OK Team. I need a opinion from EVERYBODY on this.
Its has been suggested at some point that we do a HFM Live stats site for the team. I like the idea. It allows any one of us to be able to watch what the rest of the team is doing with their hardware and would replace the General Stats on the OP of the first page. This would not have to to be for your entire rig. Just the piece of hardware that you are folding for the team with. This way if one of us notices that another Team Member has been offline or not producing we can contact them via PM and find out if all is OK. (The team members may even exchange email addresses to contact fellow team members.)
So. Here's what I need. I need a vote of Yes or No to the Live HFM Team Stats Pages. I need this ASAP. If a majority of the team members respond and 1 or 2 do not then I am sorry. Here is a copy of the PM I have received from the head of the Team Folding Section.
The HFM.net application is used to monitor your live folding, and the application has the option to create a website that can be shared with anyone. There are a few guides available on overclock.net that will assist you with installing the application, and successfully creating a website. Those posts are located here: Installing HFM on Windows, Installing HFM on Ubuntu, Creating a website with HFM (ignore dydns, it's not needed).
However, Team Captains will decide on whether HFM is mandatory for their teams. If it is mandatory for a team, you will have to install it to join, or stay on that team. If you fail to comply, you may be kicked off the team, or may be unable to join a team that enforces mandatory HFM. A list will be added below outlining which teams do or do not require HFM by July 15th, 2012, and the rule will be made live for teams on August 1st, 2012.
I already have a Dropbox account and since I am the Captain have no problem setting up a folder that I can make public to the team members and those in charge of the Team Competition.(just in case) I am already researching the best way to set this up in case the vote passes for us to do this. Remember, I need everyones participation in this. We are a team. Not a Dictatorship. However if I receive no responses to this I will make the decision myself.
