I tried creating an account with the same email/user I use for every other BOINC project and I get:

Invalid email address: you must enter a valid address of the form name@domain


I tried from the website and within the client.

I change only gmail to hotmail (plus some bogus username to keep my own user/email combo) and it allowed me to create this account.

Edit:
I tried changing my email and I got:

New email address 'xxxxxx@gmail.com' is invalid.

Try ***@googlemail.com and it will work. Should both (gmail and googlemail) be accepted by Google

It's not about just making up some random email address. BOINC needs to see the same email to sync up the CPIDs.

Please wait.
Perhaps the administrator did not see your question.
I sent him a link to your message.

I the IP listed with it there was with a VPN as it's not the IP I have now and there are email addresses listed from around the globe attached to the IP as well. I've submitted a removal request.

19 days later my info was finally removed after several removal requests, multiple emails, a forum thread (had to sign up at work since home IPs were blocked). Forum moderator said its basically up to forum administrators to whitelist users if they are blocked. He also said to get a new user ID. Not possible with BOINC as CPIDs are linked to emails/users.

Anyone can get a hold of an email list and start spamming forums. They expect forum administrators that use the service to whitelist people instead of fixing it at the source. Nice concept of SFS but its all controlled by ONE SINGLE PERSON!

I started a thread on BOINC forums to move to email registration, captcha, anti-robot clicks, etc but ageless shot it down because BOINC forums have 1 real user that spams the forum. 1 user.
