I have a new CSF teammate who wants to join the GPUGRID.net project.
When you try to create an account, this is the error message that appears.

Can he (or she) create an account from BOINC Manager's 'attach to project' wizard? That's the preferred method - the website form tends to attract spammers, and may have been disabled for that reason until BOINC finally gets round to implementing email address verification.

Thanks so much for the tip, Richard :)
I will ask him to try this method.
But this does'nt solve the problem and certainly deprives the project of many new volunteers :(

Your method worked, Richard.
Thanks again :)
Hopefully they can find an anti-spam solution that does'nt prevent the creation of new accounts via the GPUG interface.

Yeah thanks for pointing it out. We added now a message instead of a dead link:
