quoted from node/989794

The reason the Advanced GUI is not the default is that Foldit is scary enough as it is for beginners, we don't want to overwhelm them with every new tool (especially since most of them do not have intro levels describing them).

We can mention in future news posts about updates with new features that you need the Advanced GUI, is there another better place we should state this?


May I suggest that the information could be posted on the wiki - there is very little for new people. Reading strategy, whist important, is not a lot of help with the ever expanding toolsets and puzzle types.


Is where I would look first as there is no dedicated page for newbies. A page just for tools may be useful as well.

Would this GETTING STARTED GUIDE be good to add to that FAQ?
