All of us at the Foldit team wish you crack protein-folders a very happy holiday season! We will be posting puzzles during the holidays, but we also wish you a restful and joyful holiday.
We've reposted the most recent update with several exciting new features! Here are some to look for:
- Achievements: You can now unlock achievements for completing certain tasks in the game. They will show up on your user page. These currently include completing puzzle levels, making a certain number of moves, sharing solutions, and related actions. We're planning on adding more in the future!
- Puzzle levels: The puzzle levels have been redone and reorganized.
- Hotkeys: Some of the hotkeys have changed.
- Fixes: This should fix the recent problem with saving and loading.
Puzzle durations extended; update rolled back
In view of the problems some of you have experienced with the new update (which has since been rolled back), I will keep the current puzzles open until Friday. If we should need to keep them open longer, I will let you know on Friday.
We have been having some hardware glitches recently, and during one of these a table containing score data was corrupted. As I was cleaning the data, I lost all our old user and group scores.
The good news is that I have full backups, so not a minutes' worth of scores have actually been lost. The bad news is that it will probably be a day or two before the scores reappear on the site. So just stay tuned and don't jump at the feedback reflexively, I will probably have quite a lot of duplicate feedback issues related to this issue anyway...
