Thread: Project User Name Change ???

    Project User Name Change ???

    Bok, after 7+ Years of running BOINC I decided to change my User Name across the Project's from PoorBoy to Paladin* ... After 2-3 Days though I still show up as PoorBoy in the Free-DC Stats and Willy's BOINCstats.

    I've gone to every Project I could and made the Name Change but how long does it take for the Stats Site to pick the new name up and drop the old name ??? Thank's

    Also I don't see a way of changing my User Forum Name here at Free-DC ???

    It will actually update when it next runs the combined scores. What I do is hold a table containing the most used username for each cpid. In your case you now have 49 rows with Paladin* and 46 with PoorBoy so it has already updated my materialized view with Paladin* as your main name.

    There is no way in vBulletin forums to change your username but I can fix it for you.

    Okay & Thanks Gopher (It's Paladin*), Thanks to Bok too, I figured it would take a few Days for the Name Change to take effect ...
