More if necessary. Its a Competition. How do you expect to keep people in the TC is they can't even get the slightest information on their standings with others in their category or even the standing of their team in their division?
Please. As a long time member of the Folding Community, Team Competition, and of OCN fix the problem.
Agreed! In fact, besides the GTX470 I won (which happened to be the matching one to one I had bought off elchucko the month before) I’ve donated almost every prize I’ve won from folding back to the site (or to the prize pool for the next month). I don’t fold for prizes, I fold for the cause, but I love the TC because it has encouraged competition and has encouraged other folders and myself to push what we can do. Without the stats we don’t have this competition, we don’t have people doing everything they can for every last point, and that is really hurting the numbers that OCN should be putting up.
Honestly, is there anything we, the team captains, can do to help this situation? I mean, I would be willing to help in almost any way I could to get this back up and running so we can have an honest competition again. Seriously, if we could talk to our teams and all agree that we put the prizes on hold for 2 or 3 months so the funds can be put toward development of a better TC stats site, I would be all for that, and I’m sure I could get the blessing of my team, as I’m sure the other TC captains could as well.
