Can an admin transfer the credit from my old account, Connor Chung, to my new account, The_planet_hunters? Also, how do I add computers to my new account?

Admins rarely view these forums. They are kept busy doing the science and keeping the project running. The forum are mainly run by the volunteers themselves.

User names are meaningless as they are not necessarily unique. The Email address used for the accounts are the unique identifiers. Credits can't be moved accounts nor can accounts be merged.

To add a computer to an account you just have to install Boinc and attach (or add) a project with the same email and password used when creating the account.

Why don't you keep your old account and just rename it?

But if you still have your BOINC data directory intact, you can get the <authenticator> from the account_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml file and use it with the "forgot password/email" link. (Don't post it here!)
