As of this writing there are 132605 jobs on the server and they all appear to have a 6 hour turnaround time. I'm interested in this project which is why I volunteer, but my computers have other uses and projects as well. I'd suggest that if your researchers can't plan ahead enough to find their way out of a paper bag, or you really need that 6 hr turnaround, then you better plan on buying dedicated computer time somewhere and stop abusing your volunteers' charity.

Mindmodeling has always had a short deadline, regardless on the number of jobs. Some jobs, including some current ones, give you a few days but have a higher crunch time. I think the shorter ones where they only give you 2-3 hours is a bug however.

I will take care of the short turn around time. The turn around time at this point should still be 5 days.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Thanks for supporting us and happy crunching,

Brandon

We identified the bug and pushed out a fix.

You should see new workunits return back to a normal deadline.

Thank you for your support and happy crunching,

Brandon
