A Reminder of the Community Rules

Hello all! Hope you are enjoying this fine Tuesday. I wanted to take a brief moment to remind everyone about the Foldit Community Rules. As part of the community, everyone is expected to adhere to these rules at all times, so it is important all are aware of what is expected. Here are the highlights:

  • Keep the conversation PG-rated, since there is a wide range of ages in the community. Anything deemed offensive or obscene will not be tolerated.

Potential Security Breach

A community member has brought to our attention that they’d received an email claiming their Foldit account had been hacked. The email listed the person’s username and password. While we do not have any verified evidence internally to substantiate the incident, we would urge you to take a moment to reset your Foldit password and any other account that uses that password. If you have any issues with this, please reach out to us at mail.fold.it@gmail.com.

Removed points for Puzzle 1592

Due to serious performance issues for some players, we've removed points and categories from Puzzle 1592: Symmetric Dimer Design: Limited Interface. Players should not feel compelled to play this puzzle to remain competitive on the leaderboards.

However, if you are able to play this puzzle without issue, we will still analyze solutions after the puzzle closes!

Thanks to all the players who offered prompt feedback about the performance problems!

Due to some scoring problems, we've removed Puzzle 1590: Aflatoxin Challenge: Round 11 from the puzzle list. Unfortunately, we haven't yet found the source of the issue. We've moved the puzzle to devprev, in case any of our devprev users want to help us troubleshoot!
