You can't really combine different accounts under BOINC, even if they are for the same person as BOINC does not know that.

You need to make sure you use the same e-mail address for all your project accounts to get them to all link together.

If you have used different e-mail addresses then work out the e-mail address that you wnat to use and continue to use that one. The other one will just sit there and fade into obscurity.

E-mail addresses are the way that BOINC links a volunteers accounts together across different projects.

You can have different names just have to have the same e-mail address.

That can happen when you add a new project to a new computer (or operating system), before adding any projects you already crunch for. If you have not run that 'new project' on any other system the new project won't know to use an existing account key and will create a new key.

If that is the case it's usually best to add a project you have been crunching for a long time to the new system (which you may have already done) and so long as you are using the same email address it should sort itself out in 24h. Not sure if all the project credit details will be merged though. Might be best to look for more info on this at https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/, though it's covered in several projects including WCG.

It is simple:
- On one project it is Not possible to have 2 accounts with the same "email address" ("email address" and not the name "merko-wotb-01" is used to log-in)
- On different projects (each project have different servers) it is good to use the same "email address" to "connect" accounts for stats.
(I used "email address" because it is not really email address but just ID string - e.g. this will work as "email address": 987@123.777)

You post from:
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/show_user.php?userid=132364

... so just click "My Account" link here and see at top "Email address ....."
Keep this on computer screen (even zoom the page) so you can type it properly on the phone (see down)


The other account:
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/show_user.php?userid=132446

On this "computer" (phone?):
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/show_host_detail.php?hostid=123028

... [Remove] from BOINC this project (WUProp@Home)
[Add] again WUProp@Home using the "Email address ....." you see on the computer screen (above)
