    Metallus97 reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Award Ceremony - Factual Correction   
    Well guys, 
     
    It seems that due to an error on my part with the datasheet we have managed to omit all who hit the minimum requirements who had less than 1 million points. So, here are the list of the guys who hit the requirements but were omitted due to a simple error in the IF statement. In order to make sure that you guys haven't missed out on any giveaways we are planning to use any unclaimed prizes to be raffled to you guys. I hope this makes things right, as always we will endeavour to ensure this is not repeated for future events. 
     
    The event badges have already been handed out to you guys, I will also be added you to the original award ceremony too to ensure you get the recognition required. 
     
     
    Happy Folding,

    Well guys, my oh my has it been a month of pure excitement and an unexpected plot twist, the king has been dethroned!!!
     
    But before we get into it I just want to say a few things, first and foremost, I want to thank the guys who have been helping behind the scenes, @Gorgon for his exceptional data handling and filling in for blog posts, @palespartan for being my rival giving a helping hand with data validation, prize allocation and a blog post or two and @Imbellis for validation and giving us a secondary source of point data. You guys really have been lifesavers this event and without you I honestly don't think the event would have ran at all as I would have needed to throw in the towel with all the hospital trips. 
     
    I want to thank every one of who participated, no matter if you made 3 points(yes, somehow that was a thing, I even validated it myself) or if you made over 800m *cough* @Yggdrasil128 *cough*, you really are all beautiful, amazing people. I also want to give a special thanks to you all for standing by me despite all the hospital trips and unavailability, I really appreciated all the warm messages I received wishing my partner good health, it will surly be needed over the coming months and possibly years. 
     
    Competition was stiff this year, with not only the highest number of sign ups for any folding event here on the forum but also some of the most impressive folding I've ever seen, period. You guys have rocked it hard and you should all be proud for what we accomplished. 17,933,433,473 points over the course of the event and moving from 10th place to 8th, but the science is not over and the folding must continue. 
     
    Roughly, if team LTT was measured on the top500 list of supercomputers we would have found ourselves somewhere around 70-75th, just think about that for a moment...
     
    Please can 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 right. Don't forget to include a note thanking him so he knows its from team LTT. 
     
    List of the dead
     
    It is a sad time when we see the demise of our hardware, even sadder when that hardware holding out a few more days or weeks would have secured up a better position.

    Rest In Piece Valiant hardware, there is a special place in silicon heaven(Red Dwarf Reference right there) for you, least we forget. 
     
    And now, without further delay, here are the final, verified ranks and prize winners. 
     
    In first place we have @Yggdrasil128, with 886,386,763 points over the course of the event. Mr. Drasil, now crowned the new king of folding for team LTT, really surprised us all, laying low for much of the event before making a dash to the top with his mercenary armies rented folding power, we don't mind how you get your points as long as you get them under your name. You truly deserve to sit in this spot, your prize os to have the bragging rights for the next 11 months, All Hail The King of Folding, 2019!
     
    In second place we have the dethroned kind, @Den-Fi with 660,756,810, you really pushed hard towards the end of the month, but with some sandbagging at the start it has to be asked if you could have taken the crown, that is something we will never know. But, hear this, there is no shame here, for we are all winners when it comes to folding, as we fold, FOR SCIENCE!
     
    In third place we have @Gorgon with 520,575,343 an impressive number, our very own Gorgon showing that we are all in it full tilt, even if we are consumed by crashing google sheets and failing giant IF statements. He was up there right from the start and really took the fight to the dethroned king, a real man of the people. 
     
    In 4th place we have @miker07 with 438,025,030, a fine effort from the folding month veteran. 
     
    in 5th place we have @catawalks with 415,533,572, if only he pushed that little more he could have taken 4th. 
     
    6. @_Rlocke with 221,628,810.
     
    7. @JB25304 with 212,774,860.
     
    8. @leadeater with 202,564,470.
     
    9. @Favebook with 191,299,492.
     
    10. @GOTSpectrum with 186,742,539.
     
     
    If you don't see your name on the list above you either did not sign up for this event or you did not meet the minimum requirements. All event badges will be handed out without any intervention needed from you guys, PLEASE DO NOT message me or the team about event badges. 
     
