    Quick Question about Folding


    I want to ask a quick question about the folding plug-in that is being used for vBulletin. I was looking inside the Folding Milestones Thread and noticed that there were a couple of people there that had a lower score and fewer WUs, but had one cog beside their rep.

    Take Gimp for example. He has a score of 1103 and has completed 8 WUs and has one cog, whereas I have a score of 4403 and have completed 20 WUs, but don't have any cogs? I noticed that my username on my profile page is all lower case (it's correct on the team page), could it be that the script is case sensitive? I did notice that Profftnt's Folding name is all lower case, so it's unlikely that's the problem.

    I feel like I have done something wrong, or forgotten to register somewhere - I feel left out of the Happy Cog Gang

    Have you added your Folding ID to your profile? Under User CP ->Edit Options at the bottom, it asks for your 6 digit ID. You have to put it in there. Not sure about where to find your number, go into the milestones thread and search for "user id" and there a bunch of posts to show you where to get it. Also, be sure you're on the devshed team, 12912. That should get you set up right.

    And you'll get your first folding icon when you complete your first WU and then a new one for every 10000 points thereafter.

    ... and you have to wait till the next update, usually nightly for the changes to take effect on your "cogs"

    Yeah, there's a thread about folding here somewhere. Searching will help you find it.
