Sometimes Players experience Foldit Burn out and what to do about it.
Taken from a conversation on global -
"Also, I have mentioned to some other people that I will need to leave foldit for a while. So that I can try to set up my own business, and try to get on with life. Foldit, for me, has been quite addictive. Many a time I have poured my heart into different interests, only to have my heart crushed after a few years later."
"Yes foldit can take over your life I have had a hard time balencing foldit and the rest of my life in the past. One thing is to turn off youjr computers at night and sleep. Foldit is afterall just a game, life is more important."
"Ha ha, .. how are you?"
" I am fine. I have finaly been able to just set foldit down and walk away from it. Last year i had some very serious addictions to playing foldit and had a very hard time. Who would ever beleive that an online game could be so adictive."
"Yeah, there have been some nights where I have stayed up some 3 hours past my bedtime..".
"Now i turn the computers off at night and sleep better. Remember life is what is important. Foldit is great I love it and some of my best friends are on foldit chat, but it is important not to let Foldit RULE you. Sometimes I wished that there was a licenced mental health nurse on foldit staff to help the players in need, I sure could have used one last year! Anyway enjoy playing the game thern turn it off."
" Damn this is better than WoW xD"
"Really? I know WoW can be quite addictive. Foldit can become quite addictive... if you aren't careful. :P "
"Better monsters here;)"
"We will bend these monsters of protein to our will..."
"Be in control "Nothing to see here folks! Just turn off your computers and move along, move along now"
