May I choose my member name?

Yes. You may choose any member name that is not already in use. You can change your member name at any time (but, of course, only to another member name that is not in use). If you do change your member name, your previous member name will become available to other members.

I want to contribute to one of World Community Grid's research projects. How do I register for a particular research project and start contributing?

Members only need to register and attach once to World Community Grid in order to contribute to any, or all, of our research projects. In order to contribute, please take the following steps:

  1. Register with World Community Grid
  2. Select which of our research projects you wish to contribute to:
    1. The registration process gives you a list of research projects to choose from
    2. If you are already registered, you may change which projects you contribute to on your My Projects page
  3. If you do not already have BOINC installed download and install the software
  4. If you already have a version of BOINC installed more recent than version 5.4, then you may participate in World Community Grid using your existing BOINC software. Just attach to World Community Grid using the url: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org and using the member name and password you created in step 1 above.
