I have traditionally participated in SETI@home and World Community Grid... how will things change by moving to Science United? I have also tried to help promote using WCG via their auto tweet tool (https://autotweet.worldcommunitygrid.org/?recruiterId=738335) ... will that keep working and will I still have the option to see the stats I have become accustomed to seeing in the screensavers?

Also, my computers are currently connected to BOINCstatsBAM!... how does that impact things?

Science United currently monitors available projects with self created credentials. It is in essence a account manager/maintainer. I am not aware of any way to have it use previously created accounts.

Most likely if you wish to use Science United those states don't carry over. Since it seems to create its own accounts for use internally.

Reading this page kind of gives a clue of what they are trying to accomplish it is in a way different from BAM!

Thanks. I had read the about page and the one for people coming from traditional BOINC but was still left wondering.
