Hi again everyone, For quite a while now, we've been talking about revising our terms and rules as part of an effort to make them simpler, more effective, and easier to understand. I'm happy to announce we're at the tail end of this effort and we're ready to share the new revision with the community for feedback. You may find the latest revision at https://piratesforums.co/help/terms-new/ It is our goal to put the new terms into effect on August 1st. The new terms and rules should better cater to a community which has grown and matured over the years. One such example of this is the upcoming NSFW system. This system will allow people to opt-in to posting and viewing more mature content (including turning off our language censors). However, it should be noted that certain content and excessive swearing will still be disallowed. We think this is a compromise which gives members a choice on what they want to see while still encouraging a positive and upbeat atmosphere. We are also working on a section that will outline our moderation policies and the consequences for rule violations, which we hope will help provide better transparency and accountability for our moderation decisions. Keep an eye out for this in the coming weeks! If there are any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the new rules, just reply to this thread and let us know!
