Dr Joe's Gif of the Week Contest 2018: Submissions Week 7

The purpose of this thread is to collect and discuss official submissions for Week 7 of Dr Joe’s Gif of the Week Contest 2018

Note. After consideration, I have decided to allow comments as well as submissions in this message thread. Keep things pretty much on topic (let’s avoid strategy and rules discussions for example) but feel free to discuss GIFs in this thread.

Reminder of the rules/details:

  1. Clip has to be an actual GIF
    that you include in a response to THIS submission thread via that “Insert Image” icon.
    Find a public place online to host the gif file and then link to it when you use the “Insert Image” icon. You should find a sort of safe place to upload them because if nobody can see your gif because their school or work blocks the host site, you are not going to win. FWIW, I really want the GIF to play as soon as you load your message. Don’t make folks follow links if you want to win the $10.

  2. Clip must include a shot of a robot
    competing in an OFFICIAL match played the week named in the thread.
    You can have crowd shots, reactions, split screens, grinders, SpaceX Boosters, etc. but you MUST have at least a full second of an FRC robot in the Gif some how some way.

  3. You have to IDENTIFY the robot(s) and the match played in the submission thread.

I prefer the TBA match naming convention if you want to impress the judge.

  1. First come, first served. If clips of the same event are submitted, the earlier submitted gif is the winner.

This can get a little tricky. Look to copyright law for guidance. If your gif is “transformative” (say you use the same clip but the REASON it is a better gif is that you added something creative or juxtaposed other items or in some way added a transformative element then MAYBE the judge will allow a reuse of that clip). Just like in the US legal system, it is going to be a roll of the dice. If you want to risk it, go for it. Eyes wide open. Read next rule.

  1. Two things that will make it easier for me to make the voting thread.
  • Include a proposed title

for the gif for me to use in the voting thread

  • Only one gif per post
    (if you want to submit multiple gifs, make multiple message replies)
  1. I am the official arbitrator of disputes and rules interpretations.

Start your own dang contest if you are really that unhappy.
Really. Life is too short for this kind of nonsense.

Let’s have some fun.

Also, go vote for your favorite Week 5 Gif here

Since there was no week 6 thread, can week 6 and 7 gifs be eligible?


I am sorry that I just had a lost week. Hopefully folks will see that there are 2 submission threads active this week.
