You have good points but displaying old Stat's is not a violation... Exporting stat's without consent is.

Are you trying to tell me you actually understand the GDPR? You're one in a million. You should go work for the EU :-P

This is all very interesting, but there is no work. We won't have anything to export.


Don't panic, there'll be more work shortly. Why do you need it available 100% of the time? Projects can have no work for a variety of reasons. Server problems, problems getting data from telescopes, or simply needing to do things with the last set of results before creating the next batch of tasks. Use another project, set it to a lower priority if you want, or even 0 which means your computer will always do Universe unless there's nothing available. And it's not been off for long anyway, increase your cache size. Mine is only on 1+1 days and I haven't run out yet.

You seem to feel that you are telling me something. Go ahead and take the day off.
Happy New Year!

Actually I was asking why you cared that the tasks were temporarily out.

That is a strange way to ask.

I thought "Why do you need it available 100% of the time?" was a fairly straightforward question.

A valid answer might be "my computer setup is incapable of storing a large buffer".

The website design is pretty bad after the upgrade. Pages are hard to read. Is it going to stay this way?

Hello dear universe-boincer!
Some days before, my position in country in boincstats fell down over 1000 places!! And my credits showed minus results!! Have had no Idea why. Read a hint, it is because universe needs a consent for my data transfer. What the heck was this?? And why just now that consent?? I am member since years. After I gave the consent my old position came back. And my old credits too.
What I think now is... is there a need to give consents in other projects, like einstein or asteroids too??

It's a very stupid law passed by the European Union, and it's screwing up the entire world, even people not in Europe! One by one some projects are starting to have this pointless tickbox, and even worse they don't tell us when it's there.

All you can do is go search for the tickbox whenever you fall off the stats for a particular project. Einstein already has a box. Not sure about the others.

Yes many other projects also require this user approval.

Others...

Einstein@Home *
LHC@Home *
LHCathome-dev *

Hello Peter and Bill,
thank you both for your help. I found a button on the einsteinathome website about that consent und it has the default "No". I changed it. Now I have to search in all the other projects too. Thanks for the list, Bill.

Hello Universe BOINCER Boss!

Back to the thread.

Do you have any idea when our task supply will get back to normal?

The biggest problem is there is there is no standard place they put it, so you have to search thru everything to find it at each site.

Since all these projects use a similar system, perhaps Boinc could initiate some way we could just tick once on the Boinc website and that would tell every project? And when a project changes to having the tickbox, they could check the master list of who has already ticked.

Even better, make it opt OUT. Mind you, that would probably be against the silly EU regs. Destroying our human rights or something....

W can't do this.
Regulations strictly require get permissions from volunteers...
The place where it is is a standard BOINC server, I haven't changed it.

The regulations suck. Especially when a lot of the volunteers don't even live in the EU.

Also, how come more than half the projects haven't put the tickbox in yet? But the regs have been around for years.

But anyway, what you could do is inform everyone by email or at least a notice through Boinc that we need to tick it. I think the vast majority don't even know it exists.

The regulations are here since May last year.
