Hi,

my suggestion is to improve the passwort screen:
it should be memorized also like [X]'Remember Password' the selection [X]'Disable Network timeouts', because without that it's almost not possible to run foldit.
and to click onto it everytime at login is also not so user-friendly.

regards

Hi,

running online-game

when puzzle expires, actual reached competition rank is not taken instead an old value is used.
that means: loosing all ranks gained in between !!

At 2h & 1h and shortly before puzzle expires: Pls. show message (like new ranking) 'puzzle expires soon' and autosave highest competition rank before puzzle expires.

After puzzle expires there is no more access to server and Foldit looking up - Exiting Foldit with save is not possible anymore (using CrtlAltDel helps to close foldit) !!

Regards

I don't think I fully understand your first request. Is it only for the check box options on the login screen to be saved across restarts of foldit?

In regards to your second comment about the scores, it looks to be a duplicate of http://fold.it/portal/node/992812 If you think it's not, please post it in a separate feedback item and we will review it.

I am changing the priority of this item to reflect your original bug report of the checkbox status not being saved.

I'm assigning this to myself.

Modifying to original status of feature request: saving the state of the login screen check boxes

Thanks tamirh, I've been wanting the "Disable Network timeouts" checkbox to be remembered for quite a while!
