    I think if it was for Cheer they would’ve gone straight to Navarro? I imagine they could’ve made it.

    Which begs the question: what if they did try out and were cut? I can’t imagine why they would be, but with or without the doc I’d imagine someone of her caliber would go straight to the more successful team.

    ETA: I read LaDarius is moving to TVCC. It could be for practical reasons like cost, etc., but yeah I smell a TVCC doc on the horizon.

    According to Quest Diagnostics website, i can choose to have the testing done, and pay for it out of pocket (my husband said he thinks he heard it's $120 or something), but if a doctor writes the script for it, then insurance covers it.

    I have heard this from many people so the names moving to TVCC don't surprise me.

    Question: how long/how many posts/whatever does it take to get the next status after newbie? Not terribly impatient as it’s nothing important, just curious. Thanks.

    There’s a little counter that will keep you posted on your status. I think it starts at 25 shimmies or something and goes up incrementally from there. It’s a fun little game that will keep you awake most nights.

    I miss all the shimmy/emojis we have on the boards. Just not an option using the Tapatalk app.


    my CP is my favorite son.

    How does a shimmy compare to a thumbs up? Same thing, essentially, I assume?

    I’m not even sure, actually.

    They’re essentially the same but shimmies count toward your “trophies” (each status you’re awarded) whereas likes don’t. However I’m not sure why they’re both options. I just always opt for the shimmy because if I’m going to put the effort into liking something, might as well own it.

    I know this a long shot but can anyone explain to me the background of the Twinkles doc? I know it was almost ten years ago but I have questions.

    The coaches mention that the year before (2011) they hit at NCA but lost to a team with deductions.

    But then the year after (2012) they fell all over the place on day 1, but still were in first?

    I know that score sheets change etc. etc., but I can’t really make this fit together on my head.

    For reference:

    Pretty much. Shimmy's have their own counter. I believe that what the trophies are based off of. Shimmys, thumbs up, funny, and informative are logged under the "Positive Ratings" counter, iirc. The rest under logged as "Negative Ratings".


    I wish sad jammy and the cloud 9 smilie we have here were real world emojis. I find a use for both outside of Fierceboard like every week.

    Could the winning team in both situations have had such a significantly higher raw score that the deductions didn’t change the standings? I didn’t watch the video but that’s my best guess.
