My Android is in the Work preference, which should not be using the "store at least" options, as they are blank (0). It is still using the default, which has settings for the "store at least". The other problem is default should not have these settings and should be at 0, since that is my default set on the reset of my projects and should be followed over from the latest project change, which is a different project than CSG.

So, for some reason the Computing preferences are broke in multiple ways.

I verified my Cross-ID is the same, and that I am connected to multiple projects across different items that should automatically pass this information into CSG.

Hi PB,
Is it possible that Citizen Science Grid was not yet linked to your Subsetsum account? (drop down menu under your name)
Looking at your stats, CSG is not listed as a project. Only Subsetsum is listed as a "retired" project , which is how the 3 projects were merged: each project was retired but the totals were added to CSG. The CSG would have been seen (on your stat site) as a current project and had any credits previously earned would show on your stat.
http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/user/detail/1928/projectList

Edit: I see on second look that you have only an android device tied to CSG.
When I looked at "Computing Preference" page, it says:

These settings apply to all computers using this account except

_ computers where you have set preferences locally using the BOINC Manager
_ Android devices


** could either of these be the cause? (I'm only good for two guesses.)

JJ,

Good to see you here.

I now see what you say, but that is odd. How are you supposed to set global preferences for an Android, then? No other project does that, I use the Work Preference for my Android on all projects it has been on, and the settings worked just fine. I control other systems under the other 3 groups.

I think this needs fixing here, since it works other projects.

Worse yet, I set default not to download extra work (so none of my preferences have download extra work), but the Android is still continuing to download extra work. I do not like to hold onto extra work and wish this to be changed.

So, currently this project cannot be used as a backup project on Android. It is all or nothing. I was trying to use it this way, since the project I was working on was out of work, but now it has work, I cannot get any because this project has demanded all of the time for my device. This is wrong and needs to be fixed.
