I am a newer BOINCstats user, but I have participated in some older distributed computing projects in my life (Project RC5 & SETI@Home). I registered for 7 projects about 2 weeks ago & have 27 BOINC engines setup directly to most of these projects. I wanted to try BOINCstats as their Account Managers to have more command & control, but I can't seem to clear these Incorrect Password errors on every single project on BOINCstats. If I check my credentials & credit on these projects, they are valid & continue to connect my latest engine tonight. I didn't want to rush the process. It's been this way about 5 days now, so I'm wondering if any other known issues exist with the Find Account function on these projects on BOINCstats?

The projects are: Einstein@Home, ClimatePrediction, Rosetta@Home, Universe@Home & World Computing Grid. I also plan to do Milkyway@Home & PrimeGrid once this functionality is working.

The attached image appears truncated on the forums, but if you go directly to the Image.. you can see what I am seeing. I zoomed out to get a wider view.

My passwords for these projects are NOT all the same, and they are actually complex. They are between 10-15 characters long, if that matters. It would be my understanding now that people may use the same password across all projects. I did not opt-in to that approach. I don't mind the copy/paste for complex passwords.

Thank you for what you do! Please let me know if you need any more information.

You could try to use your Boincstats password for all of these (or at least one for a try) in order to hopefully get them attached this way and afterwards set the complex passwords again from Boincstats.
I haven't used this new feature myself, but that's my idea about what might help.

This should work now. Please try it and let me know the result.
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.
