Message 102885 - Posted: 8 Feb 2021, 18:30:22 UTC - in response to Message 102879.  

I am sure Richard or Jord among others could say why it is -1 rather than 0 which to my mind would make more sense.

Because 0 is set when you set No New Tasks, or don't choose to run that application's tasks, or some other reason. It's the value set in the database. By setting it to -1 the server knows this is an outlier and to ignore the host when it asks for work. The user, seeing -1 should find this such a weird number that he approaches helpers on forums. Who will then tell him his errant ways.
