      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.

  1. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    The 3 Amigos (mudsailor, m2for and myself) are hooking into something big out west. The rest of you should join us. WetHog
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I am really enjoying the raw content. Excellent addition to this edition of the VOR. Especially the drone videos. The Waggers got some drone video as they overtook TTOP that is really cool. And the other drone footage of the boats have been fun to see. Bravo, VOR and the media guys on the boats who pull it off. WetHog

    Ive sent them a support ticket asking them about adding the yacht club since that post. They say they will once they get to it. I check just about every day to see if they add it, but not yet. They have added new yacht clubs (like Sails'N Sun) recently so there is hope. Maybe they will add it by the time we get to Auckland. Also just realized I still have all the position reports and other stuff from the last edition on this computer. I miss the old layout and controls: And my best leg from the last race: And then this bull shit: Falling off the cliff in the Southern Ocean: WetHog

    A German badass: http://www.vw.com/models/golf-r/ I am obsessed with owning a R. My buddy had an ''83 Rabbit GTI and let me drive it back in '93. I"ve been in love ever since. WetHog

    One day one of these, in blue, will be mine. WetHog
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Ok, I've been west for a while now and have yet to be included in your pictures. Where is the love? I will say I am a bit annoyed. I was the furthest west of the SA'ers for a while and then my goodnight course screwed me. Gybe Turkey and HKG came my way on hotter angles and now I am following those 2. Regardless, sleep > VORG.

    Thats pretty damn cool, Renny. Question for you, Renny. Is the RS for sale right now at my local ford dealer a close cousin to this? I ask because I am a Ford guy, but more Ford truck than car, Ford cars give me pause. http://www.uppermarlboroford.com/new/Ford/2017-Ford-Focus+RS-a7e378540a0e0a6b12046eb8d2621bc9.htm?searchDepth=3:4 But I love me a hot-hatch and I"ve driven a Focus ST in anger and I enjoyed it. I suspect the RS version is more enjoyable than a ST. WetHog

    Same here although initially I still thought Fernando was a weigh point but I still wanted to be west. Without using Fernando as my destination Zezo had me going down the African coast for most of the 1st day. So you can't just blindly follow Zezo. WetHog

    Add me to your friends list. I am about 5 miles west of Mom. I am on the east coast as well. I don't get the day/night thing either. WetHog
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    As a non-sailor I need Zezo. Without it I'd be hanging with Me Rongo, prospecting. Having said that, I like looking for fliers and chances to take with Zezo. This leg as sort of an example but last edition I took fliers on most legs and it payed off really big for me from the China leg to Auckland (went north almost to Wake Island and came down through the Marshals and finished in the 300's), Capetown to wherever the stopover was in the Persian Gulf (went way east out to the Crozet Islands then turned north and finished in the top 1000 for the 1st time) and Leg 1 to Capetown when I finally figured things out half way through the leg and then saw an opportunity going way south leaving the SA coast and made up 1000's of positions. Persian Gulf to China through the Malacca Straight not so much, forecast change really screwed me. Anyway, Zezo is the reason the VORG is fun for me. WetHog

    I screwed up just so on my bedtime course setting and I lost a bit to my friends in the West. Figures. Oh well. Having said that, it’s looking real good right now to being in the West. WetHog
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    - 7 and 1/2 days into the current Clipper leg I have 29 weather, 12 stealth and 12 help cards. - 6 and 1/2 days into the 2nd leg of the mini I have 22 weather, 18 auto sail and 13 stealth cards. These two races I have no options beyond radio and polish, just doing the bare minimum to compete. So I am not using the random cards I get every 8 hours, I always go for the 4 card option. I listed the top 3 cards I have for each race. Just thought it was interesting how much of the cards I get are not cards I could use most. Way points and navigation. Coincidence? WetHog
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Did a Zezo comparison between my current position and Get Rhythm in the east. Right now Zezo has me passing Fernando a day before Get Rhythm. Not sure if Zezo takes the 4knt minimum into account but I like where we are compared to our friends back east, currently. WetHog
