She doesn't need permission to post names on the forums if there aren't any logs or personal information associated with them. It's the game's forums, after all. Your attempt has been interrupted from success.

Chat logs, PMs and other communication methods without the express posted permission of all participants


Thats directly from the rule list.

Now, I'm not against/with anyone, but can you explain to me how that is a "Chat log", "PM", and/or "other communication method"?

Edit:

And if anyone else doesnt notice it, I kind of appreciate having a few straighters. Why? Well they're not 100% lets just say. Sure they take up a slot on your boat, but you probably wont get past 60, so having the extra few straighters jump along, will be fine as they DO manage to soak up a little margin of damage early on in the battle.

Useless meatshields is what they are to me. They shield you without even trying.

Though of course, someone competent is always better than a useless meatshield.

The rule is to prevent a hesaid/she said kind of thing afaik. Same applies to screenshots of chatlogs. The spirit of the rule can be applied to any ingame screenshot. Just imagine you have to evacuate, thus str8line and I post the screenshot - sounds unfair to me...

Filtering out possible straightliners while jobbing will result in an even longer period of staring at your computer and listening to people who REALLY WANNA GO TO THE FLOTTTTT SMH LP PLS.

Re: Show us the Straightliners
I think the point is to start a list of players to watch out for/not job. That may prove useful for the frequent Atlantis navers that do read the forums. News of being on this list may also find its way to straightliners in-game, thus deterring them from doing it again.

They make a new alt that they have to put 5 doubloons into so they can have a fresh lazery badge.


Do it.

Re: Show us the Straightliners
Ok, I tried, but I can't help myself.

Look, I used to XO on SMAs aLOT. I used to double as the MAA a lot of times, because I knew what I was doing.

Not all straightliners are afk lazers. Some lag when pulled off a puzzle. Some D/C. Some sent you that tell you demand when they need to pee, grab a drink, check on a kid, answer the phone or door, or need 10 seconds to change the mouse batteries, and well, you missed it or forgot to unclick their name.

Some had to drop everything for a legit emergency (I don't expect a tell if your kid's bleeding or your puppy is about to pee on the power strip or your stove is on fire).

Catch them with ZZZ above their head and plank them, then mute them so you can't job them. Inform your fellow officers, so THEY can mute them. Problem solved, and you aren't embarassing players who don't really deserve it.

Re: Show us the Straightliners
99% of straightliners are just abusing the ability to multiclient. (A legit emergency will result in a ZZZ as well, so I'm not sure what your point is there.) I'm sure that if a pirate on one of Enna's runs has such an issue and explains it to her (before or after) then they won't end up here. A strong social pressure against lazing and straightlining is a good thing.

Immediately muting them means that they can't explain their absence if they had a legit reason, so I don't support that ... telling the rest of the crew so they can put them on a non-job list, yes, and adding them to your mute a little time later if they don't have an explanation.

Yes, they can just get a new alt, but if it costs them 5 dubs a trip they aren't going to keep doing it for long. A pillage doesn't cost them anything to join, but if you plank during the fray they straightline in and -1 them they don't get any money from it so it's not worth their while.

Edit: Lag-out and disconnections don't result in a straightline, they result in a blank board. The only way to straightline is to get pulled into the puzzle, load it successfully and not be watching it. And although perpetual d/cing isn't the pirate's fault, it's still a good reason not to job that person for SMHs, unfortunately.

He makes a very good point give them a chance to explain them self before muting them but, just remember how easy it is to make up a quick lie on the spot.
