It appears that several teams decided to take the projects that had the highest TC between the various teams, and re-name the team in that project to Polish National Team. Then everyone abandoned the teams with the lowest TC and transferred to the new team.
#24 out of nowhere.

Are you suggesting that there has been some nefarious activity?

It's still manipulating the system to produce artificial results. More a bit unsportsmanlike I would say.....

It's a good move and nothing for anyone to criticize Artur. As something very unusual to happen in BOINC I am interested to see how you do and wish you the very best.

As Blurf and others have pointed out, this is permissible within the rules of the Project, and no transgressions have been made. Whilst we may have our own personal opinions about this, let's make sure that this doesn't turn into a Team Poland bashing thread.

This tidbit was pointed out to me earlier by someone who doesn't really post here, and though I find it a bit awkward, I guess whatever floats the boat works OK for me....

But I agree with Chris that this should go by the wayside since no rules have been broken. Life is too short anyway.
