I don't really understand the purpose of teams, I can guess that it's just a combined credit thing, but i'm interested in a way to gather everyone in a team to render one project.

Teams are very much a BOINC thing. They come with the BOINC software so you generally see them in every BOINC project.

They are just a way to make points a bit more competitive and encourage more participation amongst certain users. It's a nice touch for those who care about points and such.

I'm saying this in case you think teams are a BURP specific thing that was created here with a reason. It's just a BOINC feature that was left enabled for those that like it.

Well I saw this on renderfarm.fi too. I think it would be cool if what I mentioned about getting in a team to render one specific project, or just choosing what you want to render in general was a feature. But then I think that would defeat the purpose of spendable credits.
