Do you mean user ID? It is given under your name in your post: ID: 134654
This same number is given as account number under "Your account".

Sorry, I don't understand what you really need.
As far as I know, we have an account ID which is the same as account number, we have an account key which can be send by e-mail if needed, we have a cross project ID and we have a password which can be changed by using this form.

Your cross-project ID is located near the bottom of the your account page, which is on the web page.

Classic had a user id, which I could find back in the user_info.sah file of the Seti@Home program.
Unfortunately I don't know any other place or website where you would be able to find it back.

Classic had also a password. This password was send by e-mail.

Unfortunately, the webpage to get your Classic password, although still available, isn't returning your password anymore as the database of Seti Classic has been shut down.

Do you mean before Boinc? If so that was a password and was unique and only recoverable thru the links already provided by others.

It is possible to log in with your account number (it can be found in account_*.xml for any given project).

Your account number appears in public all over the place. Yours is 8219284. Your account key on the other hand is an authenticator that appears only in a few places. You should NEVER tell anyone what your account key is. It appears in the "I forgot my password" email, in the project database, and on your computers HD in a couple of different places. You also have two Cross Project Identifiers. The private one appears only on your HD and in projects databases. The public one appears on third party stats sites and your account web page on each project you are attached to.
