      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.

I bet you get great service from them in the future! Even a six pack from time to time goes a long way in keeping the troops happy on the loft floor, and they won't forget that the next time your sails come in.

 

I would also bet you folks who believe saying thanks to your sail makers, riggers, jigs, etc is above what you owe anyone will continue to get basic levels of service from them. It doesn't take a phd in psychology to understand this. If you appreciate anyone providing a service for you (be it a sail maker, a mechanic changing the oil in your car, the person making your coffee at Starbucks, building your team sandwiches at subway, etc...) they are more likely to remember you as one of the good ones, and will be more willing to go out of their way to help you in the future. I'm not saying take the Starbucks girls a six rack, I'm sure they would rather a couple bucks in the tip jar. But you should get the point. I used to get $20 best buy gift cards for the morning Starbucks girls, and the lunch time subway team, as an Xmas gift, and that went a LONG way.

I know anarchists who pay for sail repair/work with racks of beer and bottles of rum. Seems to get them good, expeditious, service.

... the best tip I could ever hope for is continued patronage. That is as big of a "thank you" that truly matters.

Money...

On time

It's really that fucking easy...

 

Sure. If my sail was on time. If the rigger was on time. I don't understand why this particular industry thinks habitual lateness is acceptable. Prompt service, prompt payment.

I steer business to someone who does a good job, or even does the job on time and on budget.

 

They may not mention my name when they call the "Jimmy" (whatever TF that is) but I am satisfied that I am doing well by them and don't need the recognition.
