It disappeared into the ether without a trace along with all our computations and "personal" information.
I woke up one morning and completed task were not uploading, days past turning into weeks... and still nothing.
BOINCStats "retired" the project from active project listings on 2021-09-18.

... And what is this "personal" info you speak of?

Login Name, email address, password, etc...

When a project or web site disappears into the ether without a trace who know what they or someone else could do with the information they have gathered on the users of the project or website.

Worst-case is the information gets placed on the black market/ dark web for sale.

I'm so worried. What should I do?

That is up to you.

Some people use same login/username and password information for almost everything on the internet to make it easy to remember.

I am not worried because my BOINC info is not used elsewhere on the internet.

Can we please continue this chat outside the Project Outages thread? It's probably interesting information and all, but it has nothing to do in this thread.

It seems that MilkyWay has been down for about an hour. I can't contact the website, or get new work.

MilkyWay is having problems again. I can't get to the website.
I can get CPU work (N-Body), but the GPU work (Separations) is very limited; a few come in, but not enough.

Don't know if already mentioned but I can't find it - WUProp@Home seems to be shut down permanently.

Homepage says:

Project end
I have no time to manage correctly the project.
So the work generation has been stopped and the project will be offline in a few days. 8 Mar 2022, 5:47:55 UTC

Seems S├ębastien will keep WUProp going, which is great news (see https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=14593&postid=107512#107512).

Any news on WCG?
They originally said toward the latter part of April, but I don't remember the date. It could change in any case.
