A teammate of me couldn't play a shared solution by a new team member.
She could download but when she wanted to load that solution she got the message:
this solution was created by a different group and cannot be loaded

In my opinion any solution that can be shared with your team should be able to be evo'd, one exception if it was an evo of another group, but then it should not be able to be shared with the new group.
But if someone never belonged to a group anything he shares with his group should be possible to evo.

That has always been the case with new team members. Once the new player improves it a bit it can be reshared and evo'd. There needs to be improvement while a team member first. At least, that has been our experience with new players.

Tx, now that we know this this feedback can be closed. No need for a chance, because a small improvement should pose not a real problem.

Yet another piece of basic housekeeping which should be written down for groups. Of course the preference in the extant foldit 'community leadership' is cold mountain style , so that level of communication would be an anathema. :D

Why not just have a page on creating a group or being added as an admin that has all such housekeeping?

Great idea, Dawn. That's definitely something we can explore over here.
