In order to permit folders who contribute regularly but do not have the resources to compete with the "big boys" and to enjoy the competitive aspects of folding and to have some fun, we are starting a team competition within Overclock.net. The team competition will have the following rules:
Each team is required to have exactly 4 members.
Each individual must fold under their own folding name and team 37726. We will tally the team scores and post updates on a regular basis.
The members of the winning team each month will have bragging rights, and their choice of prizes from Here
** When choosing a team name, please keep in mind that it needs to be done in good taste. If you are not sure if your new team name is acceptable, please ask before posting it.**
What you need to do
Each team should have a thread in the folding forum for their team. In the first post of the thread, each team member should be identified by their Overclock.net name and their folding name if it is different. The number of CPU cores contributed by each member should be identified as well.
If you have a partial team, create a thread for your team to recruit additional members. If you'd like to be more proactive in your recruitment, you can find members looking for a team here.
If you are looking to join a team, post your info here or respond directly to team threads that indicate the teams are looking for members. Include the number of CPU cores you are planning on contributing to the team.
One member of your team should be designated as team captain. The captain will receive any necessary PMs related to the competition.
Remember to fold for team 37726! Only points for our team will be counted in this competition (and for any other prizes on our site).
Please feel free to PM Blue_Devil or Lemans81, or post in this thread if you have any questions.
Ways to join/start a folding team:
Each folding team has a team thread with the number of team members, if any, they're looking for. Check these threads if you want to join a team.
Members looking for a team can also post in this thread.
Create a new thread in the folding forum, titled "Team <your team name> (3 members needed)". As you find team members, change the thread title to reflect your team's needs. PM me once your team is set up, so I can add you to the list.
