Default Invalid Expirations

Hello All,

Can an admin fix a bunch of invalid expirations on my account?

On January 16th I received a bunch of bogus expirations. It seems like any factors found caused that exponent to be listed as expired. I shouldn't have any TF expirations at all. The assigned and expired dates are the same or only one day apart. Can my account be checked for other occurrences of this?

Here's the list of exponents that I know of:
500766061
500766589
500741207
500742679
500743171
500767307
500767507
500743939
500745439
500748883
500750059
500771627
500774789
500755733
500781227
500780383
...others?...

Also, there's odd behavior getting manual assignments in the 500-501 range. I set the desired exponent to 73, but it has been giving me 72-74 every time for a week or two. I've been doing the 72-74 TF's but would prefer to just get one range at a time as requested.

I think this is due to the assignments being so light that it's being assigned as TF to 74 instead of just 73. Also, you will be assigned the exponent until you turn in any results. This means you can get assigned an exponent to factor to 74 for example, and factor it to 80. As long as you don't turn it in halfway through you will still be assigned the exponent. Same goes for factoring it lower if it's giving you 72-74, if you only want to factor to 73 for whatever reason you can just change the 72-74 to 72-73. When you turn in this factored to 73 result you should be unassigned the exponent. (I don't think Primenet keeps track of exponents being assigned to factor higher than just the next range, allowing you to only factor to 73 and turning in the result.)


Edit: I don't know about the expiration's though, but it seems you were credited for the results and factors found, so assuming you're not factoring higher than the factor found you should be good. (You'll still be credited GHz-Days if you do end up factoring above a found factor, and it doesn't matter if you have the exponent assigned or not.)
Edit2: Just realised I'm doing 72-74 Factoring on sub 500M exponents (499M) :)
