    This badge comes with a very heavy heart. Because I've seen what negativity there is toward The Community and RARE... how people genuinely feel this community is being split apart and that they aren't treated justly according to their actions.

    I wish I can can feel happy for being given this title because I know I can't be everything that I want to be for RARE and SOT-F...

    But I can't. And it breaks my heart.

    Places that I once felt safe are no longer a sanctuary because malice.. bitterness.. anger.. paranoia have found themselves there too. I want things to be better. I want others to feel the enjoyment that I have for this game. I want strangers to feel that this is their home despite that families do have their disagreements and fights now and again.

    I want people to feel loved because I rarely feel that myself. I want people to feel secure and that trust is a common reality because that's hard to come by at work or in any other real life situation. I want people to feel free from that pit of despair, to know that they are able to climb out and feel the warmth of the sun on their face like a gentle kiss, because I don't want them to be stuck down here in the pit with me.

    Our family isn't as small as it once was. And it feels very broken.

    But it's still our family.

    I'm sorry that I can't make you feel better. I'm sorry that I can't take away your pain, your anger, your rejection, your betrayal...

    But I can give you all that I am. And all that God allows me to do to make you feel loved and respected and remembered when the World has turned its back on you.

    You are not alone. And never will be.

    @captnjaq you shouldnt feel sorry or saddened, indeed i have seen a few deserving names who understandably haven’t been happy with not getting the title, it will happen when a ‘reward’ is given for something but leaves out people the community feels hit that criteria. But it is what it is, i see names who got it who much deserve it, so i take solace in that and will just get on with it.

    @ve111a
    I figured you and @DrunkPunk138 would be in for sure.

    I’m a big ol’ meaniebear toward the dev team so I’m sure I’m under some ban on sight/zero tolerance title. 😏

    Aye, I'd love the opportunity but until and if that comes I'll just continue to help out where I can and try to stay positive! with or or without a cool badge lol.

    This is very weird to me, Ask @DrunkPunk138 I'm usually not like this but I found a game/community I enjoy and will do what I can. I find it a lot nicer and more enjoyable in like being like how I am not vs how I was. well.... unless I play overwatch

    @khaleesibot this is really cool, I’m just getting on the forums but I’ve logged a lot of hours, 38, 45, 32.

    But I’m loving the game and am trying to get into the community more!

    @knightx13 said in Introducing the Boatswains:

    Correct, as far as group hierarchy goes on the forums, the Deckhand title/group supersedes the Boatswain title/group, so it only displays the highest tier. The other titles have different hierarchies, and is why they can be displayed at the same time.

    Told my Dad this weekend I was being made a Boatswain and then about the Deckhands who moderate (as I have no jurisdiction or power here!) and he chuckled (ex Merchant Navy) that "they don't know much about ship hierarchy then!"
    So apparently you guys should have the title (but same power as now) the Boatswain and we the Deckhands, as Boatswain is a boss of Deckhands!

  • 4

    @sshteeve Shhhhhh it's a secret coup ;)

  • 3

    @sshteeve Yeah, according to traditional naval heirarchy that would be the case, but we do things backwards here...

    After all, everyone can be a captain of their own ship, but there are only a few Deckhands in all the Sea of Thieves.

    Congrats on being made a Boatswain though.
