If I go to my account page, I can see I am adrianxw, my e-mail is indeed mine, I can see I am founder of team BOINC@Denmark, indeed, all looks normal, normality rules.

Looking a little further, normality takes a bit of a bump however. Again, on my account page, I can see that I have no tasks, complete, in progress or pending, and no credit.

Yet, the RPC stats grabber I use for our teams web site, does show me as having credit for completed tasks. Now here, normality takes a real side step! It does not show me as adrianxw, my regular screen name at this, and indeed many BOINC projects, but as "Adrian", my real name, the only BOINC project so to do.

I am intruiged to see what name it will put against this post when I submit it.

Suffice to say, something is not right here.

[edit]
Yes, the message board shows me as me!

I reported this a year ago, no action and problem persists. Can someone please delete the "Adrian" account, I use "adrianxw" at all BOINC projects.

most projects can't or won't delete accounts, messes up the Data base.
what you can do is go to the account and trash the userid/email address/ and all other information, change the password and log off.

but only if the unwanted account is really your!

also as far as I know, boinc server will not let you make 2 accounts with the same email address.

anybody know for sure?

Some work coming again and, although I had forgotten about this, I have refound it. I receive jobs on this adrianxw account, they crunch and report, no problem, so trash the other account. But no, the other account is my team founder account. I maintain, some goof here has created this situation. No new tasks set.
