Hello and greetings!
You have to score some (at least 1 credit) in order to post in the boards...
that is made so to prevent people/automated machines/programs to post spam when creating a new account.

You have to be actively crunching. Your RAC (Recent average credit) is 0.08 which means you haven't actively participated in the project for some time. You're RAC has to be above 1 to be allowed to post in forums other then the help section of the board.

You will have to wait until at least your first task is validated before posting on the forums.

You'll have to install BOINC on a computer and attach it to SETI@home.

Then you let BOINC download work, run it on your computer and upload it again.

After the work is validated, you'll receive credit.

Beware that attaching, down- and uploading is only possible from Friday to Monday (inclusive) due to the extended weekly outage.

Gruß,
Gundolf

You have Credit: 100,155

If you talk about RAC: 0 obviously you didn't computed anything for SETI in the last months (using this "Coco" account)

Recent Average Credit (RAC)
http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Recent_Average_Credit


Everybody have Account key and Weak account key
(NEVER post the actual keys anywhere - consider them "passwords")


"My messages always say using the wrong URL":
Copy & Paste a few (5-10 lines?) of messages here
(click - Shift-click - use the button on the left "Copy selected messages")

"I've left my pc go for 24 hours a day. I also due work on the pc":
You always can use Windows Task Manager to check which programs (processes) are running
and which take most of the CPU time.

"Yes, also on a team":
team doesn't matter
http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Team

You can find many answers it the BOINC Glossary
http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Category:BOINC_Glossary
