If I use a Name it returns:

User Search Results
No users match your search criteria.

If I use the random number, that no one knows who it relates to then the user record is returned but still not showing the name.

This makes this facility a waist of time.

That is how we intended the website to work. One can search users only on the basis of their leaderboard names.

By default, the names are randomized. However, if someone explicitly sends in a request to change their display name from a system assigned random string to their chosen screen names, only then their display name changes on the leaderboard and others can look them up using this name:

Thanks!

I sent a PM to a Project Admin requesting that you use my Name only but I can't tell you who it was as I cannot remember the random numbers.
Please change my Name to Dingo.

I would also like access to create my Team. When will there be more work??

thanks

For consistency in record-keeping and compliance, we are following the process for name change as documented in the terms of the project: https://boinc.tacc.utexas.edu/terms.php . Unfortunately, we are unable to accept requests through the message board or private messaging. Thanks!
