Wait, so you want one of use to make you a program for a competition that you're entering?!?!?! Not that I wouldn't love $1000, but shouldn't you do your own work?

Hey Everyone,

Just as an FYI - These "bounties" are not promoted or supported by any ROBOTC staff member or anything with the Carnegie Mellon or Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Academy. We can't verify if this is a legitimate offer and we do not support these types of competitions as we cannot guarantee that there is a "payout" actually available.

As always, use common sense - if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

If this does start to get out of hand, we might start shutting these threads down. If you want to host a competition for money, you should do it on your own site, not on the ROBOTC.net forums.

Thanks!

For those concerned about payment...

We will send payment incrementally as each behaviour is delivered, you can pick the payment method.

Also open to escrow suggestions.

A0 is a European standard paper size so why are you talking in American Dollars? Seems contradictory.

Ha, with the current economic climate, maybe payment in Euros is not as good as it used to be! He didn't want to scare people off :)

True, true. :D Still I remain skeptical.
