UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

Edited: 9/10/2008

Okay citizens of UGN, 100k ppd is within our reach. We have added several new citizens to our nation and with a concerted effort we can boost our production to new heights!! :D

We were over 70k a couple of times this week. Let's get to 100k and stay there!! :P

Now get on out there and recruit some fresh members for TR & UGN! :D

All hail UnitedGerbilNation!

The GPU2 client is really hot right now. You can get 5000 points per day with an NVidia 8800 or 9900 GPU and a single cure CPU! :o You can download the GPU2 client here. Just remember Username=UnitedGerbilNation and Team Number is 2630! :wink: :D

Points Production Hierarchy

GPU2 - Wowzer!
SMP - Good
GPU1 - Above Average
Console - Average

It's still one step, just a bigger one! :D

Seriously, I've said it before and I'll say it again, UGN should be the top folder on team 2630, if not the top folder in the world... IMHO, UGN should be plugged on the front page for every weekly folding update, asking people to join in order to create a monster folder to counter How??? with the advantage of being made up of hundreds of Gerbils so as not to be subject to the same mood swings How??? seems to have problems with...

Interesting that you'd say that at this particular moment.......

edit: sneak peek at paragraph 3 of this week's Folding Update:

Also on today's menu, TR's presiding UnitedGerbilNation recruiter, Jeffry55 has <a href="/forums/viewtopic.php?t=28594">issued a challenge</a> to his Gerbil brethern. With some recruiting, UGN could easily be the top folder on Team TR and if Jeffry55 has his way, it most certainly will!


great minds think alike!

I like the way you two guys think!! *wipes drool from chin* :D

Thanks for the sneak preview.

Edit 1: Maybe I should change my opening statement to reflect a loftier challenge.

Edit 2: I changed my opening statement to reflect a loftier challenge. A plug in the weekly update should draw new citizens to the Nation.

Edit 3: Sound off Gerbils! I started at 4k, changed to 5k, should we aim higher? Will you respond to a challenge of 10k ppd!? :o

I really like this idea! It would be tough, but it's a way for us to build our own "superhero" to battle How????. Of course it doesn't really change TR's points per day, but this is all about appearances, and rallying behind an idea. And it's also quite possible! TR can't become the #1 team in points or PPD for a long time.. but we could MAKE the #1 folder in both points and PPD! I like it!

I do plan on rejoining UGN after my 4 way "Challenge" battle to #300 is over.

This is all about adding total points to the team! I don't want a ton of people giving up on their personal effort to join a "superhero" team... That would defeat the purpose... I think we can take out How??? with UGN, but I want to see it happen as part of the effort to get NEW folders, not rearraging our current ones...

Of course current folders can join UGN if they please, I have no problem with that, but if we're going to advertise this new ambition then we should target those who aren't already folding so it has the maximum impact on the team.

/me steps back and lets jeffry resume directing UGN

I think drfish & idchafee have the right idea on how best to use UGN as a recruiting tool for Team TechReport. :D We need a large influx of new members to achieve our goal of world domination. :D

UGN may just be the hook to get new members to join the fold! We just need the right story line. :wink:

Something like a call to TechReport readers to rise to the challenge of becoming the top folding team in the world and chronicling the teams in our path with short & long-term goals and then some links to the really scary folders like HOW??? & OC-AMD (Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!, as Homer would say) with a tag line of "we need a weapon" to counter these folding giants in order to achieve our ultimate goal.

So building UGN into a giant killer could be likened to the "How do you eat an elephant ?"analogy for achieving a great thing. It would be "one folder at a time" instead of "one bite at a time". :lol:

Then, *takes a big breath* we could have UGN as part of the weekly update with a running total on the ppd gain, the diminishing delta to the Mega-folders, maybe a countdown to a recruitment goal for new members and other such measurables that would help maintain/sustain interest in attaining the long-term objectives.

I would be happy to sponsor contests with NewEgg gift certificates like the percent point gain drfish ran so successfully or a UGN recruitment contest that all Team TR members could participate in.

And spworley ............................................ you are indeed welcome to join the proud nation of gerbils as is any member of Team TR. :D

eastms.edu is a 50k ppd person which is about 2x as the next closest person beneath him.

The top 3 really aren't that far apart, well how??? gets up to about 2x as eastms, but eastms has been pretty close to OC-AMD the entire time I've been watching stats.

Attracting/Recruiting new folders to TechReport is the core of the plan. :D

Transfers from within Team TR are always welcome. :wink:

Adamantine, you are cordially invited to join UGN.

You do have a 17 million point gap to make up before you can claim the #1 folder in the world... always welcome the challenge, but it's a huge lead I've got on you. :wink:

I think it's a given that UGN needs top PPD first and total points a distant 2nd... :)

How??? is a heck of a lot closer to taking number one then anyone else and I fully expect him to and will wave as he goes by me... no offense, UGN isn't even on the top 100 list of folders yet... never mind anywhere near the top 10 or top 3!

Hey OC-AMD, I'll bet you started off not being the #1 folder. I'll bet it took you some time to get to the top. Keep checking over your shoulder buddy. We're comin'. :D

I took first place when Plext and DGRoms stop folding, then it was only a matter of time until I caught up... the only person to challenge me since is How???. I'll worry about you guys when I see you on my threat list and within 30 days of passing me... until then WAY to much can change.

Good luck! :)
