    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.

    Could be, yes, but Twinkles had quite a few mistakes on NCA 2012 Day 1 so it’s hard for me to imagine they could’ve possibly been in first.

    Then again, I think their division (Youth 5, want to say?) is a limited one. From what I gather it’s a division that doesn’t host a lot of teams because it’s hard to scrape up that much talent among such young kids. So maybe, as far as 2012 went, the competition wasn’t as intense. I can’t find video or results from that time so I’m just guesstimating.

    ETA: yeah they only had one other team going against them and the skills disparity was pretty significant. Which begs the question of who beat them with deductions in 2011? Google is failing so hard right now.

    Anyone know where I can watch videos of Worlds routines from 2004-2015? USASF's Youtube channel only offers 2016-2020 routines.

    They were against Stingrays Teal in 2011. You also have to remember that there was a split in Y5 in 2012, so there was a true level 5 as well as a Restricted Y5. Twinkles were in the restricted division in 2012. 2013-present it has only been restricted (well, it is just level 5 as of this season).

    Y5 has always been a tiny division; even big gyms have a hard time fielding them. J5 has become increasingly the “young and talented” division because it allows for the itty bitties and older athletes.

    Yeah I found some old results and gathered there was some kind of change in 2012. Which, TBH, kind of takes some of the romance out of the doc. The whole storyline was whether or not they’d finally win NCA in Y5 after they’d repeatedly missed out. Then they did win, but it was in a different division against a smaller gym that clearly thought trying their hand in Restricted Y5 would be a good strategy and did not expect a big name team like Twinkles to move divisions.

    At least that’s what I think happened. Reading old results is a little overwhelming between all the divisions that came, went, merged, etc., and all the teams jumping around trying to keep up.

    The debut of Junior Restricted 5 a few years back pretty much killed the division.

    The point of Y5 was keeping young higher level kiddos with similar peers, but a lot of those same kids were age and skill appropriate for JrR5 when it came out so most Y5s dissolved and I think Twinkles became JuniorR5 at that point if I am not mistaken.

    Also about Y5:

    This year CEA brought Youth Elite (Y5) back.

    I don't think there are any other Y5s right now though.

    I'm 99% sure they competed against no one at all the major comps this season but did receive a bid to the Summit.

    Not sure if they would have attended or not due to lack of competition.
