Q195 Section 4.3.1 and the portal requirements don't agree. What do we follow?

Post by Robot »

Q195: Section 4.3.1 requires (a) a 500-word limited description of the design and (b) a separate 500-word limited description of the business model. However, the submission portal separates each of these requirements into two parts and each part has very specific content requirements, as well as, separate word limits. This is confusing in that we’re not sure what the actual requirements are. Do we follow the manual or the portal or try to follow both?
A:
Sorry for the confusion. The portal and manual will be updated (in [Team Update 18](http://firstfrc.blob.core.windows.net/f ... date18.pdf)) to reflect that, for the design and business model sections of the form, the 500-word limit applies to the first question, and the 2nd question is optional (skipping these optional parts of the form will have no ill effect on the team's submission).
