It is that time again! You can almost smell the freshly cut pixels in the air! It's website update time and we need YOUR help to make it all about US!

DID YOU KNOW??? MTRAS will be 15 years old in 2022?

Our upgrade will be a phased approach with the following goals:

Phase 1 - Gathering data - Now!

We need member contributed data! Whether you've been a member for 15 minutes or 15 years, we need your help to show the local Middle Tennessee Area all that we do!
Please send in:

Phase 2 - Add / improve functionality - In Progress

Phase 3 - Engine and theme upgrade - Late 2021/Early 2022

How you can help!

Ok, so you have stuff to share! How do you share it?!? You can do that right here!

  1. First, if you haven't already, Register your profile on our site. (don't worry, you're data is not going anywhere! We have no interest in mining, sharing or selling your information to anyone)
  2. For anti-spam, anti-bot, etc, you'll need to verify your email (you'll get a link) and then one of the moderators will review your account request and approve it. (most of the time, approvals will happen within 24 hours)
  3. Once you're in, you can seup your profile. You can put in as much or as little as you want, add a profile and header picture and can add connections to other members if you want.
  4. Add content under the appropriate Community > Contribute menu item for the type of content
    • Photos/Videos - There are two places you can add these - first under your own profile and second on the Forum.
    • Weblinks - Community > Contribute > Submit a Weblink/Resource - This is for external online resources that you find useful
    • Upcoming Events - Community > Contribute > Submit an Event - Use this tool to let us know of area events that may be of interest to the group. They do not have to be robotics based but do need to relate to a maker/stem/artistic event of some kind
    • Stories / personal project blogs - Community > Forum > My Projects This section is all about your experiences with the group! Let us know about something that you learned or a memory of an event.
  5. Start a topic in the forum or answer a question from someone.
  6. If you would like to sell or give away unwanted items from your junk drawer or ask if someone has an item they would like to sell or trade, add your item/ISO listing in the Marketplace.
  7. If you find a bug, Report it!

Lastly, Thank You!

Thank you all for helping us to grow the group by getting the word out. It is due to your efforts that we have a need for these changes.
