In honour of William Herschel's 275th birthday, a BOINC challenge has been started on theSkyNet POGS by the Astronomy.Ru forum members! Check out all the teams participating here:

Welcome challengers - we're glad to have you crunching our galaxies for us. We're looking forward to seeing if we can set a TFLOPS record on theSkyNet POGS with your help! Don't forget to login (with your BOINC email and password) to www.theskynet.org and check out what trophies you accumulate over the week, you can also check out your contribution to theSkyNet with our graphs and stats system (and even see the galaxies you're helping us process.) We also have a special theSkyNet trophy for all the challenge participants, look out for it after the challenge ends next week.

Once the challenge is over we'll dig out some (small) prizes for random members of winning team and for the individual who processes the most. Your contribution to advancing our knowledge of the Universe is appreciated and will never be forgotten. No doubt future generations will sing songs about your generosity, foresight, courage and commitment to scientific endeavour.

Glad it is going well. Excellent progress being made.

Looks like I missed this challenge, many days late and late entrants not allowed.
But it probably would not of mattered as I couldn't work out how to join the challenge anyway.
Perhaps next time I will get my act together.

BoincStat Team challenges are automatic. If you are on a team that has joined, just process the WU during the challenge. For more info. http://boincstats.com/en/page/faq
Note that you do NOT need to be a member of their forum, or any other services to use their stats or be in any Team or Project challenge.
There is a specific person that they consider to be your team leader that must sign up the team for any event. That signs up the whole team, so anybody processing the BOINC WU for that project is "participating".
You can always switch teams after the challenge if you wish.
(I'm not a "team-jumper" though it seems to be fairly common.)

Thanks JumpinJohnny, I have checked that information, unfortunately I don't appear to have that 'extra section' in my BAM menu that should contain the information about challenges.
It may have something to do with the user name I used to set up the BAM account or the fact I am not recognised as the Founder of any team.
I'll try changing that and then see if things all click together.

Obviously, you already know their setup and have gone down that road before.
... I'm the newbie here :)
So,, maybe you were a Team founder on several projects but they don't consider you to be the founder unless you founded "the most"....
And /or your TEAM ACCOUNT name possibly had a different e-mail than you are using???
Well then, Good Luck
JJ
