Looks like back in the day I changed my WCG username at some point and ended up with 2 listing on here with the same CPID - http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/user/detail/213432/overview and http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/user/detail/212869.

Any way to get those merged, or at least drop the inactive one so my stats are updating with current numbers?

Thank you for your time!

There's no way the two WCG accounts you linked to could have the same CPID, as they are two totally separate accounts. If you mean that one of them shares a CPID with other projects and you'd like to sync the higher-credit one with those, that is possible. You'll have to align the WCG account you want to "keep" with your other projects, by using the same username, email and password that you do for BAM, and request that BAM reset your CPID on the "Main account page". Once the account information is lined up, it SHOULD even fix itself after a while. Just note that WCG does not play terribly well with BAM, so you may get some error messages here on the site but they shouldn't affect what you're trying to do since the changes you would be making will ultimately be pulled from BOINCstats, which aggregates stats from the projects themselves.

Merging two accounts would have to be done at the project end since BOINCstats is just collecting data from them, and I've not heard of any projects yet that allow this.

As a way to prevent this sort of thing from happening in the future, if you are using BAM you can change your account information once--at BAM, and it will be distributed to the other projects. WCG may need a manual change, because of the reason stated previously.

Not to be difficult, but did you actually go to the links I posted? Two different WCG accounts of mine with different user IDs - and the SAME CPID.

So, any idea how to fix that? Or at least have BoincStats pointing at and counting the active account rather than the inactive one? BAM is already pulling in the right one for my client.

The CPID is calculated by the BOINC client (nothing to do with BOINCstats) from the email address, not from the userID.

It's been something else non-standard about WCG, I've asked about it some time ago in their forum there about 4 years ago, as an follow-up to the same question here in this thread.

In short: No way to get them together
