In reviewing my account screen, under the "Teams" section, I'm correctly identified as a member of "BOINC Synergy". However, on a second line, it shows "The Planetary Society" and presents me with the option to "change Team founder".

Why would I be given this option if I'm not a member of "The Planetary Society" team?

Yikes!
BOINC Synergy here also. As it should be. But no second line for me.

You are indeed listed as the founder of the Planetary Society team, even though you are not a member of the team. Those two bits of information are stored in two different places. They should stay in sync, but somehow got mixed up.


Did you just notice this recently?

Would the easiest solution be to pick one of the 5 choices given when I select "Change Team Founder"? It appears "The Planetary Society's" most active participant is Aaron Finney -- if there was a way to contact him about becoming the new team founder, I'd just make the change. Or do you want to solve this another way, Wormholio?

Before you change, I'd like to write and run a diagnostic routine to see how many cases like this exist in the database. After that, you should try to change to someone else. If that fails, I can change it "by hand".

I've now done this. There are 48 teams where the founder is no longer a member. Of those, 35 are empty teams (zero members), while 13 are not.

Please now try the transfer function.
