I see now mike. That may actually work. But I will not allow any sort of multiplier to be added.

I was opposed to the multiplier thing myself. Any type of device used to create artificial points or limit others is a negative in my book.

I know there will always be a money issue, and those with more of it will always have a better shot. But, there is only so much that you can do before it starts to detract from the competition.

The Q9550 can compete with an i5 rig or an i7 w/o HT. It's the Q6600 that will get left behind, but if there are 9800gt's and gts 250 folding as well, that will even the odds. Really the only downside I see is, if you get a team with 4 gtx 275/285. That would kind of take the fun out of things, but they can be beat. My i5 can still put out more points than any gtx 285. It just depends on how we clock them.

My idea can work for the regular competition as well. It's time for a change and more and more people have quads now. The original guidelines were made years ago, and the argument as of late was "so that everyone has a shot." Well, not everyone wants to play.

Honestly, I have no idea if it will work or bring more people. It's just an attempt at change. I personally would like to see just one competition. There would just have to be someway or rule to where things can remain somewhat balanced.

5ghz x 4 cores thats 20 cores and + hyperthreads thats 5ghz x 8 cores thats 40 cores on a i7

and 4.2ghz x 8 cores is 33ghz so basicly 33 cores

I agree for the most part.

It seems as if both competitions have been slumping lately. It also seems as if people on this forum have been losing interest in folding (I know there are reasons for this, like electricity and such).

This could be a good way to spark interest in folding for OCN again. It used to be that people wanted a folding post-bit. But the e-peen of that has worn off. Perhaps merging the remaining competitions into a larger, OCN wide competition (instead of separating the higher producing single GPU's), is the best way. Within that, maybe separate things into classes:

-Dual-Core's
-Quad-Core's
-Nvidia GPU's
-ATI GPU's

Something like this maybe. Within one subforum, instead of divided. Then those interested in folding don't have to differentiate between the Original Comp, the GPU Comp, etc.

Why are multipliers such a bad idea? I think that would work great.

Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

For the sake of keeping score/creating false points. Mortimersnerd and myself are working on a program for this sake.

I think we are missing the fact that folding for the cause is the point yes, but when it isnt fun and is costing you a large chunk of time and money it takes more then that to stay involved in it!
