Message 14173 - Posted: 6 Aug 2004, 0:42:52 UTC

I am converting from SETI classic to BOINC. I registered my new account without realizing that you copied the old database of accounts. Now when I try and get my old credits, it states that it cannot create thenew account with my old credits because that email is in use with a new account.

I know that was stupid, but is there any way to delete my new account so I can migrate my old??

Thanks

I don't think you can delete the new account, but you can change the email address that is associated with it. If you change it to something else, I would think you could then use the original email address to activate the old account.

That was a great idea. It seemed to work..I got a slightly different account number, but my old credits did not show up. Thanks for your help.

The S@H1 credits only show up on your own page, no place else.
