If I delete a host, what happens to the credits that it has gathered ? Is it best just to keep the host listing around even though it is long gone or what ?

Your credit will always stay with you. Even if you delete a host, switch teams, add 16 PCs, remove 16 of them, you credits will stay with you.

Deleting a host doesn't have any impact on that.

Ageless - Are you very sure about retaining your credits if you 'Switch Teams'? I was told and read in the threads, that a team keeps the credits you contributed while you were a member of that team.

Please clarify!

Ageless is right. Your credit will always stay with you.
Nonetheless, "the others" are right too. The team receives the same
amount of credit you earn during your membership.

Team credits stay with the team the team but individual credits stay with the individual. They are separate totals.

Stick – This is how I arrived at my understand, within this link. So now I'm still a little confused, because the aforementioned link dose have its merits, so I'm going to keep looking for other postings that concur with this posted link to be sure of the situation.

Thanks for your time and the best of crunching on ya!

If you started off as a

If you started off as a single user and accumulated 2000 credits, you have 2000 credits.

Now you want to be part of a team. So you join a team, where you start to accumulate credits from zero for that team. In this team you accumulate 2000 credits.

By this time you have 4000 credits, the team has 2000 of your credits.

You then get into your head that another team is better, so you quit the one team and join the other. You start with zero credits at this team. You accumulate another 2000 credits.

By this time you have 6000 credits, the old team has 2000 credits and your new team has 2000 credits.

Credits will always stay with the individual. But to prevent team-hopping as happened in Seti Classic, where people would take 2 million credits from one team to another, if only for a week, then hop back, this rule has been changed for the whole of BOINC.

Credits will stay with the individual.
Teams get the credit you accumulate from the day you join to the day you quit.

Thanks Paul. I am just not so sure if it were Cobblestones under Seti Classic. :)

(I left that in for now, edited the rest of the typos and missing (one) word. ;))
