Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,

    Been out of touch for a few years, may I ask, when did No8's become No4's?

    About the same time ancient history ceased to be Current Affairs.

    There's a thread about current uniform changes already running.

    Sarcasm noted. Also noted is that you've been a member since 2007 so you don't qualify for newbie allowances or staff to look for articles and generate links for you.

  5. Popped my head in on here again after many years away to see if there is a still a strong whiff of knob end running this site - well done fella, you've proved there is. See you again in six years......

  6. To answer the OP's original question, around 2003 IIRC.

  7. This really does sum up the total bellendedness of the site's moderators. No wonder many of the ex matelots with a couple of years service decide that there are better places for cracking a bit of banter etc.
    In the meantime this site has become the mecca for the " Joining the Navy for Dummies" brigade.
    ROMFT anyone?

    Ah, hallowed 'banter'. Is that the same 'banter' that revolves around slagging, intolerance, prejudice, relative positions on the totem pole, picking on the runt, last person into the conversation, first person into the conversation, 'dumb' question etc?

    On the above set of requirements, I thought I did rather well.

  9.'s about having a laugh with like minded individuals, without the petty arseiness of a pissed with power moderator.

  10. It makes you think when things are said on ROMFT that would be jumped on, deleted and the OP ridiculed on here!

    No moderator
    'powers' have been exercised. Well, other than the thread being moved to the Gash Barge - like you noticed- because Current Affairs it still ain't.

    The nippy, sarcastic, belittling 'banter' concept isn't difficult, unless you have hair gel in your eyes. This is not a serious thread.

  15. From day one we have had a "No Moderation" Policy on ROMFT and it has worked 100%.There have been NO Posts Moderated at all since we started.We have NO MODERATORS,and as such i feel that is why the site runs perfectly well due to that fact.The site members can ask for a post to be removed and if the general concensus is for removal then it it done so.ROMFT is run for the Members and by the Members.The 3 "Admin" staff we have,me,the POS and Mikh are there to make sure that the site doesnt run into Tech issues and to put up the daily Tickertape,and thats it!
