Texinga here from the EVGA Team. I just wanted to say to you guys that you are "awesome" and a true inspiration to what Folding is all about. There's too much drama at times over the "points" rather than the objective of what we do as a world team every day in Folding. I don't have all the answers either, but just had to drop by to say what an inspiration you guys are to me in how you view CC. We have lots of Team members who also just want to be a part of CC and lay down a mega result for FAH. Our CC Captain "Xavier" has really been trying to arrive at a fair solution to the contest stuff. Knowing him and what I see of your Team, it sure seems that at least we could agree to something that is fair and more importantly allows all of us to participate with joy and great effort to solve these diseases.

We have time. A straight race point would be interesting only to two or three teams {EVGA, [H]ardOCP (but they won't race this year), and OC.NET}.


OK, what is the objection to a two bracket race (with a straight, and a handicap bracket)? With the points basis taken from the last CC, it's simple, imminently fair, and elegant.

Since captains aren't talking over there, and we are talking about it over here, let's get a proposal that seems good and put it up to the captains.

How would you guys feel about a one team, one goal that is hard to reach?

That way, we all try very hard together to reach a points total, and we all get the Jaded Monkey if we reach it. If not, we get the paw?

This was brought up before but I thought I would throw it out there again.

I say we set the goal of discovering the primary mechanism behind alzheimer's and a drug that can stop the disease. Then if we reach our goal we all get to keep our memories. If not some of us slowly go insane.

That is the TRUE goal of all this. A proper CC will get more folders involved, and we all get there faster.

That would turn an exciting race, into an event - an event that few will care anything about, let alone want to join in. It's the competitive aspect that makes the race fun, and this would remove 99.9% of it.

I couldn't get people from Overclockers.com to join it.

The competitiveness might be sucked out of it, yes agreed.
