How to \"delete\" your own BOINC user account

Click the \"Participants\" link above on this message board.
Click the change links for EMail address and other account info.
Modify or remove any information you do not wish to remain.
If you have created an account profile, click the link to delete it.

So you see, the \"account\" will still exist, but it won\'t have any of your personal information anywhere. Presumably at that point you would stop crunching under that account as well. Although it will still work. It\'s just that if you forget the EMail address and password for the account you won\'t be able to signon to post to the message boards.

Ethan\'s post here is the current official word on the subject of account deletion. You see user accounts go deeper then just stopping new work and deleting some user information, they are tied in to the message boards and the work units, and other databases in the BOINC system. So it requires some study.

We\'re evaluating what it would take to delete users from the system (generally if people decide to stop participating they just stop returning results). What are the concerns that led to these requests? Thanks!

Ahem, I\'m managing to clean my internet footprint... Since 1995 i\'ve managed to give my dozens of emails adress on hundreds of forums, websites...
Where\'s the big \"Delete my old accounts, old pseudos, old webpages from ALL THE INTERNET...\" ?
I wish it would exist.


sooo please please delete my rosetta account and info :)

(I say that because I like rosetta, but I can\'t help the community when I only go to the internet once a month)

Hello.
I\'d appreciate it for an admin to actually delete my account. Unfortunately no time for Rosetta.

I have an account opened with the e-mail address ertugrul.gokcen@turkcell.com.tr. But I don\'t have access to that e-mail address any more, and I don\'t know the related account key and cross project ID. If I had known any one of them, I would have logged in and changed the e-mail address (that\'s what I did for other BOINC projects.) So I opened another account with the e-mail address egokcen at yahoo dot com, which I\'m using now, and I would like the former account with the e-mail address ertugrul.gokcen@turkcell.com.tr to be deleted. They both have the same account name: Ertugrul Gokcen.

Is this possible? If not, can these two accounts be merged?

Why would anyone have his/her account deleted? I just do not get it. If you do not want to crunch, just detach from the project in the BOINC Manager. That is it. If you have a profile and you hate it, edit/delete it.

If they want an account deleted all they have to do is join Predictor@Home, DLB over there is am expert at that.
