Who is worthy of this honor?

To nominate someone, you must give at least a brief reasoning behind why they should be nominated.

More rules and policies are below.

Nominate the best and the brightest!

From the [H]ard|DCer of the Month - FAQ and [H]all of fame:

Q: What is the [H]ard|DCer of the Month?

Every month, the team gets a chance to choose someone they thought contributed greatly to the team, and give them a bit of recognition for it. At the beginning of each month, a nomination thread is held. Here is your chance to nominate whoever you think deserves recognition. Someone can be nominated for any reason. It does not matter if they designed some massive piece of software to help the team in some way, or simply added a few boxen to ramp up their production.

Q: How do things work?

Nominations are held for 10 days starting on the 1st of each month. The nominated people move onto a poll and the Poll will be open for 10 days following the end of the nomination thread. The remaining part of the month is reserved for congratulating the winner and have fun. Same as before, vote for whoever you want, for whatever reaons you want. If there is a tie, a runoff will be held. After the winner is chosen, they are interviewed so the entire team can see what makes them tick.

For the [H]ard|DCer of the Year, there is no nominations thread because the only worthy candidates is the [H]ard|DCer of the Month winners for the current year. The poll to choose a winner is done in 2 steps : The first poll will include all 12 winners for the current year and we select only the best 4 winners which will participate in the next round. If there is a tie in the first 4 ranks, the tie winners will move together. In the second round, the one with the most votes will be declared the winner but if there is a tie, a runoff vote will be held. Each step will last 10 days.

Q: What does the winner get as prize?

Being that there is no cash flow funding the [H]ard|DCer award, there is only so much we can do in the way of prizes The [H]|DCers do not have a physical prize, but thanks to Kyle and the rest of the gang, we still have something to give winners. All winners will receive a custom title showing off their achievement.

Q: Are there any rules for this?

To nominate someone, you must give at least a brief reasoning behind why they should be nominated.


Past winners cannot be nominated until one full year after they last won.

You cannot nominate yourself.

Hard DCer of the Year winners are excluded forever.

Any contestation or question about the nomination thread should be done via PM.

Nobody wants to nom?
I sometimes stare at these threads with names in mind but I don't want to always be the one nominating someone and wanted to give others a chance to chime in.
You don't need to be a top folder or long time team member to nominate someone here. You just need to know of a DC team member who deserves some reconition and to have their name shouted out. My thoughts were that we should have another Folding@home team 33 showdown since this side of the team is very active (especially with the covid resurge) but hasn't had much love lately in the winners circle. Here is a chart of the current winners this year and from last year. We have probably greater than 200 people on this forum who contribute to some form of distributed computing on a fairly regular basis so their should be lots of good choices. Pick anyone except those in the below chart who are circled in yellow because they have won too recently to be nominated.

I will be back in a few days or whenever Pocatello decides to call this nom thread with my 33 dream team showdown picks, but I would love to see others jump in and nom.

howmanybacons is my nomination. Just beat up Grandma to take 10th:D
Im honored for the nomination thankyou.

I would like to nominate kirk121. He was pushing 11mil ppd for a while.


If anyone is interested about why I fold for team 33 its because it was the first website I extensively used to gain knowledge about building my first pc back in 2006. Loved the detailed reviews of prebuilt computers from boutique stores.
The cards I use 24/7 are:
two rtx 2060 supers
two rtx 2060
rtx 2070 super
gtx 1650 super
and just recently threw in an r3 3100 for fun
Waiting for availability of rtx 3000 like all of you probably are,
