Happily Collatz has been included again and I have resumed. :-)

Today https://gridcoinstats.eu/project/ shows that :-

Excluded Projects Not available for Reward

Collatz Conjecture Webpage 2018-08-19


My Gridcoin magnitude has dropped from 30 to 8 even though I am producing >2,500,000 in Collatz. :-(

Sadly I am switching away from Collatz for a few days or until this is resolved.

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. :-(
