While it may IRK you, the proposal at the head of this thread is:Eliminate the 13/13 rule! I was clear that I want to retain the rule for the reasons given... Whether you like my response or not, my view is that it will help grow the series out here.
Chuck, once again, you havent read what I wrote. This isnt BMWCCA 13/13 or PCA 13/13. Have you READ the GTS 13/13 blurb???
I can understand if you want to retain a rule similar to BMWCCA 13/13, and a rule similar to that would help grow the series out there, but therein lies the problem. The current GTS Modified 13/13 is nowhere NEAR that. Hence the call to eliminate it since it duplicates what NASA already has.
If your goal is to have it be more like BMWCCA's 13/13, then your post should reflect that you want to clarify the current GTS 13/13. Otherwise, just saying "KEEP IT" doesnt do anything at all. Keeping what? a redundant set of penalties that mirror the NASA CCRs at best?
Seriously, everyone who keeps saying "KEEP IT", PLEASE just take 5 min. out of your time to read the rules. Then, come back and tell me you want to keep it. If you still say keep it, then that pretty much is the same as eliminating it based on the fact that similar penalties exist in the current NASA CCRs.
Which is my reasoning for eliminating it. As shown in this thread, it makes people assume it is the same 13/13 as BMW/PCA and then have certain expectations of such. It ISNT the same. If we wish to make it similar but a more lenient version, then it needs to be clarified.
