Perhaps revising the thread title will force people to read the basic idea of this thread.

Thank you ...

I doubt it ... sigh ...

It was like when I was writing the UBW, tons of search and it was worse than dragging a teen to school ...

Oh well ... thanks for trying, let us see if it works ... a social experiment ...

Just go in and change your email address to something non existent and then your account is effectively gone. In Science nothing can be truly deleted, but your account can be orphaned by doing as I suggested.

This is a Science Project, no deleting of data is allowed. What IS allowed though is for you to go into your account and change the info to gibberish. So in your case your user name right now is Joghurt, change it to djsijsp, for instance, change your email to me@myplace.biz, for example, and anything else to something else non existent. Essentially YOU are gone but the account stays as a place holder for the Science you did while here. Even if you crunched no units, you attached and are part of the stats.

In Science NOTHING gets deleted, your personal info can be changed so it no longer points to YOU, but the account will remain as long as the Project is around. Please read the first post in this thread!!!

Just go into it and change everything to something that is not you, even make the email address int something fake, then no one will ever know it was you. Of course if it WAS you that found that key piece of info, they will never be able to find you afterwards. But change away if you wish.

Hey Mikey -

I\'m not sure exactly what changing your information will do with regard to eliminating the connection between a user and the account he wants to leave behind.

It is my understanding - quite possibly wrong - that you Cross Project ID will forever tie your Rosetta activity to you if you also participate in other BOINC projects.

I would have to wonder why anyone would want to disassociate themselves from the work they did here - unless they were worried that the boss was going to find out that they had been lighting up the company\'s PC in the middle of the night.

Almost right.

If you change your email address you get assigned a new cross-project ID for that account. If you have two projects with different IDs running on the same computer BOINC will eventually realise the error and assign the same ID to both projects. However if you never run the project again the IDs will never be linked.

Hey, people!
Hey!
Hey, people!

Do as Mod said:
- go here: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/edit_email_form.php and change Your e-mail address to sth stupid (ex. \'deleted@account.com\'),
- go there: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/edit_user_info_form.php to delete Your additional info (country, postal (ZIP) code, URL) and also edit Your profile\'s name (as You cannot leave that field empty), so change it to sth similar to mine: \'[deleted account]\',
- if You wish - visit that place: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/edit_passwd_form.php to change Your password to sth like ex. \'password\'.

Gosh... I wonder why mods could not write this like I wrote. Don\'t they know that today 90% people in the Internet have no idea what \'Account Preferences\' mean...? Anyway - I have no time for Rosetta anymore, too. Gotta quit. It was an honour to serve Rosetta with all of You! Bye, guys!
