So, a while back, I mass created teams on many BOINC projects, as a preemptive action for when my group expands. Over time, my group did expand, and I find myself needing to change the placeholder description which told users to go focus on one specific project first. However, when I changed the description, I found that the next day, it had reverted back to the placeholder description. I've tried this on multiple projects, and they all have the same issue, so this must be some global BOINC issue, as I'm not sure how badly I would have to be screwing up writing a single sentence description.

Anyone have any idea what's up?

If you ever set up your team through BOINC Wide Teams, even if only to take a look-see here, then that's what'll overwrite your changes. Make the changes at BWT instead and they'll propagate to the projects automatically.
