I'm trying now to get a forum to start a BOINC team. Out of 853 members, only 2 have expressed interest so far. Geez!

Either they're just not interested, or some think it'll "mess up" their computer, or slow it down too much. Or maybe afraid it'll turn them into a Cyclops or something, I don't know.

Ignorance is Strength!

OK, well that's what I was wondering. So I can just rename the team under each project, and everything stays the same? Any members to the changed team name will be credited under that, and not the old name?

This would be good news!

Forgive the ignorance, but I didn't use BOINC much in the past since it was a PITA really. I got fed up and switched to F@H!

Thanks Ageless.

I feared it would be that. I can understand it, but then it's not good for those who've been running projects for several years, who might have stopped crunching then came back, but now may simply want to start a new team because the old team is defunct or whatever. Things change!

Well it's not all bad. I'll "lose" my SETI and Rosetta credits, but keep my CPDN credits.

Question: for CPDN, do I just go to "climateprediction.net preferences" in my acct. there, then "Administer" > "Edit team info " and change "Team name"? Surely it's not that easy?!!

I'd like to create a new team for an internet forum, then move my credits to it from my old team, (which I am the founder of). Can I do this, or will I have to start new credit with the new team?
