Foldit Downtime Reminder
Good news (sort of)! Downtime is September 3! From 0800-1100 Pacific the Foldit servers will be down for maintenance, and while we're estimating 3 hours, we might be back sooner than that. The website will also be down.
How will you get your news? Well, I personally recommend our Twitter account for the speediest form of musing (it's also mildly entertaining when there is no downtime), or possibly our Facebook page for those of you that like that sort of thing.
Please take note and plan accordingly so you don't lose progress! Thanks for understanding!(Tue, 09/02/2014 - 18:08 | 0 comments)
Foldit Puzzle Survey Launched
Hi there! We are currently curious about a variety of topics related to Puzzles for Foldit players and getting feedback on CASP11. All replies are anonymous, so feel free to share your thoughts with us.
Right now we're looking at a number of options to address concerns raised about puzzle volume (regular puzzles, not beginner puzzles) and we do want to collect as much information from our community as possible. Please share this link with all the Foldit players you know!
Note: The survey will close on Friday, September 12 at 0900 Pacific time. (Convert to your timezone)(Thu, 08/28/2014 - 20:19 | 7 comments)
New anti-Ebola puzzle posted
Based on player feedback, we've posted another design puzzle to create a peptide inhibitor of the Ebola glycoprotein, this one with 30 amino acid residues. The puzzle is live now, and expires just before the scheduled server downtime on Sept. 3rd. Bonne chance!( Posted by v_mulligan 119 1230 | Wed, 08/27/2014 - 21:26 | 0 comments )
