1) Message boards : News : Consent required to export statistics (Message 37758)

Thank you for the explanation. I use a false name and a VPN to protect my identity and it is legal to do so. I do not understand why you have to protect my points which has no monetary value. I have spent a lot of money to have the PRIVILEGE of doing your work for no pay.

Have you actually requested clarification of that rule from GDPR since we are volunteers helping a research project and the scores are meaningless since it is tied to an anonymous name, therefore it should not apply to you..?

I believe the rule should be to continue exporting stats as a default but give the user a choice to opt out if they desire to do so.

Continue on this path will only cause anger of your existing users and are likely to pull out. I have already pulled out of CPDN, Einstein and now will do do here as well because I am not getting support from you by making it harder to see my scores at a central location.

Good Luck with your work, hope you have enough volunteers left to make it worthwhile running it.

BTW, I did tick the box and although I have been running the project on 16 machines 24/7 for the last 4 days at least, I have not seen the stats exported and there is no change in BoinStats.

My previous Boinc Wide Team was: The Seekers Team. I have change this in the Boinc Wide Team to read: Acclaimed Boinc Team. The Team: Seekers team has been deleted, yet I can not change it either manually or automatically. I even created a new Team: which is the same as the Boinc Wide Team: Acclaimed Boinc Users, yet it always returns to the Seekers team.. What can I do?

I just wasted a lot of time trying to join or create my world wide Team: Acclaimed boinc users. Since it was not found, I tryed to create a new team only to be told at the end that team creations are disable. This is extremely unfair. You allowed me to go through the process an waste my time trying to create a new team to be told that it is disabled. Why was I not told befor I started? Why am I being discrminitad for not allowing my team whilst others exists. This is not fair.

Since you have Disallowed team Creation you have lost me. I was under the impression that you are welcoming volunters to help with your project instead of making it a priviladge to allow some teams and not others. Shame on you.

Any chance of looking at and fixing this Database Error?
