Message 68430 - Posted: 21 Mar 2016, 12:30:22 UTC

Hello,

I have been trying to join a team but when I find the team I'm looking for, and then attempt to login, I receive the error message that reads: "No account with email address XXXXXXX@XXXX.com exists. Please go back and try again."

However, here I am posting on the message boards. I have also tried to recreate my account and it says that it already exists.

I feel that I am stuck in some kind of limbo, does anyone have a fix for this problem?

Thanks,

Beerfoot

Teams are only used on project pages, or when you make your own through the BOINC Wide Team page at https://boinc.berkeley.edu/teams/.

Here on the forums, or the front page, or anywhere else on the BOINC domain other than the BWT page teams aren't used and so you cannot join one.
