----> SIGN UP HERE <----

Notice: You are now required to sign up each month, be sure to sign up for this month's event and each event going forward


What is the Foldathon?

Every month we hold a Foldathon, or FAT for short. The FAT is a mad dash over a 2 day period where we fold on as much hardware as we can get our grubby fingers on and try to amass the most points possible. It is winner takes all. Okay, that's not true, but if you're lucky you might win something, probably not, but you will have made a honorable contribution to the science behind [email protected] What is that science you're probably asking, have a gander over here to learn more. All units crunched for team 37726 count, even if you can only manage to complete one unit, but if you're already a folder, there's no excuse for not folding for the full 48 hours



How it works:

Sign-up and run [email protected] for Overclock.net (team number: 37726) during the specified times. Those who Fold will be entered into a drawing to win the prizes listed below. If you still don't know what [email protected] is or need some help getting started, feel free to post here, make a thread in the Overclock.net [email protected] Team forum or check this guide: FAHControl v7 for both CPU and GPU

----> SIGN UP HERE <----

You can verify whether or not you're signed up by looking for your name here in the member list.


If you don't submit any points during a Foldathon, you will be removed from the list, this is to push for active participation in the event.

You are required to re-sign up each month for the prize option, this is to hopefully push a little more active participation in the event as well and prevent prizes going to people who aren't active in the community.


When:

September 2020 Foldathon - Monday 21st - Wednesday 23rd - 1200 ET/1600 UTC


----> Countdown to Start <----​


Reminders:

If you would like to be put on a reminder list for all future Foldathons, please join this group: Foldathon Participants

If you would like to be notified via Private Message, please send a private message @Simmons572 or @CptAsian to be added to the notification group.


Prize Winners:

  • x5 OCN Premium Accounts - 1 Year Subscription
  • x3 $25 Paypal Prize
  • x1 $50 Paypal Prize

If you wish to donate a prize, shoot @lanofsong ,@Simmons572 or @axipher a PM

Prizes will be drawn on or around the following Monday after the event.

After accepting a prize in any given monthly folding event, members will sit out two events before becoming eligible for prizes again. This is to hopefully spread the kindly donated items amongst the OCN folding community more fairly.

Yeah, I mentioned in the 24/7 folding thread that the new format seems to prevent me from sending out the announcement PM to everyone so it will take some getting used to for all of us.

Signing up. Hopefully I'll be able to participate, our Eskom power is not exactly reliable (power cuts that mimic loadshedding even when they're "not loadshedding").

My internet has been down a couple of times recently. Hopefully it's finally fixed now.

It'll take some time before everything works like it should.
Everything new feels weird though, so I kinda agree with you guys. Not a big fan just yet, but it'll get better :)

Layout was never my favourite, other sites for my different hobbies happen to use this engine for their own sites as well. It does the job well enough but hey I am still a fan of the classic OCN from years ago.

Wow this was my first time logging in since the change, I'm glad I went looking for this thread. My lady isn't impressed with how much power folding uses, but she's grudgingly allowing me to continue.

ayyy NYT, nice to see you around.

Unrelated, cleaned up the OP a bit since spacing didn't carry over very well.

Should be interesting if a few RTX 3080’s/3090’s show up! I hope to have a 3080 running if I get it in time. 🤞

In! Hopefully I can figure this new forum and track subscriptions, or I will forget for sure...
Yeah we're working on mass notifications systems so it's easier to let everyone know when the thread goes up in the first place. Subscriptions are pretty much the same, just called "Following" now. To look at your list of followed threads, click on your profile pic up in the top right, then hit "Following". Will take you to a list of followed threads with ones that have new replies in bold. Click on the thread title to jump to the oldest unread post.
