Saw one post in the forums on this issue but not sure it applies to me. When I tried to post to that thread it said I have to have minimum average credit to post. Average credit of 3,589.93 isn't enough?

I build computers and for some reason, my newest build created a new SETI/Boinc account. Both list me as owner but when I try to merge, the new account has no computer name, only a number. Can't seem to find any way to update the computer name so I can merge the credits.

User name: D34DM34T for both accounts.
Legacy account computer name: D34TM34T-PC ID:5847814
New account no name listed only ID: 7548977

Legacy has 2.6M+ credits, new account 3M+. It would be nice to combine them. Any clue would be appreciated.

Best regards.

It is not possible to merge two "BOINC" accounts, only to merge a single "BOINC" with a single "Classical" account.
The important thing is not the user name, but the user id number, and the email address associated with it. If you sign on using that email address you will be able to connect your classical account to that BOINC account, provided the Classical account has not been attached to another account.

If you look at the RAC under this name you will see it is 0

So you have logged onto the site under the other account/email address.

As Rob said to prevent fraud you cannot combine accounts. It is not the username that matters, there are many identical users at SETI@Home, it is the e-mail address.

Use a different e-mail address with a new computer and you will create a second account and never the twain shall meet.
