...and some helpful hints for the intro levels

And since chat is down as well, the intros teach the basic moves and tools.

Follow the tips really closely.

Dont overthink.

Dont be afraid to restart the level if your moves dont succeed.

A little more info

Chat within the game is broken, but there is a spare channel available through an IRC client like mibbit, mIRC or Chatzilla.

You can join it by typing in chatzilla:


Then 'IRC' tab and join channel '#global'.

Drop by and say hello, or ask for help and tips if necessary.
Also keep an eye on the wiki front page for updates and info as we get it. Go to the foldit page and click on 'wiki'.

guide is really not helpful

with the two structures overlapping it is really hard to see anything. Is there any way to turn it off? or move it to the side? Very frustrating.
