Community Moderation
Besides the rating, each post contains a community moderation score. Any person can delete any post.  All posts are meant to be temporary, so there is no harm in deleting any post you don't like.  
If a post is downvoted to -10 our software deletes it.
A downvote costs 3 loonies. An upvote is 1 loony.  This is a 3:1 attacker/defender ratio for free speech.  Karens are the attackers, Pirates are the defenders.  Pirates are defending lawful free speech against tyranny just as they did during the golden age of piracy.
This 3:1 ratio is a tool and advantage for double agents, false flag operations, agent provocateurs and praetorian guards that take part in mutinies against the Karen army.
A leaderboard is kept for both the Karens and the Pirates for community moderation.  They will both have their heroes in the battle for free speech.
If there is actual content that should definitly be deleted, please downvote it to -10 as this site is not moderated.

Booth - Most volunteer coupons and epiphanies will choose "Booth." A Booth is operated by the author of the volunteer coupon or epiphany.
Boat -The remote operation of your TAVE and anytime you are in a boat.  
An "Anything you can paddle" boat parade is an example of volunteers live-streaming and a pirate gang catfishing for you.   You share the comedy username and password so your pirate crew can login to your TAVE. 
While you paddle and get wet, your gang of pirates is sitting miles away, dry in a pirate dive bar drinking grog and laughing as they manage catfishing for viewers and mutinies for you. 
Volunteer - This is fund raising where credit cards or cash is not used.
Volunteers are similiar to people that walk, run or wash cars for other nonprofits.   Volunteers can do anything to "Get Loony."  "Will  swim one lap for 5 loonies" in a who can swim the most "fun raiser" contest.
You might want some dog poop picked up at your apartment complex.  You can post a notice and pay somebody in loonies or the volunteer may have posted that notice by taping the QR codes to the dog walking area.
The volunteer could wash cars for 50 loonies. Or bake cookies for work and leave the QR codes beside the plate to pay for them.  
The volunteer can catfish or actually volunteer!

