TechpowerUp's 10th Birthday WCG Challenge- join us May 14th (0:00 UTC) thru May 23rd, 2014 (24:00 UTC) to crunch/fold and win some cool stuff!!! (less than 72 hrs to go- there's still time to join up and lend a hand)


Welcome to TechpowerUp's 10th Birthday WCG Challenge

On May 14th 2004 @W1zzard became user # 01 and started the greatest website and forum EVER!!! :rockout:
How do our TPU crunchers and folders say Happy Birthday to TechpowerUp?


We have a Challenge!!! :D

Link to official Challenge:
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=6628

We have opened this Challenge to show our continued support for this great site and the important work done by the World Community Grid and Folding@Home.
The plan:

Have some friendly competition between WCG Teams as well as within our TPU Teams and hopefully get a few of our fellow TPU'ers to join in.
Fellow TPU members and WCG crunchers are invited to join our Team to heat up some silicon for a good cause, hang out, have a little fun, and even get a chance to win some great prizes.


How to join:
* note- our Challenge is for WCG Team crunching. However, we work closely with the TPU folding Team and we will be sharing prizes with active TPU folders- If you have a Radeon 7750/GeForce 560 or better gpu and want to try folding then you are welcome to do that. ;)

For crunching....

Follow this link to register and join our Team:

http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/reg/viewRegister.do?teamID=S8TLJ6TFV1
Once you're registered you can follow the prompts and install software- it's all pretty straight forward

If you have any questions you can post them in this thread, our Team thread, or PM an existing Team member.

How Random Winners Will be Drawn (see below):
To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.
My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.
If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.
Note(s):
- If for some reason you cannot participate at the start of the Challenge you may still qualify for the prizes, PM me to discuss your situation and we'll make those decisions on an individual basis ;)

I have a Pentium G850 PC at work I can add if its worth it, also my phone LG-G2 and a kindle Fire HD. If I can crunch on any of them I will set them up.

I just threw the game list into post #3 in this thread, so it'll be right under Norton's post #2 that will show all the main prizes.

I added in @adulaamin's donation, which I had forgotten yesterday: Splinter Cell Blacklist! :respect:
