When I enter a correct turk and press the key, another turk appears but no credit is awarded nor is a 'correct solution' tag shown (nor an 'incorrect' tag). When I enter it and press the submit button using the mouse pointer, no problems.

Edit: A tab after the entry moves things so that the <Enter> key works...but this wasn't necessary before?

I cannot reproduce this. It is working fine for me, using Firefox 2.0.0.11 on a Mac. What browser are you using? Is this a recent problem? I've not made any changes to the input form, only the credit accounting.

I am using IE 7.0.5730.11 on Win XP Pro (32-bit) on my notebook. It is the same machine that I used to get 3/4 of the BOINC-Turk credits and the error only started today (though because I was out of town and away from internet access, I had not been able to Turk for about a week). I have also verified this with my home desktop using the same IE version (I also have an old copy of Netscape 8.0.3.4 on that machine, and it works without the problem). I wonder if an IE update in the last few days might be the culprit? Anyone got an un-updated version to test?

I replicated it on IE7/XP Pro. The computer was updated with Decembers updates. That's the last time.

If you turk with hitting the enter key rather than clicking submit, you don't see the correct/incorrect screen.

Same behavior on IE6/XP Pro.

Firefox works fine with XP Pro and Fedora.

I've noticed it too and described on the main Turk thread. Using IE7.
