The forum folding war is upon us! The war will be held from Feb 1 to Feb 8, beginning and ending at Noon UTC.

The Lanyards is a team devoted to the fans of [email protected] merchandise (ahem admins!), specifically the coveted lanyards that were released several years ago. So lets all fold together and show the higher ups just how much we love OCN and Folding related gear.

If you have no idea what the Forum Folding War (FFW) is, see the FAQ below.

What is it?
The FFW is a week long event every December. Members of the Folding selection create various teams representing anything and everything. The team that folds the most points wins!

Are there any restrictions?
No, each team can have any number of people folding on any amount of hardware.

Are there prizes?
YES! The winning team will get prizes from a "special" prize pool. All other teams will draw from a general pool.

Why should I fold for your team?
Because for years the same teams have dominated the event. Also, its more likely that OCN will bring back the lanyards if we can show more support!

I'm a first time folder, can I join?
Of course! There are a ton of helpful people in the folding section. You can PM me or any of the staff, or just simply post in this thread.

What a silly name for a team. Who came up with this idea anyway?
Team name inspiration goes to bigblock990, you can blame him.

Update!
bfromcolo has decided to donate one of his unused lanyards to our team! The lanyard below will be awarded to a random member of this team at the conclusion of the competition. Fold on!


Update #2!

A big round of thanks to the Boinc Editor Tictoc for also donating one of his unused lanyards to the team! This lanyard will also go to a random participant on this team.

Update #3!
Because of the mounting pressure from other teams, I have decided to add a "recruitment bonus." If you recruit someone to this team (and they admit you did) then you will be entered TWICE into the drawing to win a lanyard!

I was tempted to start a rival team called The 2014 Foldathon Badges, but The Lanyards sounds cooler.

Count me in!

The code in the OP for the sig isn't centered. I had to do that myself, then I copied the centered version code and posted it.

I guess I didn't think that some people might not want to have it centered in there sig. Your good to leave it as is, and let each team member pick.

I wish the list was anywhere near correct. Nearly 70% of the people on that list show as having participated, but go to check EOC and goose eggs everywhere for the duration of 2014.

Quite likely. I know plenty of people that should be on the list that aren't.

Still waiting on my girlfriend to make our cover picture more pretty and make us an avatar...

I'd do it myself but my photoshop skills are pretty lacking.
