It's all in this nearby thread :-

TLDR;
Collatz is being flooded with bad tasks by somebody trying to get more points than they are truly due.
This is affecting the validator which appears to be invalidating most tasks.
I've switched to amicable numbers while the admins sort it out.
Unfortunately I didn't notice for a couple of days so have had several hundred tasks invalidated.
Your mileage may vary. :-(
