I've raised the limit in the DB for VERYLONG WUs. I'm not sure whether such changes propagate to clients at some time.

An update: we have been freeing up space since Sunday night. The resolution is not instantaneous because:

1. deleting huge amount of files is slow
2. as soon as files are deleted, the freed up space is used by newly uploaded WUs.

So, please don't worry if things take some time to go back to normality.

The increase in required space is partly due to new WU types (e.g. the CPU experiments).

Addition of HD space has been of course considered, but with the current server it is sadly not possible for hardware reasons.

Believe it or not, dedicated people are working on the overworked server regardless of the time of the day. When the disk is full it takes time even to delete files.

Most pending WUs should be fixed. :)

In the last weeks the server has not been sending mails to anybody. We are working to fix it.

Edit. Should be solved.

A side effect of putting CPU contributions in the paper badges (something I would consider natural) would be that CPU-only users will be numerous but rank low - therefore pushing up GPU users. Not sure it is a bad problem.

No, the WU was not cancelled. It seems a case of "Client detached [7]". I have no clue about the cause.

Some discussions pointed to "cpid mismatch" and the use of account managers.

There are three distinct types of badges:

- Donor badges
- Scientific publications badges
- Level badges

The Volunteers page explains how these badges are awarded (section Recognition Badges). Please see also this thread.
