Today I noticed my username is no longer "Martin's Lighthouse 2", now it's just "Martin". :(

My account name has always been "Martin" in BOINC's messages (as far back as I can check - Jan 09), but always displayed correctly on the web and in the on-line stats web pages

Any idea what might have happened?

Can I rename/change myself back?

Martin

Of course, just go to your Account and click "Change other account info". However, be sure not to change your email address, because that would mess up your statistics.

OK, that was easy enough. It's knowing what you can or can't change without messing things up that I've never really had a good grasp of.

Thanks for your help!

Much appreciated.
