I have stopped running Seti@HomeBeta and am wondering how I persuade my Seti userid to stop identifying me as a "volunteer tester"?

Change your email address at Seti Beta and the title will fade away.

Thank you. Just did that (I'm fading... I'm fading..... Shades of the Wizard of Oz, I'm shrinking....)

It may take a while, 24 hours in the least. It may also need a communication from your BOINC to both projects, I'm not sure if it was propagated that way or in another way.

Seeing how you still have the 'volunteer tester' title, you either didn't change the email address at Beta to one differing from the one you use here, or there's something else weird going on. I don't have it because I changed my nickname and email address over there - even set the password to something I cannot remember. Can't even remember what email address I set it to, I think it was a garbage one (non-existing). So if I ever wanted it back, I'd have to go through the administrator route or register again.

Jord,
I changed my email address. Saved it, and ignored it. Apparently that didn't work. Then a reason came up to startup on SetiBeta again (a new cpu test) so I signed back in, and it reset to my default email address.

I wouldn't mind dropping the "volunteer tester" title if I could still run SetiBeta on an as needed basis. I think I have that figured out (don't get new tasks) but would still need to login to SetiBeta to be able to examine results and change settings as necessary.

I will look at your responses and see if I can tinker with it again.

After all, I want my cake and to eat it too :)

Ok, I have changed my email to a non-existent one. And my "nickname" to something different. Then I logged out and then back in under the new "junk" email address to help me remember to not use the "real" email address for SetiBeta.

Now lets see if I "fade" or not.

Thank you for your help Jord.
