Recently the topic of a chatroom for people to talk about vex has come up again. A skype chat has already been created for this and has been in use for a little over a year. What started out as Sky, Murdo, and myself has turned into a constant conversation about robots with by recent count 55 members. This chat is called Bots ‘n’ Stuff due to the nature of the chat and how it ranges in topics from VEX drive trains to Calculus.
If you would like to join just PM on the forum and I will add you to the chat.
I realize that saying it has 55 members makes it sound big and not personal but with time zones, homework and robotics we rarely have 10 people all trying to talk at once. At any given time there are probably 6 people online actively talking. The nice thing about skype is that with notification settings you can go about your day normally and then when keywords such as your name or team number are “spoken” skype will notify you.
In addition to Vexforum PMs to join you can also add tabor473 on skype and message me your team number and I will add you to Bots ‘n’ Stuff.
+1 on being added please! My skype is taylor.sluiter (7173). It would be great to get into a actual discussion with some intelligent minds instead of the usual team talk of “just put that metal there and I think it’ll work” haha
