Sorry to bother you, but I seem to have made a couple of blunders.

I joined Leiden a few days and I was using BAM to create the account. I then tried to join "Canada" team, but BAM didn't find it, so I used BAM to create a new "Canada" team. But it still didn't seem to work. So I manually created a "Canada" team using your website.

Then, I found out there already was a "Canada" team, so I manually joined it.

Now there are 2 extra "Canada" teams (id=330 and id=331) with no members. If you could, please delete these teams so future new members and stat-gathering systems don't get confused.


PS) I was surprised that I was able to create a "Canada" team in the first place. Every other BOINC website prevents the creation of a new teams with the same name. Perhaps Leiden should too.

Well, see, usually when wiping things from the database, it'll break other things on here, so I am not so sure if that is possible. What you could try is to leave a message in the other Canada teams, pointing to your real Canada team.

Yet in the mean time I did ask Mark if he could delete the other entries without breaking things.

Done... Teams 330 and 331 are gone... Might still show on the web cause of caching, but they should be gone soon ;-)....
