Scott Evans has requested input on whether a mission should be considered "shared" as part of the Game Updates. If you have a preference or recommendation, please vote according to the game update. The deadline is Monday morning. http://firstlegoleague.org/challenge/robotgameupdates SPECIAL TEMPORARY NOTICE In 13 years of doing this job, I've never done this before... I'm appealing to YOU for a ruling. "Baking Soda Volcano" (a team from Oklahoma) (Ya gotta love it), asks if the Similarity mission is a shared mission for the purposes of Rule 24. And I am exactly 50/50 on this. Usually I have fifty thousand reasons why something should be a certain way, but I'm so divided on this, that I tried to flip a coin, and the coin kept landing on its EDGE! Okay, not true. Anyway, obviously the Similarity mission is not AS shared as the Play Ball mission, but the models ARE quite close to the wall, and your score is definitely both dependent on and shared by the other team. This means an expert referee could rule either way on this and be right. Or wrong. We can't have inconsistency like that. SO: Please vote over the weekend. I'm not setting up any fancy voting button. Just e-mail [log in to unmask] and put either "SHARED" or "NOT" as the subject. I'll count the votes Monday morning and replace this post with the decision. Thanks! Incase this confuses you, I'm asking you to vote on whether or not you think a robot should be allowed to reach over the table's north border wall at a tournament and interact with the other team's Similarity model. -- To UNSUBSCRIBE or CHANGE your settings, please visit https://listserv.jmu.edu/archives/vadcfll-l.html and select "Join or leave the list". -- VADCFLL administrative announcements are sent via VADCFLL-ANNOUNCEMENTS-L.
