I'm a returning participant. I got started in 1999, created a team, Team Terran, and crunched some W/Us. (Back when it was 1 point per W/U, BTW.)

I took a break when I moved and got started up again in 2013. I couldn't remember my password and had it reset. Now my account shows me as being a member since that date in 2013, instead of the original 1999.

Team Terran shows a creation date of 1999 and me as the founding member. So there's evidence to back my claim. Would it be possible to get my personal account corrected to show 1999?

Do you know your original email address that you signed up with? It doesn't need to be active. If so, have you tried these instructions for current BOINC users to reclaim your old account?

I had to think for a second, but I did remember my old Worldnet address and was able to reclaim both the start date and my 500 classic w/u. Thanks for your help!
