WNB Basic Rules 2017

Post  Lee606 on Wed Mar 17, 2010 9:51 pm

WNB League Basic Rules.............

FACEBOOK GROUP LINK
https://www.facebook.com/groups/WednesdayNightBangers/

By racing here at WNB, you agree to read and fully understand these following rules.

You also agree to abide by these rules at all times.both when racing WNB and when using chat and the forum.

Failure to follow the rules WILL lead to disciplinary action.

ALL Disciplinary action is made by the joint decisions of the DP team and by the Admin team where needed.
Their decisions are final, although you may, at their discretion, submit an appeal. The decision made regarding an appeal is the final action. No further correspondance will be entered into.


No Booking in to race means No Racing.
Simple as that, even if you send a skin in it wont be included unless you book in before 6pm on Wednesdays!!!

You must book yourself in to race.
It only takes a couple of seconds to do it, no ' multiple' bookings accepted.
BOOK IN ON THE WNB FACEBOOK GROUP (Link at the top of the page)
The booking in thread is also posted in the Online banger & SNR! facebook groups.

Only on a Team meeting will there be any deviation from this rule, the Team captain is the ONLY person that may book the whole team in, but all team drivers must show an interest in racing in the booking thread. As is usual, all drivers MUST be registered previously with TNB and not subject to a current ban from racing.

Skin Deadline 6pm.
We allow a bit of time past the deadline just in case, however that dosent mean you can take the mick and send a skin in at 7pm!
If its a problem, send it the day before as you do have all week to do it!

All skins to be sent to ....  wnbskins@gmail.com   WITH THE DRIVERS TEXT!
Attach your .tex file to the email and copy your drivers text into the message.That makes it much easier for the persoin making the skin pack.

One car,per person,per meeting,
The only exception is a defending champion at a title meeting.

No Modding
Modding car files will not be tolerated.
You MUST use the Online Bangers Mod ONLY. Its only a couple of downloads so should you be found guilty of modding it is an Instant LIFE Ban!

DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER DOWNLOADS OR CAR FILES TO THE MOD EXCEPT OFFICIAL ONES LOCATED ON THE ONLINE BANGERS

No Cheat Messages will be tolerated
THERES NO REASON FOR THEM! ( unless of course you are not using the correct mod OR you are using modified car files, in which case see the rule above! Its a lifetime ban from racing WNB!)
If you are producing cheat messages, you will be asked to sort them. Failure to do so will mean a load up and it will then be investigated further.
A cheat message will ONLY appear if you do not have the correct files installed. Now there really is no excuse!

If you are loaded at a meeting and then mess around when your asked to leave/re-enter chat or the servers after being asked to leave, your ban will rapidly increase.

You must display your own number on the roof fin
Even if its a replica skin it MUST display your own number on it.
Only exceptions are dedicated "Old skool" meetings
If its one of the "Bcars" that dont have a fin, you number must be clearly written on the car bodywork somewhere, preferably on the front doors.If you use masks to remove the roof fin your number must be on both sides of the car,no exceptions for standard meetings and team meetings.

Clutch starts.
Where clutch starts are used, you roll to a stop once you gain control of your car from the computer on the 1st lap.
Stop in the order that the computer starts you in, No jumping from the middle to the back etc etc.
The only drivers that are required to start from the back are current WNB champions. Thats the Unlimited world, 2 litre world, pre 70 World champs, & National Points champion No one else.

Racing Rules.......

Please Turn everything else not needed for racing on your computer OFF!
I cannot stress how important this is!!! We rely on private servers. Those servers have limitations. Those limitations dont allow you to leave chat on when racing, being on facebook or browsing saggy horny grannys whilst downloading illegal videos/dvds/music files !!!

Do not hold the server up.
A reasonable amount of time is always given but if you just sit there in the game lobby doing nothing you will get the boot.
Nobody likes to be held up.Think of others.

Warping
Warping is seriously fucking annoying,If your warping your car will be fine and everyone elses will be jumpy.If you are told you are warping then pull off the track and go and sort it out.do a disc clean up,empty the recycle bin and restart the computer.
If you still warp you will then be asked to leave.

Cutting the track
If you blatently cut the track to gain a advantage then expect to be docked 5 places.
Always rejoin the track as soon as reasonably possible.If you're heading for a tyre then we dont expect you to drive into it,Rejoin at the next gap along.

No oppo on straights
Unless stated otherwise by the Race Manager of the evening. This also includes reversing up the straights. You will be Loaded.

No Infielding
If you attack OFF the infield you will be warned/loaded/recieve a ban. If you spin/are pushed/knocked/spun onto the center, then rejoin the track in a manner as to not to cause a problem to anyone else.
You may hit ONTO the infield ONLY

Pinning, Blocking and sandbaging are now illegal!

Leaning isnt illegal, however its gay and the lowest form of driving. If your found to be/complained about for continiously driving like a prat, you may be warned for your first 'offence' and further action may be taken if it does not stop.

Sandbagging...Question......I recognise sandbagging is not allowed, according to the WNB rules, but no given definition of the term is to be found in the rules. So I am assuming you’ll be going by the standard ‘sandbagging in racing’ definition on Wikipedia.
Answer...The basic principle of "sandbagging" is "underperforming" slowing your car down whilst moving in the correct direction in order to do something underhand,regardless of what that underhand thing may turn out to be.you listed various different american versions such as deliberately avoiding cars which are specific to certain types of races but the basic principle is the same,Slowing down whilst travelling in the correct direction.Your car is underperforming because it has the ability to go faster but you choose not to and your target will catch up behind you a lot quicker.

