Most of us use and/or code recipes as they are powerful to solve puzzles. However, finding the best algorithm need many adjustments, just for the value of CI for instance, or even the algorithm by itself.
The variability of the puzzles doesn't permit to have an unbiased opinion of the efficiency of our new algorithms or settings. The size of the puzzles also slow down our recipes, and we sometimes have to wait a long time before the event of interest happens. Finally, as the aim of the game is to increase our points, it is difficult (or time consuming) to come back a the same starting point in order to compare the efficiency of each parameters we defined.
My suggestion :
Add a "recipe improvement interface".
It will permit to generate manually the protein we want (by writing the sequence) or to load already partially folded small proteins. It will also permit to create an other protein that we can "block", in order improve our protein-ligand recipes.
Points will only permit to compare the different algorithm we try, so here, no comparison between high scores.
What do you think about it? opinion? suggestion?
I know that it is a "big" suggestion, but Foldit has to give us everything we need to improve the solutions we submit.
