Hey Guys,
Not quite sure how this happened, but I seem to have 2 accounts for S@H. How can I merge them and fix this issue?

Thanks!

Jeff

BOINC accounts (at any project) can't be merged.

Just make sure that all your computers are attached using the same account and that you are logged into it when online.

If you want to, you can fill the fields of the obsolete account with dummy data.

Gruß,
Gundolf

I to had another account and when I changed my email address and computer I couldn't access my account anymore because I forgot my password. I have a new account now but would like to add the credit from my old account to it. Oh well I guess.

User name are not unique so they are not helpful. If you have the original data directory then the Boinc project authentication key can be retrieved. Otherwise without Email and password there is no way to access the account.

If you can still receive emails at the email address you can use the forgot password link to send you the authenticator, with which you can login (also with the forgot password link).
