The project is now exporting stats for stat aggregator sites. I've also enabled stat export consent which defaults to "no". If you would like your stats exported, please check the "Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?" option under "Project->Preferences".

Thanks again for your support!

Just a suggestion but you might want to send this out as a BOINC "Notice" to insure more people see it.

Reently it seems you are exporting lots of anonymous users who suddenly have millions of credits on an application, without being exported under a user.
My guess is either some bug in the export or your stats are hacked.

- or maybe you export everyone's data, but just remove personal information of people who haven't consented to data-export.
This is NOT allowed according to GDPR.

Baltimore isn't in the EU.
I suppose the EU correct erect a Great EU Firewall to stop it from reaching their area though. That would be interesting.

According to GDPR for all the countries I have checked, anonymised data is not classed as personal data and does not come under GDPR.
