Hey BOINCstats.com - you guys are the best. I've only been participating in shared network computing for about 6 months, and I am totally hooked! I think I visit your site about 10 times a day to check out my progress.

Anyway, I think I have a bug to report, or at least need some newbie guidance. Predictor@Home recently opened up its user registration, and I have been happily gobbling the few work units I receive. However, on your BOINC overall stats listing, my account comes up as two entries instead of just one - Both are identically named, and I joined using the same client that is running my other 4 projects. Same process, same name - just that the Predictor stats aren't being compiled with my other stats.

Anything I can do to make the stats report join my stats together?

Oh well. I guess I am just a newbie... Since the answer is written in big bold print on the homepage:

To make the combined BOINC stats accurate, it is important to
use the exact same email address for your user account and the exact same name for your team account in all BOINC projects!

My former university revoked my email address between my BOINC start, and my Predictor account creation. Didn't even occur to me that I started using a new email address....

Okay, so I thought I figured out my own problem, but perhaps not...

I edited my account on all 5 projects that I belong to so that they have the same email address. Is there a time period before your server pulls the new email addresses and consolidate the stats? Or are the stats that were recorded with the old email addresses forever split off from the rest?

The CPID is exported by the projects, and picked up by BOINCstats. It will take some time before you have one account.

Ah... Patience is a virtue. I will watch for the stats to recombine.


Thanks Willy, you are the man. Your site makes BOINC worthwhile.

since predictor has come back online and i joined einstein, i have duplicate entries for accounts. the same email address is used for all accounts.

i used to have a different email address for CPDN. so when my name "octagon" is entered. 3 entries appear. CPDN now only uses i email address.

Willy can you sort this out?
