No, you cannot. You can only be a part of one team at a time. When you register for a hackathon, a single-member team is created for you automatically. However, when you join another team for collaboration, then this single-member team is automatically deactivated.

7) Can I remove members from my team?

Yes, you can if you are the team leader. Only the team leader can do the following:

  • Add members to a team until the maximum team size is reached
  • Remove members from the team until an idea (any team member's idea) is published Note: Once any team member's idea is published, then the team leader cannot remove anyone from the team.

8) Why am I unable to leave my current team?

You cannot leave your current team if:

  • Even one idea belonging to any of your team members is published
  • You are the team leader

9) I am unable to delete my idea. What do I do?

You cannot delete an idea once it is submitted. You can only edit it.

  • Send a request to the team that you want to join or accept another team's invitation to join them.

12) What will happen to the ideas that I have created and saved as drafts if I am removed from a team?

When you register for a hackathon, a single-member team is created automatically. This team is disabled when you join another team.
