The Blue Alliance has set up an e-mail address for teams to submit photos of their 2009 robots. By building a complete set of robot photos, The Blue Alliance hopes to make pre-scouting for regionals much easier and more efficient for teams.
To submit a photo of your team or another team’s 2009 robot, send an email to [email protected]. Attach a horizontally oriented photo of your robot named ###.jpg where ### is your team’s number. For instance, if you are team 5462, attach “5462.jpg”, and if you are team 1, attached “1.jpg”. Automated scripts handle downloading and processing the attachments, so it is important you stick to this convention!
Send a photo of your bot to [email protected] and help scouts see just how great of a machine you’ve built!
Thanks Greg. Sorry to pester you about it. I do still have a problem, however. We have a very vertical robot, so I have to work on that horizontal thing. Actually I was just yowling at the kids for taking all these sideways pictures that I have to rotate…
As long as it fits in an e-mail, nope! I’m going to resize them before posting.
You can submit a vertical photo. It ought to work, but it may not wind up being resize to the same size as everyone else’s. You can put a front and side view side by side to make two vertical photos more horizontal as well, or add team logos or such. Horizontal-ness isn’t really a hard requirement, but it’s easier for me to deal with.
I noticed that when teams batch submit their pit recon photos, it automatically overwrites old photos on the pages. Sometimes this is good when a team iterates, but often a pit recon photo shows less detail than the team supplied photos. I noticed this when 1714’s robot was replaced from a bumperless side view (which due to being made of lexan showed everything about the robot) to a bumpered front view, which doesn’t show details the old photo did. Is there a way for TBA to keep multiple photos per team?
I couldn’t find a better thread for this so I figured just use it and hope its alright.
I have sent in a photo that I wanted to upload for the 694 tba page and overwrite the existing one but that was over a month ago and it still hasn’t been put up so I was wondering if it is just impossible for the photo to be overwritten.
