Detailed statistics for
"User"

BOINC Cross Project IDentifier d715a7c86fb8dd87b51ceb940f8ec49c

Current Credit (based on incremental update) 470,287.16
Comprising 470,096.44 from the daily update
+ 190.73 since then
BOINC World position based on credit (based on incremental update) 88,324 out of 2,157,381

I noticed when I went and did a search for User a number of accounts came up. Is this an issue that needs addressing?

Thanks

Martylg

When you use different user names on different projects—but the same e-mail URL—or belong to different teams (as I do), the cross-project stats sites seem to pick whichever is handiest to display or link in their summaries. If you change the user name in your MilkyWay@home account to “Martylg”, I’m sure that’s what you’ll see on BOINCstats &c., given a day or two for the databases to get updated and sync’ed.

BOINC user names are just labels: the system uses an account’s e-mail address to identify it on each project, and to assign a cross-project ID for statistical purposes. When two users with the same ‘handle’ post to the message boards some readers might be confused, but the database server doesn’t care, considering it a value rather than a key, so to speak. Still, unique names are generally more convenient for users: as you have found, having a generic sort of name—I bet "Administrator” is another popular one—makes searching more difficult.
