As you can see that, the credit granted for each WU of SCThreads is locked to 8.00! I remembered that this was because of a validation problem occured long long time ago... I think this is not your and the validator's initial purpose. So could you fix this problem sometime in the future? Thanks a lot!

Yes, that is right, currently, each completed work unit abtains 8 credit, because each workunit of SCThread take about the same FLOPS (about 3400GFLOS) which is equivalent to 8 credit according to the BOINC credit system. However, we are going to replace SCThreader soon with its next generation application TreeThreader, and we will readjust the credit mechanism!
