Hello, I'm new to this project.
I just recently installed BoinC, and currently, my computer has completed around 16 tasks for the 321 Sieve subproject.
However, I was wondering how to receive work from other subprojects such as the prime search ones. I had updated my preferences accordingly an hour ago by checking a few of the prime search subprojects, but have not yet received any work from them.
Is it because that there isn't any or because of my low credit?

I feel like it would be more appropriate if I moved my concerns to help.

Hello, and welcome!
I see some SGS, TRP, and 321 tasks assigned to your computer that are in progress. Can you see them?
Also, to ensure best performance, please go to your BOINC manager (always set it in advanced view), options, and computing preferences. Then, set CPU time to 100% and at the bottom, set "store x days of work" and "store x days of additional work" to both 0.
Why? This gives you 0 cache, which means you'll only get a task after you finish the former. Why is this helpful? PrimeGrid uses the double check scheme to ensure every residue is confirmed to be "correct". If you turn your tasks in later than your wingman, you'll be the double-checker of the prime, which in most people's opinions is not cool.
