    Following the update to the OcUK forum some of the links on BOINC projects for the team are out of date, either the link to the .jpeg no longer works or the link to the Distributed Computing Projects folder is out of date so it now displays the top-level of the forum. Hanluc, not sure if you have already changed some of yours, for example Enigma is using the new .jpeg but hasn't had the 'Web site' field updated ?

    I think I have done the few I administer, but if I've missed one let me know.

    These are the contents for the team image and sub-forum fields to point to the right things...

    I noticed the other day that the team logo had changed so I altered the boinc wide team info, but I didn't notice that the team URL was wrong :o I have altered it now, so all projects created under boinc wide (present and future) will have the correct info and logo picture and I have also change the info & logo on projects that were not part of boinc wide teams individually. Likewise if I have missed any let me know.

    Not under my control are

    Leiden classic & NFS (Phil)
    Einstein & Milkyway (Derk)
    Seti (Berserker)

    I'll send them emails.

    I sent them emails but non of the projects above have had their team url & description changed.
    I've requested foundership so I can amend them myself.

    If the current founders read this please change our...
    team URL to: forums.overclockers.co.uk/forums/team-ocuk-distributed-computing-projects.39/
    Description: <img src= "http://i.picpar.com/Kyqc.jpg"><br>A bunch of dedicated performance hardware enthusiasts who are proud to be part of The World's Finest Team.<br>

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Phil declined Leiden classic & NFS almost immediately. I sent him and the others a request to amend our team info via the project's PM system also. Hopefully he'll see that and do so.

    What have they done to the forum?!

    I'll say this - hanluc knows how to get my attention!

    SETI has been updated. The Team OcUK website will also be done shortly.

    Nothing like a hostile takeover attempt to grab ones attention :D
    Thanks for sorting that out.

    Well, you almost succeeded. Welcome to your new role as team admin! :)

    All of the Team founders have now rejected my foundership requests with varying success.

    Berserker amended SETI :)
    Phil amended Leiden Classical :) but not NFS :confused:
    Derk hasn't amended anything :(

    Not much more I can unfortunately.
    At least the majority of our BOINC teams have the correct logo & URL.

    Have found a couple more that need changing:

    Collatz - jondi_hanluc - should be easy to get changed :)
    Rosetta - Team_OcUK - no idea who that is, might need a takeover bid :D

    Also, looks like Phil has changed NFS but has fallen foul of Boinc only wanting anything after the : being input into the 'Web site' field.
    Edit: Have just noticed that jondi_hanluc is an admin for NFS, does that give you the ability to change it if Phil doesn't ?

    I see, the king is dead, long live the king, rub it in why don't ya.

    Foundership transfer has been disabled on Rosetta for years after it was abused by a team that took foundership of another team, booted all the members off and installed their own :D
    Thread's here: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=4238

    Done :)

    Team tactics taken to the extreme there :D
    I had a quick look but it seems the Teddies are no more, it was 9 years ago though, was just wondering if they were fans of the 50's, were all called Edward, had a particular liking for lingerie...
