I've noticed that WU's in my pending queue are being marked as "Unsent" and have remained so for several days. Are these WU's going to be re-allocated?

Collatz and Mini Collatz have a quorum of 2 which means someone else has to verify the work before credit is given. (You obviously understand that but not everyone does so I though I would reiterate that statement.)

The solo_collatz application has a quorum of 1 which means you get credit as soon as it is validated upon return.

Since solo_collatz only has GPU applications, my suggestion is to enable solo_collatz and disable collatz and mini_collatz. If you wish to run CPU applications as well, leave mini_collatz disabled but set "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" to Yes. That way, you will get solo collatz work for your GPU and you will get mini_collatz work for you CPU.

Why bother? Solo_collatz does internal validation which means the same number of computers can do almost double the work as they can on mini_collatz or collatz. So, it helps the project.

That having been said, if you look again, a number of the one in your pending list have been sent to a wingman for processing.

Thanks for that. I'll have a look at optimising my setup along those lines.
