Hi there
I have noticed that from one day to another, the number of valid tasks decreases.
The total credit score does not but the number of tasks in my board is sometimes reduced.
How does it works ?

Valid tasks only remain on display for about 24 hours after validation. Or at least that's what is meant to happen. Sometimes they get removed from display earlier (very rare), and sometimes later (rare). However they never get removed from the huge database in the background or from your records, unless there is a database fault, or a very serious problem with the validation process is identified.

As Rob said, once a task is validated it only remains in your task list for 24hrs.

Cheers.
