I've been a S@h user since June 1999. Over the years, I've had a number of computers running S@h... Each usually having it's own account. When the switch to BOINC is complete, and the original S@h isn't being used anymore, I would like to be able to combine all my credited WUs to my main account. That way, I'll have full credit for my nearly 15634 WUs and 19.1114 years of computing, rather than just the 158 from my original account, on a computer that died a year after joining.

Over the years I also had several computers running seti, but always used the same email address for all of them. I doubt that they would combine all the diff addresses, if they did that for all 5 million users....

Five million users, or accounts? I alone have fifteen accounts. I would think they'd love to combine all those into one line in the database.

There used to be an option to transfer your WUs to another account... So it's not like they'd have to develop anything new. It was taken out when some users found out have to pad their accounts.
TTFN,
