From my understanding, that shouldn't be a problem. The rule says, your bot can't be extended more than 60 inches throughout the match. Your strategy doesn't conflict with the rule. I would suggest you to ask this question also in Q&A.

This seems to be a common (wait, no, overwhelmingly common) occurence. So all I've got to say newbz is search before you post, jeez!

Just kidding.

If you found that offensive I'm sorry but it was too funny.

I really do apologize.

So my point, aside from bad jokes that aren't half as funny told through a forum, is that there's a good way and a not as good way to help people post in the correct place, etc etc. I know I'm not going to get shouted down for this here, but I'm not sure exactly /WHY/ bringing back an old thread is a big deal. Ah, whatever.

Also, for me, myself, personally (that's me) I am more cautious posting a new thread and less cautious jumping into an ongoing discussion. Now I guess not everyone has to be exactly like me, but we could all try a little harder.

From my understanding this WOULD be a violation. However, I'm really not sure. I've been pretty imersed in a lot of things, so though I haven't drowned, I haven't made it through the entire rulebook either. I have no interest in (and neither does Arefin, I'm sure) in entering into a flame/dispute. I very well could be wrong.

Don't listen to me.

It actually depends on the thread. If it's a highly controversial topic, and most people decide to let it lie, then one person comes along and brings it up again, people will jump back in and duke it out again. Most people don't like this. There are other threads (mostly in Chit-Chat or Game Design, I think) where it's almost expected that the thread will die, then be revived later by someone with a new point of view. If it's a thread like this one, most people out there won't get mad.

Re: Welcome the Newbies

We are getting way off topic in this thread. Please PM each other about your concerns.

... and here is the answer for AceOfSpades...

<R05> At the beginning of the match, the maximum allowed size of the robot is 28 inches (71.12cm) by 38
inches (96.52cm) by 60 inches (152.40cm) tall.

<R08> Once a match begins, robots may extend horizontally beyond the 28-inch x 38-inch starting size under
their own power, up to a limit of 60 inches in either horizontal cardinal dimension. The robot may not exceed
the 60-inch height restriction at any time during the match. In other words, after the start of the match the
robot may expand up to a maximum volume of 60 inches by 60 inches by 60 inches. The one exception to the
height restriction is provided in Rule

<R13>. Any restraints (elastic bands, springs, etc.) that are used to
maintain starting size must remain attached to the robot for the duration of the match.

To answer your question (again) AceOfSpades... I don't see a problem with your strategy. Good luck.

Re: Welcome the Newbies

Ok, yeah it's going wayyyyyy off topic. So heres a refresher on what the real topic is.

Its pretty much saying that we are here to help you, and usually we can, but we come off mean at times. It happens, thats life, some times it gets worse, like you PM someone yelling at them and give them negative reputation.

Veteran members-let it slide. You were a rookie once too, and I'm sure you thought about that question also at one point or another. Answer the question, ask if they have any more questions and help them.

As for the new guys out there, try to help us too, search the forums, search the rules. Please read through the rules completely if you haven't had a chance yet. That applies to everyone, you may think of something you haven't thought of yet too. If your thinking if making a thread, don't just search, browse around too, find the best sub forum for it to be in. It'll help the speed in which your answer will get question answered and you won't have to use the Shunned *bump* (nobody really likes them that much, if you do bump it, add something constructive to it, so it just doesn't say "Bump")

Re: Welcome the Newbies

Great, now I have that song stuck in my head, with the new words.

(And considering there is a rule saying you cannot attatch yourself to parts of the field, etc, I would think that is against the rules. I forget where it is in the rules, I'm too lazy to look at the moment)

You'll probably have to resize it, though, since it can only be 80x80 pixels.
