Any way to view list of top project participants beyond top 100?

Topic 227557

This is evidently a project where the statistics aggregation sites like BOINCStats only display hosts with Statistics Export enabled in their project preferences, therefore they only display a fraction of total hosts on their lists.  I can see the list of the top 100 here, but is there a way to see the entire list?  Sorry if this has been asked before.

If you go over to BoincStats

If you go over to BoincStats for example you can see the list of the Top 8000 of the project there.

What I see on Boincstats is

What I see on Boincstats is only 8,072 members...unless there is someplace else I am not looking at.  Considering the 8,072nd member on the list only has 62 points I find it hard to believe this is a top-8,000 ranking.  The only explanation I have heard that makes sense is that for some projects, like Einstein and Universe, only members with stats export enabled are displayed.  Universe shows about 2,600 members on Boincstats when the actual total is something like 40,000.  But the Universe site has a full list, the Einstein site does not.

Both Einstein and Universe

Both Einstein and Universe are bound by GDPR regulations about publishing of private data.

Your stats are not exported outside of those projects to third-party stats aggregators like BoincStats unless you explicitly permit export of your stats in the project configuration settings.

That is why the numbers don't agree between the project stats and the stats sites.  Very few participants are even aware of the permission toggle in the project settings.

You normally have to inform them of such setting when they complain here or there that they see no stats reported for their hosts even though they can see them doing and reporting work.

Einstein uses very different website and forum server software compared to Universe.  That is another reason there are differences between the two projects.

Einstein is very much an outlier in how they do things and don't use the standard BOINC server software or functions.  They prefer to run things their own way.  No arguing with them will change their mind either.