Question...You might argue that holding back my car to stop or slow down other drivers is sandbagging, yet this is allowed on the bends in form of attacking on opposite. If attacking on opposite is classed as sandbagging, then I will accept a ban on the condition that anyone else who attacked on opposite (sandbagged) is also given a ban. I recognise attacking on opposite is allowed in your WNB rules, so I am not expecting to be punished for this.
Answer...No,On oppo its travelling in the opposite direction,oppo meaning opposite,Sandbagging is travelling in the correct direction but deliberately slower than race pace.

Team Meetings
Pinning/Blocking/Sandbagging are all PERMITTED.You can use any of these to stop other drivers,
Infielding and Oppo on the straights are NOT PERMITTED
All teams must have different colours,too many greens and blues have been contrasting in recent times.

Restarts...A rule is now in place,You may call for a restart with good reason,However if the leaders are on their 3rd lap no restart will take place,Its your responsibility to ensure you get to the game lobby in good time,

Entry to the big final meetings is determined thus... - Dependant on servers of course...
National Points (top 22) + defending champ + Possibly a LCQ from the B Final

We used to allow qualifying on the night but got sick of an outsider winning then never racing again the rest of the year! This way it rewards the people that stay loyal and race WNB regularly,However at the big meeting finals (If time and server space permits) the B Final will be run as a LCQ with the winner going on to that meetings championship.

So the top 22 in the National Points and defending champion will race the final + a LCQ from the B Final (13 laps)
If anyone in the top 22 fails to show then their place will go to the next person 23st in National Points points and so on,

The points system is:

Heats: 10,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
A Final : 20,16,14,12,10,8,6,4,2
B Final/Allcomers : 10,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
All A Finals will be run over 25 laps.
All B Finals/LCQ's will be run over 13 laps.

The booking in threads and MI's will give you all the information you need, if there is anything that you are not 100% sure of then ask!
All meetings are for National Points unless stated otherwise.

Start time is 8:00pm.
We want to race and fit in as many heats as we can! A maxium of 5 minutes over time will be allowed but If your still not ready.....Too bad!!! Be in chat for as early as possible! Dont turn up at 8:29 pm and ask for links to the skinpack and expect the meeting to be postponed for you. Think of everyone else.
Join the server when you are told to by the nights RM. If you are left behind in chat for whatever reason and you then join the server when the race is underway, it will not be ended for you so dont get the hump! Return to chat and WAIT for the next heats.

No talking during the race is permitted
The only time you speak is if you have a problem or need a restart OR you are asked by the server host to call go. Other than that, SHUT IT!
NO CALLING FOR HELP - INCLUDING TEAM MEETINGS
We dont want to read mid-race about your football team or how epic your nan is etc blah blah blah!
If someone acts like a Dick/drives badly, whatever, then wait until back in chat and then tell the RM or DP team members to deal with it. Dont moan during the race.
The only people that are occasionaly permitted to say anything are Admin/DP members if they spot something going on during a race that shouldnt be, calling positions for starts or generaly making announcements


Complaints
If you have a complaint about someone else from the meeting that you would like the DP team to investigate then you MUST save the replay,If you dont theres not much that can be done about it,
Send your replay to the WNB skin email address > wnbskins@gmail.com   by MIDNIGHT SUNDAY LATEST That gives the DP team time to address the problem before the next meeting.

Bans
All bans will be posted up on the forum by Monday night latest,That gives you time to see whats been going on and also allows you time to appeal should you find yourself with a ban,


Whos Who at WNB & Who to see if you have a problem......

Myself - Lee606 9 times out of 10 Im the Race Manager (RM) in charge of the meeting and Im the guy you will see giving out the IP addresses in chat and telling you where to go,I also do the booking in page,results & the general day to day running of the league but im on hand to deal with any general issues you have or help you may need.I make the skinpacks so any questions of that nature also,I will only accept messages in chat from fellow Admin,Please do not message me on race nights in chat,Im usually very busy with all them numbers,Sorting out whos going where and will more than likely ignore you so I can run the meeting in peace.

Wiz540 Admin - Hes usually very busy helping to run the meeting,However you can pass stuff on to him which will be forwarded onto the DP team and get you a reply back,Sometimes is also the Race Manager (RM) in charge of the meeting and Im the guy you will see giving out the IP addresses in chat and telling you where to go,Wiz also makes skinpacks so its usually best to check with either one of us if you have a issue with skins being sent in.

Craig224 Admin - Hes usually very busy helping to run the meeting,However you can pass stuff on to him which will be forwarded onto the DP team and get you a reply back,

FJ41 Admin - You can pass stuff on to him which will be forwarded onto the DP team and get you a reply back,Any questions on the night,Ask him,

Jools369 Admin - You can pass stuff on to him which will be forwarded onto the DP team and get you a reply back,Any questions on the night,Ask him,


There is also a DP team which as a group makes decisions on the running of the league,Everyone has an imput,It isnt just one person pulling the strings,They also make decisions on any complaints they recieve and use the rules above as a guideline they have set out to enforce them decisions,
The DP team is currently made up of 5 people with tons of online racing experience between them so you can be sure its a fair and safe way of doing things,



THE ABOVE RULES APPLY TO EVERYONE!

Cheers,Heres to a good 2017!
