January has been a busy month on the Foldit wiki. Here are some of the highlights.
To start, here's a tip. One annoyance in working with wiki pages has been how it handles images. The images tend to end up in the wrong spot, wrapped around text where you don't want them. The following HTML can help to control where the images go:
To use this tip you have to select the "classic" editor next to the "Edit" drop-down. In the classic editor, switch to the "Source" tab. The "br" commmand can be pasted in source mode, and it's also easier to position the image tags correctly. (Image sizing still doesn't work quite as expected, but that's another subject.)
The Foldit 101 - Game Interfaces and selection interface pages were updated. There's also a new…

It's been over three years since Marie Suchard made the last blog post.
In her farewell post, Marie noted:
- The wiki is not well organized. In many pages, there is a mix of description of the game, strategy, scientific information and general thought on the game.
Not a lot has changed since then. Paul Dunn has tirelessly continued to update the puzzle results. I've made some updates, such as updating the list of Foldit Lua Functions. Bruno Kestemont, Susume, and a few anonymous folk have also contributed. (My apologies to anyone I've overlooked.)
I see that Marie may even be with us in spirit, as a certain "Msuchard" removed some malicious links from the "101 - Cookbook" page as recently as 30 December 2016.
The first few days of 2017 had been a…Read more >
I start playing in may 2008 until October 2013. I am not a biologist and learned about the game in The Economist. I begin to play without thinking too much as an occupation of my fingers when I listen to music. I was more and more engaged on almost all the aspects of the game like writing recipes, helping on the chat, being a moderator and writing in the wiki.
I played for the fun of the game. For me, the game was fun because it is not just trying many possibilities but trying to make a “good” shape of the protein. I discover the tools in playing with some help from the chat but mainly trying by myself. I liked more the early stages of the game like finding the global shape of the protein, for example to find the right order of the sheets. …

And now to my strategy:
First of all i have a few points i follow everytime! Keep them in mind everytime you got stuck!:
- Points you got, do not have to be positive at late game!
- the slowest way is the best way ;) (although we don't have time :P)

Often you get a puzzle where you can shake, wiggle and also rebuild to get about 4/5 to 9/10 of the points you will get after a bit handwork. Without handwork you will get into a peek where it is impossible to come to the top ten!
And as you can see me as a 99%-script-user i also use a bit handwork because this is essential for the later game.
- Loop Games:
- You should look for unlocked sidechains, often around a locked ligand if it is a ligand puzzle. Try to pull th…
