I'm not interested in competition,would not make me fold more than before,and as bogmali said
Maybe we ought to remember the point of this competition, to bring in new members to the folding cause. I'll still fold regardless of the competition but it does bring some much needed / positive attention to what we do to the rest of the forum.
Zodac and the CC forums wants everyone to chime in on whether to keep the CC names or not
all the other teams have conducted internal votes
we need to know where your team stands on this
as for the formula(s) .finalized versions will be offered this week
it will be some form or Categorized Chimp challenge (CCC) format
if you need to find out about it peruse the EVGA forums
I don't want to change my folding name. That d@mn chimp name messes up the team standings the rest of the year. (Once upon a time, the chimp kept me out of the top 10). Also, don't want the hassle. I will keep folding regardless, might even fire up some of my big rigs, but don't want to change my name.
Why the CC:
For increased exposure for FAH,
a nice bump up in wu's folded, during the race.
This was posted in the CC captains forum on 4-23-12. So far, 4 teams have approved this structure. Are we interested?
Here is the format that is being proposed:
1) CC Names will be used again this year.
2) It will run for 10 days (open to debate).
3) Points system:
• There will be three categories - Points, Growth and Conversion:
Points are the # of millions each team produces (120,000,000 is 120 points).
Growth is based off of last year's CC production (essentially, the handicap system we used last year).
Conversion is the amount of points made by the team by their CC user (so monkey_bollocks points/OCAU points*100).
• Each category will be "normalised" as follows:
Team A - 120
Team B - 84
Team C - 47
Team D - 103
We take the range (max-min, which = 73). We then use this formula = (points*100/range).
So the scores become:
Team A - 164.4
Team B - 115.1
Team C - 64.4
Team D - 141.1
Finally, we subtract the lowest score (64.4) from all teams, to bring the points into a 0-100 range (0 for lowest team, 100 for highest team):
Team A = 100
Team B = 50.7
Team C = 0
Team D = 76.7
• We add up the totals for each category, and the team with the most points across all three categories wins.
I'm in Cap
Do we have an expected start date?
Count me in..
I'll check on the date, but i know it's starting later than May 5th.
I don't know if I have to state this, but I'm in with 3 GTX 460's.
I want it during the next ice storm!
Since they probably won't wait for the next little ice age I'll just have to sweat it out.
I'm in. Getting more of my older rigs running. Time to start recruiting!
good , time to route round for some hardwares <in
ie visit some family , fix their Pc for em
The start date for the CC is expected to be May 15th. Duration will be 10 days, as usual. Name changes are (unfortunately,imo), still required.
Great weekend to clean out the folders - it will be a warm CC.
Confirmation on the above, will be from your CC captain, along with other details.
If you want to use your passkey, and it's not been qualified with the team's race name, it will have to be qualified by:
1) folding 10 smp work units, after configuring the folding client, with that passkey and race name
2) and returning 80% or more of them, before they expire.
Only smp work units can be used to qualify a folding rig. Passkeys from last year, should still be qualified, but best to check it out soon.
Good luck in the race!
Does copy and paste still work?
I assume you're talking about the passkey? It should like it did last year
TPU's World Community Grid crunchers are awaiting information regarding this years CC. I for one will be devoting the two crunching rigs that I have to the folding team for this competition. I am quite sure that a bunch of the other crunchers will be doing the same.
We will keep you folks informed as the respective Captains are still finalizing the details to include the start date
I'm in. Just pm me the passkey and user name we have to use, so my 3 gtx 460 and i7 970 are put to good use!
I will also devote my crunchers to help.
I can bring my cruncher's to the party but am not sure what 5770's can output?
I can setup one of two ways (rigs are in my sig):
1) Crossfire both 5770's in the 790FX, dedicate it to folding, crunch with the other rig (790GX has onboard GPU I can use)
2) Keep rigs as they are and fold on both
I would prefer not to use the 6870 in my main rig unless they can fold very well (i.e. better than 2x5770's)
Note- also willing to fold on someone else's card in my rig in their name if that sounds feasible
I don't think GPU2 & GPU3 play nice so I will likely have my spare 8800gs sent out to someone during the CC if I can't find a rig to put it in.
Separate names with a comma.
