I merged the 2 divisions because Division II is stupid. No offense to zodac, but folding in Division II makes people lose motivation because they feel insignificant.
The recruiting method I outlined is not cold calling, it's a way to ask active "warm to f@h" folders if they will join the competition. Since I've never seen your name on the referral line of the sign-up form, I'm guessing you've never even tried it. The reason I shared that method is because it's what I used, and I have had a lot of success doing it. If you have a better method, why don't you use it to fill your team?
TC is simply a side contest that people still enjoy that's aide's the folding@home project. If you cannot see the time and value in the folding@home project, maybe it's time for you to move on. Also, if you don't like the contest, don't stay in it. No ones forcing you to be here.
Worry not, I haven't given up, but I will neither have nor give any false hope, either. Like it or not, that's my leadership style.
Yes, it's cold calling, and yes, I've tried it. Thank you for confirming how unsuccessful it's been. I suppose I simply don't have your undefineable allure, the charm that's necessary for it to work. In that, I humbly concede to you: You're the better telemarketer. But don't imply that I haven't tried to get new members on the team because that just isn't true.
And as for what TC is, we've always disagreed on that. You think it's just something that should be there because it always has been. To you, TC is just defining the categories and adding up the points. To me it's a lot more than that: It's where some of the top producers of OCN's larger team can come together and motivate one another to push farther and do more for the project. That's why, despite the near constant mismanagement, I've stuck around. Simply put, it's important to me.
