So, what did you think? - Page 6

post #51 of 187
technically I won something but then didn't, so either way I'm still happy to have participated.

I was a winner of the first drawing for portal, which was then void cause someone closed the window too fast

maybe a way to automatically keep track of winners?

also, grand prize should have been date with Z imo.

I'm trying to be really vocal here not because I'm upset I didn't win, but because I think I have a really good idea that could help the CC. The goal of my idea isn't to discourage new folders, (I am in this for the cure so I want as many folders as possible!) but to discourage people to only fold 50% of one WU because those are the requirements for signing up for the raffle. I want to encourage more new people that are interested in the prizes to take that little extra step to get into the higher tier that maybe they wouldn't have otherwise. If we get even a few extra people that normally would just do the minimum to sign up, to do the little bit more work folding to get into the higher tier because they want a shot at the better prizes then that would be a success.
This, I agree with him completely.

Two tier system - don't create insane requirements for the top tier, but make it so that it incentivizes folding a bit more. This way instead of one time poster or only folding for JUST the CC is not a greater incentive than possibly folding more during the year.

The top tier believe it or not would still have a huge pool of people but would provide true encouragement for those just joining to do more than just win a random doorprize and then disappear into the night.

Something like a postbit or some low requirement that still demonstrates some level of effort larger than just signing up and a wu or two.

Not a huge fan of the "top tier = only top output or high output" because we know there are some regular 24/7 folders that wouldn't meet the criteria and as mentioned it would be nothing short of a deterrent imo to new folders.

Folding is folding no matter what and they are still folding hard just like the rest of you.
I like it also being competitive in a way ( You passed me up the ranks). I was looking for some parts this yr (bang for the buck folding as I call it) but my doctor bills killed my plans more like 3 doctors. But thats life for me...keep chugging along.

Nobody suggested it and the thread was up for a few days.

I don't fold that much for OCN. Mostly on foldathons and CC.

I think only people at fold X amount of days (verified with history) can be entered in the draw.

For example, out of 10 days CC, you must have folded: 25+ units, more than X amount of points, X amount of hours (for slow machines) or something along those lines.

50 viewer limit was fixed by a couple re-streamers.
It was kind of slow to be honest.
Zodac didn't fix the code so I get the case.
Chris' screwed the code!
Lot of redraws and stuff.
I didn't win anything

Although, I had OCN2 stream music, Final Fantasy Piano, and some discussion about Vancouver and stuff with xd_1771

1. nah it's fun to watch the failures of others

2. As in create something where random people all over the world can press the generate button and it shows up on your screen. (It can be done)

3. More fun, music, someone talking, a screen that I don't have to look at 3 times to figure out the name, strippers? The list is endless

4. Again press a button and Z will vanish

We have no way of knowing you folded 25 units unless you use HFM and some people are required to use v7 for core 16 and others use FAHTracker.
As of now not much we can do, maybe in the future it will be easier to find out how much each person folds.

1.

2. We have 365 days to code something, let me know what you come up with.

3. More fun??? Anyways...
Music I couldn't this time for the reasons I stated a dozen times, my internet for the month is throttled due to a late bill from the owner of the house I didn't want to risk it lagging.

4. I will look for that button!
