PSA to New Forum Users

It is the start of a new season and many new people are joining robotics clubs across the world. Consequently, many people are joining the vex forum. We welcome new users into the community, but there a couple of things you need to know.

Don’t ask people for robot ideas. There are lots of threads that already discuss this. You can find these with the search bar. You can also give YouTube a search too.

Don’t ask weather or not something is legal. The game manual tells you everything you can’t do. I doesn’t tell you everything you can do. Give it a read:

Think before you post. The forum isn’t discord. Don’t post the same thing multiple times and don’t post something if it isn’t relevant to the discussion.

Give the community guidelines a read. They go into more detail about what you can and can’t do on the forum:

I should start adding /s to the end of my posts but that would take away from the effect

Attention new programmers!

Whenever you post your code to the forum, always enclose it into the triple backquotes:

```
int myFunction(double foo)
{
  int bar=0;
  if( foo>0 ) 
      bar++;
  return bar;
} 
```

Also, please, check out V5 API reference here: https://api.vexcode.cloud/v5/html/annotated.html

And PROS API reference here: https://pros.cs.purdue.edu/v5/index.html

Finally, BLRS wiki has lots of very useful info: https://wiki.purduesigbots.com/

Ah, I find it delightfully rich in meta-sarcastic meta-irony that mods had to re-pin this topic just three weeks later.

I guess, the highly liked meme posts from just three of them is not enough to keep it on top.

¯\(ツ)

Note to new forum users: leave memes up to forum mods, concentrate on doing competitive robotics!
