Is it me, or is http://www.boincteams.com/ not available? I get an error "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.boincteams.com."

No, the day after it did load. Although hyper-slowly. Still not the fastest of places on the net. Then again, I know of a big project that's even slower. ;)

So there is no use for this "feature" for the second bigest team in BOINC, SETI.Germany.

To keep the same founder address may be usable, even for bigger teams, if some fake account is used to which more than one member have access, but the team description has to be project individual, not some boring, nonsensical, blah-blah without specialities for this project.

We have 28 founders on the BOINC projects, and we have a different description on all projects, with a standard part and some custom part in it. This has to stay this way, diversity is better than uniformity. If this "feature" will one day mess with our teams presentation, I think we will get unpleasant.

Who led this half-baked "feature" lose on the public?

Idea ....

If you setup your BOINC team with a general e-mail address (different from your project team founder e-mail address), then your team (by-the-same-name) on individual projects will not get updated.

If your team doesn't exist on a project (or new project), then your team name will get created with your general e-mail address. After team created, then you should be able to change founder's e-mail address to the individual who acts as team founder for THAT project.

That's how we will probably do it.

We thought about it several times, but originally decided against it. Now we are forced to do so, as if we will not use this BOINC wide teams, anyone can found a team called SETI.Germany on that list and we have even less control over it.

As David finally gave us our team back, we can now use it in this manner, unfortunately it took over a month because he didn't bother to ask us first is and how we liked to participate. In the projects set up after this implementation it will take us another month before we will have the team back via "initiate transfer" of the founder to some real persons.
