We all are. But if a higher up on the servant ladder sees it it might just happen.

The way they've been posted is just a direct copy of how the EOC website lists team milestones. The other side of this coin is "hey member X just passed another milestone, awesome! Wonder if I can catch up to them.." Making a bit of fun or a game out of it (like I've done with Myth--a lighthearted "I'm catching up to you!!") , and helping out the overall effort at the same time.

BTW, over the past month the net difference in active users has been -1.

I think the way milestone postings are given out like confetti is silly. Posting every so-called milestone just diminishes the value of the higher ones. I think posting 10,000, 50,000, 100,000, 500,000 and 1,000,000 then every 500,000 thereafter is far more sensible.

Also, recently some people have decided to devote whole threads to individual folders for their superior efforts. We're meant to be a team and it would not surprise me if this practice alone has deterred and put-off people, because it's just wrong. Don't misunderstand, I'm not talking about individuals hitting large milestones i.e. 1,000,000, as I've said, I am in favour of this, but just because someone has a large powerhouse folding and is gaining more PPD than other members, it doesn't warrant unfair attention, it's like "my dick is bigger than your dick", it's just childish.

active users are not that bad. If they only fold on one machine and it takes them 7 days or more then they show up as inactive. once they post a new WU they show up as active again for like an another several days...take pete we all know hw is very active when it comes to folding but when he had ISP issues his status went to inactive and we dropped one. Its the new users we need to see jump from up from 0, although getting some of the long inactive ones to steady post would be nice

Hi all...

I think a "Shameless Plug" for F@H as a sticky in each and every forum would be a good thing. We have far too many inactive Folders on our team--especially those with no (or almost no) points.

I don't personally have the time, either, to PM every active poster, but I will vouch for it working. I am one of those people whom Dave1 contacted in that manner. I am over 200,000 points and have over 28GHz of power Folding for us and continue to add more (a Quad Core soon to come as well as a couple Dual Cores).

We need to find a way to both bring in new Folders and encourage the inactive ones to restart...If I can help, I will.

Thanks,
Jason

Having each of us monitor our own milestones is okay with me. That's pretty much the way things are at the moment due to a shortage of milestone monitor volunteers.

I would like to have the Avatars and Signatures fixed so that they do reflect the Folder's current point total. That is/was a feature I enjoyed.

When visiting other forums, I used my motherboards.org Avatar as my avatar on the other forum. This was positively commented upon by others in that forum. It was also my no-pressure way of advertising & recruiting potential candidates for F@H efforts.

If we have features, I suggest they are kept in working condition. If I had the technical expertise, I'd offer to fix the Avatars myself.

Sincerely,
MrCraigCraig

Fold well, so that others may prosper.
