Survey Season has arrived!

Survey season has arrived for Foldit. You may recall last year we held two surveys, the first being our puzzle survey, and the second being a long overdue demographics survey. This year, they're back (so let's hope nothing crashes and we can have a larger dataset this year).

Foldit Puzzle Survey Fall 2015 - this survey will only be open until 8 September 2015.
Foldit Demographic Survey Fall 2015 - this survey will be open from 8 September - 8 October 2015. Be counted this year!

By performing these surveys during these specific windows, we can properly compare them to last year's results. Last year's puzzle survey was helpful to our team and gave us insight on puzzles, and hopefully also to you as well (especially with regards to concurrent puzzle volume). Your feedback from that survey has also allowed us to adjust questions to be clearer and narrow down ambiguity for this year's set of questions. There are some new questions we would like your thoughts on this year, so please be sure to fill it out, even if you filled out last year's. Remember - we only use our powers for good here, and all surveys are totally optional.

1130? More like 1130b!

This puzzle replaces Puzzle 1130 which was originally posted with the incorrect sequence. Thank you to our sharp eyed community for the reports!

New Release! (devprev and main, required to see new puzzles!)

Hey everyone,

We've just pushed an update to both devprev and main. This release contains backend changes to allow for features like drug design in future puzzles. It also contains some fixes for previously unused features. Because of this, you'll need to update your client to play new puzzles. Your old client will still work with any of the current puzzles.
