Users still folding for DBB

Post by Iceman » Thu Nov 03, 2005 11:06 am

Ref: http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... s=&t=39070

We still have some users that are folding for the DBB. If you know these people then please ask them to change their username to DescentBB and team number to 3074 (Setup Ref: http://www.descentbb.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=8223)

Note that my name is there also ... those points are coming from a PC I no longer have access to so I can't change it.

Users are:

Pushrod/Vindicator (292 points this week)
StressTest (723 points this week)
TopWop (2159 points this week)
Fliptw (887 points this week)

Yeah whatever... we all know you left some puters folding for DBB so nobody could come along and knock you out of the #2 spot :P

I only have one computer folding for Team DBB at this point, im not too worried about switching it over.

Yea, what I have folding will stay folding they way they are. I didn't start this team to just stop folding for it.

I wish you had voiced your opinion when we first started discussing this. I wouldn't have suggested it if I had known you were against it.

Don't have access to the machine still folding for the DBB. Also I was planning to switch the other ones back soon. We're supposed to help them out not to be assimilated.

Actually Jim asked for help in one thread then in another thread we discussed switching over. You guys never said a word. I am certainly amenable to opening up the discussion again.

I believe I have already made my intentions known if you do.

Screw it ... if you guys (ahem point leaders) wanna keep it DBB then I'll do the same. I was just trying to help Jim out and I took your abscense to mean you had lost interest.

No lack of interest, just skipping this forum since there is not much to be talking about except this convo which I missed...

But I dont think its right to axe a team that we started in order to help another. If Jim needs more folders then great but he should look somewhere else. I said "yea sure" since I thought we would literally merge, not at the cost of loosing our own team. We folded this far, now we just gonna quit to another? Just to give another guy an egostroke of being #1?

Also, it doesn't really matter who you fold for as long you fold at all.. In the long run I'd rather give my points to the community I'm active in than to a stranger.

I am with you on this ... I want the DBB team to be intact. I posted the thought as an open discussion but nobody really responded to it. I like us all being on the same team and since Stress started it I feel a loyalty to him on it all. I just wish he had responded earlier and expressed his dislike of the merger. I wouldn't have done anything if I had known. I have thought of starting an apology thread but after considering such I have changed my mind ... everyone had ample opportunity to respond.

I guess at this point I don't know what to do other than to switch back to the DBB team and shut my mouth.

Its no big deal. No need for an apology thread or anything. Just tell peeps to hook up with our team and thats it.

Gotta agree with Gren and Ice. Somehow it just doesn't feel the same being an anonymous member of another team. I'm switching back.

I had switched back to break 70,000 points being stuck 69,499 was get annoying. Since it seems everyone is switching I just leave them folding for the DBB now.
