Scientist Chat Details
This is the post you'll want to bookmark and share with your fellow community members who may breeze past the news section in a rush to get folding!
The Date: 16 October 2014 (Thursday)
The location: #veteran, IRC (Get help with chat here.)
The Time: 1300-1400 (or so, but the official chat ends after an hour) Pacific
The Time Zone Converter: Right this way!
The Topics: Determined by you. Add your questions to this thread! As we're looping in our Foldit scientists specifically for this chat, they want to know what's on your mind. Looking for inspiration? Follow-up on previous topics? Read our previous chats.
Speaking of chat and veteran status - we've looked at how it was awarded, and made a few adjustments to ensure once you have it, that it shouldn't disappear! (This was a thing that affected some of our users.)(Thu, 10/02/2014 - 15:54 | 13 comments)
Community News, Fall Edition
The last fourth of the year has arrived, and with it, there's some community news to share.
First, in October, we're having a Science Chat! This is your opportunity to chat with Foldit scientists about puzzles and general science. Mark down October 16 - you won't want to miss it. Details coming later this week!
Second, we have a Developer Chat on the books for December. Date to be announced. It will be early December so you can enjoy the later winter holidays!
Third, we really want to bring back Black Belt Folding. This video series was highly popular and great to learn from, but we can't add to it without everyone's help. Once you take a look at the playlist, feel free to share your thoughts on what we could do videos on - but most importantly if you can also help!(Wed, 10/01/2014 - 16:31 | 0 comments)
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.
- 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!(Mon, 09/29/2014 - 23:42 | 7 comments)
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.(Mon, 09/29/2014 - 18:19 | 14 comments)
