Introducing the Boatswains

    @khaleesibot Do you know if the Boatswains will get any fancy ingame cosmetics to show off that they are a member of an elite team of do gooders?

    It would be neat to have sails that people recognize as someone (mostly) trustworthy and approachable. But also that icon would make for a sweet tattoo set.

    @m1sterpunch Ahoy matey!

    It doesn't look like we will be getting anything specific in game cosmetics or sails... and I'm not sure I would like it... maybe a title would be good though.

    This is a great idea to identify those members who are just there to mess around compared to those that genuinely care about the game. Well done Deckhands!

    I'm against any kind of cosmetic reward tbh. Frankly this role should be something that all community members strive to reach.

    I agree... Being a Boatswain on the forums is one thing, but adding an extra in-game cosmetic would be kinda weird, imo..

    The way most people are in-game doesn't reflect on the REAL person behind the screen..
    The title on the forum is a reward in itself, imo.

    and again.. congratulations to all that became boatswains... you are making the forums a better place :D

    there will always be people who will complain and it's nice to see that someone will stand with those who are here to have a good time!

    Why thank you Kat :D!

    I feel very lucky to have been chosen to be part of the Boatswains. This game means a lot to me and it feels good to be recognized for the efforts and energy I've been putting into creating positive bonds between the communities.

    I'm happy to see so many of my Fortune Unionmates in this group too!

    Three cheers for the @Boatswain !

    The pay is awful, we never get shore leave and they make us eat pins!

    We get a nice badge though.

    Well...I'm the first to admit I sail through the forums way too much over the course of an average day. Usually it starts with my morning grog...erm...I mean morning coffee.

    It also seems I'm slightly remiss about checking the chat window. Sooo....if I anyone has PMed me and I have not responded in say...2 months...feel free to toss a second cannonball across my bow ;-)

    That having been said...I am honored to have been added to the rolls of the Boatswains :-D

    @personalc0ffee thanks shipmate!

    Rum, Grog, Coffee...hey it's all good when sailing the forums. Though some of the threads need more Rum than Coffee :-D

    @personalc0ffee ...I hear ya matey. I've been following more than one of those threads as well the last few days...insert sigh here.

    @personalc0ffee uh...where be it? ;-)

    I got the super-secret handshake and all...just don't know where the door is. Maybe a PM with the super-secret-details?

    @personalc0ffee appreciate it matey...with all my training you'd think I could have found that door by now. Guess I need to lay off the rum! Back on the trail ;-)

    @drbullhammer
    I'm not shaming anyone m8!
    I am just expressing my disapproval of the contradiction that Khaleesi put - 'Fairminded but respectful of the Pirate Code and Forum Rules'
    How can you be fairminded & respectful of the rules if you've had a ban for being abusive & argumentative??
    No offence intended!

    Funny what ended up happening here to said person lol........ its almost like there was a needless victim in it all.

    Go ahead and lock the thread for the terrible crime of necroing a post but when i saw logansdad still in the top 10 posters it reminded me of all the wasted time arguing on the forum with certain people instead of rare just getting our free ideas from our free testing and either making them or not.

    Thanks for getting the game to where it is now and listening to the right people even if it took a little bit.
