      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.

    Great! I’m always reading about cities that were made great by “variant options”!

    "Surfers and paddlers are seen catching waves above the waterline with a paddle in hand to (...) propel themselves forward". Insightful journalism once again from The Herald.

    Sounds like a midlife crisis? You’re still my three year old’s favourite avatar. “STINGRAY!”

    Ok, let's get the Resource Consent for 2024 lodged. We'll need more bases due to the increase in competitors (14) so we need to clear the tank farm...now.

    I’m not against people living in Wynyard Quarter. Without people living there it’ll be dead after 5:30 and Panuku can’t do everything for free! There’s gotta be a return somewhere. Also, if you can show me an apartment building (or any building) on a piece of land that’ll attract the sort of premium that Wynyard Quarter will, and it still has in grade parking, it be interested to see it!!

    It looks like the legacy mode removes the sheds entirely. I suspect that means the sheds will end up being similar tent structures as before. No-one will go to the expense/time to build more permanent structures. This is Mollers trying to make some buildings out of a project that doesn't need any. My guess is that the legacy mode is suggesting a stage/sound shell and market structures, both which would be a good addition to the viaduct.

    Sailing towards a permanent base for Team NZ Team New Zealand's hopes of a permanent base on Auckland's Hobson Wharf hinge on a Government report due out at the end of the month.

    I disagree. Council SHOULD build the bases as long as 1) they have an alternative use inbetween cups and 2) When we lose the cup and win it back again, they’re still there.
