Default Chimp Challenge 2011: We won the Jaded Monkey! Congrats to ALL CC folders!

Edit May 15:

Beavers_Gone_Bananas won the Jaded Monkey!


Now folks, we need to start planning for nest year!

I was a tough road and there was some stiff competition to the end, but we managed to pull it off.

Great job Canucks!!

Great job to all the teams, especially Evga and OCN, who put up some serious PPD!!!


Its been a long road, but the new rules have been finalized for the 2011 Chimp Challenge. This year, the big change will be the Chimp Challenge points system, where teams get rewarded for how many folders they can get folding under the CC username, (Beavers_Gone_Bananas), and new folders.

Here are the official rules as agreed to by the team captains. These are new rules, so we hope there are no glaring loopholes. No system is perfect, but this is the best method we could determine that would help promote folding.

Further explanations and details on how to sign up soon to come.

Please read post #2 of this thread for updates.


To get a passkey, please PM a moderator or chrisk, or LCB001!

If you are new to folding, check out this guide:
Folding@Home Windows and PS3 Starter's Guide: FAQ, Links to Guides

If you are still confused, post a new thread and lots of folks will help you out!

Quote:

1. Each team will fold for 10 days solid for the duration of the contest.

A "Chimp Points" system will be used to determine the placings as follows:
The total points of each parent team is taken from the months of October 2010 to February 2011.
One-tenth of a percent (0.1%) of the respective team's 5-month total will be the points required to earn one (1) Chimp Point.

The team with the most Chimp Points earned at the end of the 10 days will be declared the winner.

EVGA - 2,189,017,921 5-month total 2,189,018 = 1 Chimp Point

Overclock.net - 1,103,027,683 5-month total 1,103,028 = 1 Chimp Point

Overclockers.com - 687,521,160 5-month total 687,521 = 1 Chimp Point

Maximum PC Magazine - 598,691,922 5-month total 598,692 = 1 Chimp Point

TSC! Russia - 740,887,400 5-month total 740,887 = 1 Chimp Point

CustomPC & BitTech - 653,039,005 5-month total 653,039 = 1 Chimp Point

Overclockers Australia - 241,621,336 5-month total 241,621 = 1 Chimp Point

TechPowerUp! - 217,346,120 5-month total 217,346 = 1 Chimp Point

Hardware Canucks Forum - 301,917 = 1 Chimp Point


2. Start time for the contest is Thursday, May 5th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7).
The finish for the contest is Sunday, May 15th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7).

3. The victor gets to claim the lucky jaded monkey as the prize.
Tales have been told of untold wealth and fame that comes with this.
The victorious team is allowed to display in any honorary fashion the jaded monkey, the losing teams are forbidden to display it.
The losing teams are bestowed the dreaded monkey's paw, which is said to be cursed.
People have been known for have very bad luck with this paw!

4. Team captains are as follows:
OCF - Captain: David
MaxPC - Captain: Full_Taoer
OCAU - Captain: leroyxx
OCN - Captain: zodac
EVGA - Captain: Barbarossa17
CPC & bit-tech - Captain: coolamasta
Hardware Canucks - Captain: chriskwarren (chrisk)
TSC! Russia - Captain: Hil
Tech Power Up - Captain: BUCK NASTY

5. In the event of a close race, a Stanford daily_user_summary.txt file will be the official source for points information.

6. Only team captains are allowed to make changes to rules and will be looking out for any "foul play".

7. The official folding names are:
OCF - T32monkeys
MaxPC - maximum_monkey
OCAU - Monkey_Bollocks
OCN - OCNChimpin
EVGA - EVGApes
CPC & bit-tech - CustomBitChimps
Hardware Canuks - Beavers_Gone_Bananas
TSC! Russia - TSCh!mp
Tech Power Up - ChimPowerUp

8. Have fun and keep it positive

9. We should not do anything that hurts the folding project. This includes but is not limited to, priming WUs and installing clients on machines without proper permission.

Yes, the maple leaf smiley is a part of the official rules ;p

Please note that we have adjusted the handicap from NCIX's help in this challenge. We have made the following changes:



NCIX Avg PPD: 2,603, 931

Current Daily Decrease in PPD
05/06: 964 580
05/07: 1 031 001

Beavers_Gone_Bananas PPD During Challenge:
05/06 : 2 663 292
05/07 : 3 638 225

Percentage of NCIX contribution
05/06: 36%
05/07: 28%


Thus the new HWC handicap would become 301,917

Any issues with this please read the "announcement" thread and post there for questions.

Am I correct in the assumption that only points from the username Beavers_Gone_Bananas will count?

So this is the same idea as the time we helped NCIX, we all fold under one name?

Yes. The method of participation is the same as last year (we all fold for Beavers_Gone_Bananas).
