There is an outbreak of unnecessary over-censorship of screenshots that has plagued the forums for years now. It's hard to tell exactly how it happened, but it seems to be carryover from HEY WAIT YOU CAN'T POST CHATLOGS.

Initially it started with blacking out /tells, which turned into blacking out all of the chat - heaven forbid someone sees that you said, "Hi!" at the inn. It then progressed to blacking out names in duty reports, lest people know somebody got a fine in sailing that one time. Now we're at our current version of blacking out usernames, as if that's personal information. Do we need to blur out pirate faces too? What about animal rights? Do we black out pet names? Elite Triketos?

Let's stop the virus. The only cure is common sense.

I'd really like if people stopped making me feel bad by showing off their higher graphic settings. Can we do something about that too?

Realistically, I just cut all the text out, out of habit. But i do it by only posting something like stu did a few posts above. Black boxes on everything only serves to draw tons of attention to things that really deserved none to begin with.

A month or two ago I got a PM with some guy asking me to edit some post that he'd apparently appeared in.

No pirate name, no other posts. I wrote back asking "what post are you talking about?" and never heard from him again. I think it's safe to say he's anonymous enough.

Someone should start a thread, and some moderator later sticky that thread, where people can post permanent permission to post chat logs of them and screenshots of them. I know I would definitely be adding my name to that list, I just don't care. :)
