If you have not played Foldit and have a URL anywhere in your account profile, you're most likely a SPAMer. Thus, within next couple of days, your account will be blocked, all your content unpoblished. If you have a problem with that, either download and play Foldit, remove URLs from your profile or give me a really good reason not to block you. Thanks.

Strange... my group is now missing

For some reason, I cannot access my group (GoFolders) anymore. Could you please check to see if an account called GoFolderAdmin or GoFoldersAdmin happened to fall into the list? That account was created by LennStar back then for managing the group but (as far as I know) wasn't used for playing at all-- but since that account is listed as the creator of the group, the group is now entirely missing. In fact, when I log into Foldit, the "Group Competition" tab is now blank for me as if I were not in a group anymore.

==> Now, I understand that the "group" is pretty much just me in the recent few months as LennStar has been rather inactive for quite a while-- either way, that means no evolver mode for me, which is a minor issue. But it's still strange that an entire group would be destroyed due to axing the group admin account...

Addendum to missing group bug

Here's the evidence:

http://fold.it/portal/user/92665
http://fold.it/portal/user/83730
(My account is indeed shown as group-less now, as is LennStar's)

http://fold.it/portal/node/987428/show_players
(Notice that my 8th-place finish is now not associated with a group)

http://fold.it/portal/node/987428/show_groups
(... despite that GoFolders somehow still showed up on the group competition for 268. The link to the group is no longer accessible, however.)

http://fold.it/portal/groups
(Notice that #7 is missing. I'm pretty sure that it was my group.)

==> Again, I really hate to make such a fuss about the issue, especially since everything would be back to normal in subsequent puzzles (minus the group being missing). What I'm more concerned about is the possible connection between this bug and the "coincidence" that none of the other groups received the scores they deserved for 268...

Infjamic, your group got

Infjamic, your group got deleted because its owner account was identified as a spamer by the antispam module. All content belonging to spam accounts got deleted. One false positive out 20K isn't too bad, I guess. In any case, I brought back your group and made you its owner. Here: http://fold.it/portal/node/986119

Hello ilya.makedon, my

Hello ilya.makedon,

my group, BOINC.Italy, is now missing too.
I think the reason is that the founder (GHz) is not active in FoldIt, but in our BOINC community he is the founder of all the BOINC.Italy team in the different BOINC projects, so we choose him as founder also for the FoldIt group.
Could you reactivate his account and the group as well?
We are not crazy folders, but sometimes happen that some of us play the game and need to share solutions.

Thank you.
