Due to recent attempts at spamming you are now required to have a valid email address to post to the forums. Sorry for the inconvenience, blame it on the spammers.

And in a similar vein you now have to have at least 0.0001 avg credit to create or edit your profile. Sorry guys, there's no way we can keep up with automated spam-bots creating new fake but almost believable profiles every 30 secs.

Why average, why not just any credit?

Because that's the feature that BOINC has for its profile pages.
(And any credit from within quite some time will give you a recent avg credit of more than this).

Also, a valid email address is now required in order to create/edit team descriptions.

18691 teams (or around 70MB of spam) have been removed and another few are on the list to be removed next weekend. The team descriptions were spam.
[Edit:] An additional 34 teams were removed.