GET LOONY!
Donation reward points are called "Loonies." You get 1 loony for every 25 cents you donate.  The nonprofit gets 100% of your donation.
Click on your favorite nonprofit
Loony Math
When you donate 25 cents to any of these nonprofits listed above you get a reward point called a "Loony."  This is like buying little red tickets at a state fair or tokens at an arcade. Use the loonies for food, drinks and fun.
The nonprofit gets 100% of your donation.  This is listed in your account at the top right of your screen, on our public ledger and PayPal immediatly sends you a confirmation email. 
How to "Get Loony" 
You are with 3 friends at a sports bar playing your weekly game of darts. You want to keep a continuing weekly score. You also want to create a tournament with prizes and turn your loony booty into a cash tip for the server. (Servers with a loony booty are called “Mermaids.”)
Register a new comedy account with a bogus name and email. This score keeping account is called the "Bootymaster."  
Besides score keeping, a Bootymaster account enables pirate comedy, treachery, mutiny, false flag plays, catfishing, cheating, booby prizes and more.
Everyone can know the login and password of the Bootymaster. You can write it on the chalkboard for the dart game and leave it there to create a “for ever” tournament for that sports bar.
A bootymaster can let all the players in the sports bar know the login and password but not the online players. This lets live players have the advantage and scheme against online players by creating skits, games and karaoke challenges that online players gamble on. 
You can use any method of scoring, and gambling.  Any type of game, karaoke challenge or skit can be broadcast and gambled on by online players.  In real time, your social media actors could be paid in loonies and earn more than youtube or tik tok views.
Bootymaster accounts are how each parade boat will be able to live-stream skits, games and pirate shenanigans to anyone watching and throwing loonies from anywhere. 
A typical night out
Loonies, just like the pirates cheating, catfishing and gambling with them, have no redeemable value. You can pretend they have loony value by trading them for anything. This could be 20 loonies for a half a plate of chicken wings. The wings could have been ordered by your buddy but he isn't eating them because you paid your buddy 10 loonies to go on the Karaoke stage and sing and dance a pirate jig. You have sold the wings to someone else while your buddy is on stage.  You draw attention to somebody eating the wings to distract the performance. To make amends you could trade 100 loonies to your buddy to tip the Mermaid $10 or use loonies for a discount coupon for more wings. You see a pair of roller blades listed on the thrift and volunteer exchange for 200 loonies so now you want to “Get Loony.” In an act of revenge, your buddy that had his chicken wings stolen will pay you 200 loonies for picking up dog poop. You agree and the condition is that you have to walk behind somebody you don’t know, and offer to pick up poop for them… It could be poop from dogs. You have to put the poop in a bag then in a lunch box that already has bags of dog poop and a bag of chocolate. You give the lunch box to your kids who are in on the gag. They open the bag of chocolate and start eating it. The person walking their dog is watching this and the reaction is recorded on video. Your buddy posts the gag on his social media as revenge for making him sing a sea shanty, do a pirate jig and selling his chicken wings. He gets a lot of hits on his social media account.
The Mermaid serving you all those wings wants cash. The Mermaid doesn’t care about your loony booty. So you sell your loony booty for cash. You give the cash to the Mermaid for a score that really counts.
You have 500 loonies from being a dart, pool and karaoke shark. At 25 cents a loony that represents $125 in donations to nonprofits. As a shark you list those 500 loonies for sale at $75. You get talked down to $50. You transfer the loonies and get the cash. It can be folding cash from the person next to you or cash app cash from online players. You can now score with the Mermaid by giving her $25 in cash. You keep $25, the nonprofits got $125 to create those loonies and somebody got 500 loonies for 10 cents a loony instead of the 25 cents per loony. The last person plans on selling loonies for 15 cents each to make $25. The people they sell them to are getting a deal on 25 cent loonies for just 15 cents each. They might even re-sell them for 20 cents each.
Loonies shrink by 15% each time you transfer them.  Mermaids and Sharks who want to sell their loony booty for cash, will be motivated to create comical and playful bait so that you will "Get Loony."  If you have lots of fun, great deals on food and drink and then keep creating more fun, the loonies will run out and somebody will have to donate to nonprofits again to “Get Loony.”
To use loonies from your boat, sports bar, restaurant or couch, people have to be able to find you.   A “Venue” lets people find you.  A venue also lets you find donated items, volunteers, activities and sponsors for nonprofits that have discounts and specials.
Venue = “A thrift and volunteer exchange.” 
A thrift and volunteer exchange is where you redeem your donation reward points (called loonies) for goods, services, skits, prizes and adventure.
To connect your venue to your boat in a boat parade, poker run, raft-up or fishing tournament look at the "Boat Parade" software that lets people connect to any boat in a boat parade or poker run.
This form produces presets, QR codes and shareable links  so that anyone can find and “Get Loony” at your venue.  People can scan your QR code or click on your shareable link and are now connected with interactive posts and live-streaming.
Your venue lists volunteer coupons and epiphanies.  Volunteer coupons are for goods and services.  Epiphanies are for skits, prizes and adventure.  With one click on a volunteer coupon or epiphany, loonies are transferred from your account to their account.  A receipt appears on your phone, your account, their account and the public ledger.  The other person looks at your phone and sees the receipt.  This provides interactive customizable information and no bar code, scanner, hardware, software or downloaded app is needed.
The most important point is that it is automatic and hands free for the server or cashier. 
You don't always have to donate with your credit card to "Get Loony." You can "Get Loony" by volunteering, donating items or creating hilarious skits, games and performances.
You can operate fund raising events that raise thousands for your charity and not handle any cash or credit cards at your event.  Each charity immediately gets 100% of the donation made through PayPal as people connect directly to a nonprofits PayPal account from their phone.
Here are a few ways you can use venues to “Get Loony”
You are playing darts, pool or having a karaoke challenge at your local sports bar where you can see online or live players who have checked into that sports bar venue.  Everyone will be able to live-stream, chat or gamble with loonies. Any type of social media live-streaming can be used or you can use our built in zoom and chat rooms.
If you are at a concert, and somebody has listed the concert as a venue you will be able to find and chat with them to form a group dancing and singing, possibly to create social media.
If you have listed your apartment clubhouse as a venue, you can leave a post up for months to see who can exchange kids clothes and toys at the clubhouse.  It could be for free or for a few loonies.
If there is dog poop not picked up at your apartment complex, you can offer to pick it up for 100 loonies or more.  You can then trade the loonies at your clubhouse for household items or anything else.  You can even arrange ride shares and car pooling from your clubhouse.
At your HOA clubhouse and pool, you might want to have a party to support your favorite charity. No cash or credit cards will be used at your party and yet it may generate thousands of dollars for your favorite charity!
You create a venue for your HOA clubhouse. You create an “Epiphany”  that will describe and advertise the party weeks in advance.  People can create their own volunteer coupons and epiphanies and list them at the HOA venue for the party.  People will have time to plan and prepare by exchanging messages about the preparation of food, decorations, costumes, skits, performances, games, booty prizes and booby prizes so that everyone can “Get Loony.”
The party plan is to have live players create so much fun that online party goers attend sitting at home or watching from work can donate and support your charity.  The people at the party could create interactive skits and fun that will “Catfish” the online players to “Get Loony” by gambling on skits, contests and fun.
As the host, your title is the “Bootymaster.”  Bootymasters can also be team captains when teams or individuals compete.  A Bootmasters score goes on a leaderboard and can be used to award prizes.  The Bootymaster decides on the exchange rate of tokens for the live players.  Online players use loonies.  You can make it easy and use monopoly money or poker chips but there are many more possibilities.  Colored elastics worn on your wrist can indicate different amounts of loonies and party debt you owe.  The Bootymaster can easily convert any token into or out of electronic loonies.  No cash or credit cards are ever used or at risk! Tokens are great for pool parties or activities that have sports and games where cell phones are not possible.  You can have a mixture of tokens such as poker chips, beads, elastic bands and monopoly money but you can also assign a token value to food, drinks, booty prizes, booby prizes  and volunteer duties.  “I see in your account that you have 22 loonies.  Here is a steak medium rare for 20 loonies.  Thanks for the 20 loonies.  Do you want a plate with for that steak?  It will be another 10 loonies, you better donate quick, that steak is going to burn.  5 people watching have bet 100 loonies you will eat it with your hands and three people bet you will burn your fingers.  Are you going to want one of them fancy craft beers you brought, then gave to the Bootymaster for admission?  We are auctioning the last one now.  Better donate again to “Get Loony.”

