I started playing Foldit less than a week ago. So I am a n00b and full of questions right now.
I have just finished the tutorial puzzles and now I am giving a go at one of the competition puzzles, the one called 151 (<15): Design Challenge. I managed a decent score and ranked up, and I can see my score and rank in the game; but I don't see my score, or even my name in the list of scores in the puzzle's web page. So my inmediate questions for the moment are:
- Do I have to do something special to participate in the competition and see my name/score on that list? Like, do I have to "submit" my protein in some way? Or, maybe that page get refreshed once a day, so I'll see my score eventually? I was playing about 10 hours ago.
- Is the expiry date and time for the puzzle shown in my local time, or in GMT?
Also, a suggestion, it would be good if the forum has a search feature. It is possible that someone else asked what I just asked, but I didn't know how to search the forum.
A last thing: what a great and very interesting game. Congratulations to all involved. I am now trying to attract some people.
Btw, I found about the game on the May issue of Wired Magazine.
