I posted a message on one of the neopets msn groups.

I also belong to a distributed computing team that is involved in several project but what I propose is I am willing to reward anyone thats contributes a certain amount of points to our folding @ home team. I will give 5np for every point anyone turns in with a minimum of 250 pts and a max of 2000 for the week plus a bonus of 10,000 np for the person that has the highest total for the week. Also I reserve the right to limit total payouts to 75,000 np per a week.

What I am asking is for people to follow the link and join neopets and atleast play a few games so I can get a referral bonus.

And if you have NP's to spare don't be afraid to donate some by going to my shop and buying some stuff.

If things work out and people do donate I will increase the payout but right now I can't offer more than I can make

Please don't steal my idea
Thank you

I don't see why. it's a way of getting more people folding. it's a kiddie gaming site based on taking care of a vitual pet. Everthing is G-rated but if any of the mods think it's out of line they can delete the thread. out of all the teams out there I would have thought overclockers would be one of the first to try to get more people folding.

Well please disregard my statement, I didn't look at all the links and I was under the impression that you were paying people to fold. Sorry if I insulted you, it was my fault.

I may be wrong but this may be considered advertising. That's against the rules here I believe but I could be wrong. Granted, it's for folding which is a good cause but I'm thinking that the mods will end up deleting this thread. Nice of you to try to get more people folding though.

I know advertising isn't allowed here but I assumed that for advertising to be effective doesn't some kind of monitary value have to change hands? I personally am not recieving anything in fact it will in costing me neo points.

sorry dude if you took it that way. maybe most of us fold for fun or for the cause but other need more motivation. I do get tired of trying do something good and just getting a slap in the face for my efforts.
