Message 1782 - Posted: 24 Nov 2016, 14:51:47 UTC

G'day.

Just joined up the other day, now I've my Pi 3 running (I use OSes on other computers that don't run U@H). I'm pleased to be able to finally contribute to a cool project like this.

However, I was unable to create the team I always create for every project. I figured I just needed to gain some credit to show I'm not a spammer, but I managed that earlier today, and I can still only join teams, not create.

So I wondered, is there also a time delay before new participants can create a team? What are the specific criteria, please?

TIA :-)

All I see in Opera, Firefox, even Safari mobile, is nothing loading for the team creation part of the page:

I will check this tomorrow, as I can't do this Tonight.. Or, you can just send me team name in PW, and I will create it for you myself...

No worries, it's nothing important, after all :-) I just like to spread my usual BOINC group around, even if it's very niche and has a mere handful of members. Though it has been around in SETI@home since pre-BOINC days! So I'm proud of that. I'll PM you the details, but again - no rush, no worries.

I've joined the Raspberry Pi group in the meantime *grins* Boy is it's leader dedicated to crunching work units! I wonder if he only used Pi's...

Ah, okay, I'm already on a team and didn't want to leave to make a new one so didn't take that last step.

Guess something has gone wrong since the anti-spam measure has been put in, that bit works but as you say you get a blank page after you successfully pass the robot test. Viewing the source code for the blank page shows it is the 'create a team' page though.

Indeed. While it's always been a wee bit arcane to be forced to search for a group before being able to create one, in this case creating a new group or editing a current group are broken, with only the blank page displaying.

Hi @krzyszp ,
I send you a PM for team creation request because of blank web page. I hope you will find time for processing it.

I don't like to beat on projects (and those who administer them) like this that depend on time and effort freely donated, for worthwhile causes. But I really do not think it helps gain volunteers, if such a basic mechanic as team creation and administration remains broken for months at a time :-(
