      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

    You have to click it twice, click it to make it green with a question mark, then again to actually add them
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Went too far north in the night, into light breeze...was 31st in the World at one point!
  3. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    I think the rankings are calculated by DTF or Distance to the next waypoint, they gybed earlier and are more Westwards as a result are first. For my money, I still fancy Dongfeng and MAPFRE
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Going well so far. Reckon there'll be a bit of a restart at Gibraltar anyway. I'm assuming the bought options only last for this leg?
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    For those of use who want to use Zezo, does anyone know how to see your Lat/Long on the game screen? Or do we have to just take a guess and put that into Zezo?
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    And we're off!!! Anyone know how to see your co-ords on the map? My boat;s called Guest 33249 for some reason too
  7. VOR 2017-18

    Want to expand on that statement?
  8. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    It's that time again chaps. Goodbye to sleep
  9. J70, cheating and pros

    Amazing- to jog my memory, what was the final outcome for Mr. Greenwald's blatant cheating a few years back?
  10. VOR 2017-18

    I agree with you- but one order of magnitude? I struggle to believe Conrad had ten times the generating power on board his boat. Twice maybe.
  11. The Bridge: ultims vs Queen Mary 2

    I can imagine IDEC hates these light conditions
  12. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Seb is an absolutely class act- I really enjoyed his race, and that speech at the end demonstrates it perfectly. Wonder if FaceOcean will finally be put into retirement or does she have one more adventure left in her?
  13. Vendee Globe 2016?

    "She was fastest on the fleet" is not as silly as it sounds in the breeze band this race was. I hope the Dutchman donors it to someone young, keen, talented but has no money who can prove exactly that...It has after all still got the shrink-wrap on it after this cruise. What do you mean by that Jack? Is No Way Back optimised for different breeze than the other foilers?
  14. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Seb doing 15 knots over the ground now- don't think I ever saw Pieter hit that! He's making the old girl fly at the moment
