The contests are nice and fun, but sure would be nice if folks joined and stayed afterwards. Our team is pretty supportive of each other and really adds to the community.

Those newcomers from contests do find this, and some do stay. Most won't, unfortunately.

I'm also a newcommer and I am still folding. Now if you see my folding has gone down lately, that's because my mysterious fan stopped folding for me, but I am in fact getting more PPD(by myself) since the contest ended because I started folding with my CPU too and it is much better than what I was led to believe (My CPU alone is better than my GPU alone, but together, my GPU is better).

I kind of want to come in here and poke a few buttons, post a few pics and ruffle a few feathers. However in doing so I'm afraid I'll unleash some sort of Cthulu-esque monster in the folding world that would come and rape my face. What's a guy to do?

I don't think his intention is to do some folding for us. I'm pretty sure he wants to point out that we've backed off a hell of a lot as a threat to his team, but he's afraid that he'll get the same response as the last time we were mentioned.... ;)

That said, I'm pretty sure I've got the testbed dialed in stable again so that'll add another 11K to our 24/7 average PPD. :)

edit: Also currently on the hunt to add an extra GPU to the MSI board on my testbed.......

Oh, I know that. I was pulling his leg...

On a side note, my 1.2kW psu has been found, and GPUs are on their way...

Odd that your PPD dropped just as mine picked back up, I guess.
