Would you allow us access to our wingman's computer information in the 'Task View' window. Right now access is denied. TIA

SETI does this too. But only for the tasks that have not yet completed. What is it doing here?

I am not aware that S@H did that. I have always been able to access
a wingman's information, regardless of the task's status. Is this something recent? I have dropped the Seti projects because of the long down times and the low credits so have not check this lately.

As for CAS, when I try to access the wingmans info I get this message.."Sorry! You have no privilege to browse this page!" I was hoping Jie Wu could fix this.

BTW, Zombie I would be honored if you join my friends list here. My request is pending. Have a great day!

I think it is not so well to let out too many informations for voluteers' computer. So I forbad the access to computer details execpt self's. May it is not a good policy, but what I want to do is to protect voluteers' computer

Jie Wu, wingman information is readily available on all the projects I am associated with. There is nothing in the infomation that violates his/her privacy that I am aware of. It contains no personal information, only the computer's. Anyone can access my information anytime they want. Its ok. There is nothing I need private about my system. It does help us determine who is working on the task with us and how long it may take them to complete their part. It's a common practice to allow this access and can easily be verified if you wish. TIA

Truth. When looking at other people's machine info, there is nothing visible that is sensitive. When you look at your own machines, you see much more info than when you look at other's machines. Much more restricted data is displayed when looking at your own machine info. Try logging out, and then looking at your own machines, and you will see the difference. So there is no need to artificially restrict people looking at other people's machines.

Thanks Zombie, for clarifying that point. There is a difference between a wingman's information and your own information within a project. When someone looks at your computer information, they see what you see when you look at their information. They do not see what YOU see when YOU look at your own information. No personal info like IP adress, Domain name, BOINC use stats, etc is seen in the wingman view. I know this may sound a bit confusing, but it's not once you understand the points of reference. It would be helpful if our wingman's info was available. TIA

What may also be happening Jie Wu, is that as admin, you may be seeing more information about a user's computer than what is normally seen when we look at that users information. A lot more. In truth, the wingman view has very limited information but it's what we need for our evaluations. Please give this some consideration. Thanks

PS I would be honored if you would join my friends list. I have sent you a request.

I dont think viewing other peoples info would be much of a big deal as we always have the option in our account to turn off the option ''Should CAS@home show your computers on its web site?''.
