Arrow Teams: Join a Team!

Here are the the teams we have so far. If you would like to join a team or start your own, please post below.

Names in bold are the team "owners"--generally whoever first joined the team at NPLB. If anyone on whom this title has been bestowed wishes to transfer it to another team member, just make a post here to that effect and the deed will be done.

Policies/rules regarding teams:
-If you leave a team and join another, all your points earned before leaving remain with the old team. Due to the way our database is set up, this means we have to move your old points to another username (perhaps "OldTeam_x"), which will remain on OldTeam; your username x would be effectively reset to 0 points, at which point it will be changed to the new team. An unfortunate side effect of this is that you're busted back to ground zero in the individual stats as well. We may look into seamless team switching (a la BOINC) in the future, but for now such would be an administrative can of worms that we really don't want to open. The upshot is, you don't want to change teams willy-nilly (well, you could, but it would be kind of dumb); think long and hard before making a team change.

-The one exception to the above is if you're going from team "-" (no team) to a real team. In that case, per precedent of how such situations have been handled in the past, all your previous points will go to your new team.

New members: since this is one of the first places a lot of you will be going on first joining the project, it's also a good time to remind you that if you want to have email notifications of primes found, we need to have your email address. If you've submitted any results via PRPnet, we'll get your email address out of the logs and put it in our database so you're all set. If you want to use a different email address for notifications or have only used LLRnet thusfar, please drop either myself (Max a.k.a. mdettweiler, max@noprimeleftbehind.net) or Dave (a.k.a. AMDave), our database administrator, an email/PM.

The following is intended to be a list of all current team associations. As this list is human-maintained, it may have an occasional temporary discrepancy with what's seen in our stats database; in any such cases the database is probably correct.

Teams serve as a catalyst for friendly competition and can make prime searching a little more fun, especially during rallies. I highly recommend joining or starting one!
