      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.

    Hi Jack did the dump get fixed or not?
  4. blooper time!

    Hell Yes fly what you got. As a the old ior girls get rolling it's time to look up at the main. Those skinny things want to take you for a ride when the top batten is ahead of the beam. The top of the main will vector the forces to weather inducing a weather roll. Vang it on or sheet the main in to stop the roll induced by the under trimmed main. Aha yes the tall boy. Tack follows the pole just forward of it at all times. A bow mans job. Theory was bloopers had more area then the mains. So get the main out the way. Reef it or take it down. Just sheet the main way in to fill the blooper. then let the main out. Want to get your A Boat Game going learn the Lazy Daisy Jibe. Blooper flags sheet off / jibes out side the full chute as the chute jibes. Never blown up a blooper? Just put it up let n God take it down.

    Life at the top of the game is interesting,LOL. No grounding. Boat just stops, just points 000.00 True. Game controls all work, all read outs work as if the boats moving and Are adjustable. SOG is still there and changes with heading, the boat just can’t go further. In 3D the boat looks the same as if it’s moving lat and long do not change. As for east or west heading just a short time will add up fast going around the globe. I’m having a difficult time hitting the bearing straights... with no track line extending below the black out at times. Bugs? at places the boat got a little further north. .13min. There is no grounding or message. I got the feeling the vworld ends, no code. I was going down maybe I just do laps way up there. Strangest thing is seeing over the top in 3D and from 85 N, 177 W to 30 S, 13 E through land. I’m headed true north and see Miss Magic Carpet at 30S as if she’s at the North Pole. Is it possible if this vworld is flat??? There is no dirt in 3 D is there. Me Rongo SA

    Me Rongo On a different note...game ends at 89 N 30’ 13” .I can not see the boat on the game board it's only visible in 3D. You can go east or west just not up. The world has no ice and a has a end line up there, FLAT???? 73752 and dropping Me Rongo Rekohu 4949 finish 21 days 21 hrs 56 min 19 sec. just a 5000 player I guess
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Me Rongo SA is at 85N off the game board. But still there in 3D. Yet I can see boats at 32S Gonna Giter in 3D.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Na he’s got a 4th mode drive setup. I just did not go east enough
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Is there a driftfest coming at the end??
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Did you find the Rum? What boat are you racing in the Volvo? I’m also stuck 12 hrs off the pace to Mommy. You should be in my area. If so, 2 boats sail faster than 1. Want a race?
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Next tried again. Got off. Bounced back AGAIN! Closed the game reloaded it and got off. What a pain I was thinking about waiting the next Hi Tide... What is the moving tan and white stuff.
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    This was fun NOT! Run aground AGAIN. Then the rubber band affect started. Boat was see through at first. Tried to get off bounced back.
