The Bleeping Computer Folding@home Team has been doing remarkably well lately,due to the efforts and dedication of our original and new members.

As a Team we feel that by increasing awareness to F@h we can involve more of BC's 100,000+ members in this worthy project. These diseases affect us all in one way or another.

The two video links, http://www.hel-razor.com/FoldingForOurFuture.html
and http://www.teamshort-media.com/videos/foldflash2.html
Would make anyone take a second look at lending a helping hand.

Do you think we could have a link to the pinned topic on the Home Page? Or something in the "New User" Information?

One thing that would be really great is a Tutorial about Folding@home.

Also thinking about having a Logo/Avatar in our sig to indicate that we are members of the F@h Team. Most Forums practice this.

What do you think?
Like the title says,we're open to ideas and suggestions,there has got to be way to get other BC members onto the F@h Team.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

In another forum I hang around they have a little "thingy "under their avatar as a sign they are member of the F@ H team. Secondly there are members actively approaching new members to join the Folding team. As I mentioned in my last post in the F@H thread why not make new members aware of this great cause mentioning it in the welcome at BC post as a start

ha ha ha :thumbsup: i dont even really know what it is or stands for? is there a thing about it pinned at the top of the general chat forum? if that is a thing about it, it doesnt look like it...whatever "it" is? sounds like some sort of virus helper so i shall definately follow links and check it out now. Incidently, for some reason...its titles conjured up a kind of advert for ho,me build your own computer desk kit...i must add that thiss might be because i am...a bit rare? or maybe there are many novices who are as clueless on this matter as me. I shall sort this out right away and follow links :flowers:


PS. with ref to "build your own computer desk line"....folding at home...i mean what other sort of sence could you make out of a random sentence like that? he he or is it cyber slang?...i duno.
