    I guess I'll start. I crew foredeck on a C&C 99 on a lake in the Southeast US. I have only been sailing for a couple years and only for maybe a year semi seriously.

    I have only done local regattas on the lake, nothing that I've had to travel for or anything that big though. I would love to work towards crewing on larger/more experienced boats in larger regattas/higher wind conditions.

  4. Are there any sailors on here?

    So if there are any sailors or prespective sailors on here some questions. What region do you sail in? Captain or crew (I guess also own or crew)? What kind of boat? What level do you sail at?...

    This is a lot of questions I know, but I've gotten into sailing more and more over the last few years and I've found it's one of the main things that's kept me sane throughout the pandemic.

    I have been a bit of a sporadic contributor to the site, but I will say that some communities really would benefit from more posts per day. For example ~news averages 2 posts and 18 comments a day, there are way more than two things around the world that are newsworthy in a day. Now the amount of conversation that these posts bring really depends on how popular or "take worthy" the subject is in general.

    For example I posted a couple days ago about palm oil labor abuses in Malaysia. While I think that the article was interesting and an important topic to know something about there wasn't much discussion to be had because what could you say? "Thats horrible"? "omg i never knew"? Those don't add anything and are below the effort level that is expected from the comments sections here.

    I think that if you see something that could be newsworthy its reasonable to post as many links as you feel like, but I totally get what you mean when it comes to places like ~games.game_design. If one person was posting 2 topics a day with a comment on each it would over triple the total contributions to the tilde, which would just feel like talking to oneself.

    I think these go hand in hand. There's a perfect storm that has really made it so that he may even be able to "win" the election by staying in legal/grey areas. Through the Bush v Gore precedent and the probable 6-3 SC divide I could see it.

    Also if you look at the 538 Snake Chart a lot of the tipping point states have Republican controlled legislatures that could help to suppress concerns about the vote.

    As much as I agree, I think the reason it's age restricted is that there's footage of someone being burned to death about halfway though.
