Hi,
I'm not sure how the deadline is counted. I can't find it now but there was written somewhere on the website that the deadline is extended at 50% for every day-after-day when your computer crunches. So if I crunched for 4 days and my deadline was 10.09 why on 13.09 is "too late for validate"? I'd really like to understand it.
I'm sorry for mistakes, I'm not native.

That's quite simple: the deadline is 5 days for the GPU workunits.

You're mixing two different things here:
The daily quota of tasks is increased by 1 after every successful task.
The granted credit has 50% bonus for returning the result within 1 day.
The granted credit has 25% bonus for returning the result within 2 days.

There is no limit however, it doesn't make a difference because as soon as you send an errored unit the number will come crashing down to 10
