Hi,
since today noon updates of the stats from World Community Grid are not working. I suppose this is caused by GDPR - the usual page hosting XML files with stats now is asking for username and password and this change is well explained in their FAQ

Access to World Community Grid's data export files is restricted to persons who agree to comply with certain requirements regarding the processing of such data, and who sign our Data Processing Agreement.

I'm wondering if BoincStats is going to do something in this regard or rather will stop processing WCG stats? That would be a pity

Alas I feel that BOINC Stats is not alone in this. Apparently HTML is available but XML is not. Team UK runs a stats page particularly for its members and this too is not updated. What was most disappointing was the lack of notice regarding the changes (thereby allowing admins to change code or comply with GDPR requirements in a timely fashion). I can only think that the lack of stats and competitive measurements will damage WCG and other BOINC projects in the future.

There is some legal stuff to take care of which takes some time. After that BOINCstats will be able to update WCG stats again. Until that's done, no updates.

Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.

Thanks! I do realize that it cannot be done ASAP, but the most important thing is that you're aware about it. I will wait, no problem

That's sad and unfortunate. Hope that things get great again. A big cheerup to everybody who has to deal with this mess.

I only got an email that they (the lawyers) are still working on it.

More information in their own forum.

@Willy
Would you have the possibility of by-passing this problem of activity of the members?

I doubt he can. I don't think WCG is exporting anything to bypass.

I think Willy can exceptionally unlock the lock setting to create a challenge in case of inactivity of all the members of a team

Has this problem returned? I've ensured that my password is the same between the sites, but on the My Projects page I continue to get "Project Not Updated Yet" as the status.

However, when I go to the My Details Stats page, there is data there. It seems to be a mismatch or a random issue. I've also noticed that when I update the resource share on the My Projects page for World Grid that i does not sync down to my hosts.

Thanks for any help/pointers.

BOINC Credit/Points are approximately 1/7th of WCG Credit/Points. In simpler terms aprox 7 WCG credits == 1 BOINC credit.
Your WCG PTS 109,749 / 7 == aprox BOINC PTS 15,678.43.

Read this FIRST posting help topic at WCG: Points earned and what do they do or represent?
