Hi,

How is decided which account name is displayed in the user signature stats? These are my stats:
The nickname Fab36_Folding-Division@BOINC is very outdated. I used it for the Folding@Home BOINC beta test only.
Because the BOINC server of Folding is down, I can't change this nick. Is there any way to tell BOINCstats to use the account name of another project?

Thanks
Timo

Timo, do you have a BAM account?

If so you will find the option to change your signature name under the 'My BAM menu' on the left of the screen. BOINCstats : Signature I think.

HTH,

Hi,

thanks, this helps in some way, but doesn't in an other way. Let me explain.
In our forum, we've added a new feature to get the signatures of our crunchers smaller. You can see this feature here:
http://www.timosoft-software.de/stuff/p3dn/mydc.png
It's a popup menu which displays some details about the user's activities in our Distributed Computing team including the BOINCstats picture.
To have the picture displayed, all that users have to do is insert their BOINCstats ID in their profile. So I'm somewhat forced to use the BOINCstats picture that has the link

http://www.boincstats.com/signature/user_159306_banner.gif

The picture that can be corrected via BAM has the (different) link

http://boincstats.com/signature/user_banner_bam32648.gif


We can't change the feature of our forum to use the picture from BAM, because not all users have a BAM account. The remaining two options are:
1) Let the user specify the whole link to the stats instead just their ID. This would cause a mess to change this now that the feature has been activated and many members already have specified their ID. And that all for just me and maybe a dozen others.
2) Somehow make BOINCstats take the account name from another project. If this is not possible we'll have to consider option 1 or just live with it.
