WCG doesn't provide the web RPC interfaces that we need to get info about individual participation. They use their own web code, not BOINC's.

Well, you may add to survey page some input fields like "Credits", "RAC", "join date" etc for those project that have custom RPC, so you would not lose survey results of people who participate mainly in medical/biological projects...

What's the use of giving private data to the survey, the CPID should be more than sufficient. Email and password??? In a survey????? On the internet??????? That's so far off, I can't even think of any reason for such utter unprofessionalism.

Imho only a totally stupid survey designer could even think about this entry "question", it's like any other phishing site, "Please give us your PIN for confirmation".

Who came up with this rubbish?