    Now it is time for the prizes!
     
    I was planning to tag each winner but due to the number of prizes and limitation I have recently been made aware of the winning ranks will be listed here and the winners will be tagged in comments to this post. This will ensure all winners get a notification for the tag. 
     
    The winners will have 7 working days from the publication of this post to claim the prize, if the prize goes unclaimed it will be raffled again. In order to claim the Prize you will need to PM me here on the forum, with the subject
     
    'I am here to claim what is rightfully mine!'

    I really just want to thank you all again for taking part in the event, you guys have really made it special, every single one of you!
     
    And, with that said, it's time to finally wrap up the folding month for 2019, I can't wait to see you all taking part in the future folding events like the intra-forum friendly in Febuary, the summer folding sprint and yes, next years folding month.
     
    EDIT: In all the excitement, I forgot to add my two little announcements... 
     
    The first is, the billion point badge is now here!
     
      1 billion points, Diamond Badge - 'When you have contributed more than 1 Billion points, Tales of your folding adventures will be whispered through the ages, You are now mythical.'
     
    The second is that, It has been decided that new leadership for the folding team could reinvigorate the team, well I can tell you that I have accepted to take over the leadership role from @Whiskers!
     
    This is Spectrum signing off,

    Well guys, it looks like the team is clawing back some lost production as we are seeing a slight bump today, that half billion day is still elusive to us though, but it will happen.
     
    In first place we see @Gorgon hanging on by the skin of his teeth with 164.66 million points, he looks like the king is poised to strike and take his lead over the next day or so, it will be interesting to see if he has anything to respond with or if he will need to concede to @Den-Fi who has ramped up production and has 164.35 million points to his name. In third place we see @miker07 with 139.84 million points, he must be finding himself looking at the rear-view mirror and wondering what, if anything he can do as there are a couple of people behind him looking to leapfrog his position. Forth place is taken by the challenger @Yggdrasil128 who is looking at the top dog, the king himself with envy in his eyes as he races towards dominance, currently holding onto 124.9 million points, he has some liming to go, but he does have the highest production of any participant for the time being. @catawalks takes fifth place with 96.9 million points, giving him a lead of over 15 million, placing him comfortably ahead of @_Rlocke  in sixth with 82.3 million points. 7th place is taken by @GOTSpectrum who continues to plod along consistently with 50 million points to his name, @DUW1G1T seems to be fairly consistent too with his 48.9 million points giving him a small but adequate lead over @Lucky7 in 9th place with 45.9 million points. @palespartan has been knocked out of 10th place and down to 12th as @Cbwgoose sits as the gate-keeper of the top 10 with 39.1 million points.
     
    The top 10 has pumped out 24.48% of the events total for today, with the top 50 bringing home 50.64% and the top 100 claiming 65.44%.
     
    as always:
     
    Please remember that this is a friendly event, but we are all folding away for Science, AND GLORY! 
     
    I'm really impressed with the numbers we are seeing here, Thank you to all who are involved and who make this worth while every year.
     
    Remember we are a team first and individuals second, so give thanks where thanks is due and hit that reaction button when someone helps you out.
     
    Be wary of the minimum participation requirements this year.
     
    minimum requirements: 100k points, 20 WUs, and 20 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.

    Metallus97 reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Day Ten - Production Slumps   
    Well guys, we have hit the double digits, and it seems the pressure is starting to hit our participants. The download bug is back and we can see some users folding under the heat.
     
    In first place we see @Gorgon holding on with 148.83 million points, many have asked hows hes managed to stay up with the king breathing down his neck, the answer is sandbagging unforeseen circumstances on the part of @Den-Fi who is in second with 146.98 million points, Its hard to gauge if he really is struggling, or just underachieving, either way, we are keeping a close eye on the king. In third place we have @miker07 with 128.73 million points, he continues to push hard, and the results show for themselves. Fourth place is taken by @Yggdrasil128 who is still showing that he has the stamina to challenge the top boys, if he can keep this up I'm sure we will see the top dog push harder. With 104.9 million he has some distance to cover, but I'm sure he will make it, WE BELIEVE IN YOU! Fifth place is held by @catawalks with 84.3 million points, respectable to say the least, @_Rlocke is keeping pace too with 74 milillion points, hes quite comfortable  as 7th place is held by @GOTSpectrum with 45 million points, @DUW1G1T continues to keep pace with 7th, holding onto the number 8 sopt with 44m points. @Lucky7 doesnt need any luck to keep his spot at 9th with 41.7m as @palespartan has the number 10 spot with 33.6 million.

