Encouragement for the members
<The purpose of this thread is to only encourage the members on the forum to post more in general/technical forum other than just chit-chat.>
The forum does get a little slow during off-season. But few of us are still here brainstorming ideas, building cool things, designing parts. I would like to encourage all the members to post in the general/technical forums (topic related to FIRST competition) more often than chit chat.
I will admit that I used to post in chit chat a lot. I used to love the game section. But time has changed and I am more interested in looking into the technical threads and picking up some knowledge from there. Whenever I come on Chiefdelphi, I always see posts in the game sections and the general/technical threads just fade away. For example, recently Matt Krass got his vex kit and made a Triple play VEXbot and shared with us on the forum. He wanted input from us in order to make the robot work there. Only few have commented in that thread, when many of us could post in that thread and give him ideas to make his robot work better. Trust me; you will learn a lot just by reading some of these threads specially the posts by the engineers. Let me point out another example, my specialty isnít in the electrical field. But just by reading some of Al Skierkiewicz posts, I learn new things. I am not saying that the chit chat section has no purpose on the forum. It does, it gives us some good laughs when we really need it (game: person above me, questions only).
Donít forget the purpose of Chiefdelphi. It is to keep the community connected and to help each other out. Moderators have been working days and nights to keep this forum going years after years. Letís keep this place professional.
I can be totally wrong on this topic. Please do give your inputs.
