In an effort to formalize some issues, this is intended to be a list of policies we have adopted.

Ship, Shoppe and Roomate Thefts
- YOU MAY BE PERMANENTLY BANNED FOR STEALING
- We may give you a partial refund for any stolen items, however, we encourage you to seek out the thief, point out this thread and try to get the full amount back on your own.
- To report a theft, please submit a complaint, if you do not include all of the following items, we will not be able to help you:

(1) How much was stolen from each vessel/shoppe/house
(2) The name of the vessel/shoppe/house
(3) What island the vessel/shoppe/house is located

We have added a requirement that each time you purchase Doubloons, the CCV (the number on the back of the credit card) must be entered. This is to head off some problems we've had with kids mis-using their parents credit cards and giving away passwords, etc.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused to other customers. If this proves too much of a pain, we'll try something different.

Arr!

Thefts: Trading/Loans
- Three Rings does not recognize loans and deals with terms outside of the in-game trading methods. Once something is exchanged via. a trade, /tip or /pay, the recipient is under no obligation to return it to you. While we will investigate claims of wrongdoing in such cases, we make no promises or guarantees as to what will be done or returned.
- As with other forms of stealing, anyone caught scamming or otherwise cheating someone else out of their poe may be permanently banned from the game.

Fort and Palace Dusting:
- At the moment, when a palace or fort dusts, things break in the game. Until a fix can be implemented, we will be transferring control of any islands whose forts/palaces are close to crumbling to another flag in our control and paying the taxes ourselves. Please pay your taxes or let us know that you intend to give up the island so we can reclaim it before it dusts!

Dusting:
- We will not accelerate the dusting of shoppes or stalls
- Bazaars may be dusted if they are empty and all shoppes of that type have also been dusted on the island.

Age Policy - there's been some confusion as to how we deal with underaged pirates, hopefully this will clear that up.

The age limit for playing Puzzle Pirates is thirteen and up. Anyone playing the game who is confirmed to be underage will have their account suspended until they are old enough to play.

The sinking of custom renames in times of war
If your vessel is sunk in war PvP with another flag:
- Submit a petition with the name of the sunken vessel as the subject. The body should note that you wish to reserve the name and include the crew name and the time the vessel was sunk. This will be confirmed by the crew's PvP records.
- Your crew then has 24 hours from the time the petition was filed to pay the shanghai points to rename another vessel. The source of the shanghai points can be up to two different crews and otherwise follows all rules of shanghai renames.
- This does not apply to blockades, flotillas or Sea Monster Hunting. Take ships into those environments at your own risk!

Shoppe limit per week for Classic oceans

The number of shoppes that can be built in a week is two to slow the rate of development of an island. Note that this does not apply to bazaars and other government buildings!

A week is the time between one blockade and the next or between Sunday and Saturday if there are no blockades. Essentially you can plot two shoppes at any time during one week, it doesn't matter if they're both at the very beginning or the very end.

Edit: Clarification by Demeter in chat 1-10-2013 states noon Sat to noon Sat.

This does not apply to Dark Seas as that is limited in how many shoppes they can place.

Taxes on Ringer islands have all been set to 10%. They should all have been set to that before now, but somehow we never quite got around to all the islands. Sorry for the confusion.