How

Choose a booty card.  Sell or catfish your booty.  Biggest Booty wins!

The Bootymaster decides any amount of loonies for the ante of their round. Players fold or transfer the loony ante into the Bootymasters treasure chest. After all the ante is collected (also from the Bootymaster) it is counted.  If the Bootymaster does not get loony by selling or catfishing her booty, she pays twice the collected ante to the next Bootymaster. The Bootymaster draws a booty card. She selects the booty for that card and posts the link.  The other players click on the link to see the booty she chose. Using Zoom, live-streaming, chat, messaging or voice, she has 1 minute to get anybody to take the bait and transfer loonies into her account.  If she is selling, she surrenders the booty, if she is catfishing, she dosn't surrender the booty.  She wants to "Get Loony" so she will tell any size of fish stories to sell or catfish her booty.
(catfishing means she got loony but never surrendered the booty!)  HINT: Each time you catfish somebody other players notice and it is harder to catfish the big ones next time.   For the most fun, see how many times you can catfish the same person but never surrender the booty!  She might surrender the booty all the time to her favorites with a secret mutiny just to catfish other players.  You never know who is playing on what team as everyone makes false flag, double agent and secret deals to catfish loonies.
If nobody buys her loony booty she pays twice the ante she collected to the next Bootymaster.  This is the next person on the sign up sheet.  If somebody does buy her loony booty, they become the next Bootymaster.

