I am new to SETI, and already have 2 computers crunching numbers. I am a bit disappointed in the lack of actual "input" the user has on the project. I was expecting a bit more involvement of the user to make them feel like they are accomplishing something. The team I joined hasn't even contacted me, so this sense of "camaraderie" I keep reading about in the forums is non-existent. Am I missing something?

Visit your teams website and try posting something in their forum.

Yeah...a more active team....

Calm Chaos actually had someone complaining about the fact that we talk to each other.....

* wink *

Just kidding goes to " you know who " lmao

Seriously though, if you want to be on a team where the members actually contact each other, there are lots of teams out there like that.

Calm Chaos does, as does SETI.USA, as does Synergy.

There are lots of choices out there if you are dissatisfied with your current team.

We have our own forums, and if you want to check them out, you don't have to join the team. We would be happy if you did, but it's not required to be a member of our forums.

Come on over and check us out. Just click on the Forums link in my Signature.

Hear hear! Join an active team! What do you want from your team? Lots of posting here, plenty or live chat (IRC etc.), active message boards? Browse some of the various team message boards or join in with their chat rooms and see what you like.

It is only a matter of how much your team desires to communicate.

Some teams communicate alot, some don't at all.

Despite trying to fight the temptation to put in a shamless plug for my team,*cough* SETI.USA *cough* I do have to ask.....

Aaron, where did you find that pic? I've never seen a CENTAF or any other patch small enough to be used as an avatar.
