      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. Hi Harry!! Tyler had great advice. I'd like to add one other point when you become solid (especially with the skip) and that is at the start. The reality is most really respected bowmen call the start for the skip. When he trusts you he will follow not your voice commands but your hand signals. Before the race you should chat it up with the skip and the tact man and get in tune with their starts options. I have found that the North (sails) books on stragity & tactics are awesome. All 3 of you guys should be in tune with stragity, tactics & nomenclature. The bowman has the cat birds seat on other boats, the line and the time (get a good watch). Great Luck...it's the most exciting spot on the boat....
