The team creation form at https://moowrap.net/team_create_form.php is returning the false error message "Your reCAPTCHA response was not correct. Please try again." whenever a submission is attempted, despite the CAPTCHA challenge was solved before submission.

As far as I am aware, this problem has existed since ecigator reported it 3 years ago, back in Aug 2020. ecigator returned to open a new thread of enquiry last year (Aug 2022), only to receive the cold shoulder treatment yet again. This can be quite frustrating to anyone looking to build team credit at your project, your inaction is turning potential crunchers away.

If anyone from the administration team had stumbled upon this message, please kindly spare us a minute of your precious time and provide an update, bare minimum responses such as "it works for me/don't care/won't fix" would be sufficient and much appreciated.

If you have Boinc on a couple different pc's you can go into the Boinc folder of one that IS on the right Team and copy that into the Moo folder here, be sure you have no tasks as they will all be deleted and you need to exit Boinc to do it. I have multiple pc and keep a couple of that xml file, in Windows it is c:\program data\boinc and you will all the different project xml files that tell Boinc what account ot use and the Team you are on etc etc, anyway I have a copy of my xml files on a USB stick and whenever I setup a new pc it's the first thing I do after installing Boinc. Yes the same file works for Windows and Linux pc's but I have not tried it on a Mac yet. For instance this is mine showing the Team data:

<gui_url>
<name>Moo! Wrapper</name>
<description>The Moo! Wrapper project</description>
<url>https://moowrap.net/</url>
</gui_url>
<gui_url>
<name>Your account</name>
<description>View your account information and credit totals</description>
<url>https://moowrap.net/show_user.php?userid=2340</url>
</gui_url>
<ifteam>
<gui_url>
<name>Your team</name>
<description>Info about The Final Front Ear</description>
<url>https://moowrap.net/team_display.php?teamid=555</url>
</gui_url>

It's next to the last line in the file and you should be able to copy one from a working project into your Moo xml file as all the Projects use a standard Team list they draw from.

Thanks for helping out, unfortunately it is not working out for me, here are the steps I have taken as (I believe) you have instructed:

1. Suspend and abort all current tasks
2. Exit BOINC
3. Go to C:\ProgramData\BOINC and open up account_moowrap.net.xml
3. Inject team data from my other project, in this case GPUGRID, so the final xml looks like this:

<gui_urls>
<gui_url>
<name>Moo! Wrapper</name>
<description>The Moo! Wrapper project</description>
<url>https://moowrap.net/</url>
</gui_url>
<gui_url>
<name>Your account</name>
<description>View your account information and credit totals</description>
<url>https://moowrap.net/show_user.php?userid=329008</url>
</gui_url>
<ifteam>
<gui_url>
<name>Team</name>
<description>Info about UC Berkeley</description>
<url>https://www.gpugrid.net/team_display.php?teamid=177</url>
</gui_url>
</ifteam>
</gui_urls>

When I restarted BOINC, according to the GUI, Moo! Wrapper remained teamless. After a few minutes, BOINC automatically called home with Moo! Wrapper's server and reset the xml back to where it was. I am not so sure what went wrong here.

Once again, I appreciate your help.

I think this only works if you created a universal team years ago. They abandoned that long ago so now new teams each have a different Team ID for each project. If one had a way to discover their Team ID for Moowrap or LHC they could display their team link. But I suspect that projects like LHC and Moowrap abandoned team creation when universal team creation was abandoned by BOINC.
It would be nice if they'd implement team creation but I doubt they ever will.
