If you complete a project well in time and it cannot upload due to a known server problem with the project servers and you past the report deadline and it is still in upload status do you lose all the credits as it will eventually report late?
thanks

You should get any credit due, if you report the work before any reissues do,

thanks

although if the project does not do it, then it would would be a good idea to detatch from it.

Then everyone will have that problem and the project will really know about it and give people extra time. I'm thinking you're talking about the Einstein project, right? Well, since they have a fileserver problem, no one can upload, download or report. Their whole project is off line, so deadlines don't really matter at that point.

You may even have to hope they still have the data of what they sent out to everyone by the time they get back. There's a good possibility that they don't.

So why don't you sit back and let BOINC handle it?

If it isn't Einstein, then please do tell what project you do have the problem with.
