Up until September 30th I was only running this project on BOINC. I did have an ill fated attempt to run MooWrapper on a few computers for about 4 hours and then removed that project from my clients back in the early summer. On September 30th I added WCG to my machines with no NVidia cards so they could run the CPUs of them. The problem is in the reporting of my credit on the third party BOINC stats reporting sites. One of the sites count September 30th as the first day I started crunching anything with a total one day activity of 832,736,449 points. Ever since I did that my stats on these other tracking sites has been erratic. It goes from showing 1, 2, or 3 projects. It goes through days where it removes all the stats from GPUGrid and then adds them back 1-3 days later. Who do I contact about this wild and erroneous activity on these third party reporting sites?

Examples:

http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=userbycpid&cpid=f953fa9a7443c3f4266dcc936921a58a - second to the last graphic shows this well

You have doubled user IDs on BOINCstats.

http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/user/detail/3588671/projectList
Perhaps something keeps on swapping your projects between these IDs.
Do you use some kind of BOINC account manager? If you do, there may be some misconfiguration in that, which could result in this phenomenon.

Man, that is strange. I use the downloaded software for BOINC which calls itself BOINC Manager in the program and in the Task Manager. I don't use any third party proxy of any kind. I used the same e-mail address for all the projects. I don't and wouldn't know enough to use anything else aside from letting each of the computers individually connecting to the projects under the same credentials.

I seem to have 2 CPIDs for my identity across BOINC.
a3d6dbc875b338029130bb6376e1e9f1
and
f953fa9a7443c3f4266dcc936921a58a

It looks like I even have a 12 year old F@H with no CPID at all.

Apparently the answer is to attach all of the projects that I am active in (WCG and GPUGrid) to all of the computers I am using for either of them. Then after Sunday, all the stats should combine to one CPID. "SHOULD"

I don't THINK you have to do ALL of them, just attach to the same project across all pc's will do it I THINK. For example if you are attached to 10 projects on pc#1 you do not have to attach all 10 projects to pc#2, just one of them, then attach to the same project on all subsequent pc's and the ID should be carried over to each.

I do this on all of my pc's but have that project set at a zero resource share, it carries the data over but doesn't get any new units unless the project that particular pc is running is out.

This still hasn't fully fixed. There are still 2 account IDs out there and two of my PCs are listed as on the other one. I have both GPUGRID and WCG running on them just like the rest. The GPUGRID site shows stats for those machines listed next to all the others and so does the WCG site listed right along the others. And yet boincstats.com still shows them separate from the rest. I just don't get it.
