This goes for both S@H Enhanced, and AP's. I have lots of "Validation inconclusive" tasks, and that in itself isn't so strange. But they're never sent to a third computer, since most, if not all of them just sits there with the third result having the status "unsent", and have been so in many cases for days, or weeks now.

The same goes for tasks that the wingman doesn't complete at all, for other reasons, like timing out or error out. They do not get sent to a third computer either, but sits there as "unsent" too for what seems to be days and days, if not forever.

That's the main reason why my "Validation pending", as well as "Validation inconclusive" grows to levels I haven't see before.

Could we please get those "unsent" tasks delivered to a third computer?

These unsent tasks go to the back of the que, and there are something like 616,000 tasks in front (because of the splitter throttles getting stuck open),
i believe there is an option to bring unvalidated tasks to the front of the cue to speed validation, (probably a Scheduler option)

Oh my G. If the unsent goes to the back of the que, and only gets sent again when a large proportion of the 616K tasks have been sent out, then we're screwed. Considering how few we are, who are doing Beta testing, it will take forever to finish the tasks that's waiting for a third result.

The unsent tasks need to go to the front of the que, or the Beta testing will take until the next century :-)


Thanks for explaining how it works, even though how it works is deeply troubling here on Beta. On main though, with so many more participants, it wouldn't be such a big issue.

I think that in effect there are separate queues for MB v7, AP v6, and MB v7 Large, so the "forever" case will only apply to regular MB v7. Some AP tasks which have been sent in the last few hours have ResultIDs above 12450900 and the last task created for the MB v7 unthrottled episode was 12442334.
