New Release!

Hey everyone,

We've just released the devprev client from before the database failure, and pushed this client to the main update group. In addition to the following fixes and features, you will need this updated client to play puzzle 988b.

* General
- Saves from previous puzzles will be marked as such.
- Fragment filter can now be disabled by 'disable slow filters'.
- Added a separate option for controlling rank popups.

* Bug Fixes
- The connection light should more reliably reflect the state of the client's connection to the server.
- Wiggle power selector should be more visible with a black background.

A big thanks to our players who helped test this in devprev prior to the crash!

A Candle for Auntdeen

We learned some sad news late last week that beloved long-time player auntdeen passed away. Our thoughts are with her family during this difficult time. We are all grateful for the hard work she put in through the years as one of our ops, the creator of the Foldit Store and the Black Belt Folding videos.

Demographic Survey 2014: The Return!

Hey folders!

Did you fill out our survey before the downtime? If not, go ahead and fill it out! If so, please go fill it out again, because we lost every single scrap of data associated with it.

A bit of bright news came out of this - we were able to adapt some of our feedback into this new and improved version, and appreciate our community for being swift with improvement suggestions!

We're back!

Hello folders!

Welcome back from the downtime, in which Foldit’s database attempted to pretend most of September did not happen. We know better and we know how hard and inconvenient it has been! Please read the entire blog post about this downtime and report your issues in the thread!

The issue:
A database backup failed resulting in a loss of three weeks worth of data. This was discovered during our Wednesday maintenance.

Thanks, and we apologize for the trouble!
