      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

Anyone got a weather forecast ?

 

There will be wind.

 

Varying from 0-100 knots.

 

There will be current. Going either N, S, E and or W.

 

There shouldn't be anything relating to my image. But who knows.

Brilliant, couldn't agree more!!

 

The media coverage really is a slap in the face to the other 99% of crews who battle it out each year to get down to Hobart!

 

I guess the average Aussie just wants to see the big "fast" boats!

Hey guys,

 

Looking at heading down to Hobart again (I live in Tassie anyway) and doing some reporting again.

 

Last year was fairly last minute, well actually I had no idea I was going to do it but after the success of the thread I'm going down a bit more organised.

 

Was going to try to get a dinghy but I think it will be better from the shore and I will have a laptop with internet and my own binos this time!!

 

Unfortunately the chances of another finish like that are fairly slim but I'll be there anyway.

Apparently. New Rudder in a couple of weeks.

 

Innovative Composites (formerly Sydney yachts) working frantically on the replacment, should be ready to go in late next week in time for LI-BB race. Very disappointing result for us, given that at the 100nm mark, we were on the pace (for a little yacht). I wonder how many more tests & ordeals we must endure before we start in the big one! :o

Who would have thought hey, an article about WOXI being a potential record breaker for this years race.

http://news.theage.c...1127-2a4tj.html

Not only that, apparently Loki is going to win it on Corrected Time again, Double WOW!!. That journalist is a fucking genius, firstly, to get the article published with his staggering foresight and secondly, to get it published even BEFORE Rob Mundle's utterances hit the press. Can't wait for Stripeys contribution either.

Well there you go; I guess it just wouldn't be a Hobart without a Wharro "Fund Raising Scheme" :rolleyes:

Anyone got a heads up on the Sunfish migratory projections for this summer?

The sunfish are meeting with the sharks and penguins to work out the race strategy and wather conditions.

Don't be too harsh:

Money raised will be donated to the CYCA Sydney Hobart Yacht Race Safety of Life at Sea Trusts
