      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.

  2. AC36 CLASS RULE

    The big issue with the virtual box is how the heck are the crew supposed to see it?

    Did you not have a look at this interior walk-around thing? http://guidedtours.property3d.co.nz/tour/byRw0YfEdZb1gCPCYzNOW?scene=-36.84089891908084|174.758624281263|73.26823044239849|24.553720678777815|0.3299999999999999|9mfAvQ7QeT4AAAQvOYU7zQ|false|GOOGLE
  4. Same could be said of the JC75...
  5. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Bullshit. We have gigabit down, 400mbit/s up residential fibre at very reasonable rates now but you don't need anywhere near that much bandwidth to stream 1080p. VDSL is more than adequate. The bitrate they were using for that live stream was probably not even maxing a 1Mbit/s upload on ADSL1/2.
  6. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Much better vid quality, how the hell did they have such terrible quality that first time... Interesting that they seem to have had relatively few questions from the public so that they wound up with a bunch of team member/journo hack questions. Edit: they didn't look too much like they believed some of those answers >_>
  7. Found this in youtube recommended list lol

  9. Thats the conclusion of most of us other than Drug®Lord©
  10. AC36 CLASS RULE

    The screws are to define reference points for measurement of the rest of the hull, they aren't the actual measurement.
  11. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Yes I'd forgotten that. But also So you could put the screw in at wherever the actual waterline is and declare its x distance short of the 20.7m reference point.
  12. AC36 CLASS RULE

    I had a go at making a rough idea of how scowish you can get within the limits. Bear in mind its been a long time since I tried to make a boatish shape, simple elliptical cross-section & bow profile (not properly tangented ) Blunt but proportionally kept relatively narrow by the bow max beams. I don't think you can really call that a scow bow, probably conventional bow more the go. Interesting that rather than min/max freeboard there is a 70m^3 min volume, I've got 1150mm canoe body to (dead flat) sheer which gives this 74m^3 volume (flat deck/stern & no cockpit) so in the right ballpark. Also no min LWL so you can do some interesting stuff with bow profiles.
  13. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Jesus christ lizard on a stick TNZ what are you streaming on a fucking 56k dialup modem? Gigabit fibre is like 130 NZ pesos a month ffs.
  14. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Yeah that rule seems to need some clarification to prevent mechanical gyro etc. Wouldn't it be easier & cheaper to just allow wands?
