World Community Grid selection problem

Post by trigggl » Wed Mar 04, 2009 8:48 pm

I'm having trouble adding WCG to my projects. When I use my username i get:
No matches were found for trigggl in the XML stats. Please try again.
When I try my user number:
Could not find your account ID in the XML stats... using HTML stats instead.

The following errors occurred:

Could not connect to WCG server, please try again. (Hit refresh)
Is this chronic, I need to wait a few days or a misc bug? Perhaps a temporary glitch?

Hi trigggl,

Have you returned any credit yet for WCG? If not, then your stats will not be in the XML files yet. Once you have returned some credit your stats should be availale in the project's XML files within 48hours. At this time you should then be able to add the project.

Unfortunately, for WCG they do not use the standard BOINC HTML layout for their HTML stats which means my site can't get your stats from here either.

All other projects should be fine.

Hope this helps and welcome to the forums,
