Well I guess what qualifies as being "enough traffic"?

I have to admit, If I hadn't seen this thread pop up on the forum ticker on the thg homepage, I would never have known about it. I had heard of the SETI distributed computing deal, but not this.
This in my opinion is a much more down to earth (pun intended) effort than the seti project and i'm happy to be able to provide a few clock cycles to a cause such as this.

I've seen this type of post time and time again. There are actually quite a few repeating topics that pop up on this thread. Most likely because nobody wants to read through 700+ posts to get caught up.

I'm not saying we need a top level section, but we almost have enough content in our Folding sticky as the Hardware->NIC section as a whole. Also having a section of our own will allow us to break up the topics into different threads so we aren't asked the same questions over and over. The folding project is a very worthwile meaningful scientific study, which could use everyone's help. We sponsor THG as a team on Folding at Home, but we are just asking for a little sponsorship from our forum.

Sorry for the double post in the "feature request section". I didn't realize that "structure" indicated forum structure.

too many threads about this topic...j/k...j/k

I just think that thirty pages is not enough to warrant a new section, however, since some sections only have about 50 posts, maybe they will allow a section for folding.

Do you have any idea on how to approach the MODS to see if they would consider it?
