Hello

I got two accounts for some reason. One created around 1999 and one around 2004.

account WPN (ID 222838) computer ID 7775739 (this is actively in use and the oldest account)
peluso (ID 7856566) computer ID 7739693 is the other account.

Both computer ID's are from the same computer.

On the computer with account WPN i click in boinc on the ACCOUNT button. It will take me to the account peluso.
This is weird, it should connect to my WPN account right?

When I want to add another computer to my WPN account I use the e-mail I always used. Instead of connecting it ot the WPN account I get connected to the PELUSO account.
The latest activity in the peluso account is a computer from which I found out this changing in accounts.....

How can I fix this so that eveything (new computers at least) go to my WPN account?

I just logged in with my authenticator and found a different e-mail address (which i still have access too luckely)

Great i solved it....

Im figuring now that the button in the boinc client doesnt move me to my actual seti account on the website but to my remembered logged in session?

I did some editing on my accounts so I have the right mails hooked up and all...

Guessing that was my problem... Too bad I cant merge the accounts for credits

No accounts cannot be merged, but you can put all of them in a team of your own making.
