So it appears that Enigma@Home now requires an invitation code for new users. Does anyone know if this invitation code has been published anywhere?

There is no mention of it on the Enigma site and I have not recieved a reply on the project forum either. I may be missing something obvious but if the code has not been published then the project is effectivly closed to new users.

Strange - their account creation page says an invite is needed but the same sentences says not to use the form!

I am a member but it has been a long time and I do not remember if I had to get an invite.

There is a way to double-check.

If you are a member of boincstats then you can go to their "sign up for projects" page and see if there is a space for invites as shown here

I've tested it through BOINCstats BAM and through the website (using a test account) and both now require an Invitation code. Like yourself I've been a member of the project for a few years and dont remember needing a code when I first joined.

I decided to have a look as a new user mentioned it to when they were trying to start on the project.
