      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.

Two-boat bases needed?

Recommended Posts

No matter which base layout is selected in AKL, space will be at a premium. So, considering that two-boat testing won't be allowed (other than for the Defender), I was wondering whether there really is a need for storing both team boats on the dry - if it's a marginal opportunity, Boat 1 could be kept floating somewhere else in the basin. 

Also, will teams be paying rent for the bases, and any idea how much that would be?

The Protocol change from Hell? Lol  at http://www.sail-world.com/USA/Americas-Cup---Space-tight-in-Auckland-Cup-base-options/158775?source=google

When questioned about where an overflow of teams might have to go, Rod Marler, design and place director for Panuku, the city’s regeneration agency, said: “We’d have to find another location for them; or reduce the number of teams who can build two boats.”

Good luck with that. Just another bureaucrat talking without first removing his head from his rectum.
