"my gun is powerful" Also all knex regulars please read message here

OK I'm getting tired of everyone saying "my gun is...,powerful,..." Look at my instructables and you can tell I never used this statement. On my Stg44 I described how it depended on the rubber bands that you used which brings me to my next comment. Could we scrap the whole power stat and add how much power we get out of a standard rubberband? When it comes down to it it depends on what rubber bands and how many you use that determines a gun's strength. However there are a couple things on the gun that affect power-Firing pin length, friction of ammo and firing pin, length of rubber band placement, and other factors so instead of saying how powerful your gun is say how efficiently it can use like 1 medium rubber band or something. Just a thought. I know some of you do say how powerful your gun gets with just one rubberband but there are too many out there who don't describe the situation on when they consider it powerful. ~TheDunkis~ Also for any of you who consider yourself a knex regular please read this. I'm getting tired of people trying to get others to build what most the time ends up being crap because they lie about their gun on overboard. I know some of you guys do this already but could you include a paragraph similar to this (preferbly just copy and paste it in your instructables) if nothing else at least keep the whole "spread this message" part and also the started by TheDunkis part. If you are truly honest then you'll do this. Check my instructables for example. Notice how I'm completly honest and usually have more cons than pros. What does that mean? Well for one I need to come up with better guns :p but also I DID NOT include anything related to power only reliability of the weapon. We are starting a new campaign for seeing who is willing to be honest and add this list to their Instructables so please do the same with your Instructables or become one of the lieing scums. Please post this exact same thing (or slightly modified paragraph) in hopes that it may spread. Started by TheDunkis

I think if you say how many Rubber bands you use to get the distance stated, it would be fine.
TheDunkis (author)  I_am_Canadian9 years ago
Well maybe but still having a number and distance is harder than just having like one rubberband and a distance so you can see how well it does with a rubberband then they can leave it up to us to see how powerful it could get if you add more. I'm also getting tired when people are like "my gun can shoot 100'...with 20 rubberbands"
Ya. Anything suggested above would be great, but I dont think anyone will be able to enforce that rule, especially to all the knewbs who wouldent know about it....
TheDunkis (author)  I_am_Canadian9 years ago
yeah pretty much. I wish we had our own knexstructable robot to greet our newbs and tell them stuff like that.

he would actually make a good *coughsecretarycough* ...greeter but I suppose that's up to him and we would have to find out a better way of tracking new members than just constantly searching for them everyday.
you know, i would be willing to do it.

Really? It would be a ton helpful after all...you'd be doing the whole instructables community a favor.