Two - Bounty: Something you want
Ace - Mutiny: Anything
From Ace to King each player should create 13 different types of booty cards.  This can be done days or weeks before playing or during the game. You can copy somebodies ideas or create your own.  You can see all the different types of cards created here.
Creating a simple booty card takes about 30 seconds so this can be done during the game.  Strategically you might want to take much longer and edit and update your booty cards over days and weeks so your loony booty looks great and is in show room condition.  You may want to use "hide" to keep your best cards out of view until you need them.  You can create as many cards as you want and then use edit just before you play the card to tweak the amount of loonies to the stakes you are playing for.
The biggest booty wins!  Catfish loonies using any method.  You play until you are out of loonies. You can get more and keep playing by donating to a nonprofit or selling yourself into volunteerism (slavery). Slavery is on a per minute basis.  Masters pay in advance. Slaves catfish masters by leaving the plantation and doing nothing. They can stay on the plantation and work off their debt for loony wages and conditions so they increase their value as a slave and make it easier to catfish other masters with a big loony booty.
At anytime you can redeem your loonies for any booty (prizes) you see.  Creating great prizes are one way to strategically drain the loonies out of somebody elses treasure chest to make your booty bigger.
Begin
Live and online players sign into the game.  This gives an order of rotation according to when they signed up.  Players can enter or leave a game at anytime.  You can play with or without a fixed amount of people.
Players draw cards in the order they signed up. The first ace drawn is the first Bootymaster.  The first joker drawn is the Kraken.  Continue to draw cards until those two spots are decided.  If the Kraken leaves the game, players draw cards until another one chosen.
Anytime a Bootymaster wants more time to sell their loony booty, the Kraken is paid.  The first minute is free, the second minute is double the ante, the third minute is triple, etc.
The only rule for everything on this website  is “You Lose.” Your only move is to transfer loonies first, then expect you just lost them.  You always expect that you took the bait and were catfished out of your loonies. Your only strategy is to say or do anything to “Get Loony,” and make your own booty bigger. If you know that everyone is “catfishing” with fish stories, will you still take the bait and be caught hook, line and sinker? You might want to be caught and reeled in if you are laughing at somebodies big booty when they "Get Loony."

