The recent server update has resolved this small issue.

There is a line in the <head> of the index page that makes the text http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway_cgi/cgi appear at the top of the page when viewing in a browser.
<scheduler>http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway_cgi/cgi</scheduler>

Other BOINC projects have that commented out and that text doesn't appear when viewing in a browser.
<!-- <scheduler>http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway_cgi/cgi</scheduler> -->

Would this work here?

Thanks for your time and information Jake, and my apologies for hijacking this thread.
I agree that it's most fair and more interesting to wait again.

As a side note, I just had another founder transfer fail on another project and this time noticed this response after I re-initiated transfer:
SMTP connect() failed. https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting
The current founder has been notified of your request by email and private message.


Likely not the problem on this site, and maybe just an insignificant mail send fail, but could something like that block some other call to the code and so not actually initiate founder transfer?

Thanks!
I no longer see the database error and I agree that the error did not cause the founder transfer fail because the database error was there for a least one other project (Collatz) where the transfer could be completed.

May I burden you further and ask if you can explain your fix simply enough for me to forward the info to other projects that may be experiencing the same database error?

Also, may I burden you even further to ask you to investigate why the founder transfer may have failed?

I can wait another 60 days to try if you need.

I am not sure what method you were using though. Maybe you can give me a little more direction to where exactly you were seeing an issue.

When you are a member of a team you have an option on the projects team page to initiate a Team foundership change.

I think there may be two seperate issues here.
I see the same database error when logged into the team page at Collatz but I was still able to finalize the founder transfer there.
I don't see the database error on the few BOINC projects that didn't show the option to finalize the transfer after the required wait period.

When I'm logged into this site and visit my team page I get a database error that is not there if I'm logged out.



Also, I requested a change of foundership and after the 60 day grace period instead of being presented with the option to finalize the transfer, I could only choose to initiate the transfer again.
I'm not sure that the error is related to the change of foundership fail because I've had the fail occur on 3 or 4 other BOINC project sites that didn't display the error - but I'm sure I've seen that error before on other project's team pages.

That's done it!
You have sorted through my confusion and Profiles can now be updated!

Thanks for looking into this Jake. I see what you have removed, but it's still not working for me.
I think as a final step you need to add
<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" async defer></script>
before the </head> tag.

The head code that you have now is
<head>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >
<title>Edit your profile</title>
<link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/main.css" media="all">
<link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/white.css">
<link rel=alternate type="application/rss+xml" title="MilkyWay@Home RSS 2.0" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/rss_main.php">

</head>


But it should be:
<head>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >
<title>Edit your profile</title>
<link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/main.css" media="all">
<link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/white.css">
<link rel=alternate type="application/rss+xml" title="MilkyWay@Home RSS 2.0" href="http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/rss_main.php">
<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" async defer></script>

</head>

I missed the most important fact that you must paste this snippet before the closing </head> tag on your page template:
<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" async defer></script>
along with:
<div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="#"></div>
in the body
I copied the code for your create_profile page with those changes (and used my site key) and it looks good:

http://boincsynergy.ca/test_create_profile.php

Having said all that, the way it is now is one way to stop spammers :)

I was comparing Milkyway's "create_profile.php" page code to another BOINC project's code.

That other project's page did not include (in Line 253)
<script>var RecaptchaOptions = { theme : 'white' };</script>

But did include
<div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="#"></div>

Which seems to bring up the reCAPTCHA "I'm not a robot" checkbox and will hopefully avoid the Your reCAPTCHA response was not correct. Please try again error that we get now.

I also came across this:
calls to reCAPTCHA v1 API will not work after March 31, 2018

in making the new search there was a problem with the new volume.txt file not being read by the application correctly. there might be a few more broken wus out there - but this should be fixed for newer ones.

Yes. After a bunch of error-out tasks, I see successful completions now.
