      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

    I've occasionally seem Mom go down to 141...not for long though Programmed a gybe for this evening (UK/Ireland time), will see how I've came out on those further south then
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Took one risk already this leg that didn't pay, so going to hedge my bets and stay North. Also I reckon my crew are too drunk at this stage to chance two gybes.
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Getting nervy about the next few days now, we've made our bed, all we can do now is lie in it.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm diving south now, sailing as fast as possible. Should be like this until the horn
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Hanging in just behind the leaders for once. Going to gybe West in a few hours. Didn't think it was worth it, but with the forecast now we're looking at far more breeze and a bit more favourable an angle - make a great slingshot in to the Souther ocean
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Around the headland, got programmed courses to bear away overnight, auto sails....to the pub!!
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    You're better off ignoring th rankings until near the finish, they aren't very accurate until then...unless those people's boats have wheels, they're not getting anywhere fast
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Getting back into the race, think it's going to be pretty much a procession until we're about 1/2 down the Coast of NZ...already feel myself being sucked back into the game god dammit. Bought all options for this leg too
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Rule69 is back in the game. But christ, the time zone isn't being good to me on this St. Patrick's day.
  10. Old One Ton

    I punk't has a very interesting history IIRC
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Very glad that one is over. Is it just me or there no prize credits in this leg?
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Should finish tonight. Happy enough to be where I am, 2500th or so, especially since I decided to spend the first 8 hours or so of the leg on the bricks just outside Melbourne. Easily the most frustrating leg so far, although I reckon the next one could be as bad.
  13. What is it?

  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm behind Tessa by a while, and I can see the door slowly slamming shut.
  15. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Back moving at 8 knots. Going Rhumb line hasn't hurt me as much as I thought it would.
