Due to some initial confusion on how to create a team, our group ended up with two teams -- "Mecantina" and "MEC Seti" The latter is a "place holder" where everyone joined, but to match the other projects, I want the "Mecantina" name intact.

"Mecantina" had one inactive member until I joined it today. It's founder is listed as a member on "MEC Seti"
I've initiated administrator transfer today after joining "Mecantina". It now looks like this:

[b]Team	        MECantina  | Quit team
founder of	MEC Seti   | Change team founder[/b]


I want to move all members to MECantina, then kill MEC Seti.

Questions:
1.) How can I delete an existing team that has no active members?
2.) Does moving from one team to another cause any loss of points on any team or member?

Regards,
mdutch

1) You can't delete a team. But the founder can rename it.

2) In some projects members moving to another team will not add all of their credits to that team - only the credits they gained after they joined that team will show against that team (SETI is one of these projects). In other projects members moving to another team will add all of their credits to that team and the team will instantly show the increase held by the new member. (CPDN Climate is one of these projects.)

Thanks. I think I have a plan now.
I wonder how many "ghost" teams are out there, with founders and no members?
And more importantly, do they have intelligent life?
