Foundership change/request

Post by UBT - Mikee » Sun Jan 28, 2018 2:08 pm


Just had an odd email...

"Team member Helen Oktavia has asked that you
transfer foundership of UK BOINC Team in NFS@Home.
Please visit ... teamid=618
to grant or decline the request.

If you do not respond within 60 days, Helen Oktavia will
be allowed to become the team founder.

Please do not respond to this email.
The mailbox is not monitored and the email
was sent using an automated system."

Went to the NFS site to decline the change and found that ...

"Team member Helen Oktavia requested this team's foundership on 28 Jan 2018, but left the team, thus canceling the request."

Not sure what's going on but I advise that all team founders be on the look out.

Helen Oktavia is probably a false name as it's not listed at boincstats and appears to be from Indonesia, her new team name goes to team B19besi1 with zero credits. Not sure what's to be gained or why.

Hi Mike

Thanks for the heads-up.

I've had something like that happen in the past, but not for some time.

But this is another reason why we need to ensure that all project founders are ACTIVE members of UBT - else we could find we lose plenty of credits if our Team is hijacked on one (or more) projects.

Fortunately, you and I are the founders of most (if not all) of the active projects - those we are not founders of, are mostly now closed.

I would like to point out that I'm founder of the UBT SRBase team but if either of you wants it then I'm happy to give it up?