    Well guys, here we are, the first day of the second week and my oh my have we been busy bees, that 500m day is still elusive but we are creepy ever closer.
     
    In first place we have @Gorgon with a massive 116.56 million points, he really has expanded his fleet since last folding month and finds himself in first, but that lead is slipping away as @Den-Fi is hot on his tail with 115.66 million, and seeing as the advancing royalists are outpacing the the rebel leader it's only a matter of time. Taking third place we have @miker07 who continues to play with the big boys holding onto the number three spot with 103.63 million points, in fourth we can see the teams biggest producer @Yggdrasil128 flying up the ranks at warp speed currently holding onto a ticket with 66.13 million points, fifth place is take by @catawalks with 64.2 million points, The cat man is slowing that he can do more than simply scratch a post. 6th place is taken by @_Rlocke with 57.8 million points, hes built himself up a mighty lead over @GOTSpectrum in 7th who has 36.1 million points to his name, 8th place we see @DUW1G1T continuing to push hard with 35.8 million points, hes so close to 7th he can taste the rainbow Mr spec is leaving behind.In 9th place we have @Lucky7 with 33 million points and he isnt feeling overly threatened by @palespartan in 10th who has 26.7 million points.
     
    The top 10 brought home 24.44% of the points for this update, the top 50 ranks can claim 48.46% while the top 100 has 63.23% this update.

    Metallus97 reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Day Two - So Early, So Impressive   
    In these early days we start to see the initial ranks coming out, much can, and will change over the next 33 days, but for now we can get a small idea of generally where many of us will find ourselves, will we be comfortably finding ourselves fighting for a respectable top 100, maybe even top 10, or are we in for the misery of finding ourselves fighting to stay afloat in the middle. These numbers are interesting if nothing else and may be an indicator of what is to come, but one is is sure, that nothing is sure right now. So... lets get on with it. 
     
    We see @miker07 topping the chart with an impressive 25.54 million points so far, he is looking like the man to beat, the one who may finally dethrone the king, in second we have our very own @Gorgon with a still very impressive 24.77 million points, he will be looking forward with wonder, can he tune his rigs and close the gap. Third place we have The King, @Den-Fi he seems to have hit a hurdle already with 21.96 million points to show for all his effort over the last couple days, but he will be looking forward, he will be questioning, how do I take back my throne. In forth place we find @catawalks, a new comer to folding month who seems to be wanting to make his name known by taking the number 4 spot with 14.09 million points. In fifth we have @_Rlocke a veteran of the month of folding and a well known heavy hitter, I'm sure he will have more in the tank to come having produced 9.71 million over the last couple days. 6th place sees @DUW1G1T whos been pushed out of the top 5 by mr Locke, with 9.07 million points he cant really feel very comfortable as 7th place is @GOTSpectrum who is only 8k points behind that mark. We see a fair gap open of about 2.5 million points  before 8th can be seen and who is it, its yet another new name @Lucky7. He must be really thanking lady luck for the comfortable position he seems to be in with another million points behind him we have @palespartan with 6.5 million points, as one of the events core team and the reason for this event even existing he must be asking himself why he cant do more.To round out the top 10 we have @Yabdat, another familiar name for us who took part in last years folding month, the gate keep finds himself with 6.2 million points.
     
    The top 10 have produced 20.75% of all points produced by folding month participants over the last 24 hours. 
     
    The top 50 make up 45.06% while the top 100 made 63% of todays total.
     
    as always anyone who hasnt produced any points so far this month wont show up on the table below.

    We have seen some movement over the last 24 hours or so and its been quite exciting, today we folding over 85 percent of LTTs total production! Also guys due to the sheer number of inactive names on out database, if you haven't registered your folding name with Stanford by the time the application form closes(November 6th, 23:00GMT) then you will be removed from the database and will no longer be able to participate. 
     
