Thinking about jumping ship...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My current Folding team in a different forum just doesn't seem to get it. Though the members we do have on our team appreciate the cause and the good they're doing, there is a terrible lack of support and appreciation for fellow team members. Getting people to acknowledge each other or talk about the team is like pulling teeth whenever a thread is started in one of the forums. Also, out of the 40 members who have joined the team, there are now only 29 members "active". Of those, 13 aren't even averaging 1,000 points A WEEK.

Well, here... see for yourself.

Though we are steadily moving through the ranks, I feel my "services" might be better appreciated elsewhere.

I do love Classic Chevys, but I'd like people to get behind the cause a little more. I've tried a few times lobbying in the forums, but the codgers there just aren't interested.

Maybe I'm the unappreciative one...

Sorry for the rant/vent... At least the work ALL goes to a good cause regardless of who's on who's team...

I have the same problem on a forum I am on. This GPU client kicked them a bit, actually, because it lifts the entire team. We've been steadily dying, but now with two GPUs we're gaining spots every day. People are encouraged by it, and are now folding on their CPUs and PS3s.

I guess (and this is prejudiced me talking) that there aren't too many CUDA-enabled GPUs or PS3s on a classic chevy forum..

Well, oddly enough there are some serious gear heads here that appreciate folding..
GibsonNova, 455Buick and my self are a few that I know off.
Most gear heads only appreciate the computer part when they are tinkering with programmable timing and fuel delivery and have little time or dedication to any other PC things.
So long as you keep folding, for what ever team is unimportant in the big picture

Its really up to you

Switching to a more involved/active team can make for a positive change. It'll bring back that competitive flame that you might of lost perviously and might make you want to donate more by building new folding rigs

Regardless of your decision, Stanford is going to benefit from it anyways.

It's more of a rant than anything. You guys seem great, and I like the fact that you have mini-contests and great comradery/tech support and such.

I'd hate to start over again at zero though, too... LOL The old 930 Presler is responsible for about 150K of points here, and i get weepy just thinking about it... and why I didn't upgrade sooner...

I dunno. And yeah, the competition is a bit lacking on my team right now...

Maybe once we break into the 500's, and I'm at 500K points. That would be like a double omen sort of thing...
