I have tried numerous times, but each time I attempt to Log In to BOING, it tells me that There Is No Such Account. I can Log In to The Projects without any problem ..... Yes, as far as I know mt Cookies are Enabled, otherwise I would have Problems with other Websites.
I'm still getting used to how these Message Boards work, so Please see the Edited Version of this Message ....... Message 1314158 - Posted: 12 Dec 2012 | 6:07:20 UTC - in response to Message 1314157

I know that this is not really the correct place to Post This, but I can't Log In to Post it in a BOING Message Board. I have tried numerous times, but each time I attempt to Log In to BOING, it tells me that There Is No Such Account. I can Log In to The Projects without any problem ..... Yes, as far as I know mt Cookies are Enabled, otherwise I would have Problems with other Websites.

Anyway, what I wanted to enqure about, was I have NEVER had anything appear in my Transfer Tab list on The BOING MANAGER. What and When is it for?

It might help if you tried to log in to the correct name - it is BOINC - with a C for Charlie at the end.

WU's will appear here while uploading or downloading, currently uploads and downloads are fairly quick so you would have to be viewing at the exact time they appear.

At other times when things are slower, stalled uploads and downloads appear here and can be "retried" using the button on the left. You will see the "back off" time appear in the "status" column

PS to log into the BOINC forums you will have to create a separate account not tied to any project.

OOPS! ... The G was a typo. Thanks for picking that up. However, I Was Trying to Login in to BOINC (with a C) on The BOINC Messages Login Page: I wasn't tring to manually Login to it using a G instead of a C. I even tried to Login on The BOINC Home Page without success.

1.) Re Transfers: Okay, thanks for that information. it has cleared it up fully for me. 2.) Re Logins to BOINC: I am sure that I Set Up a Separate Account Initially prior to Adding any Projects. Wouldn't I have had to do that when I Installed BOINC in the first place? I'm sure I have Logged In to BOINC on previous occasions. However, I'll try recovering My E-mail & Password via The Login Page on The BOINC home Page, and see what happens. Thanks again for your help.

UPDATE: I have just attempted E-mail Address Recovery, and Password Recovery, but still get the No Such User Error Response. I therefore Opened the Application File on my Computer and tried to Locate The BOINC File, so that I could Login via the AUTHENTICATOR String, and reset my Password. However, it appears that when I Initially Installed BOING and Added Projects on my Computer, I did it through the Sseti@home Home Page and Installed BOINC at that time. In which case I apparently haven't Set Up an Actual BOINC Account: So, I'll do that now.

The BOINC forums are not like the projects forums that use the same account created at the time you attach to them, so you have to create the account manually. (indeed, there is not such thing as "attach" to BOINC, you can only be "attached" to projects)
