Topic 192048

I accidentally registered a second Einstein@Home account without realizing that I had one previously... I now have 18000 Credits on the new account with 25000 on the old account... Is there anyway to merge them? I use Boincstats to check my accounts on all my projects and would like to have accurate stats

Same account, different emails

As you can see on the left, I'm sending this from my other account... they have the same name, but I would like the final account to be registered to the gmail.com address if possible... Please advise me on how to do this.

Sorry, accounts cannot be merged.
Since you can access either account you'll have to decide which one you want to use.

Well, veiwing the situation from your perspective I could understand why you would think so. The reason for this limitation however is to protect participants accounts from being hijacked and merged with another account.
You could form a team (with both accounts) to view your total in one stat if that's what you were looking to do.

That's the reason I figured... I've already got them on the same team... I just swapped to make the 25K my main account... *shrugs*
