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 If you would like an official ruling, then you need to submit your question to the official FIRST Q&A. We're just a bunch of schmoes like you. Tom Line jaredhk

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 By harnessing the power of fractals, we can have unlimited power on our robot! Ty Tremblay cadandcookies
Go to Post Frank's gotta Frank. Katie_UPS Taylor
Go to Post It's crazy that people who don't know what it's like to be on a top team insist on knowing what would benefit top teams. Michael Corsetto Amanda Morrison
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 I'm still looking for someone opposed to districts who actually is IN one. PM me. DonRotolo Richard Wallace

Go to Post Fun fact: Both of the longest World Series games have now occurred at Minute Maid Park. Another fun fact: Einstein 2017 was still longer than both of them. TheBoulderite Volpidash2770
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
Go to Post We were actually going to question the rules this year about how sentient an AI has to be before we can call it part of the drive team... marshall firecrafty
Go to Post "The three most dangerous things in the world are a programmer with a soldering iron, a hardware engineer with a software patch, and a user with an idea." - Rick Cook smitikshah vigneshv
Go to Post There is no way forward if we think backwards from our predetermined conclusions and try to justify the reasoning later. PayneTrain Chris is me
Go to Post Be right back, have to go find out just how many tennis rackets I can put on a robot... Countersteer ctt956
Go to Post Don't worry about asking questions; asking around is how you learn more. CalTran ctt956
