    W1zzard has been so generous as to supply us with these beautiful folding badges. This thread is here to help you apply them in user CP, so they may display in your posts.

    But first, you must meet the following requirements:

    1) You must be an active folder for team TechPowerUp!(team #50711) with a minimum 100K points.

    2) You must have several updates with points. If you stop folding for 7 days, the badge disappears.


    Ok, let's enter User CP and select Edit Options

    [​IMG]

    Scroll all the way down to Miscellaneous Options and enter your exact F@H username in the Folding Username field. Click Save Changes and you are done. Congrats on applying your Folding Badge!:toast:

    So I just realized that there needed to be underscores for spaces...:shadedshu
    Oh well. Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. Not sure how long it will take to get into effect.

    Nope. I'm thinking W1z hasn't changed it yet from 500k.

    Look at me, I'm a folder!

    And I didn't even use someone else's name :) Perhaps you should be able to see the F@H username on mouseover and make the thing a link to the users statistics page?

    Hey Cheese, It's off the sql server.. so i would try 'A Cheese Danish'.

    example. SELECT a.User_Name FROM wcgserver.dbo a WHERE a.User_Name = 'A Cheese Danish'

    Frick doesn't like anything. He reminds me of many of the grumpy old dwarves you read about in many fantasy novels. :rofl:” -Kreij

    You know Bta, I think a folding badge would look pretty at the bottom of all your posts. ;)

    I don't have 100K points, and I only fold in short bursts, when I feel the urge to. I'm so far behind any of you that I don't even feel like competing, even though we're all folding for a cause.

    The signature area is disabled for news posts. I'll think of a better way to advertise TPU Folding.

    True, but look at all the responses you make in the comment section of the news. It will be great publicity. Lots of exposure to non-folders that will want the badge. I will throw your username on a GPU to get you there. A couple of points a week is all you need to maintain it(I could also take care of that if you are so inclined;)).

    @BUCK NASTY

    I think your badge should say something like, "Master Folder", "Godlike Folder", "Cannon Folder"...hehehe not Crazy Folder.. I think you're past that.. (Not in a mean way.. Please don't ban me.. :p). but a fitting title. :toast:

    No, but I like clean things! ^^

    Maybe this will attract more people to folding though, let's hope it will! :)
