Welcome Back!

We're back! However, there were some hiccups in the system that left us knocked out for an additional half hour vs. the 5-10 minutes we thought might happen.

Sorry about that. Resume folding! Things should be well on the way to being back again until our next scheduled maintenance.

Thanks everyone!

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!

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)

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!

Downtime Moved and Puzzle Deadline Shifted

Good news (sort of)! We've moved that downtime ONE week to September 3 (also a Wednesday). From 0800-1100 Pacific the Foldit servers will be down for maintenance. The website will also be down. Please take note and plan accordingly so you don't lose progress! Thanks for understanding!

In other news, check out this cool article about Foldit in the Seattle Times. (And if you're new and just found us, hi!)

Also: The deadline for Puzzle 973 has moved from 1400, 8/27 to 2300, 8/30. Adjust accordingly!
