Team Geekdō (A lot of your questions about folding can be answered here.)
Folding@Home Team Information
Our team ID is 169927 and our team name is Team BoardGameGeek
There are three software components that are required for folding. A client, a work unit (WU), and a core.
So, in brief, the folding process goes like this:
Earning GeekGold and Microbadges
The first step is to get the client installed and start folding.
As you fold, you will earn points based on your contribution. (See FAQ)
GeekGold is awarded each month and is based on the amount of work contributed. The lowest contributor gets 5 GeekGold, the highest contributor gets 10 GeekGold, and everyone else is placed on a logarithmic scale between 5 and 10.
Microbadges are awarded each month based on score. The exception is the first badge which is awarded when one work unit is completed.
