I signed up a bit more than two weeks ago, but during all that time only 64 tasks were sent to some of my 8 machines, all of which got returned after churning, and only 56 of them got any credits since 8 of them ended up with a computation error, receiving 0 credits. All that work collected just 54.68 RAC for a total of 987 credits. And, when I try to create a profile, it says "To prevent spam, an average credit of 100 or greater is required to create or edit a profile. We apologize for this inconvenience."

That is a bit frustrating. All of the other 40+ projects I am churning for and created a profile for either didn't have that limit, or had a limit based on total credits (many just 1 credit, i.e. you have run and returned at least 1 WU), not RAC. Clearly someone with 8 machines and 987 credits is not a spammer, and using 100 RAC as the bar to entry while not sending out WUs is a bit overly protective.

Thanks for listening
