Re: How do You Cheifdelphi?

Whenever I happen to be by the computer. I have the Chief Delphi forums set in my "favorites" list. I usually check the forums a few times a day just to see what's going on or to check up on a thread that interests me. I also check the forums after I've been on Ebay looking for extra parts for my '68 Mustang.

Re: How do You Cheifdelphi?

Iíve found that only a few members from any team actually are active users of Chief Delphi. That really is a shame since there is so much information here.

The beauty of Chief Delphi and what I get the most from it is the community. We all have our own teams that we are involved with, but there is so much more to it. FIRST is so much more than 6 weeks of build and some competition, but itís awareness.

Everyone is changed by the FIRST experience. We all work toward a common goal. Think about each team being a city, and FIRST as the country that we all belong to. It would be a shame if we kept our city to ourselves. We have ideas to share. Chief Delphi allows us to do that. It binds us as a community.

Re: How do You Cheifdelphi?

I guess CD is my connection to the FIRST community. A lot of times I come heat to just read some of the opinions and learn some new things. I try to use it to keep the team I mentor more aware of the FIRST community and its ideals.

It is good at reminding you how little this competition is a robot building competition at times. I enjoy reading many of the people thought and opinions and try to offer my own opinions whenever I think they will constructively add to a thread.

I am the main person who has spent time one CD for my team. A couple of mentors have been on at times as guest but don't post. I've been working on getting team members interested in joining the site because I think they could get a lot more out of it than me. I think this summer I will focus on getting our teams programmers and animators on here because CD has many great resources for these people that are currently not taken advantage of by any of my team members.

Talking Re: How do You Cheifdelphi?

There are only two other people from my team who read the board, and we're all now mentors. I use the boards to find information and news and bring it back to the team. Like back in '03 when our motors were acting horribly, thanks to CD we found out about all the various things that could cause a motor trouble, and that we pretty much had every single problem . This year CD was our best resource in figuring out what the heck was going to happen in Atlanta since we had no clue. We wuv Chief Delphi .

Re: How do You Cheifdelphi?

I have delphi as my home page so I can stay connected to FIRST whenever I log on. I like top spend time here to keep myself connected to FIRST as well as helping my team stay updated on the FIRST community. I also like to have delphi there for problems or questions that my team has.

Re: How do You Chiefdelphi?

I love the interaction. Sincere people willing to speak their mind and share ideas. What a better way to learn. I enjoy the insight of the students. being an old working guy, I have learned that instead of becoming a grumpy old man (NO comments from Team 188 or Karthik) I become encouraged and energized. ChiefDelphi extends the competition season year round and keeps me in touch with those that would like to lose track of me. I applaud the word done here and I am thankful for the priviledge of membership.

Re: How do You Chiefdelphi?

Comming from 2 active CD using teams, (263 and 229), I always have thought of CD as the place to come for answers. Now I help give the answers as a moderator and MechE mentor for team 229. If you were to ask me in 2001 when I joined FIRST where I would have been in 4 years...probably not what I would have said, but quite glad I got here.

As for reading CD threads...I usually do not read anything in chit-chat and stick to the more technical forums and off-season discussion.
