Yep.

Re: (NOT SPAM) Nintendo NES Classic giveaway presented by Two Pencil Designs!

While Alex and TPD does great work (still drink out of the glass from them!), I do think this is at least off topic and should be moved to Chit-Chat. Unlike the keyboard, Vex and Andy Mark products, a Nintendo isn't really useful to any robotics team even if it is being given away by a company whose partially sells to FIRST teams.

(That being said, this may be my brilliant plan to win the prize by moving it to chit chat so no one else sees it )

Re: (NOT SPAM) Nintendo NES Classic giveaway presented by Two Pencil Designs!

I guess I don't feel the same about this thread as others...

What I can say is that since joining FRC in 2012 and then perusing CD I have found many useful threads/posts such as this one that has led to 4607 using many vendors.

We have items from Spin-off, Rev Robotics, Stereo Labs, nVidia, etc - all 'advertised' on this forum. A major inspiration for my team's advancement is from CD threads and discussions. We use this information found on CD to build our program. Not only that, but our local hub has been able to grow because of advancements and outreach such as this.

And the Cooler Master keyboard that we recently received has intrigued many of my students that have never seen a mechanical keyboard such as this. This has led to at least one new member on my team - so these type of companies and these promotions are beneficial to those that gravitate towards them.

Is it a gray line? Maybe. Is this company fully in line with working with FRC teams? Yes. Do they aid teams that are needing support in creating a more polished product? Yes. Does it advance the overall quality of FIRST? I cannot say at this point - but it has greatly impacted my team.

I will be passing the information from TPD on to our local hub teams that do not have the in-house marketing teams or the sponsors able to create such products.

Just my two cents.

Aww, but I ENJOY getting all up in arms about something that's ultimately inconsequential!

In all seriousness though, Merry Kick-Off Day.

For example, the Cooler Master representative has made a clear effort towards understanding and being part of the community, and I appreciate that.

Re: (NOT SPAM) Nintendo NES Classic giveaway presented by Two Pencil Designs!

One of the many things I love about CD is how knowledgeable and passionate everyone is. It really is a wealth of information, which is great for me since this whole robot thing is still new to us as a company, but we are quickly learning. I look at our giveaways as a way to say thinks to the community for answering our questions and helping us. I get messages almost daily asking for stuff and I try to help out as much as I can.

To be fair, compared to the opinions that Alex usually posts on CD, this is, in fact, not very spammy!

I think Alex and TPD make some great products. It's nice to see local FIRST people make it big.

Shouldn't the winner be one of ctt956, Wayne Doenges, or XaulZan11, as they were the only ones to comment on TPD products on CD?
