I've got two brand new external Creative Sound Blaster cards sitting on my shelf. Any body have any ideas on folding prizes? I'm thinking a 'sign up and fold 100 WU's' and get a free Sound card.. Sound kinda like getting a ipod w/ a bank.

Ideas?

xamit,
That is a very generous offer my friend and would definitely help our recruiting efforts. Perhaps if you set a time frame for example anyone who signs up to fold on our team between June 15th through July 15th, first 2 to reach 100 wu's will win a sound card. Just an idea, maybe you or somebody else can feed off of that. Of course you would have to add disclaimers that this is in no way attached to the AMD Forums and that it is a personal incentive. This is the team spirit we need my friend. GO TEAM!

How long's it taking to do a frame?
It's not so much how many frames,but how big the download is.Have a look at the logfile and divide the bytes by 1024 then 1024 to get mb's.

I just got a new unit to work on and it's 17.88mb.

I don't know how many points it's worth because it's not on the WU Summary.It's a p1477.

Edit;BTW Xamlit,I like the idea.Just a pity I started a week and a half ago.I know I'm in UK but you could have sent it to a mate in Texas.

Lol... Nah.. Its like those TV promo's this dosen't apply to current suscribers.

Hopefully people will follow my example and offer other prizes etc. Although I wish that everyone was just motivated to fold instead of having their eye on a prize.

I don't think everyone gets it. xamit is trying to recruit new members, not give prizes away to existing members. We already know what folding is all about, we shouldn't need incentive.
Cheers,
Bob

Wowzers... No one is jumpin for a brand new external creative sound card.. Tsk tsk tsk... Here's the deal.. I am going to give them away to people who have already asked me if no one PM's me and says they want to accept the challenge. Personally I have no need for them as they are sitting in a closet collecting dust. I just thought it would have been a good incentive for attracting new folders..

So to recap PM if you want to accept the challenge and I will post a list of people who are currently in the race to complete 100 WU's first. This offer is for first timers only.
