A few weeks ago Seti stopped showing up on the BOINCstats page but my 9 other accounts are still there. How do I fix this? Or does someone else have to look into it? Thanks, valleytoobrown

Why do you think so?

My:

Yours:

Edit:
The problem seems to be: You created different account (used different email address) for SETI@Home

There are two "valleytoobrown" users:
http://boincstats.com/search/all_projects.php?cpid=e2929353e035157fe5959e8c936029d9

http://boincstats.com/search/all_projects.php?cpid=fb3ff67e3455f4cadae4a8f277937585


Your active projects are:
SETI@Home
World Community Grid

(I think that) You have to make sure that at least one of your Computers:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=12604

... is connected to both projects

Many of my machines are running both, in fact the machine that I am on right now ID: 5929918 is running both. If I have two cpid(s) how can I correct this?
Thanks for your reply,

Do you use the same email address for all the projects?

I don't know is the email case-sensitive when computing the CPID from it.

So I suggest - visit all accounts in all your projects (or at least on SETI@Home and World Community Grid),
Copy the email and paste in Notepad
Compare all email strings (and make sure they use only lowercase?)

You may find info here:
"Accounts on different projects are considered equivalent if they have the same email address"

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/CPID

http://boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php?view=192

http://www.boinc-wiki.info/CPID


You may also need to "attach the project with the oldest join date to all hosts for a while."
In your case that is SETI@Home 1999-06-19

you can also see which computers / projects have different CPIDs for yourself.

On each computer, find the BOINC DATA directory. (if you have not found client_state.xml, you have not found the DATA directory). The default location varies from OS to OS, but the location will appear in the first few lines of the message log after a restart.

You can inspect sched_reply_(project URL).xml and find the Cross Project ID in each. This is the internal CPID - which is different than the external CPID as the internal CPID is hashed with the email address as it appears in the database (upper cased or not) to generate the external CPID. Newer server code has a call to lower case the email address before it is put into the DB. Older code did not. Once in the DB, it stays the way it was put in until it is changed manually. So, if you joined one of the projects long enough ago, and you used upper case, the email address at that project will not match the email addresses at newer projects. This change was made a couple of years ago.

If he has email aaa@example.com but it was typed as Aaa@Example.Com
will the old/new server software allow email change directly from Aaa@Example.Com to aaa@example.com

Or email have to be changed in 2 steps:
1) first to e.g. xxxaaa@example.com
2) and then to aaa@example.com

?

(I think it will not hurt if it's done in 2 steps, this way the DB record will be for sure updated)

I have no idea if the single step would work. The double step would certainly work.
