Ranks Currently Disabled

You've probably noticed recently that you're not getting assigned a rank in any of the competition puzzles. Ranking has been turned off for a little while while we work on some server optimizations, but it's our top priority to get that fixed. Note that your scores are still being reported and you'll be properly ranked soon enough.

Small Game Update

We have posted a small update tonight to address some user requests. Included are a lock/unlock all button, and the ability to resize the chat window. You should get the update automatically the next time you start the game.

Foldit Joins the International Protein Folding Competition

Foldit is joining the Team Baker Lab to compete in CASP, the international protein folding competition. This contest is usually won by complex computer programs running on large computer clusters. Let's show them that computers are no match for the collective human creativity of over 20,000 Foldit players!

In preparation, we posted some CASP warmup puzzles (Fibronectin, E. coli, Human Fyn 2, Transduction). CASP will be the first time you are folding proteins for which we truly do not know the folded shape. Be prepared; they're difficult.

Server Problems

The response to Foldit in the media and blogsphere has been beyond our wildest expectations and our servers have not been able to keep up. We apologize to all folders who have had trouble getting into the game or posting scores. Please bear with us as we upgrade to new hardware. We're working to ensure smooth experience for everyone as soon as possible. Thank you all for playing.
