I'd like to see a reset button added for the web based preferences, which would restore previously adjusted BOINC/SETI settings back to their default values.

The reason?

Well, I've thoroughly played with the web based settings and can't remember what most of them originally were...

A reset button would be a useful.

Are you talking about the Computing preferences or the Project (SETI@home) preferences? The settings for the forum and community already has a reset button.

Yes, I know.

I was actually referring directly to the Computing preferences. There's no reason why a reset button shouldn't be added to the Project (SETI@home) preferences as well though.

It's a bit strange that something as inconsequential as forum settings have a reset, but fairly complex preferences which dictate how BOINC actually works don't.

Ok, I created a ticket ([754]) for your suggestion.

Well, when I wrote the forum prefs page the other two pages were already slated for a revamp. They haven't been improved yet, but we'll get there eventually. At the moment they are tied into the milestones set for the 6.4.x release. So theoretically you'll see some changes relatively soon - no promises, though, lots of stuff going on.
