@CLR yep this is a new change rolling out, you need to have your board as a member of a team to add people to it, in other words "personal" boards are getting a lot more "personal".

When did this change get launched? 

I tried searching for documentation on this change but couldn't find it anywhere.

@Robin George My guess it's being rolled out to a limited number  of people first in order to see what happens (ie. do people cancel their trello account, do they find a work around, or do they upgrade to Business Class) and once they've used those early tests to ascertain some data they will roll it out to everyone and then announce it on their blog.

So I guess me and my team will have to look for another tool... shame

This is super frustrating and I have a bad taste in my mouth for Trello right now. I just advertised Trello to 2,000 team members because this tool was available, some of which will upgrade. Now, I guess we will have to find a different tool.  

Related question: How many teams can one create?

I see there is a limit to 10 open team boards, but I read that as open boards for a single team.

If there is no limit to the number of teams I can create, this new "requirement" would be an inconvenience and not a deal-breaker.

(Background: I'm a Web developer who uses Trello with my small-business clients to manage their projects. There are usually just 1 or 2 members from the client side.)
