Subject: World Community Grid no longer sharing stats
Posted on: June 02 2018 @ 10:30 AM
I know quite a lot of us have noticed our rewards from the World Community Grid/Cobblestone cottage have stopped. No more extra stamina or SP, no more cobblestones.
A few of us have tried updating our privacy settings at WCG, but it didn't change anything.
I was about to Petition about it, when I found this forum thread :
and I'm getting the distinct feeling the updated API for getting access to our teams statistics isn't ready yet, even if CMJ contacts them and signs the new contract they may or may not have ready?
Thought I'd share this, for anyone else who's worried about it.

An update, for anyone who follows it here.
I am pleased to report that access to the data export files has been re-activated and is available again. Volunteers who wish to access the data will not need to sign a Data Processing Agreement or obtain tokens.
Finally, a reminder that while access to the data exports is now unrestricted, the export files only include data of volunteers who have opted to make their information public.
When I checked, I noticed that the "Display my data" setting seemed the default, rather that opt-in, but anyone still having problems receiving their cobbestones/SP might want to check their settings anyway. (Under Settings/My Profile)
