      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. Live Racing Thread

    Apologies if this was covered before; there was discussion, but not sure if it was ever cleared up. Is this (a) first team to reach 7 points wins? or (b) a 13-race maximum? There's one case where those criteria do not mesh, ie, Current score (points, not races) NZ has 4 points OR has 1 point So far 6 races have occurred, leaving a maximum of 7 races (assuming the 13 max rule in (b) above applies). If these 7 would end up with NZ winning 2 and OR winning 5, this would yield: NZ would have 4 + 2 = 6 points OR would have 1 + 5 = 6 points For the case above, would a 14th race be added to allow someone to reach 7 points? Or does a 6-6 tie default to the Defender? If a tie defaults to the Defender, then OR only needs to win 5 out of the remaining 7 races, not 6 out of 7.

    Sadly, too many Americans would rather sit on the couch and watch the KarTrash-ians

  4. This is true for most penalties, but in most classes the race officials can red-flag (or equivalent) certain types of penalties for immediate execution, typically including those which appeared to be intentional and could have caused serious injury, death, or major property damage. Seen a few in the past several weeks which were questionable. But in general, yes, they penalized team should be able to choose when to discharge the penalty.
