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Dear all,

I have got the answer in the WCG help pages (https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/help/topic.s?shortName=points). I put here the answer for your knowledge.

"Why are points on the agent and the web different?
World Community Grid in the past ran two types of agents. A United Devices (UD Windows) agent and a BOINC (Windows/Linux/Mac) agent. Today, World Community Grid only runs the BOINC agent. Points contributed by both of the agents will be part of a member's total on the website. However, only points contributed by BOINC agents will be shown on the BOINC agents. The points previously earned by a UD agent only appear on the website. Additionally, due to differences in how the agents computed points, BOINC points are multiplied by 7 when they are imported into the website. Thus if you earned 5 BOINC points, you will see 35 website points."
