Please read the following carefully to make sure you understand the prize selection process.  Unfortunately, in the past people have missed out on prizes due to not reading/following the instructions.  If anything is unclear, or I left something out, or if you have any questions please ask!
 
2/20/21
  • We've had some incredibly generous prizes donated thus far by our folding community - a BIG thanks to everyone that has donated!
  • Tuesday 2/23 will be the last day to donate a prize, if you are intending to do so
  • The prize selection process will begin Wednesday 2/24
  • The prize drawing is tentatively schedule for Monday 3/1
 
2/17/21
  • The contest is underway and the site has been updated. I've still got a few more things to add, but the majority should be in place.
  • All eligible entrants have been placed on a team and teams are balanced based on reported PPD to within 0.12% of each one another. 
  • If there are any issues, improvements, additional stats you'd like to see please let me know.
  • Our generous community is putting together an incredible pool of prizes!   Be sure to check the prize eligibility section to make sure you're included in the drawing.
  • More info on the prize drawing process will be posted next week!
 
2/15/21
  • Looks like all but 2 people have begun folding for the contest!  If they have started folding by the end of the qualification round they will not be placed on a team so as not to put a team at an unfair disadvantage
  • There are also a few people with some whacky PPD estimates and I have reached out to them via PM to make a valid estimate of their daily folding points output.  If they don't provide an updated estimate they cannot be included in the contest:
    • berno123
    • Jeff_Arredondo
    • Thernen
    • skydog71
  • The competitiveness of the contest relies on the accuracy of your estimated PPD.  If anyone wants to update their production estimate please let me know.
 
2/14/21
  • The  following people have 0 production as of now:
    • whitleyca
    • Thernen
    • RVAPack
    • papasmurf7676
    • menace33
    • jpndoc
    • DaBadger84
    • hansostberg
    • HK-Steve
      Ender14
    • CHiLL72
    • bill1024
    • bernard17
    • Bain64
    • badboy64
    • awalleyeguy
  • Anyone that has no production by the end of the qualifying period will not be placed onto a team for the contest
 
2/13/21
  • Welcome the Protein Prophets captained by AcesofDeath7 to the contest!
  • Xavier_Zepherious has also volunteered to captain the Crunching Tigers Folding Dragons if we have enough participants to field 5 teams (he graciously deferred to allow the Protein Prophets to enter).  When divvying up the teams, I hopefully will be able to include the CT/FD as a 5th team as long as we have enough members (I haven't checked the math on how it will work out, but I think we should be able to field 5 teams).
  • The qualification round kicks off tonight!  All participants must be folding during the qualification round to be placed onto a team!  If you are unable to fold for whatever reason please send me a PM.
 
2/9/21
  • Looks like we've got over 80 people signed up so far with an impressive 270 million PPD (give or take)! 
  • 4 more days to sign up before we get this started.
  • If captains have anyone they would like to nominate to be a co-captain for their team please let me know!
1/24/21
 
Over the past 4 weeks or so I've been putting together a folding event along the lines of contests that we used to have on these forums to thank EVGA for supporting our folding team celebrate the end of Folding Year 13.  Its been a while and we've got a lot of newcomers since then so while you get ready to fire up those rigs for a good cause I'll give you the rundown:
 
  • the contest site: https://sites.google.com/view/year13foldingcontest/
  • we'll divide participants into at least 4 teams (possibly more based on interest) and fold against each other while engaging in a bit of good-natured fun and trash-talking
  • current teams
    • F@Holding Pimps captained by drougnor
    • EVGA DC Strike Force captained by bill1024
    • Unforgiving Folders captained by un4givn85
  • we need at least one more team: if you're interested in captaining a team please let me know in this thread or via PM!
     
     
  • sign up for the contest here: https://sites.google.com/view/year13foldingcontest/sign-up
  • the registration period ends Feb 12 - be sure to sign up asap!
  • please provide an accurate estimate of your folding points per day.  This is necessary to insure a fair and fun contest! 
     
  • the contest qualification round requires you to fold from 12:01 AM Central Time (GMT -6:00) on Sunday February 14th, 2021 to 11:59 PM Central Time (GMT -6:00) on Tuesday February 16, 2021 in order to qualify for the contest.

    I'm digging it, THANK YOU troy, Drougnor [<<stat PIMP deluxe] and Captains for stepping up!   Folders may enjoy this alternative to the TZC. 
     
    @Tank, it sucks the timing won't work out. I hope your move goes smooth. "It's a dry heat" I am told.

    The Pimpmobile has been dusted off and fueled up on the finest high octane Pimp-Juice, the cane polished and my finest faux furs hung out to air.  The 7 inch platform boots are being polished by a team of specialists and the finest selection of Bootsy Collins and P-Funk is being assembled for the soundtrack.

    Will we see a return of PimpZilla? Who knows? You'll have to join the contest find the funk out!

    Signed up.  Estimated slightly less than what I achieved during the TZC due to anticipated gaming time.  I was focused on rebuilding my Bethesda modlists during the last one resulting a much less folding down time than I thought going in.

    My Skyrim game is still borked. Have to work on it soon. Finally snagged a 3090 in time for the contest. Added a prize to the list.

    Yeah, mine too.  Troubleshooting a CTD in a specific location, and the required adulting activities of life prevent me from buckling down for long sessions to address it.  Need to sort it out and then I should be good to go.

    Singed up.




    Just a sec, I need to get the fine glassware safely packed away!
