I read all of the feedback on this thread, and have come to 2 conclusions, 1, 50k is waaaaaayyyyyy to much in,my opinion, and 2, i love the body peice idea.
Seriously that would be impossible for me i have 20 400 after 75 wus, and i get 200 points for each 4 days, i seriously cant fold anymore so i give up already on getting cowboy.... even though i want it sooo bad
Here's an idea for you all:
Since it's currently impossible to rank up to 150... (or at least, it's an extremely long and arduous process that wouldn't happen in anyone's lifetime....)
After you fold 2,000,000,000 F@H points you get quadrouple exp gain... Or more...
I'm just joking.
In order for you to insult me I would first have to value your opinion.
I feel that there should be more rewards from crown to cowboy. Going from 5000 and jumping to 100000 is a little much. Maybe a reward at 50000?
That would take me about 5 years to fold so.. I cant

Waiting for 100k is way too much, but 500k? Gidins me?
Yeah, yeah, sure, it's about curing the cancer,
but I doubt a little people would fold if there were no rewards,
90% of the people are folding for the rewards, and 50% of that are folding for crown.
It's easy for you to say, Nikc.
And you have a point Nick. If EVERYBODY were to stop at 5,000, then we'd have around 10 Million, not 200 Million, and with only 500 cowboys, and the increasing number of fast-folding computers becoming cheaper and cheaper, I'd raise one of the milestones myself, maybe the +3 ranks to 2,500, add something at 50,000, and something at 500,000. Maybe, if needed, another something at 1,000,000. Because with the speed of PCs these days, I'm hitting a million in 4 months roundabout, and during the wintertime, I can do that in 3 months. The point is, you can easily, with a $1250 budget these days, make a powerhouse folder that can fold 40,000 PPD running 24/7. Too bad my dad is stupid enough to OC it, which IS dangerous. It's because of the people that still fold past 100,000: rips555, deathbygabe1, PrinceCharming, Jiggmin, Fred the Giant Cactus, me, and some others, that we are rank 87 today, and rank 84 in a week.
Fred the Giant Cactus is a fake name, account doesn't even exist, and the name is too long to register,
so it's basically 16 People do.
Nikc, if there is a new reward for the folding, there will be a Massacre cause by me .
Millions of bugs, ants, spiders will die.
It's easy for you to say, you are rich and you can offord that crap, mate,
but the wouldn't stop most of the people to fold.
No matter how many times you say "It's for Curing Cancer" I will always believe that F@H is nothing but a bloody bullcrap,
how in the name of earth can that cure a cancer, I guess the same way by Liking a Status on Facebook.
Maybe Jiggmin believes that, but I think of it another way, EVEN if it is Standford.
Yes, it WAS three years, and yes, it may encourage someone to Fold more, but I doubt
After using my PC to fold 4200 Points in 18 Days my PSU Shut down, it wastes too much energy on a PC,
It's very easy for the lads who folded 500k to say, but think about other people, it's not that easy for them,
I think pride is pretty much a good reward for them,
There is No reward that big for 500k, maybe 1000 Bucks, 10 Plus rank up and a lot more.
This pc is only $500, and yet it can easily fold a cowboy in a week. It doesn't take a top of the line PC to fold 100k anymore, pretty much any new desktop can easily fold a cowboy within a few weeks max, and most new laptops can manage it within a month or two. Further, it is just a bunch of pixels in a game. Its not like it will be the end of the world if there's one more bunch of pixels you can't wear on your head.
And you just can't say F@H hasn't accomplished anything. Here is a list if 100 scientific papers that cite F@H results in some way. While it isn't going to cure cancer or anything else on its own, it gives valuable help and saves the time and money of researchers who are doing their best to find cures for many different diseases.
A great idea to bring back the folders, but that would be a bit too much power. Armor that acts like a Crown + a Cowboy? You're practically invincible. Also, 500k is a bit much, perhaps 250k or 300k would be a little better.
