Re: Trouble joining the SciOly chat.

That is out of our control as we use a third party IRC network, which appears to have blocked your IP address for some reason. Your best option may be to contact the network from their website and inquire about any bans.

Re: How Could We Improve Scioly.org?

Is it possible for us to be able to change our usernames? It has been our long standing policy to not offer username changes without extenuating circumstances (if you or anyone else believe they have such a circumstance, please message the admin group privately justifying your request). However, we...

Re: Density Lab, Herpetology, or Write it do it

There are individual threads for each of those events in other parts of the forums. Please post requests for help there. However, I suggest you start by reading existing resources (such as the wiki pages and old threads that you can find linked in the respective wiki pages) and then ask more specifi...

Re: Double Posting Encouraged!!!!!!!

This falls into the too spammy to be allowed category of posting "games". Locked. Rule of thumb: posts in a posting game should require some degree of effort.

Re: How Could We Improve Scioly.org?

Is it just me or do other people get the ERROR screen at times? Are you talking about roughly an hour ago or at other times? The one an hour ago was due to an issue against which I already took action. That would be during the past 24 hours. It was at its worst from 8am CT to 6pm CT. Most likely du...

Re: The Union of Safety for SciOly Engineers.

8. I know this is a popular thing to do, but I'll say it anyways: don't overcharge your LiPo batteries! It's going to be a bad day if you have to explain to your parents how the house burned down or how you or a team member ended up in the hospital. Burning lithium and chemical fires are no joke. B...

Perhaps because there was no Maglev in B (speculation).

Re: Shock Value/Circuit Lab 2019

I have no memory of any magnetism for Circuits, only MagLev. Although I do think there used to be some stuff about magnets in Shock Value when I did it in B.

No excessive use of caps. Use of caps lock constitutes yelling, which is disruptive. This also applies to usernames.

Technically...

What are your best "technically..." facts based on niche or pedantic definitions? Technically the entire eastern US* mainland is an island because it is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, the St. Lawrence Seaway/Great Lakes, a few canals, and the Mississippi river (known...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

One of my biggest TV/movie pet peeves is when they have a hacking plot of something physical and no one thinks to just go to the physical controls. Hacked thermostat won't let you turn off the heater? Flip some breakers and/or turn some valves and problem solved until you need to turn the heat back ...
