      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.

    excellent video as always, Blur. Great job. Does your helm massively load up when you are on the cusp of applying the power? Jem

  12. newbie bowman tips

    Move to the back of the boat as fast as you can, more money to be made watching the hard workers.... As for going out on the pole, you shouldnt have to.... Be organised! indeed. given that this was 2006, there should be fresh meat up the pointy end by now... J

    Been following that thread too, Misthos. Sometimes there is yelling from the back of the boat. It sometimes consists of "What's going on up there?", or some such nonsense while you are up to your chest in water on the leeward side trying to unfuck something. If you feel you have to respond, here are a couple that are kinda fun: Sarcastically -- "Gee whiz, I'm not really sure, why don't you guys come on up and take a look". or "I'm fucking this chicken, you guys just sit back and watch the feathers fly." RD Since I am an apprentice bowman and just completed this whole thread, I found this advice invaluable. I can't wait to wear my harness while fucking the owners daughter, wife, sister and secretary. Sounds like you guys and few gals are crazy mofo's. Should be a good summer! how was your summer L8R?
