"The Knights Who Say Ni!" have now opened a Thread about somebody (perhaps mistakenly) initiating a Team Transfer. See it at http://www.kwsnforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=13170 for info. This is some info about this bino54 character...

Could someone in a position of authority please block this possible attempt at a hostile takeover of our team. Please visit our forum for any other information you need.

Normally if someone inadvertantly clicks the button, the owner of the team can reject it. If the Owner does not responds then a transfer can happen.

The person that clicks the button is supposed to be a "Team Member"

This bino person is definately not a team member. Unfortunately we're having difficulty in getting in touch with our SETI founder at this time. Regardless, this bino cannot be allowed to take our team over. Is there a way to void this persons bid to take over the team. This would allow us to put in for a foundership change from an official member. As it is now none of us can do that. If this person is allowed to take over our team we doubt we'd be able to get it back as we would have to request a change from him which he'd probably deny.

OK, the way it is SUPPOSED to work.

Only a team member can ask for a team founder change.
Once that team member leaves the team, the founder change request is canceled.
Only one team founder change can be requested every few (6?) months.

You can have David Anderson, Matt Lebofsky, or Eric Korpela look into it.

It is currently Easter weekend. I would not expect to see any of them in the office until around 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Savings time (UTC -9?) tomorrow.

Also, if I remember correctly (i.e.-the way it's supposed to work)) is the team founder has two months to respond to and reject the new transfer request...

I hate to see something like this happening to any team, but especially KWSN. Ya'll hold a special place in my heart for...various reasons. ;)
