Hello!
My first post here. I've been using boinc for quite some time and have attached it to bam on all of my machines. However...
Recently, bam is not finding my world community grid project. I'm not sure how to go about linking the two accounts together as when I click find account on the bam website, I get wrong password despite it being the same as every other project. I also note that WCG requires a username, not email, and my username is different on wcg than it is on bam. Does this make a difference?
yWould this have anything to do with CPID on WCG being different how can I find this?

WCG has difficulties with BAM, it's been a long time since I got it attached so I probably can't tell you the sure-fire techniques; hopefully someone else who's done it more recently can chime in.

I believe the usernames need to match to align.

Hi,
Can I change my bam username to reflect this without losing all my stats? The current username I'm using is already taken in WCG.
thanks!

Yes, just make sure you do it through the "Main account page" at BAM, then the changes will also be made at the projects you're attached to automatically.
