Sorry for late feedback. I

Sorry for late feedback.

I am running a bot on Twitter which sends congraturation to the Twitter user who achieved milestone of credits at various BOINC projects.

https://twitter.com/CBMA_bot

http://knightclub.0am.jp/cbma_bot/

Therefore  I have been using user's statistics data stats/users.gz to get users credit data who registerd CPID to my bot service. But I was shut out of E @ H, Albert@home, and WCG now.(T_T)

If possible we would appreciate it if you could use the data as before.

Thank you.

Boincstats has not imported

Boincstats has not imported data on the 2 projects I support either yesterday or today. That is taking a bit out of the fun of distributed computing for me.

I look at the leaderboard

I look at the leaderboard stats occasionally. I would certainly be interested in a downloadable .xml file to look at more stats for Einstein@Home beyond the top or bottom 100 in each category. My usage of the data is based simply on personal curiosity as well as a desire to know just how big of a project we are all a part of. Just getting my own stats would be a bit dry.

Try using Free-DC, my own stats came thru on it yesterday as well as everyone elses near me, I didn't scroll around looking for others but the list seems complete.

Gridcoin an BOINCstats both

Gridcoin is what I need to run E@H. When I discovered I was not getting any credit I switched off my CalcCluster.

Gridcoin an BOINCstats both have access to our data and BOINCstats already confirmed that all's fine for them, so please check again if the problem still persists.

Yet the lists at https://gridcoinstats.eu/project/ show E@H moved from the Whitelist of (now 21) projects to the list named "Past Projects Not available for Reward", with the last seen date noted as 2018-06-13.

Was disappointed yesterday to

Was disappointed yesterday to find Seti@home had moved to "Excluded Projects" list but relieved to see it back in the whitelist today! Maybe had similar GDPR issues but soon sorted?  Surely E@H can do likewise?  Shame to see recent disruptions over this. (EU regulation 2016/679 came into force April 2016 so organisations had over 2 years grace to prepare) The huge penalties are rightly causing all concerned to be cautious - but which articles are thought to apply here? Has a risk assessment shown exactly what data the ICO would consider for possible misuse, and in what way?

I don't find it obvious that GDPR should even be applicable, given that individual's stats are not generally linked to, nor reveal the real person's identity. The user-name is a handle, a nom-de-plume, unless the user decided to use their real name there, and if so, unlikely to be unique. So aren't the basic 'individual stats' inherently already 'anonymous'? - even before merging into mass data.

Accessing the fact (via login or public) that equipment owned by someone using the name xxx crunched yy project units is hardly controversial ! It doesn't disclose the real life identity, address, phone, email, etc. or anything more sensitive - unless xxx gives extra data about themselves in a profile or forum - their choice.
Given that the 'principle' is all about users (of goods or services) having control of their own 'personal' data - wasn't that already so?

Hello, I understand about

Hello,

I understand about the changes.
But SETIBZH is a wel known stat site for team's.
It also use http://formula-boinc.org  for competition.
It give no any personal information.
Why to block it ?
There are no any problems with other projects !

Best regards from the first Belgian team