youtube & tik tok
Youtube and tik tok pay you to create fun and exciting digital content. What if you got a second revenue stream by also posting here at the Pirate Dive Bar to support nonprofits? 
If you take a few minutes to learn "Loony Math", you will see that 100% of the donations go to any nonprofit you choose and you can be paid in cash... and you decide how much cash.  You also need far less viewers, even just one viewer to trade loonies for cash.
When you donate to a nonprofit on this website you get 1 loony for every 25 cents you donate.  What if you created so much fun, great deals or volunteerism that 20 or 30 people gave you 1,000 loonies? Together those 20 or 30 people  would have had to donate $250 to any of the nonprofits to get 1,000 loonies.  Now you have the loonies and the nonprofits have 100% of the real money.
Loonies are 100% worthless just like the pirates catfishing you to get their hands on your loony booty.
Somebody else has created a volunteer coupon and listed a donated bicycle for 400 loonies.
Somebody who wants the bicycle could donate $100 to the nonprofits and get 400 loonies and then trade for the bicycle.
But wait a second, you have 1,000 loonies you got for having fun.  Instead of somebody donating $100 to nonprofits for 400 loonies, how about they give you $50 for 500 loonies?  You can even let them talk you down to $40 for 750 loonies or make whatever deal you want.  The nonprofits already got the real money, so they are not being cheated out of $100. The points are being recycled to be pay you as a "fun raiser." This will motivate you to keep producing fun and exciting content which results in more donations to the nonprofits and when you post the media you create here on youtube or tic tok, you lead people back to this site.
The "anything you can paddle" boat parade is just one of many events we have that can inspire you to produce great fun, deals and volunteerism for your digital media.
Loonies shrink by 15% every time you transfer them.  That means they can circulate for about 5 times before they almost shrink into nothing and somebody has to donate again.
There is a catch, you are the catch. Everybody is catfishing and trying to get their hands on your loony booty and the only rule we have is "You Lose."
Catfishing Pirates want to make it completely unfair so you always transfer loonies first and then expect you were catfished and you will get nothing in return.  In the chance you were not catfished, it was probably just to set you up for a bigger score.
Your only strategy is to use the public ledger, but you still have to make a wild guess.  This website lets you view the public ledger including every message and transaction of every identity. You still don't know if you are going to be catfished or not, but you made an effort.  You are going to be catfished, you just don't know when or how often. The question is, are you smart enough to catch the catfisher and get your hands on their loony booty?
How you avoid being catfished is up to you. Once you transfer loonies, there are no do-overs, mistakes or goofs.
To trade your loony booty for cash you make "Booty Call."  This is a post where you list an amount of loonies an what amount of cash you will trade for them. 
Mermaids are servers in sports bars or restuarants, Sharks are everyone else.
Mermaids are always your best choice for trading loonies for cash and then  watching their booty get bigger.
A Mermaid lists the restuarant or sports bar they are working at and you visit them there.  Their post tells you the details. You sit in their section.  You show them their post on your cell phone.  If they transfer loonies to you, you give them cash then order your food and drinks.  Cash for loonies are separate from any tip you leave and is done before you order food and drinks.  Several Mermaids can share the same profile at a restuarant or sports bar.  Anyone of them can make whatever deal they want, whenever they want.  Mermaids can create volunteer coupons for the restuarant such as "Donate $2 (8 loonies) get $5 off a hamburger.   When you click on their volunteer coupon, loonies automatically go into the Mermaid account or the account of the person that created that volunteer coupon.  This is how a Mermaids booty can get bigger and they can sell their big booty for cash.
Sharks make any deal they want.  In both cases you wait until you "Get Loony," before giving them cash or cash app cash. 
Loonies are 100% worthless, so it doesn't matter if you are cheated out of them.  You voluntarily make the choice to transfer them to a bunch of catfishing Pirates.  

Restuarants the mermaids lair
Mermaids are servers or managers at restaurants that create volunteer coupons for discounts, specials and upgrades.  For example “Donate $1 (4 loonies) Get $2 off or a free drink”.  A customer scans a QR code, clicks on a discount then shows a receipt on their phone.
When the customer clicks once, all the accounting and record keeping has been done for that transaction.  This includes two donation ledgers. A donation ledger for tax write-offs for the customer who donated to “Get Loony,” and a donation ledger for the restaurant who donated the discounts or specials to the nonprofits.
No personal or protected information is used in the transaction.  PayPal has already provided the security for the transaction long before a customer ever sees or clicks on a discount.
Volunteer coupons are hands free for the server and have no cost, hardware or software for the restaurant.  The volunteer coupons can create a second cash tip for the servers even from people not in the restaurant.
Volunteer coupons for a restaurant can be created by the manager or servers and can be accessed by just one person or by a group of employees.
If the manager creates guidelines for employees to create volunteer coupons, employees can use their creativity to market and advertise the restaurant by creating interesting volunteer coupons that include fun and community.
Loony score keeping and leaderboards for darts, pool, karaoke challenges and any other activity is easy.  Loony gambling on darts, pool, karaoke challenges, sports on TV or for anything else is legal!
Zoom, chat rooms, bulletin boards and the ability to find and talk to any person sitting anyplace in the restaurant or even visiting the restaurant online can build a real community. Patrons can leave or read want ad messages and arrange a time to meet at the restaurant to discuss details or trade items and services.
Restaurants are an ideal place for the Atlanta Volunteers. They have food, drink and a public place to have meetings at anytime with a mix of live and online volunteers.
The Atlanta Volunteers would like patrons to use the community building tools to select a Special Hero at the restaurant. This will form an “Ability Team” that discusses ways to improve the Special Heroes’ quality of life.
Here is an example how to have fun with a special hero and easily make the world a much better place!

