We took the occasion of the server upgrade to simplify the credit calculations. In practice, the change was very minor (a few %), and we rounded (usually up) existing WUs.

The "fast turnaround" bonuses are unchanged (+50% 1d, +25% 2d). Probably the web pages now display the *total* (bonus included) credit.

People can still work out the credit a task gets (150%, 125% or 100%) from the sent and reported times.

So the NATHAN_FA5's were overvalued by ~600 credits before the upgrade?

It is not possible to say if the old or the new credit figure was more correct, as the # of floating point operations performed by a WU is known only within a margin of error.
