Heck, I'll give it a thought. Might just get a 'bug' into someone that would otherwise not develop.
Maybe that bug will be greatful to EVGA's folding team.... instead of becoming an [H] teammember for being rudely treated here.
Just never know sometimes.
go for it sean -
if he/she becomes a member here or for crunching then it pays for itself
if you don't I might for the right reason
Im already helping my NvidiaU2U team out (just to keep my postion and help out the team a little- and foster new members there and possibly bring them here)
however this could open floodgates of members from every team asking for people to fold for them (playing us as suckers too)
and in return they do nothing for us - other than steal our production...imagine if it turns into 100's or 1000's per month
also imagine making multiple accounts(10 from each member) - fold a few GPU units then send out posts/letters to other teams (as an organized attempt to steal PPD from multiple teams to inflate their teams PPD) saying they need help
This can happen...they see we will help out any person that posts a sob story - we get flooded with them and production goes down
what we have here is someone who hasn't folded for any length of time - yet asks for someone to help him
even tho he shows no interest in production (or can't produce) and there will probably be no guarantee he/she comes here or that any production will be forthcoming here or elsewhere
ExTTreme production is from July 2010-Dec 2010 (only) and only 5000 points?
funny how his/her own team can't help either (19,000 members - 500 active) http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=143016
that's more members than our team
Now if the person would explain theirself and their situation -
like why do they need it?
why they can't produce?
this currently hasn't been the only one Ive seen lately - we had an earlier one requesting the same thing I recall(different user)
I don't believe it will really help the team all that much...but it's worth a shot
PS: Also of Note - it will place him in the top 20 of the team by doing so - not fair to the other 18000 people there
