Maybe two of me?

Post by Ludwig » Thu May 09, 2019 10:04 pm

I signed up yesterday and gave it my username that I wanted (because the username checker on the website doesn't work).
Well, today, I see that my stats are going all over the place (most to team 0). My team is 168138, but my username (Ludwig) seems like it is signed up already (one of the CPUs shows a MacOSX computer, which I do not own).
I did use the key it emailed me, but it also emailed me a username that is like my email address (not just Ludwig) and I didn't use that username.

Did I do something wrong? Was I supposed to use that username it sent to me, along with the passkey? It is submitting points to my team, but not that many. I have two servers and a laptop that are currently folding (CPU). All Windows boxes.

Also, if I add up all the points I'm supposed to be getting per day, it adds up to around 60,000. But I've only gotten around 7000 so far.

It's always safer to choose a unique username.
You may be folding for the other 'Ludwig' at the moment.
Once a unique username is registered to your email and key, unless someone had access to your email, no one is going to take it away.

Ok, so I'll just keep using my username and key. The other Ludwig just donates to Team 0, so he is getting the points for that.
I just want all of my points to go to my team, which they appear to be doing.
I just wish the username checker worked, so I could have seen if it was taken.

Thanks for the help!
