      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

    Well, I need sleep, I've still not woken up during this race for a single check/adjustment. I'm off to sleep now, hopeful that 110deg TWA will still be as wonderful in the morning as it is now. Sweet dreams everyone!

    Hmmmm.... thanks for the thought, but seems unlikely (unbelievable)
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Well the new forecast seems to have less backing in the wind, so suddenly the position to the north of the SA fleet doesn’t look as bad as it was a few hours ago.

    Well, I woke up in 84th, so perhaps I didn't screw things up totally. Still 4Nm directly behind Stu.

    I am strangely nervous. I've almost got into the top 100 and I've just programmed in 4 course changes over the next 8 hrs while I sleep, including the crucial gybe. Is this a good idea? Probably not, we'll see the answer tomorrow morning. Good night.

    Yes, VR will buy them back at the end of the race and you can use the credits towards the next leg. You also get credits for your placing. I think Mom dealt with it up thread near the end of Leg 1. Be careful with Miss 69, she'll have you if she finds you in a vulnerable position.....

    Thanks for the translation Laurent, you continue to be a shining star.
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Hello, here are the 01:00UTC rankings. I've added in the places which were taken slightly later, and it shows that many people are so close that a few minutes variation makes a difference of several places. It's a bit of a drag race at the front, but setting up for the gybe and the reach to the beer has the potential to change a lot of positions. I think if I was RQ-Naos I would be playing it differently - get between the main group and the finish. He has lost a lot of miles in the last 24hrs. We will see.......

    Because you are busily heading towards that area of absolutely no wind?

    @mkgsailor if I drop Walkaround and add MikeVentura, you could drop prowler11 and add Malamute. Would that work?

    Hello, Here are the 01:00UTC rankings with Overall Places added for the first few racers. Walkaround has gone from 57Nm in front to 242Nm behind in 24 hrs! My routing is saying 5days to Cape Town - I'm looking forward to a thirst quenching ale or two.

    No he is visible and roughly where you would expect him to be...... in the lead
  15. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Walk around and Ozzy are tumbling fast at 16th and 21st in my rankings which is likely to put them 29th and 37th overall in the SA lists. They had a long run of glory, but now it the turn of the west.
