Is there any chance we will have an opportunity to add RAC in our sigs instead of BSrac? Maybe to have it as optional so that user can choose BSrac or RAC for her/his sig?

Perheps to include this option in BAM! -> Signature area, next to the options Show rank percentage (No Yes), Show flag (No Yes), and Show donor crown (No Yes). The option could be... Show RAC or BSrac (RAC BSrac).

I totaly agree. BS-Rac is pretty much annoying in the signature especially if you switch between projects often.

It almost renders the stats in the signature useless.

I would like to have a simpler signature that doesn't show RAC or BSrac. Most people outside the BOINC community have no idea what these terms mean, or even what BOINC is. I only do one project (SETI@Home) and I would like my signature to show my updated stats for that project in much the same way that the project certificate shows them:

username has contributed _______ credits/work units/cobblestones (equal to ______ quadrillion floating point operations) in support of projectname.

I think this could help build interest in our projects from those who are not familiar with them. (I tend to ignore signatures that I don't understand -- like it's an inside joke that I'm not included in.) I know how to construct a text signature and add a link or image to it, but I have no idea how to extract my stats to display them in the format I want.

Is this even possible? I tried using/editing the project certificate html, but you must be logged in to view it, which won't work as an email sig. Can anyone help me with this please? Thanks.

BTW, BOINCstats and the whole BAM! project is fantastic. I'm just amazed at all that you do with all of this data. It's awesome!

That's exactly why I don't use a BOINC signature outside of the BAM and project forums. If you are trying to spread the word about the projects, I doubt any stats type of signature is going to generate interest; rather, the signature should describe what the project(s) do and what your contribution means, possibly also why you chose those project(s).

If somebody makes a design for a new signature, I'll see if I can fill it with the correct data.
