I had suggested this to a number of other BOINC projects and in many cases this was implemented very nicely (see the Rakesearch or Numberfields projects for the latest examples):

When opening the individual user page on the Asteroids@home website, would it be possible to see an overview of the asteroid models to which a participant has contributed?
Also, there is this nice DAMIT database - why not include the Asteroids@home user names to each of the models to which this project user has contributed?

I believe this would make contributions to the project even more attractive.

This seems like a very good idea. I dont know how the DAMIT database works, so I wonder if they would have to add a whole new field to each model to include the people who contributed to it. I suppose they could just put "contributed/computed by: <user> in the "notes" field or something.