    And, the standings so far are as follows, The King is managed to hold onto his throne today with 17.3million, but looking a little further down the table Tomerrs has come out of no where to take the number two slot, it seems hes gunning to knock the king over and take his place, he may only have 10million points but over the last 24 hour he produced 7.6million. Then we have Ben Quigley with 9.4million at in third, there is definitely Some threads below him ready to strike. Dissitesuxba11s has managed to hold onto 4th despite all the movement around them. Followed by Porina with 3.1million, theres only 100k separating the two at the moment. Jakkuh is in 6th with 8million and it looks almost certain he will be pushing his way up the board just a little more. Gorgon and Palespartan have been knocked down to 7th and 8th, with 7.2 and 7million points there's only a little ground between them. After the number 8 spot there's some real lagging behind happening, Cereal is holding 9th with only 4.6million points, but TVwazhere isn't all that far out with 4.4milion of his own.
    After the top 10 another opening can he seen, 11th only has 3.8million putting the distance at 800k points. 12th and 13th are right up there too, with only 200k separating the three positions. Stijnman is at 3.5million, RollinLower is at 15th with 3.3million. RAS_3885 in 16th with 3.2million, Willhemmings follwing up with 3.16, number 18 and 19 is  Powelljl and millerpanda with 3million each. Then we have OpenCircuit74 in 20th holding on with only 2.7million points.
     
    There are some real threats to @King Poet on the table, and it will be interesting to see if he even has any more gas in the tank to push harder, Then we have @Tomerrs who blew away the competition and produced an incredible 7.6million points in the last 24 hours. @Ben Quigley has manged to hold onto third, but it seems this will be short lived looking at the table around him. In a surprise twist we have seen @porina drop in the rankings, and in sixth we have Jakkuh. Palespartan has yet again gained some ground in respect to Gorgon, But a little birdie tells me Gorgon has an ace up his sleeve. @James has dropped out of the top 20, and you have to ask, why is it Jakkuh was allowed to just come in and steal his light...
     
    If your numbers seem off, or you cant find yourself on the list then please do get in contact with me and I will double check on your data, we currently have 310 sign-ups but only 186 have produced any points so far for the event. 
     
    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.
     
    Once again, if you don't have a valid folding name with Stanford by the time entries close your records will be deleted in our database. 
     
    Thanks for participating in the event! 
     
    Happy folding,

    On the first day of the event we have seen four people take more than half of all the points for the event members. We have, rather expectly, King Poet in first place with just shy of 5 million points, with a sizeable gap to myself with 2.3 million.. Porina and Gorgon coming up in the next group both just a little over 1.8 million. Dissit and Palespartan are both hovering around the 1.5 million point mark for today. Givintvt, TVwazhere and stilnman are coming in at the 1 million point park. RollinLower seems to not have made his mind up in he wants to move further up into the top 10 sitting at a comfortable 950k. And that concludes top 10 watch! Thank you all for participating and thanks for reading, the shear number of you guys involved has really astounded me, to the point where I’ve completely had the change the way we track and comment on your results. But the real question is, who can take the heat? Can @King Poet keep on screaming ahead without dropping the protein. Can @Ben Quigley hold onto number two or will @porina come and smoke him out. @Gorgon is right up there and is poised to try to push into the top three but does he has the steam, er, silicon for such a maneuver. @palespartan is so close to getting into the top 5 if only he could push his rigs that little bit harder. But, there's only one way to find out, and that's to read on tomorrow!  Also guys, don’t forget we are keeping a close eye on Mr Laz0r @Jamesas he is the only LMG staff to join I guess we should give him so special attention, at 670K he hasn’t impressed so far. But he has the chance to really make a splash if he can thing on his feet and convince Linus to help him out, we will see how it goes over the month!

    Just so you all know if you name doesn’t appear above then you haven’t produced any points for TeamLTT since the start of the event, if you think this is wrong please drop me a PM with your EOC Link and we can try to find the issue!
    Happy folding,
    Ben.
     
    CORRECTION: During data validation we have noticed that Givintnt's score was incorrect and he had not yet produced any points since the start of the event, sorry about that guys!
