Forum Rules Change

Forum Rules Change - MMORPG.com

Flying Labs has posted an addendum to their Pirates of the Burning Sea Forum Rules. As part of the game focuses on conflict between several real world nations, several forums have been opened to colorful comments about these nations for the purpose of role-playing.

With community members from all walks of life and a fan base that spans the globe, the Pirates of the Burning Sea community is the very definition of diverse. While we firmly believe that our diversity is one of our biggest strengths, it has also been a source of some of our community's greatest friction.

Of course, we've always expected our forum members to not only respect that diversity, but to help us maintain and support it by avoiding bigoted diatribes and unwarranted attacks on individuals based solely on their geographic location or ethnic origins.

These expectations get especially tricky when you consider that fact that a crucial aspect of Pirates of the Burning Sea revolves around the friction between real nations, namely the British, Spanish and French.

So to help clarify our expectations, I'm adding the following to our forum rules:

Players are encouraged to participate and contribute to the conflicts between nations as it occurs in the context of Pirates of the Burning Sea game play. That is to say, posts that are made to deride, cajole or taunt enemy nations can be acceptable, so long as it is made clear that the tirade in question is a role-play device, and (this is the important part) is posted in the appropriate forum location.

Here's a handy list of places on our forums where you are welcome to rattle your digital sabers: Societies and National Dialogue The Salty Sea Dog Inn
