This is modeled on the Bike Commuting Mileage Thread I was involved with over on bikeforums. Here's a link to The 2015 Newton Tally Thread (if you missed it).

This is NOT a competition. This is a convenient way for our members to keep track of the number of Newtons we've burned as a community, with the goal of seeing how large of a rocket we could have launched if we had pooled our resources together.


How it works
. One person starts. They write their name down, followed by a space, a series of periods, another space, then post their total newtons burned this year. Inside parenthesis you can add optional information such as HPR level certification, number of motors burned, number of launches/static tests done, and team affiliation (such as a TARC team)

The next person copies the list, and only if they have burned more newtons adds their name above the previous entry (then the periods, then the total newtons). If they burned less, their name goes below. Please note: Instructions on keeping the list aligned are provided below.

Say that a 3rd person has burned more than the first, but less than the second. They first copy the list, then sandwich their name in (with the periods, and total newtons).

When a person has burned more newtons than their own previous record, they copy the list, and move their name according to where they now stand, and update their total.


Example:

I'll start the list. After my name, I add a space, a series of periods, another space, and my total Ns. Additional (Optional) information such as your HPR certification level, number of motors burned, and number of flights can go inside a set of parenthesis. I've also switched the font to "Courier New" to keep things easy to align.

K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L1, 0 motors, 0 flights)



Then TopRamen joins in. He's burned more than me. So, he copies the list, then adds his name and score above mine.

TopRamen ................................. 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L0, 0 motors, 0 flights)

You'll notice that we're now not *quite* aligned... So, TopRamen needs to change the font of the list to "Courier New", and maybe change the number of periods to get us aligned.

TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L0, 0 motors, 0 flight)

There... That's better.



Next comes along Rex R, and he has 2.5 Ns. He copies the most recent copy of the list, and sandwiches in his name, number of newtons, and the other (optional) info, then changes the font back to "Courier New".

TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)
K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L1, 0 motors, 0 flights)


Oh, but I finally launch a few, and now I've got 7.0 Ns. So, I copy the list, find my new space, and update my score.

K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L1, 3 motors, 3 flights)
TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)


Now, let's say that a team effort would like to add their Newtons. I'd propose that they use the tag "Team" then the name of the project (say TARC) and location (if applicable) (e.g. Team Cineroc). Team members shouldn't claim team acquired Newtons as their own, but can note them with their totals.

Team Cineroc ................................ 75.0 Ns (11 motors, 11 flights)
K'Tesh ....................................... 7.0 Ns (L1, 3 motors, 3 flights)(+75.0 Ns, Team Cineroc)
TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)

[EDIT] Changed "launch"/"launches" to "flight or "flights"[/EDIT]

And so on. Just remember to copy the most recent copy of the list. Please add additional periods to your (and other's totals) to help keep the list readable.

This year, I've also added the NS of the HPR motors from the beginning. So if your first launch this year is a HPR, just sandwich your name in at the appropriate spot.


To keep the list in order:

Highlight, and copy the latest version of the list. Then paste it into a new post, you will need to highlight the entire text (I right click and "select all"), and then find the "font" drop down menu.​

Next, after clicking the drop down menu, you'll see a list of potential fonts (and almost completely hidden at the bottom of the first view you get of the list is "Courier New"​

Select "Courier New" and the list aligns.​

Make your changes, and save the post, and the list is much more readable.​


Of course, this thread depends completely on the honesty of the people involved, and as there's no prizes, there's no point in lying.


Now Newton needs to get burned. So, let's get started. And since I'm currently in the People's Republic of China, and since it's now 2016 for me, we can go ahead and get started. However, I don't know when I'll be able to launch again.

Happy 2016!
Jim

Does launches mean number of flights, or number of venue events?

Number of times you put a rocket on a pad, and it flies.

I've gone and edited the OP and the list to change "launch" or "launches" to "flight or "flights".

Is there an altitude it needs to reach before it's a flight? I recall flights where the rocket gets 50' off the pad the the ejection charge goes off, and such :=)

I'm thinking height of blast deflector + .000001 inch, as long as the whole motor burned.
For the record I counted partial burns last year, though I only had one -

It did not seem worth trying to calculate a partial burn, and at least for commercial motors needing to buy a new one seems a reasonable metric.
