Mutate and Marburg

Prolific folder Susume has put up a great post discussing thoughts on Marburg and the mutate function. Do you agree? Have a different theory or more to add? Join in on the forums and add your thoughts.

Thanks, Susume!

Curious about our Marburg results?

We have a new blog post that appeared late last night! Shoutouts to Susume of Anthropic Dreams and LociOiling from the Beta Folders this time.


Update: We also have a new Marburg design puzzle for you to try. This time, we'd like you to design something even smaller -- a 25-residue inhibitory peptide!

Minor tweaks, Community Rules

This has been on my to-do list for a while, but nothing major. Here is the list of changes:
* Clarified an issue with warnings (as in we often provide one before taking action), to bring it more in line with actual practice.
* New wording to fix this statement, which now captures the essence better and now reads: "Allow the moderators to help keep the community a welcoming place for everyone."
* Added an escalation path for issues (and in case of issues with moderators), as it had been strangely missing to date.
* Removed the word "younger" from this statement and fixed a potential loophole: "Generally speaking, if you avoid being disruptive to other user's experiences, and if you are polite and helpful to the less experienced members, you are less likely to be removed from chat."

As always, I like to be up front with these changes even when it falls under "keeping the virtual house tidy", so you can check them out here.
