Hi !

I'd like to delete one of my two accounts, as I created one long ago which has (and will get) no credits, and one I'm working on... Is it possible ? How ?

Hi,

I reckon this being an old request in BOINC projects, see here and here, but it is currently not possible in an easy way.
If you do not want your personal information to be in an account, simply edit it with fictitious data.

Happy crunching,
ignasi (under a test account I couldn't certainly delete :))

Hi,

Thanks for answering :)
Too bad there isn't an automatic cleaning process that deletes accounts that have been inactive for a long time. My "bad account" didn't even get any credit...

So, I'll "anonymize" the bad account, as suggested in the thread you have mentioned, but I still think the unability to delete irrelevant data is a waste of ressources, like keeping a 1983 phone book "just in case" :)
