Go to Post There seems to exist an entire contingent of people who are so blinded by brownie-dogma that they will not even entertain a new dessert paradigm. JVN JohnSchneider
Go to Post The first 80% of the tasks take 80% of the time. The final 20% of the tasks take the remaining 80% of the time. garyk baumgartensam
Go to Post I'm a lazy mechanical designer. Any problem I can bunt into the programming world I will. JamesCH95 Monochron
Go to Post Many years ago, when our team initially started this website, we hoped it would be understood by those that choose to use it - respectful, shared thoughts and ideas would yield a better FIRST community. meaubry Cothron Theiss
Go to Post What kind of chaos? If you would, please describe the chaos in more detail for the benefit of interested readers. Ether cadandcookies
Go to Post +1 for cardboard assisted design (CAD)! Richard Wallace Skyehawk
Go to Post Brevity is the soul of wit. JVN itsjustjon
Go to Post Reliability counts. Inconsistency makes great robots lose events. Murphy's law knows no bounds. ratdude747 aronsa
Go to Post I agree it's a terrible idea, but part of me also feels like it'd be fun ;) FredyK200 Xand10
Go to Post There is a game design philosophy which goes something like: "Understand the difference between challenges and frustrations. Eliminate frustrations. Do not leave frustrations in place and pretend they're challenges." JVN CalTran
Go to Post Walls are put there to see how much you really want it. Daniel_LaFleur RoboChair
Go to Post If there is no creative defense this year, I'll have to go back and re-examine a lot of my basic assumptions. Things like length, time, and gravity. GeeTwo cadandcookies
Go to Post You know that clever thing? Don't do that. It's ok to take risks if you think everything through, but if your CAD looks like an Inspector Gadget cartoon, its time to slow down... dmaggio744 Bkeeneykid
Go to Post Code for all scenarios you need to handle and pray to RNGesus. RoboChair kiettyyyy

Go to Post We've been developing some — as freshman put it — "hella lit" code. solomondg Monochron
Go to Post Parts are replaceable, you are not. RoboChair ctt956
Go to Post Shaming students for not attending as much or leaving is not fair to them. Vale bduddy
Go to Post Check in with members that aren't in that core group more often. These are the members most likely to get ignored. Vale bduddy
Go to Post Show that the students matter to the team, and that they're doing something useful. Even the kids that you might not think want to be useful, they want to be useful. Vale bduddy
Go to Post Remind students that it's okay to take breaks, or even quit the team if they have to. Tell them you won't be disappointed, or upset. Even if students don't end up leaving the team, just knowing that option is available is such a weight off of one's shoulder. Vale bduddy
Go to Post My pants reflect those of my team. marshall IndySam
Go to Post you can't pick and choose which parts of your identity "actually matter" when you post online. Either own all of it or don't post - the disclaimer does nothing. connor.worley Jeremy Germita
Go to Post Make sure to get the polarity right otherwise things will get explodey. solomondg Xand10

Go to Post Perfect! Now I can market another robotics skill as applicable to life -- learn to make bumpers, extend that skill to wrapping presents! MechEng83 CalTran
Go to Post In short, I'm mentoring, I swear! Andrew Schreiber Justin Foss
Go to Post And here we see three programmers in their natural states— one asking questions, and two flaming over an arbitrary technical choice. cadandcookies EricH
Go to Post I don't have any hard evidence of that, of course, but evidence doesn't actually seem to be a requirement for posting in this thread. dtengineering cadandcookies
Go to Post What's new and different about it? It's red. Lil' Lavery piersklein
Go to Post I can't speak for other teams, but typically on 973 we make robots that drive forwards and also backwards. AdamHeard Nick_Coussens
Go to Post Aim to have a rule added to the manual. marshall Billfred
Go to Post The better role models we can be, the better the new crop will be that come into CD. BrennanB Whippet
Go to Post ...there is a difference between the correct call and the right call. Michael Corsetto ctt956
Go to Post I heard tell the legacy usfirst.org site was run off an actual God-to-honest raspberry pie. Crust and all. Skyehawk Billfred
Go to Post Having an actual water game is more probable than Minnesota going to districts so you better buy a life jacket everyone hutchMN ctt956
Go to Post Welcome to the 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition... Waitlist Whirlpool! SenorZ robochick1319
Go to Post I sacrificed a live chicken to the IT gods and I'm currently chanting the hymn of the old IT admin "Please work... please work... please work...". marshall Billfred

Go to Post Our team is attending an upcoming event this weekend, so I have to get my entire life and scouting sheet together. kevjapan Emmerz
Go to Post Just to confuse the GDC, that should probably be done on Q&A opening day... they won't expect a bumper question until Build Week 4! EricH Xand10