Cameron became a Superhero!

Cameron has had a life long dream of singing with a band. Music has had a very dramatic effect on Camerons speech, reading, production speed of his words and most importantly his hopes and dreams. The auidience was secretly told and was prepared to clap, cheer and give a heroes applause. Cameron had a standing ovation, wild cheers, lots of high fives, hugs and even kisses! Everyone wanted to be Camerons friend! Cameron will have this memory for all his life. Cameron was publicly validated as a Superhero and now his feeling of acceptance, accomplishment and importance will be forever changed. The $80 we spent on a night out on the town for some wings, sprite and some craft beer is a great  example of how to claim dinner and drinks on your taxes! This was a great example of a true business expense for the TV series Special Heroes and also a nonprofit business expense.
Enthusiastic patrons they can use our crowd sourcing tools to go beyond and build an episode of “Special Heroes.”
A successful episode will produce revenue and a “Tropical Adventure Competition,” for the Special Hero and Ability Team members.
The Special Hero receives 66% of the episode gross with no expenses and the team pays all the expenses and splits anything left from 33% of the gross. This creates a very exciting reason for live and online patrons to visit the restaurant as it can result in some serious cash and adventure!
Booty Call
Loonies are transferred automatically to the Mermaid that created the volunteer coupon.  Even when the Mermaid is not physically present at the restaurant, her loony booty gets bigger each time somebody clicks.
When her booty gets really big it is time for a “Booty Call.”  (explained in the section “Loony Math” above)
If the Mermaid has done such great marketing with her volunteer coupons that a hundred customers have come into the restaurant her reward is more folding cash while she works or more cash app cash at anytime.  So for all her hard work, she deserves a “Booty Call.”

A Thrift and Volunteer exchange has three componets.
1. Volunteer coupons give you a receipt and are used to donate products and services.
2. Epiphanies give volunteer performers a first notice copyright and are for music, sports, art, any skit that makes people laugh.
3. Venue gives you powerful search and communication tools.
Epiphanies and volunteer coupons can reward the hard work of a traditional volunteer or the foolishness of a pirate jig.
Volunteer coupons and epiphanies give you a “loony score” and are used together to create a public ledger. This public ledger creates the most transparent nonprofit you have ever seen.
A game called “Get Loony,” lets you use your volunteer coupons and epiphanies as game pieces.
“Get Loony” can be played anytime at work, play, church, school, during boat parades, events, fund raisers or parties to turn any activity into a live and online “fun raiser.” Use it for any cause and any reason.

A paradigm shift for heroes & heroes born with special powers

Special Heroes

“Special Heroes” is a 30 episode TV series that shows the international mission of the Atlanta Volunteers as they turn heroes born with the special powers of Down syndrome, spina bifida or other conditions into Super Heroes!
At the end of every episode is a one minute vignette called “The Tropical Adventure Competition.” The clip shown above is an example of a live-streamed tropical celebration for the Super Hero, family, cast, crew and fans who have attempted to solve one of humanities greatest challenges. Many special heroes never get to experience a tropical adventure. When they do it should be an amazing experience that will stay with them for rest of their lives.
The boat parade creates “B-roll” and a chance to participate in the TV series called “Special Heroes.”
Community owned and crowd sourced, this TV series lets anyone compete to be cast or crew. Crowd sourcing breaks all the production components into small pieces that you can produce at your location in minutes or months.
Your thrift and volunteer exchange can provide the funding, talent and collaboration for your social media production.

