We are giving you 5 starts for this puzzle. Resetting the puzzle will cycle through these 5 Zhang server predictions. They are also in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading as well as an extended chain. This version of the puzzle is designed for veteran Foldit players to help new players and is worth 0 global points.

but foldit goes under the heading 'game science'.

A game is a competition - any competition is usually settled by points of some sort. So if there are no points (or equivalent) then it no longer qualifies as a game - QED
