Message 2447 - Posted: 21 Jan 2006 | 0:54:00 UTC

I'm posting this here as it seems more of a help topic than something that belongs in the team forum but I created a team when I signed up but now it's not listed in my account information or on the BOINC software. I went to the team page and selected create team just in case I had actually forgotten but it says I'm already in a team. Anyone know what's going on?

I flushed the teams that had only one member and no credit. It should
be possible to recreate it if you wish.

Hmm, well it didn't have any credit because tonight was the first time I've been able to get any work since the project started again.

Also it won't let me create it again as it gives the message I listed in the first post. When I try quit team it says no such team.

Any chance on fixing what broke when you did what you did? It'd be appreciated, thanks.

Try to quit the team now.

Hmm, I'm still getting the same messages as before. I select quit team and it says there is no such team, I select create team and it says I'm already in one.

Okay, try it now. There were actually two places it checks for your team before letting you quit. It doesn't make sense to me. If you want to quit a team, then quit. Even if you are not in one, or the team is not considered valid, it should let you reset your account so that you are in no team.

It seems that deleting these supposedly unused teams was a bad idea. Doh!
I'll try not do something like that again.

Thanks, that took care of it. Just one question now and sorry for the delay as this is the first chance I've had to post it but now it won't let me recreate the team. Is it still caught in limbo somewhere or has it probably just not died yet from the project since there's no members?

Nevermind, as an afterthought I did a search of the teams to see if it was still there and it was so I clicked on join to see if that'd work and it did so everything seems to be back to how it was before. Thanks again for the help, definitely appreciate it.
