Absolute Best / Credit Best (We need your feedback)

We are discussing making absolute best be functionally equivalent to credit best, and removing credit best.
It seems to me that on puzzles where they are functionally different, absolute best usually ends up being worthless anyways.
Can anyone provide an argument for why you would want to use absolute best instead of credit best?
Developer Preview Release Soon
We're about to release the following changes to the developer preview:
- The "Enable Backbone Constraints" checkbox in the behavior tab has been renamed to "Enable Cut Bands". This checkbox now should modify only the behavior of the cut bands, and NOT the rest of the backbone. This should fix *some* of the issues with wiggle.
- A new tool has been added - Idealize. Idealize works on a segment of backbone and sets the inter-residue bonds to their 'ideal' angles.
The Worcester Polytechnic Institute needs your help with an unsolved protein!

The new "Upload for Scientists" button
We are very excited about the new "Upload for Scientists" button that has been added to Foldit!
We currently have 3 design puzzles up where we look forward to receiving your favorite designs. Each player may upload 3 solutions per puzzle.
Two of the current design puzzles have starting structures that were initially taken from previous Foldit player solutions. We hope the new "Upload for Scientists" button will lead to many more of these.
