      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. IRC Revalidations 2017--Increases?

    Every rating system has to have a way of rating un-measured features; in IRC it is Hull Factor but these days that is calculated using objective inputs. Average rating 1.000? Don't believe everything you read 'somewhere'! Re your own rating - as Who's your daddy says, there are very few identical boats. Have you compared the two certificates to see where there are data differences?

    Ohhhh no. Don't blame IRC for 'endless W/L races'. On the contrary, IRC works best on a variety of courses, specifically NOT just W/L. RORC has been promoting course variety for IRC racing for years. If event organisers are too lazy to do it, or they have pressure put on by the boats designed for W/L courses, don't label that as a weakness of IRC.
  9. One Ton Cup Revival 2014

    +1 Bloopers are currently illegal under IRC sadly...shouldn't be. I'm racing an old IOR warrior that has one in the locker. No they are not, who told you that? Bloopers usually rate as a headsail in IRC (defined by the width/foot as normal).
