Hi all,

I just joined this project and I find that when I log in and after I search for a team to join, it doesn't show the "Join team" option....

What is more puzzling is that to the right of the screen it shows the "log in" function, even though I am already logged in !!

It's not a credit issue, as I now have credit and still cannot join a team :-(

I guess this really is an admin issue....so can someone flag this up please?

regards from UK :-)

PS I have this EXACT same problem with the CAS@home project - see here:

You are clearly logged in since you were able to post here. To verify, in the upper right corner it should have your name and a link to log out. Once you get that, go to the team page, http://escatter11.fullerton.edu/nfs/team_display.php?teamid=618. On that page, the upper right corner should still have your name and a link to log out. The link to Join this team is just under Type near the bottom.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your reply.

I think the issue is with the BOINC code - as now that I have credits, I was able to join a team.

Before I had the credits, even though I was logged in, when I went to any teams page (in order to join it) at top right it had "log in".....so, clearly, before you have a specific number of credits, I would suggest that the BOINC server code doesn't recognise you as being logged in and hence the "Join this team" option, isn't available.

Now I have credits on this project, I've been able to join a team and all seems good.

FYI: I had the same issue with CAS@home and now I have credits on their project, so I've been able to join a team there as well.

Maybe there is a threshold that you have to attain, before you can join a team?
(But if that's the case, how come some people have zero credits and yet are members of a team ??)

regards
Tim
