      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

    Noon start for me!
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Rainbow Spirit II, 4372nd 20d,7h,39m,02sec., dist 6630.7nm. I kind of followed Zezo for about half the leg, then went off to the east and down the middle, along with Gybe Turkey. Thanks for the company GT, you got me by a few minutes in the end. I used waypoints to finish as it was about 1am local time for me. I rarely got up during the night, and just let the boat have its head during those times. Next leg is looong...
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Bleeding places now, as I drift in from the north towards Cape Reinga. At least it looks like a nice reach down the east coast to Auckland for the finish.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    So near yet so far, down to 1300th place, but coming in from due north, all we have into the finish is crap light winds, grrrrr.
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    $80 for repairs and the PC is back online, so much easier to play on the PC.
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    What’s with rhe app update? I can’t get past it and onto the game! This is crazy, and as my PC monitor won’t lock onto the computer I’m stuck with playing on the phone. OK, working now, dosen’t look any differnt to me.
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I’m still stuck in 4kts!
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Shockwave II just popped up in a good spot, unfortunately in front of me!
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Crap winds ahead once clear of the Solomons, don’t despair just yet YM.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Here I was going along to the SW of most of the 'hot shots" gaining places, (down into the 600s) go to sleep (overnight here in OZ) following Zezo, wake up, and all of a sudden, I've been mugged by them as they shot down to the SW and swamped me! grrrrrrr!
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Perhaps we could head out to the east and meet Your Mom coming down from the north
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    West of the rhumbline is exactly where Zezo wants me to go.
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I have 'delay no more' in 4910th place, at 89 degrees port, wind at 18.3kt, spd 18.2kt, with 3342nm to finish.
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Zezo doesn't always work for me in Chrome, so I have to use Firefox, and yes there is a difference to the routing, especially towards Auckland.
  15. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Keep a lookout for all those light blue areas, lots of hidden islands lurk there. A few days ago I was in the 48000s, today it looks like I'll go sub 2000!
