very less points shown

Post by cyclops » Thu Apr 25, 2019 10:15 am

Hello,
I started 2 days back ... and right now I am at about 12th work unit ... each time I was shown that i will receive an estimated 8500+- points per unit ... and about estimated 50,000+- points per day ... but even after 12 units my stats shows only 6,789 points ... I was reading somewhere that after 10th unit things shoot up but its 12th unit now
One mistake did happen somewhere half a way that i used right username but wrong password ... which i corrected ... still about 40k to 50k points should have been accumulated by now ... am i doing something wrong?
Please Enlighten.

Register for a passkey and install it on the same screen where you entered your FAH name and (optional) team number. Then complete 10+ WUs.

Looking up your username I see that two different passkeys have been used. One shows 3 WU's returned and not eligible for bonus points. The other passkey shows 14 WU's returned and is eligible for the bonus.

Also, checking recent returns from your systems, some of the WU's returned were from the NaCl client for Google Chrome. Those WU's do not get any bonus. Only WU's processed using the regular F@h client on either your CPU or GPU get bonus points for quick return - QRB.

Thanks everyone for your reply ... I see after about 14 units (3 or 4 must be that wrong password) ... my points are increasing
Regards
