usfirst.org Website Being Decommissioned

Dec 23, 2016 Written by Frank Merrick.

 

The old usfirst.org website, which can be found here is scheduled to be decommissioned on January 31, 2017. The data currently on the site is being retained, but the site itself will no longer be available.

We recognize that some folks still use the old website. We’d like to know what specific data and features are available on the old website that you think are missing from the new website and would like to have available or implemented. Please send your suggestions to Jamee Luce at frcteamadvocate@firstinspires.org. The most helpful suggestions will be very specific (if you reference a page on the archive site, please consider pasting the archive link in your email) and also include a solid ‘why’ about retaining the data or feature. We’re likely to be receiving more requests than we’ll be able to implement and will need to prioritize.

 

For folks celebrating Christmas on Sunday, I hope you have a great one!

Speaking of Christmas, check out the great light switch cover a few of the staff got me. Talk about adding an artistic touch to an item normally just considered functional!

Please transfer all archived game documents and event results. Right now the only place to find rules and kit of parts contents from 2007, for example, is the old website.

Hi there!

We are definitely planning to make sure the archived game documents are available before the old site is decommissioned. Please find event results from 2006 through 2016 here: http://frc-events.firstinspires.org/.

Thanks!

While the old site no longer publishes the blog, I miss the RSS feed that was available from it, made it much easier to keep track of new blog posts. Please implement one here!

Hi there!

An RSS Feed is available here. You will need to download the appropriate plug in for your Browser, and the RSS Feed option is at the top of the blog. If you have more questions or need more assistance, please send an email to firstroboticscompetition@firstinspires.org.

Thanks!
