Why Does my name Not appear on the list of members contribution

Post by John L Smith » Fri Nov 26, 2021 2:03 pm

Hi,
Hope someone can help me. Just checked the members list of contributions to see where I was now that I am running a Supermicro computer with twin 14 core processors capable of running 56 threads at the same time so my contribution could be of some value in team challenges and overall stats.
Checked that I was a member and that what it says on the World Community Grid site and I receive Timbos much appreciated emails. Any one with any ideas - have I accidentally ticked a box or not done so somewhere??

Hi John,

Where did you "check the members list"?

If you mean on WCG, due to GDPR, I believe you now need to agree to have your stats exported from WCG (amongst other projects) However, since they updated their website, there's no place where you can click on to do it!

However, you can log in normally then go to https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/v ... ing.action and find the missing link :)

Regards,

(WCG list UBT as having 202 members, stats sites only know of 177 as the other 25 are not having their stats exported)

Hi John

Welcome back to the forum !

As Woodles mentions, some BOINC projects are adhering to the GDPR directive and hence you need to confirm your agreement to share your stats data by allowing the project to export the stats.

WCG are one of the projects involved, as is Einstein, CPDN and a few others. Each project needs your permission to share your data so you need to login to each one in turn to allow your permission.

Login to your WCG account, then click on the "Profile and settings" logo (the green circle at the top right) and on the new page, on the left, click the "Data sharing" tab at the side and then just click on the bit that says "Display my data" then click on Save (in the blue box underneath).

Then just wait and see - it might take a few days for your stats to be shown.

regards
Tim
