May Community Update

May Community Update -

Flying Labs Software's Pirates of the Burning Sea has updated their website with a new Dev Log. This one serves as a COmmunity Update for hte month of May. As usual, it's too long to post here, so follow the link below to read it all!


May's Community Update!
It's been awhile since I've had a chance to do a proper update, and so I've decided to put the ever-present, ever-growing to-do list on hold, and take a moment to share a little bit about what's going on in my neck of the woods.

User Content Changes
As you know, we've spent the last few weeks hammering out the details for a new User Content resource- you've no doubt had a chance to check out the Devlog written by Augustus that explains some of the decisions we made. (Haven't read it yet? Check it out by clicking here.) While his Devlog shares just about everything you need to know about the new changes, I do want to extend a hearty thanks to the community for their patience, with special recognition due the Steering Committee, for their work filling in the blanks while the pieces came together on our end.

Your contributions to this project are truly appreciated, bravo!

Everything Old is New Again?
As Augustus notes in his most recent Devlog, the new and improved User Content processes also introduces higher design standards for UC submissions. These new artistic standards make it imperative that we revisit any flags and sails that were approved once upon a time, understanding that many of those designs wouldn't pass muster with the new quality guidelines.

The question we have now is this: How do we revisit all of these submissions in a way that causes the least possible pain for our community? Would releasing 50 a week be reasonable? How about 100 a week? Or, would you prefer we just tear the band-aid off all at once, and dump the entire lot of 1,633 UC submissions that were approved under the old guidelines, and let you sort through them as you can?

So which would you prefer? Your participation in the poll attached to this thread will help determine the method we use to revisit UC submissions of yore. On Monday, May 28th, we will review the poll results. Given your feedback, we will move forward with the most popular choice, to be implemented by Friday, June 2nd.

So cast your vote, and let us know what you think, by visiting this link.
