      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

    Tessa94 looking unbeatable now, they are in stronger winds atm then most other boats.
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yeah just found that, but sceen often jams and I can’t pull map to HK or reset start points etc, oh for the PC!
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I’m using a smart phone, my PC is down, so no right click.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Every time I set a start point west of Borneo (where Aspiln is) on Zezo all I get is a straight red line to HK, what is going on?
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Aspiln is heading for a small low pressure system that may just be enough to sling them to a win, time will tell.
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    So I did a calc’ from SKOVSER to the following contenders using DTF, SKOVSER was at 1658nm, Iona29 at 2276 (618 behind), Tessa94 at 2511 (854 behind), and Magool at 2617 (959 behind). Atm the leader is still doing 20 plus knts while all the others are still in single figures. It’s going close!
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Going by their DTF I wouldn’t rule out the far west group, it would seem that their ration of 4kt wind has got a lot smaller of late.
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    When I set a zezo course from the Sunda Strait (my guess where Thistle is) I can’t get a course to HK, wtf!
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Looks like Thistle will go through the Sunda Straits and miss most of the doldrums, in stealth mode now, but that is where they were aiming.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    It’s looking more and more likely that rhe WA boats will take out this leg. I can’t believe how wide rhe doldrums are atm around the Solomons, fast forward 7 days and YM’s group would be in 17kts not 4kts!
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    AzzzA try adding KLM2235 to your friends list.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    No game waypoints as such, unless tou mean measuring points for your current position. I am aiming for a pass between San Cristobal and Malaita islands as I expect YM is as well. I’d have been on YM’s hip now if I hadn’t stuffed up and lost 2 plus hours last Wednesday.
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Snow? What’s that? It’s going to be 45c (113f) here today!
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    WA group has finally turned NW, although Thistle is off with the fairies atm. 7 days ahead is looking good for them.
  15. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I've managed to gain back about 1000+ places after yesterday's debacle when I got turned 180 degrees and basically stopped for a few hours when using my iPhone to navigate, Atm my PC internet coverage is woeful, (thank you Telstra), so I'm forced onto the phone most of the time.
