New Release!

Hey everyone,

We're pushing out an update that contains some experimental intro puzzle and UI changes.

There are a few outstanding issues still remaining in the feedbacks, and we will be releasing a follow-up update to address those soon.

As always, a big thanks to our devprev players for giving us feedback and helping test the release!

Last chance to be included as an author on the CASP11 paper

The editors of Nature have sent us their deadline for the CASP11 WeFold paper author list.

If you played one of the CASP11 puzzles and would like your full real name to be included in the group consortium author list for this paper, please follow the directions in the blogpost by Saturday June 2nd at 11:59pm GMT

WeFold paper on CASP11 has just been accepted!

The followup paper to the first WeFold experiment was just accepted this week in Nature's online open access journal that covers the natural sciences: Scientific Reports.

The paper is titled: "An analysis and evaluation of the WeFold collaborative for protein structure prediction and its pipelines in CASP11 and CASP12"
and just as with the first WeFold paper about CASP10, Foldit played a very large part in CASP11!

In order to publish these results, however, we must now abide by the new authorship policy that journals have now implemented requiring author names and affiliations for all authors. Previously, we had used "Foldit Players" (or Players, F.) to represent all of you.

Similar to Foldit's previous publication in Nature Communications, for this paper you will all be under the group consortium: "Foldit Players", and anyone who played a CASP11 puzzle has the option to list their complete real name (we cannot use Foldit usernames).

If you played one of the CASP11 puzzles and would like your full real name to be included in the group consortium list for this paper, please follow the directions below in the comments by Saturday June 2nd at 11:59pm GMT

We would like to emphasize that this is completely voluntary, as we will of course also have a statement in the acknowledgements thanking all Foldit players, just not by name.

Website Downtime

Hey everyone,

We're in the process of upgrading some of our server software, and we will need to take the site down to do so.

We're scheduling the downtime for 11 AM PST (6 PM GMT) on Wednesday, May 30th. Puzzles have been scheduled accordingly to avoid any issues.

Developer Preview Release Soon

Hey everyone,

We're about to push an update to the Developer Preview that reintroduces some of the experimental intro puzzle/UI changes from the last update. We have made a number of fixes based on your feedback from the previous test. Let us know what issues are still there!
