You don't need to use this thread. We have a new, automated system: http://www.overclock.net/t/1164344/apply-for-your-ocn-folding-postbit-here/0_100

If you do not follow the procedures listed below, you will not receive your postbit in a timely manner. Please read ALL of the below information - it is all pertinent to you getting your postbit icon!

All active overclock.net folders will receive a special icon in their postbit.

In order to get yours, please follow these exact instructions:

Do:
(1) Fold until you submit sufficient Work Units to earn 50,000pts. You can search for your account's stats at Extreme here. This will require more than one WU, and the number of WUs will depend on the WUs submitted.
(2) Once you have earnt enough points, post your folding name in this thread, along with a link to your stats page at Extreme.

Do Not:
(1) Post before your have enough points. You will not be added to the database otherwise. Posting prior to being listed may result in long delays in being added (old check ins only get processed every few weeks, as compared to new check ins, which get processed weekly).
(2) Post multiple times in this thread. This just creates more work for us as we have more posts to go through.
(3) Post back here after an absence from folding. Your name will remain in the database indefinitely, so you do not need to check back in. If you lose your postbit, it will reappear once you start Folding again.
(4) Post anything other than check ins in this thread. All off topic posts will result in an infraction. Please consider this fair warning.
(5) Ask folding questions in this thread. Please create a thread in the folding forum if you need any help or have any questions.

As an example of how a check-in post should look, please see Chipp's example in post #2.

Just a bit more info - (updated Sept. 16)
Getting your postbit info is a three step process on our end. First, the info you post is manually checked against Stanford's top 1500 list, and if it checks out, your check in post will be marked as "Check in verified". If you see "Not on Stanford's top 1500 list as of [time] on [date]", your folding name as posted did not show on Stanford's site. If this happens, DO NOT check in again. Your info will be checked periodically and will be entered in our system once it checks out. Next, your profile on our site gets updated with your folding name. You'll know that the second step has occurred if you see "Welcome to Team 37726!" as an edit reason to your check in post. Finally, our system does daily automatic updates, and it's at this time that the folding postbit info gets applied. The first step happens frequently if not daily, the second step happens at least a couple of times a week, and the final step happens daily. Note that the entire process does NOT take 24 hours; the 24 hours listed above is the time from the "Welcome to Team 37726!" message to the postbit appearing.

Update December 26th 2008:
Please note that the postbit is added or removed automatically once it has been entered for the first time. If you were an active Folder who has since stopped, lost your postbit, but now wants to fold again there is no need to re-post in this thread. The postbit will come back automatically. In other words, you only need to post in this thread once, ever.

Update Feb 28th 2009:
Please note that in order to speed up the process of adding postbits, it is now required to include a link to your EOC stats page. This is done by going to folding.extremeoverclocking.com, using the box on the left-hand side of the site to search for your [email protected] username, and then copying that URL into your post here. Is seems like not a lot of trouble, but when updating tens of postbits at a time it really can bog down the process. Thank you.

Update 15th August 2010:
The requirements have been changed, from needing to be in the top 1,500 Folders, to needing 50k points on your account.

Update 5th December 2010:
Postbits will now be updated weekly. This will occur every Thursday.
