      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.

The people in the foiling tractor T-shirt are quite lively.

On the back of the shirt is a tribute to Massey Fergusson

remember it this way

 

australia is big and has more people

 

so it gets a big star and more little stars with more points

 

nz is more socialist

 

so it gets communist red stars, and only 4 of them, with little white outlines, so they stand out

...calling NZ's boat a "tractor" was coined by KooTooki, and that it was a stupid ass post, trying to sound academic, and in response to an entirely fabricated argument by an even worse local SF poster. Like anyone with the least bit of a smidgeon of a brain ever though New Zealand's boat looked slow.

Technically the answer is closer to yes than no. The monarch of both Oz and NZ is the same person who is the monarch of the UK. So the authority to rule of all three governments is rooted in the same person. Not just Oz and NZ of course. Canada, Fiji, Granada, Jamaica, and another 9 nations. Interestingly, if the UK were to become a republic, this would not affect (now ex) UK monarch's position as head of state of the rest of these Commonwealth countries.

 

The main reason the flags are so alike is that we both have a great view of the Southern skies.

Dear All,

 

Hi.

 

It s my first post on this forum, and as far as I understand, this subject is about printing Red Tractor T-Shirt ?

 

I would like to know how to do it: just download the .jpg & find a t-shirt boutique which can do that ?

 

My Best Regards to the Sailing Anarchy community

 

Yours sincerely

I just grabbed the pics off a google search but even so, full image is 2300 x 1531 pixels which should be plenty of resolution to print an image on a T-shirt.

 

Firstly: Don't just right click and save the image in this thread as this is effectively a thumbnail. Instead, click on it once to get a larger preview, then right click and download. If this too has been down sized go to the direct link below.

 

Second Option: Go to the direct Flicker link and download orignal resolution file here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/101668485@N04/9730669329/sizes/o/in/photostream/

One of the original Red Tractors:

 

Used by Sir Ed to get to the South Pole.

 

He was only meant to go halfway setting up supply depots for Fuchs, (using snowcats), coming from the other side on the ist crossing on the Antarctica but keep going and reach the pole before Fuchs.post-23753-0-10458100-1379131225.jpgpost-23753-0-61217500-1379131256_thumb.jpgpost-23753-0-29766300-1379131283.jpgpost-23753-0-63031100-1379131308.jpg

Not sure if I prefer the original unadulterated classic, or one of the modded versions :unsure:

 

Kiwi in drivers seat, pie warmer on the drawer bar facing the viewer, and feather duster with handle as bowsprit?

Hi

 

Thank you Burbanite thank you Webfish,

 

AFAIK he Red Tractor has an Aussie mecanician trimming the throttle,

 

May be it was the kind purpose of the extra big star on the flag ?

 

A little A-Cat class symbol somewhere could be a fair reminder of this Aussie talent

 

or try to find the logo of the Bendigo's sailing Club for the same reason

 

Just a question to Snaerk, do you write in Turkish, Finnish, or Hungarian ?

 

Regards

That is actually the front and back views. I had no idea what I was getting, I read the post by Roota, called the shop in SF and asked them to send me one overnight. It is now packed in my luggage on its way with me to the race at the Circuit Of The Americas (I like the segue) in Austin, TX this weekend.

 

I'll miss the races live today but will be catching up later. Off to LAX...
