    You could also find an image to use as a temporary avatar that could be edited to reflect our chimp challenge for those choosing to participate.

    FiendoPowerUp.

    I'm pretty much a bright red baboon ### so it essentially fits the naming convention.

    Serious though, I can't think of any right off the top of my head. The only thing I can say thus far is ChimPowerUp (less a p just to be different). I'll keep this working in my mind in case any lightning strikes and I hit gold.

    Great Idea and Buck took the lead on that already.

    On a side note, I don't want to create another poll thread to see which team name we are going to use for the challenge. You guys tell me which one is the best choice hands down;)

    I just looked at the OCN chimp challenge page and I'd say they are giving away everything but the :shadedshu OCN forum. They have a signup link with over 450 names on it.

    Another thing that I noticed looking at their EOC page is one or more of their members are folding on the username they selected for the chimp challenge. If that's legal:laugh: then I'd suggest we select a name ASAP and start getting our clients running.:)

    Here's a few ideas...
    ChimpForTPU
    ChimpsForTPU
    TPUsChimp
    TPUChimps

    Does anyone know how long this will run?? I have not looked this up... and will be away at the end of May, but if it is still running, then i will take measures to make sure that all is still going.

    Buck approves. No one can argue any further about anything folding related in this case. Except maybe Bogmali.

    LOL, I looked at a lot of Chimp pics lately on the net and that one is pretty good considering what's out there.

    I have a suggestion for the image. make the "P" half white and half red. For the simply people who don't get it.

    That was a joke avatar I made Buck. But ok, go ahead and use it :laugh:! Also, I removed the "troll face" in the other thread if you like it better, and actually have a more serious entry.

    Just want to say I'm super happy to see TPU participating in this. As one of the original Chimp Challenge founders, I never thought it would grow to include so many teams. If I didn't fold for team 32 this is definitely where my race points would go :)

    Alright folks since the team name has been approved, I will start folding with it to get the 10 A2 cores out the way for us bigadv folders. I will then post the credentials when I'm done folding the 10 cores.

    Did you mean that you've got a TechPowerUp! username [ChimPowerUP] approved that will compete in the Chimp Challenge?
