Hi,

When I go to the Amicable Numbers home page, and click on "Join", I enter my details and then tick the reCAPTCHA box. Everything seems to go well but I get the error message that I didn't complete the reCAPTCHA test!

Anyone else had this problem?

Best to use the BOINC Manager to directly add a project through the Add Projects function in the Tools menu than trying to add a project directly through the website.
Your problem is very common with a lot of projects invoking a ReCaptcha barrier and the solution to Join a project through the Manager is the easiest solution.

The only exceptions being a very few projects that will only let you add them via the manager if you already have an account. True of testing branch of CPDN but certainly used to be true of at least a couple of other projects though I forget which at the moment.

Thanks for that. I managed to join this way.

This is the error message I was getting:
