Message 147847 - Posted: 25 Jan 2021 | 15:48:46 UTC

I saw in BOINC messages a plea to users to edit the PrimeGrid prefs to give permission to report results.To my surprise, I did not have an account. Possibly this is because I'm connected through Science United.

Now that I have created an account, will my edited permissions affect my configuration, or do I have to do something else? Yes, I have pressed the Update button in BOINC Manager.

Regards,
Anders

Yes, exactly.

They will affect your config at once after you press the update button and the communication with the primegrid server finishes.

While you've made an account, your computer is still connected through Science United. I don't know the exact buttons or wording, but you need to detach from PrimeGrid and Science United. Then you can reattach to PrimeGrid without connecting to Science United. Once you can't find Science United mentioned anywhere in the Boinc manager, you're all set.

You have to stop using the Science United account manager, and connect directly to PrimeGrid under your own account. If you use Science United, your computers effectively belong to Science United, not you. Science United decides what your computers run, and if they earn credit, find primes, or anything else, all of that belongs to Science United, not you.

As long as you are using Science United, it doesn't matter whether you give us permission to report for you. You're not actually a PrimeGrid participant if you're using Science United. Essentially, Science United is usurping any recognition that should instead belong to you.

Did they tell you that when you joined Science United?
