We have all been that clueless newbie. People on the forums, to my knowledge, try hard to explain "this idea was for last year" or that idea is not "THE be all end all official solution". We do ask for *build plans* (describing how you made it) to emphasize what ideas/materials you used. If you're very afraid about it, you could note in the pics/plans that they are based on 2018 rules, etc, but we tend to leave formatting as an exercise for you (with guidance from us)!

As for medals, you contribute a lot and...you know what, I'm going to quote a timeless quote from an old person: viewtopic.php?t=2182#p122197.

So...I don't know the topic. But for Div B space events, they stick with a topic for 2 years and change the objects...kinda. Last time Solar System was an event they made few (if any?) rules changes. As a result, I'm fine with Solar System submissions that use 2018 rules (unless someone wants to yell that's a bad idea).
Just interested, what minor changes would be made?

For Solar System?
The rules might have different Hands On/Interpretive Tasks for Division B students.
I think Solar System will be using the same terrestrial bodies, because the topic will be the same next year.

Is writing a WIDI test an option? Like uploading pictures of the build and a rubric?
Just trying my best...

There are prior examples of this (2015 SSSS, it looks like from the WIDI wiki page) so yeah.

Just got an E-Mail from the SSSS Mod team...
Are the mods already picked out or what?
E-Mail did not clearly state what happened...
Just that mod apps had closed down. :?

If I choose to upload notes, do they have to be online? Because I prefer to take handwritten notes, I don’t want to type up all my notes on a doc just to share it. Maybe I could scan them and then email it to the Mods?

The original post says that SSSS will open on June 1, so they probably won't check until then.

Yes, you can, but it should be clear that the resource was made with comparable effort to other events, such as Anatomy, Water Quality, etc.

Mods have been selected, but we look forward to seeing your submission.

As of right now, I am the only one on the summer mailing list (because we haven't added all the mods yet) and I have certainly not been looking through any tests. You will need to resubmit the test on or after June 1st to summer@scioly.org.
