    *** EVERYONE WITH AN EINSTEIN ACCOUNT! ***

    You have one week from today to allow Einstein to export your stats to external stat sites if you so desire.

    They have defaulted your option to do not export.
    You have to sign on in the next week to change it to "Yes" if you want your stats to continue to be exported.

    See below.

    I want to remind people that in one week, our stats exports will change and honor the option Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?
    If you want to have your stats exported, and have not changed this setting, to YES, please do so in Account -> Preferences -> Privacy. Also, I have been informed that at the BOINCstats Web site, your user history may be lost if you do not consent to the stats exports before we update our systems on 2018 Dec 17th. If this is something you care about (BOINCstats history), please change your privacy preferences.

    This was enforced as of yesterdays xml output.. The #users in the export file fell from ~469,000 to only 2619....

    They will all be deleted at my stats within a few days as I put in a short deferral for now..

    I imagine LHC will follow suite at some point.

    And I still managed to drop 9 places overall today. But I can't see how, when I try to pull up the Project User list, the sort by overall credit doesn't seem to be working. (Or even when you click on your position in your project listing, it no longer takes you to you position within that same sorted list. Even using stats3 that Total Credit sort is all broken, at least for Einstein, today.)

    Grrr...I can't believe stuff like this. What kind of a nanny state world do we live in? Why on earth would the "default volunteer cruncher" NOT want their credits reported after all the donated electricity bill?! Point being, it should default to YES so no one loses their credits, and people who actually care to block it (I'm estimating this percentage to be a negligible tenth of one percent of all crunchers) could just switch it to NO. These people's kind of thinking puzzles my brain.
