A Reminder of the Community Rules

Hello all! Hope you are enjoying this fine Tuesday. I wanted to take a brief moment to remind everyone about the Foldit Community Rules. As part of the community, everyone is expected to adhere to these rules at all times, so it is important all are aware of what is expected. Here are the highlights:

  • Keep the conversation PG-rated, since there is a wide range of ages in the community. Anything deemed offensive or obscene will not be tolerated.

New Devprev Puzzle!

We've posted a new [DEVPREV] RNA puzzle for players to try out Foldit with nucleic acids. Foldit tools that previously caused crashes with RNA have been either fixed or disabled, and we introduced several changes to improve the Shake tool. We'd appreciate if devprev players could try out this puzzle, and let us know if you encounter any issues!
