I have several 16t work units that have been credited to my 8t stats. My tasks page clearly shows over 32,000 points in 16t work but my breakdown on my profile page lists the credit under 8t work.

I moved some 16t workunits to the 8t application, therefore they are credited as 8t application.

Well they took 16 threads to run and are listed as 16t units, not 8t, everywhere except the stats.

seriously? So, what's the point of having settings for 8t, 16t, etc... while you just move stuffs you need to wherever.
People CHOSE the threads they want to run, because they want to earn credit for what they CHOSE.
I was looking to run some Yafu for my team, but then I saw this. Sorry, not gonna waste my resources.

I don't believe that 16t tasks are credited as 8t or vice versa.
If I move tasks from 16t to 8t, then it is an 8t task, it can be chosen as 8t and will be credited as 8t.
Don't see a reason why it should be different.

The main BOINC forums explained that BOINC Credit New system works well on floating point but not well on integer-only calculations.
I think the oddity of Credit New is the issue here and it's out of Yoyo's hands.
