Folding Month VI Awards Ceremony

GOTSpectrum

1,830 views

It is a great day, the day where you all find out where in the ranks you found yourself at the end of the event. I know there are a lot of new people in the team so I thought I would take a minute to explain the delay. Usually, after Folding Month ends I take a few days to look after myself. I'm a disabled guy with several chronic illnesses and although I love hosting Folding Month every year it does take it out of me, so having a few days to rest before I need to start handing out prizes is something I often do. 

 

I think it's fair to say that this is the first event with Den-Fi that we can clearly say he has been surpassed on a large scale. On the one hand, I'm really happy to see the team doing so well, but on the other hand, it is a little sad that he is fading in common knowledge of the event. I suppose it is only natural when someone leaves the team that they would be slowly forgotten about. But I remember! 

 

I would like to thank those who helped with the event this year, we have the usual thanks to @leadeater who continues to maintain and manage the script that is vital for the smooth running of these events. @cbigfoot does a lot of the leg work, validating point totals, inputting them to the spreadsheet and generally doing all the small odd jobs that need to be done. We also have @IkeaGnome and @TylerD321 who helped out along with others, so a massive thank you to everyone who makes these events happen.

 

Please can you all make sure we donate a few dollars to Jason over at EOC, his servers must have taken a beating with all the traffic we have thrown at the guy over the last month or so. You can either use this PayPal link or find the PayPal donation button on the EOC Website on the left. Don't forget to include a note thanking him so he knows it's from team LTT.  My personal go-to is, 'From LTT with love' but you are free to write your own. 

 

In first place, we have @Mxyzptlk, who did not skip a beat at all during the event. He was one of those people I could not stop looking at throughout the event as he pushed forward harder and harder taking the team to new rights. Breaking every record set for a single participant for any folding event so far, he takes the rank of first and is crowned the king for the next year with an incredible 4,968,894,133 points. Folding through an equally incredible 8,457 Work Units over the 35 days of the event I think you can all agree with me when I say he certainly deserves the throne. 

 

In second place, we have @jakkuh_t, even with all the power of LMG behind him, he was unable to challenge for first place, which I'm happy about as it would be a little sad if he was the one to take the crown by the end of the event. He managed to be another person who broke the last events record and if it wasn't for Mixie he would certainly be the new record holder. He takes the rank of second with 4,198,415,473 points produced from a total of 5,309 Work Units. 

 

In Third place, we have @Shlouski, who managed to hold on and take third place after being displaced by the LMG participant for this event. He managed to come in second place last event and if it wasn't for Jake I'm sure he would have managed to take second in this event as well, but it was not on the cards with Jake doing what he does. He takes the rank with 4,036,060,417 points being produced from 6,058 Work Units. 

 

In fourth place, we have Justaphf, who for those of you who don't know is the number of man on the team overall. He managed to take fourth which just goes to show that consistency can get you very high in the project even if you don't have the most folding hardware. Fold for a long time, consistently day after day and you can gain some impressive ranks overall. He takes the rank with 3,728,232,321 points, meaning he is the last of the people to surpass the 3.7 billion point record from the last event. He managed to fold through 4,827 Work Units. 

 

In fifth place, we have miker07, who won the last folding month event so to see him fall off the podium is a little sad, but hey that's the way it goes. He actually produced fewer points than the last event too by about 100m so not too far behind but it is still an incredible feat. Taking the rank with 3,673,278,709 points produced from 4,919 Work Units. 

 

6th place is filled out by Alex Atkin UK, who only managed to take 10th during the last event, his wide-ranging upgrades to his folding hardware certainly helped him to take a better rank during this event. He takes the rank with 2,845,561,746 points through 3,987 Work Units. 

 

7th place is Gorgon, who funnily enough was also filling out 7th place during the last folding month event. He takes the rank with 2,452,071,785 points produced from 4,310 Work Units. 

 

8th place is _Rlocke who actually came in fifth place during the last event so technically he managed to do worse than his last showing. he takes the rank with 1,621,684,056 points produced from 2,883 Work Units. 

 

In 9th place, we have vsteel who was filling out the post of gatekeeper for a small while during the event but in the end, managed to take over his final rank with 1,288,657,478 points, these points were produced by folding 1,598 Work Units. 

 

Finally, we have 10th place, Baha managed to take over Firedfly by the time the final whistle blew and managed to secure a place in history. He took the rank with 1,148,598,346 points and folded through 1,521 Work Units throughout the event. 

 

Usually, we just go through the top ten for the final post but I want to mention three others who managed to pass the billion-point mark during this event. For the first time in the history of folding events, we have had not only the whole top ten break that barrier but 13 people. 

 

So in 11th, we have firedfly who managed to take his rank with 1,148,598,346 produced through 1,521 Work Units. 

 

in 12th place, we have ShampooTime who takes the rank with 1,142,848,757 points from 1,924 Work Units.

 

Finally, the last person to produce one billion points we have Favebook who takes the rank of 13th with 1,018,925,665 points from 1,876 Work Units.

Oh man @Struck got the unifi dream machine!!! I'm jealous

 

As a side note @GOTSpectrum please slide my steam game key to either @Heats with Nvidia or @Captainmarino as moderators should not be eligible for these prizes (at least, I personally dont want anyone thinking there was unfair advantage)

Happy to reroll it, although mods are allowed to get community prizes

"So in 11th, we have firedfly who spent a good chunk of the event not producing anything at all"  When you show up and drop 1,148,598,346 points on someone else's event I don't think you care what people say about your lack of productivity. 

 

But I'm more than happy to say something 😄

 

firedfly and myself came over to join the fold because it's something we enjoy doing. We both stopped to fold for our own regular monthly Foldathon over at ExtremeHW. He just never switched back to finish out this event. 

 

It was a neat change of pace to participate in a larger event and I'm really happy to see so many people donating resources and sweating it out for a month. You probably wont see either of us around much but we have folding competitions every month over at ExtremeHW if anyone wants to come hang out and fold a bit.

Thank you for joining in, PM me some details of your next event and I'll try and see if a few of us will return the favour!

Thank you to the Mods and Congrats all those that participated (and won prizes).  

 

(In hindsight, I might have made the 5 Billion mark.... But over Thanksgiving I was out of town for 5 days and turned off a few GPU's and backed down the power on a few others while I was gone .....🤷‍♂️)

 

I hope to see you all in the Summer Sprint and next years Folding 'Month'. Most importantly, try throwing a few WU's at F&H every so often. You KNOW i will!!!!

It would be interesting to run the numbers again in a couple of months to see how many continue to fold and what the production of those people is.

Wow this is amazing!. 
i really love this event.  Officially it is my 5th event. Unofficially it is my 6th.

I must admit i have thought about getting a UDM pro for years. But never bought one.

now i just need to buy some APs.

 

Thank you everyone for participation in the event. It was truly amazing. 
I already have bigger plans for next year.

 

However, i will be switching my forum name to match my folding name. I just did not want to do so in the middle of the event, as we saw what kind of trouble that created for the team collecting points.

I had a ton of fun doing this! Thank you to the team for putting it on and the work that goes into it, Im sorry @GOTSpectrum for ruining your blog post 2 days in a row, and for changing my user name halfway through. I was originally going to join the first event ( 6 years ago!) but couldn't due to moving, Then I lost my computer for the years in between(Long story). It's nice to have it back up and folding finally. Looking at a 4070ti to plug in let run while we rock the summer sprint! Thank you again for making this such a fun and involved event!
