Hi Foldit dev,
Notwithstanding this feedback: http://fold.it/portal/node/995870
I would like to present some of the reasons to keep the "Less Precise Wiggle" (LPW for short):
A) Normal wiggle is too slow for casual players or players with less powerful computers who cannot play for any extended time. This limits these players to hand-folding and short recipes or a relatively few cycle of longer ones. With LPW, it is possible for them to enjoy foldit.
B) Some types of recipe do really well with LPW mainly because they are types that win points by trying MANY possible solutions (I think of GAB and Quake, for example). With normal wiggle, these recipes cannot achieve many cycles to try out different configurations but with LPW they can and make progress possible.
I know I use LPW in some occasion because it is more suited even if, I think, I'm a power user and can let a recipe run for long period of time.
Thanks for taking the time to consider.
