Comments on the following newsitem

BOINCstats classic has been lingering around for those not getting used to the new layout. However, as I have said before, I'm no longer maintaining the code for it and it's beginning to show its age. To keep up with all the security risks (and bugs) I would have to maintain two separate code bases and besides not having the time for it, I just don't want to.

So, starting in June, BOINCstats classic will redirect to the current BOINCstats, meaning of course that it will no longer be available.

Dear Willy.
I can understand your reasoning about security issues and your personal feelings towards the additional workload.
But: Boincstats classic is working without any shitty third-party scripts being allowed while the new Boincstats doesn't work without them at all.
Please reconsider this, or make sure those third-party scripts won't be needed, by implementing their functionality directly on your system.
Anyway, thank you for your work so far which really made my Boincing quite comfortable!

So the old site is going away. How do we delete / remove / disable our accounts? Speaking about security issues, how do we change our passwords, for that matter?

I still used BOINCstats classic. It was perfect version of website and new version is very far from comfortable usage. So it is very sad, that classic version is not working anymore. By the way, I understand, that the world does not stand still and You need to do that, we we will adapt to the new version somehow...

Thank You for all things You do here.

How can we tell if one is using the classic version or the new one? The reason I am asking is that my stats are no longer showing the correct credit details or for example Amicable Numbers is missing as well as numerous others and my total are showing -sign each day. I changed my name from Cruncher Pete for peronal reason due to scamming and I changed my Password as well. For the past week I used all my machines to runch all projects hoping that it will align soon.

Ahh...I didn't see this post before. Yes the classic version in my opinion is far superior to the newer version. I dread using the newer version as it is much slower to use in an unnecessary manner. I understand the newer pages may look better on mobile but I feel the majority of people using BAM are probably not doing it from a phone nor tablet. The newer version is bad enough that I would probably stop using BAM altogether.

The classic one is using, the new one
If you just use it defaults to www.

Too bad, as the "Classic" version was much more usable than the new site. It's a shame...

Apart from the need to allow scripts from only I see the main functional advantage in the smaller amount of clicking which was needed to get things done.
But, while not being as comfortable to handle, the new(er) Boincstats GUI is as easy to understand as the classic one.
