      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    So WTF is lot 18? ENTZ existing base? or the little slice that the bridge to nowhere terminates at. gee, i hope they wouldn't need to relocate the bridge, the Association for Pointless Bridges would be up in arms.
  2. AC36 - The Venue

    I can't remember hearing any plan for relocation of the cars on Cap'n Cook? My opinion is that the event would be better hosted near the amenities of the Viaduct, rather than have a huge flow of traffic in front of the ferry building and britomart, already chocker with commuters. But nice to get the cars gone from the core waterfront which already suffers too many vehicles.
  3. AC36 - The Venue

    I really like the dispersed central Halsey/Hobson/Wynyard concept; shows flexible planning, very scalable, good viewing and access as mentioned, a boon to the viaduct hospitality biz.. only problem for me is no legacy development, the entire viaduct show came about as a result of AC and I don't hear that being mentioned in any debates; the investment in smart tourist friendly infrastructure pays off in this country with tourism set to increase almost 5% a year. I guess we're stuck with the cloud for a while longer with shed 10 being increasingly utilized by cruise ships. anyway good to have a winner on the books without too much waffling around i guess.

    But it has to be done at some time...better to charge it off against the Cup, have the tax payers pay the bill, then gift it to developers in 20 years for a token payment. Kinda like Simon H and Bayswater Marina.

  10. 30th of Nov? i forgot my calendar...but wasn't the class rule due next year?
  11. still, the "stakeholders" does piss me off a bit...glossary please
  12. Team NZ

    Congrats to Peter Burling ! Also a good engineer from all accounts to continue the talking points, who drew up and 3D printed the majority of his controls, and remember he could control most aspects of the boat from his station.
  13. hopefully we'll get some leaks from stakeholders, still not clearly defined. cue....spinbot
  14. Team NZ

    really...i'm belittling Burling for voting for him? WTF over you mention team work, which of course won the cup...the shore crew et al of course. but the most visible demonstration of one man's skills in the Match was the starts in my opinion. PB took what was supposed to be a total win by the opposing team, and crushed JS with varied tactics from a large bag of tricks that he (and of course his coaches) had developed. The tricks were well executed, and gave the team advantage as their slower reaching mod needed a leg up to dominate comfortably for the entire race, rather than play the catch up game they played for the preliminaries.

    i believe pete was trained to make the call on his own. that's why the boat was designed for him to be heads up. certainly you heard him making trim calls to GA. and everyone else was heads down. i could be wrong,
