    Everyone must stop "Pm'ing" me to check the status of their points progress:laugh:. You can check several stats pages for 60 day history to see where you were at the beginning of the contest. Shame on those who did record their stats when the contest started;). One way or another we will figure it out.

    You know, I don't think I've seen anywhere else where contest entrants offer help to other contest entrants in meeting the requirement for their entry. Normally everyone would be hoarding their hardware to ensure they alone get a prize entry.

    Not a bad thing to see at all.

    I have loaned some of my CPU power to a few people to help them make it and my folding power to 1 person but its all back in my name. If anyone else needs alittle help PM me with what you want me to run for you(please pick only what would be needed to push you to the points needed.In other words don't pick the highest powered chip for you unless you need it save it for someone else in need of more power)
    the rigs i have crunching and folding can be found in my sig and specs. so if you need help with crunching or folding PM me

    all that matters is THAT we fold, not who exactly folds and especially not in who's name we are folding so why not encouraging some people to reach a certain goal and thus motivating them to fold more at all? the contest then is just gambling - the winner is selected when buck nasty is flipping his golden coin... ;)

    Guys,

    For those already in the drawing, one of our members JrRacinFan needs help. He's about 8k shy. I got 12 threads crunching for him now. Anybody willing to help him out?

    Its very easy. PM him for his username/password, detach WCG from BOINC (select it in the projects list and hit detach), and re-attach WCG with his username/password :toast:

    If you still need help, PM me and I'll throw my quad on your account for a bit. It's having issues currently, but still gets ~85-90% of the points it should (about 1350/day)