Special Heroes

You sometimes see a TV series where a team devotes a lot of time, skill and artistry competing to create a “thing” of beauty from a house, garden or old car.
What if a person was the focus of the competition instead of a “thing?”
This type of altruistic competition”, describes our TV series called “Special Heroes.
Your thrift and volunteer exchange has powerful features that lets you meet future team members that may be sitting a few tables away, very close at another sports bar or on the same lake as you. If you have both checked into the same venue, you can communicate through each others thrift and volunteer exchange. After meeting online you might travel a short distance away to get your team and episode started.
When you meet another volunteer, you could discuss something funny at your thrift and volunteer exchange by playing the game “Get Loony,” create a skit or decorate a boat for the boat parade. You could also discuss a content creation strategy for the TV series “Special Heroes” and help turn a hero into a Super Hero!
Sailor, Landlubber, Pirate Moderation

Anyone can delete a post if they don't like it.

Pirate = almost kicked out of a sports bar

We want this site to be as family friendly as possible but without limiting legal free speech. Each post has two pages, a listing page and an action page. The listing page is intended to be "G" rated and warns of Sailor, Landlubber or Pirate content on the action page. If you are at work or in school avoid pages marked as Landlubber or Pirate. Look for "Green Sailor" posts that have a positive score and represent posts that could be safe for broadcast or work. (If you are playing "Get Loony" Sailor posts are jokingly safe for the kangaroo court room of the Praetorian guards but only if you have bribed the "Bootymaster.")

An amber "Landlubber" post has a negative score down to -10. When the community down votes anything below -10, the post is called a pirate and is automatically deleted by our software. Any person can remove any post for any reason such as when somebody says something obscene and offensive similar to "The Dodgers are the greatest baseball team ever." If you see something obscene like that, remove it immediately!
When you remove a post, especially offensive obscene Dodgers comments, this is called "Throwing a pirate overboard." Nobody gets banned or ghosted here, just thrown overboard to the sharks.

Pirates outgunned and outnumbered would raid British ships and bring back munitions and supplies to freedom loving colonists. With the help of patriotic pirates, the colonists won their independence and formed the USA. We are calling on Lake Lanier pirates to help people born with special powers turn into Super Heroes and win their independence.
“More activities than a state fair with a boat parade”
About the home page
About
This boat parade is part of a TV series.
Teams can compete for funding and volunteers. 
In this TV series, 30 hero’s with the special powers of Down syndrome, spina bifida, autism or other super powers will be turned into Super Heroes. 30 teams will compete to turn their hero into a Super Hero!
To explain this competition think of 30 fishing boats. The captain of each boat is the Super Hero. The episode production team is the crew of the fishing boat. The Captain will get 2 fish the crew will get one. If you catch 3 fish, and have 10 crew members the Captain will get 2 whole fish and 1 fish would be divided by the 10 crew members to provide all the labor and expenses for the production. 
If your episode catches a lot of fish, the production team, no matter how big it is could do very well!
The Super Hero, a family member and 1 other person create the leadership team. The production crew could be 1 person or it could be 100 people. The production crew can be anyone and any combination of individuals, organizations, nonprofits, businesses, schools, clubs, families and can include viewers of the episodes.
Although those 30 fishing boats are competing think of them as being part of a fleet that supports and shares with each other. To know what support each boat can share, everything is on a public ledger. Everything can be shared with anyone. If one team produces a great opening shot or theme song then all teams can use that great opening shot and theme song. Or they can produce their own.
The public ledger lets everyone know what can be shared. Requests for items, services and help can be posted on the public ledger. The production software produces an automatic copyright for any media produced and listed on the public ledger. The public ledger copyright is through a nonprofit called the Atlanta Volunteers and this makes it community owned while giving fair use to anyone.
Anyone can use anything they simply cannot own it or sell it.
