I would be happy to contribute. we had some good mechanicals, but I would probably only submit rotors, as we need to keep our design secrets :D.
This is one of the reasons why we haven't been able to compile pictures recently, people are secretive about their builds so they are rather unwilling to submit them to the public eye. ;)

I'll start the Best of Nationals page as soon as I can. In the meantime, compile your pictures so they're ready to send!
Ah, I love those. Probably the most interesting part post nationals.

For page-loading time purposes, it would be nice for it to be like a question marathon employing the use of /hide.

I'm wondering this as well. Another thing I'm interested in is if UCF has the assortment of videos that they showed at opening ceremony on their channel if they have one. Happy, of course, is on YouTube, but I'm not sure about the others.

Yeah, I checked, and UCF DOES have a channel, but there's nothing that has to do with Science Olympiad Nationals 2014... There are a few vidoes that have to do with SO Nats 2014m but not by UCF, just some buildng event videos...and others

Be patient, the videos should be coming in the next week or so would be my best guess, there are a lot of other things that most likely beat out uploading videos.

Yeah, my friends were all nervous because of that. Did you take the geomapping test? That was really short.
Ugh, that was bad.
Not as bad as rocks. The people who ran it were nice and I think they honestly tried, so I don't want to badmouth them, but given how the event was run I doubted they knew much about scioly at this level.
Honestly, there's something wrong with a NATIONALS test if there isn't even a staple used in the test packet (well, single sheet of paper). They had the entire room, 3 rows of desks, and they crammed all the stations into one row. We were standing shoulder-to-shoulder; it was impossible to communicate with your partner without being heard.
What? R&M for me (the last time slot) was fine, only my teammate and I were totally out of whack somehow or another. The proctor was from N. MI, where I was born and a specimen of copper was mined <5 mi of where I was born. Yayyay birthplace LOL. :D The procters used all three row of stations. :I

Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
You should only create problems, that only you know solutions to.
