Hey, thanks @bls1999 for creating this thread. Nifty!
Anyways, I have a question for @Jacob / @Clock88 regarding Folding@Home (better knowm as F@H). You might remember all those crowns and cowboy hats on PR2.
The only way we could get them was by ‘Folding’ points (5,000 for crown, 100,000 for cowboy hat) on F@H (excl. contests). Similarly, we are able to get rank tokens as well (4 in total, if Im not wrong, the fourth one being 1,000,000 points)
My guess is that this was Jiggmin’s way of giving us all a gift for supporting Team Jiggmin (143016) in helping cure cancer (and other protein related diseases).
There was one more programme like that, which was FreeRice, though we didn’t have a prize system.
Do you think that we will still be using an F@H based reward system for a newer Platform Racing games in the near future?
Somehow, I feel it will be difficult to implement it as users registering as usernames of people who already have prizes will be a major issue.
What do you think?
EDIT: Another question I’d like to ask is, why has all of Jiggmin’s levels been deleted and why did he get demoted to Moderator status on PR2?
I’ve just noticed that his levels aren’t accessible from the search level feature anymore. The only wy to even play Newbieland 2 and Hat Factory are from the Classic Campaign itself.
Here are some screenshots below.

Levels deleted (hackers?): http://prntscr.com/g5r0hf
Do you think hackers have gotten hold of his account? I doubt Jiggmin will delete his levels and demote himself. Okay, maybe the demote could be because of getting banned (somehow)
Edit 2: I sincerely apologise for having made my questions so, so, so long
