Any comments on which would be better?
The second one would be automatically calculated.
I like the Rookie year being shown rather than the amount of years in FIRST because people would be able to see what game got you started rather than having to figure out what year you began.

I prefer "Rookie: 2000".
This way, you can simply ask participants to fill in which season they "played" first.

Example, I joined my HS team in November 1999, but my rookie year was 2000. The 2000 game was the first one I played.

I think it is important to keep this convention in mind. I would never claim 1999 as my rookie year, but some people would...

Re: Years in FIRST?

First of all, I like the feature, it's great.

Secondly, I was noticing it's not in the list of updates on the front. Maybe Brandon could put it there? (With the neutral rep, etc.) Since, hardly anyone has added it to their profile yet, even the people who've posted in this thread.

Just a suggestion!

Re: Years in FIRST?

Okay. Awesome!

Now.....
Can you make the member list sortable by rookie year?

It would be pretty sweet to look at the "big picture" of who was involved and when.

Re: Years in FIRST?

The thing with having it sortable is that it would require that column to be shown all the time. You can search by rookie year on the advanced search page. Will that do, or should we add rookie year to the list permanently? It's easy to add to the list & make it sortable .. but do we want it on there all the time?

I agree! I 'joined' my robotics team on September of 2003! But our first FIRST game was on March of 2004 - Peachtree Regional! So I'm a rookie as of this year!

Good point!

If it's a small column, I wouldn't mind seeing it there all the time.
I think it'd be cool for the "kids" in this competition (me included) to quickly get a list of the "old guys" who's hard work has kept this competition alive for so long.

Maybe I'm just weird.

They're on there, but sorting isn't available without a hack, so I'll do that soon..

Re: Years in FIRST?

This may sound like a ridiculous question, but the year we started FIRST...does that mean the year we joined the team, or the season we were a first year? 'cause I joined the team in September '02, and I was in the '03 season for my rookie year...so I don't know which date to put! Sorry, I'm so finnicky.

Awesome idea and thanks Brandon for the update......

I think the standard for everyone should be the year of their rookie season...not the year that they first got involved. (started in fall of 1999 but my first season was the 2000 game, so my rookie year was 2000)
