      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. Universal Tracker

    Hi, Thank you for the kind messages, I just got right now. No, no universal tracker this year, as I said if you really think that's worthwhile the only stuff to do is to reach your favorites race organizers and ask for it. I've worked on the Chrome extension though, with blessing from VoR : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/vor-pro-mode/aokgkknapagmgagpkkehgagnmnddpgbc
  2. VG Tracker

    I won't answer everything here and this will be my only post in this thread, I am just gutted by the personnal war and public release of email conversations. End of the game, at least for me, I've closed my tracker. That's certainly better for the industry.
  3. Vendee Globe 2016?

    There is something for you guys, somewhere.
  4. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Seems like the decision was made without VG consent.
  5. Following activation on Facebook and Twitter, a first reaction from the French Federation (http://www.ffvoile.fr/ffv/web/actualites/actus_detail.asp?ID=3587) : which, translated :
  6. For French speaking people, I've gathered a small note to be shared, urging the Federation Française de Voile to open their mouth. http://volodiaja.net/Blog/fr/2016/01/scandale-autour-des-youth-worlds-en-malaisie/

    DTF's are different on IDEC tracker and Spindrift Tracker. To compare them, I calculate my own, which is different from the two others (and was sometimes buggy). I need to get better on that...

    Don't hesitate to MP me if you need my help.
  9. Jules Verne Trophy

    Sorry, I just gave the explanation on my twitter account. I have added 'unified' calculation for DTF and distance to the record leader (indicated as Delta). The problem is that Spindrift and Idec don't use the same calculation for this figures (which is a bit ridiculous), leading to "delta" very different. So I added a calculation in my script in order to have coherent figures between the two boats, which makes them comparable. The drawback from this is that this figures are also different from the two others.

    Sometimes Ghost and "Current" possition are at the same position as the Ghost is now calculated with the time from Spindrift. Use the Replay function to see it moving.
  11. Jules Verne Trophy

    Guys, I've been working on the replay function, it is now working. The IDEC "Ghost" is now calculated on the displayed position of "Spindrift" minus 2 hours, interpolated if non existing in the Idec data. Idec data is poor, so, when using replay always look at the Ghost... I will work on the numbers later this week, I hope to have something understable and coherent between Idec and Spindrift... Stay tuned !!

    Idec is Geovoile, but Spindrift is Addviso... For the website (which I find quite obnoxious btw, but according to what is meant to "the trend" I guess), but for the tracker as well you think ? Yep.
