There is much debate right now about the top folder awards, how many, what are they calculated on, why have them at all, etc.
I would also like to add into the pot the other current recognitions - the folding hack and individual (folding) signatures.
I would like there to be recognition of effort on more than 1 dimension or even 2 or 3.
As I it see it, currently they are top folder award (monthly), total points (hack blue and golds) and position in team (we are a team after all).
I would like to see more interesting useful and amusing awards that are easier to pick up.
With that that in mind is it feasible and possible with our collective skills and resources for us to build something like the signature block some of us use but with many more categories?
Then we as individuals and members of our folding team can choose to show what is important to us. We can compare our Apples and Oranges and passionately discuss the merits of those
I see categories (repeating some of the current ones):
First recorded entry date
Last recorded entry date
Total Work Units
Current Update, Day, Week and Month Points
Current Update, Day, Week and Month Work Units
Best Update, Day, Week and Month Points
Best Update, Day, Week and Month Work Units
Average Update, Day, Week and Month Points
Average Update, Day, Week and Month Work Units
% of team or overall for most of above
Fastest Work Unit
Slowest Work Unit
Highest Points per Work Unit
Lowest Points per Work Unit
I do not think we need to decide how or if they can be calculated, lets just see some interesting, useful and amusing stats (given the definition of stats to me is 'Lies, Lies and more Lies')
In that vein I would also like to see:
Average Points per Processor
Most up and down (inconsistent)
Team Work Unit ranking
Team Points ranking
Team Average points ranking
Most Liked - you can't vote for yourself
Most Feared - you can vote for yourself LOL
You guys have got to be more creative than me
Who knows how the current signature some of us use is coded ? So we can work out the skills needed and resources required - I am willing to put my hand up for both in any way I can (used to program but not the best at web database driven stuff - but I'll help and try)
I hope everyone can get passionate and contribute to the discussion, please remember this is for a little gaming competition, fun, can be emotional but it is fundamentally some lace and icing on our devfolding contribution to research.
