POSTPONED - Forum Folding War 2018
 
Welcome to the 2018 OCN Forum Folding War!  
 
 What? "What's the Forum Folding War?", I hear you ask. Well, in an effort to generate some momentum on OCN's [email protected] team, and to get some competitiveness out of you all, we've decided to split the overclock forum up into Folding teams based around specific groups on the forum.  When? February 26th to March 5th; starting and finishing promptly at noon UTC.

 Countdown to startCountdown to end  Teams? Okay, so confirmed teams we have: I need the team Captains to PM @axipher with the Team thread and the updated Team Bio so I can update the stats site.  Main Stats Page: http://folding.axihub.ca/ffw.php List of Teams: http://folding.axihub.ca/ffw_teams.php  Click Here to Signup Prizes?TBD     Have something to donate, send @axipher , @Simmons572 or @lanofsong a PM.    

Point System.
 
  • A team must have a minimum of 5 folders.
  
  • 4 categories for which points will be awarded.
 
1.    Total points.
2.    Points per folder.
3.    Number of Folders.
4.    # of new recruits (Never folded in a FFW before). 
  • Points system
This year we will try a points system similar to Formula One, but trim it to the number of teams entered, so if only 7 teams enter, you would use the values from 4th place down (i.e. 1st would get  12 points, 2nd 10 points etc.) Points awarded for finishing
Position - Points
1st - 25
2nd - 18
3rd - 15
4th - 12
5th - 10
6th - 8
7th - 6
8th - 4
9th - 2
10th - 1 
 How do I win? Sign up for a team on the stats website and as long as you fold one WU during the event, we will include you in the prize draw.   What else do I have to do?Fold your heart out. Use your team thread to ask questions, or stop by the Folding section and post a thread, We'll be happy to help.  

2-19-18: This event has been postponed until further notice due to some technical issues :o Sorry about this.

Team BOINC thread is up.  No sign-up link yet, since I think @axipher's site needs a reset. :thumb:

Initial post is almost impossible to read if you're using OCN Dark Theme, as a note.

But YAAAAAAAAY, we finally see the thread for Folding Forum Warfare after asking a few times ^_^

EDIT: Adding a picture for reference, but yeah, it's almost impossible to read.

(end edit)

BBQ's gonna BBQ ALL of the teams in a slow roaster overclocked to double the roasting power of the new ocn. Now that's almost cold roasting unfortunately. We're all doomed!

Sweet. I'm looking forward to the FFW, I remember enjoying my first one last year.

DarthBaggins 01-24-2018 12:30 PM

I guess I'll get the Second Hand Hounds (and Kitties) Thread started for this year. . lol


And it's up: https://www.overclock.net/forum/overc...l#post26578713

Woot! Lets rock!

Tex1954 01-30-2018 05:04 AM

I tried to sign up for Team BOINC and it says I am already on a team.

Wuz up with that? I thought the FFW was open to anyone and anybody... how am I already on some team?

:D

Tex1954 01-30-2018 05:04 AM

Buggy forum setup I think... sheesh...

:D

axipher 01-30-2018 05:18 AM

The teams still have last years participants on them. Sign-ups will all be reset tomorrow so every team will be empty.

Tex1954 01-30-2018 09:39 AM

Cool Beans!

:D

DarthBaggins 01-30-2018 11:10 AM

Guess what team I'm joining!

...That's right, team BBQ! :p

Simmons572 02-07-2018 01:11 PM

Just waiting on @Klue22 :whistle: :p

mmonnin 02-07-2018 02:43 PM

Please make the 1st option in the team dropdown a blank field that no one can successfully submit.

DarthBaggins 02-07-2018 05:17 PM

That would be a good idea

k4m1k4z3 02-09-2018 02:56 AM

When will the signup go live?

Hopefully soon :o


calling @axipher

DarthBaggins 02-09-2018 04:40 PM

Would think it would possibly coincide with the teams getting setup so we know who's competing.

:headscrat

Ithanul 02-10-2018 05:00 AM

Well, looks like I maybe unable to join in this year.
Way to much stuff going on with a move and me going on orders for about a month.

WhiteWulfe 02-18-2018 09:12 AM

So.... How's this going?

Simmons572 02-18-2018 04:29 PM

There's some stuff on the backend we're trying to work on. We'll have an update for you tomorrow :o

DarthBaggins 02-18-2018 09:19 PM

Well chop chop, lol

Could we have a foldathon instead?

As of now, a FAT is highly unlikely.......unless we have an informal one where we go by just the EOC stats :thinking:
Also, I have no way of sending a PM to the FAT group to raise awareness.

We are open to ideas :)

mmonnin 02-20-2018 07:44 AM

Ha, we lost that too with the vB switchover? :(

mbmumford 02-20-2018 05:28 PM

I’m here sitting in Florida on vacation, and it dawned on me that some competition should be soon. I’m now glad I checked, and saddened that mass messages can’t be sent out anymore.

JKuhn 02-21-2018 07:17 AM

I didn't even know about the 2018 FFW until I saw a team thread just now. Due to uncertain circumstances in the forseeable future, I think it might be best if someone else can lead Intel this year (I might move, and I don't know how my connectivity or access to my rig will be at first). But of course if things go well and nobody takes the role before me, then I'll be willing to lead again. Of course this also depends on when the FFW will take place.

How should I summon previous Intel folders so they're aware of this? I know it was easy in the past, but with this VB nonsense nothing is easy.

VS88 03-20-2018 12:14 AM

What happened ti this site? Did it die? What about foldathons? I hear nothing since 2 months.. Or is it just because of the fckd up VB..

Assuming you mean OCN but "site," no, it's not dead by any means. Activity is lower, but forums are still populated for sure. But this is due to the forum platform migration, yes.

Folding events seem to be temporarily on hold since there's apparently something up with the folding stats site we use for OCN. I don't want to say any details in case I just give out pure misinformation. Perhaps one of the folding editors could give a little more insight.

I'm flexing my Machines muscles to see where I'm at. I went from running it on a HTPC, wife's rig, My rig, another server; to nothing for four years :P The new client with webui is kinda neat. I have no idea how this thing will perform.

The forums are a bit less active.

Definitely can tell just by looking at the news section. I would post some news, but the stuff I read touches to close to politics or leads to easily into such discussion.
