Foldit 2017 Demographic Survey OPEN NOW

Each year, we ask Foldit players to fill out a player demographics survey to better understand our community, for science talks, applying for and maintaining grants, as well as securing other funds to help us keep things running.

While completing the survey is, of course, optional, we would truly appreciate your participation (as we appreciate your participation in EVERYTHING you wonderful folks do here). If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to message me through the site directly and I will get back to you ASAP.

Please encourage your community members/teammates/rivalries to fill out this survey as well.

The survey will be open for two weeks, from November 17 - December 1, 2017 and can be found here.

Once the survey is closed and the results are analyzed, I will make a blog post with the aggregate data for you all to see. Please note, individual responses won't be shared with the community as a whole, as we strongly respect player privacy.

Thanks so much for your participation!

Fall Science Chat!

Science Chat November 1 in veteran chat

I’m thrilled to announce that the Fall Science Chat will be next week on Wednesday, November 1st at 10:00pm GMT (3:00pm, Pacific Time Zone). If you have questions for our developers/scientists it would be helpful to post them right here so the team can review them in advance. If we aren’t able to answer all your questions in the given time, we will attempt to get a blog post up soon with answers. Despite the fact that this chat will take place in #veteran, it will be accessible to all who want to join via the following link: http://chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23veteran&server=irc.fold.it. Looking forward to chatting with you all!
