Is there a reason why World Community Grid project is NOT listed under "Projects in which you are participating"?

This seems to be consistent across all of the projects I've participated in: not listing World Community Grid

Could World Community Grid be added to "Projects in which you are participating"?

That list depends on your Cross Project IDentifier (CPID), which in turn is derived from your email address as entered at each project's account. WCG is the only project that doesn't use the email address as unique key in the user database, but still the CPID should be determined the same.

So, make sure that your email address is identical at each project, even with respect to using upper/lower case characters.

Additionally, at least one of your computers must be connected to WCG and at least one other project, otherwise the CPID will never align.

Thanks Gundolf!

They were setup with same e-mail, but a long time ago when I updated all to a new e-mail address I didn't update WorldCommunityGrid.

Correcting that makes WorldCommunityGrid to appear as one of the projects at the bottom of the page. GREAT!

WorldCommunityGrid is not hyperlinked to the project (home page or account page) like all the other projects are (to the account page). Is this a feature, bug, or more my configuration error?

I think it's not a bug but a feature :-) but I can't tell for sure. However, I'm pretty sure that you can't configure it.

Perhaps it's caused by lack of information provided by WCG regarding one's account.

Every project except WCG has the same general method for their links. WCG is different.

Why wouldn't my credit for SETI@home appear under My Account? All other applications do.

Your credit does appear under Your Account. Be aware that your account is not a single account for all projects. A new account is created for each project your participate in.

The stats at the bottom happen when the database dump is done. On SETI that is usually once a day, but probably is delayed due to all the work has been going on recently. It will eventually show there.

It will appear as soon as SETI@home starts exporting statistics again.
