When you post, you are catfishing in our catfishing tournament. Your catch is weighed in points called "Loonies" (short for Dubloons). Your redeem loonies for cash gift cards or prizes to win catfishing tournaments. Some posts will attempt to trick you by being honest and filled with facts. BEWARE of these.

There are many ways to win, such as having your clever posts create comedy bumpers for our TV series called "The Tropical Adventure Competition". You can also win loonies with pirate themed comedy using rigged gambling, bribing of judges, punishing the innocent, sucking up to the Bootymaster, fixing bets or appearing as a mermaid to lure sailors to their doom.

You will find many other ways to catfish players with this form or by playing the "Karaoke Challenge Game".

Maximum of 50 characters
This is a tagline of one or two sentences to get them to click on the bait. Maximum 300 characters.

This is the end of the first page, called the listing page.  The next page, the detail page is where you can fight your catfish to reel in some loonies with the loony transfer widget at the top of the detail page. You can always read the messages and see the loonies they transferred to you in the drop down menu in the top right of your screen.(Look now, scroll to the first entry where we gave you four loonies for registering. "loonies" > "loonies history")

Careful, if they bite here you might not get them back.
Why should somebody use your transfer widget to vote, buy or gamble?
Do You Want To Post Now?

Instead of a bobber going up and down to see if you are getting nibbles, you will have to check your scheme for comments and the menu under your profile for notifications, invitations, friend requests and more to be a skilled catfisher.

Type of post (Sailor = True for work/education/safety, Landlubber = Rowdy 50% true, Pirate = 99% lies, comedy, art or shock)
Quickstart (Overview)

Your goal is to rescue First Responders with a smile and as much fun as you can have, to say "Thanks!"

Create a contest entry, livestream link or catfishing scheme to get votes.  Even in a crowded place like Mary Alice Park or on a boat someplace on Lake Lanier people can use our search tools to find the beach or boat you are on in the parade or anchored someplace and trade votes for a taste of your yummy apple pie, perfectly grilled hot dog or get hooked on the bait of your catfishing scheme. Think of it as a pirate (on a waverunner, pontoon or paddleboard) following a treasure map somewhere on Lake Lanier just to taste your apple pie! Mutiny against crime and use your detective skills and tools on this site to catch lying cheating pirates, find great bargains or eat some absolutely wonderful apple pie!

Livestream your contest entry!

A livestream link lets people at home choose from many different views of the event simply by clicking on "livestreamers" one after another until they find a channel they like. Some people will get votes days, weeks or months after the event by browsing the livestream library and co-operatively crowd sourcing to create media for the "Tropical Adventure Competition" TV series. (all livestream links are open source under our copyright and available for public use but not for sale) Crowd sourcing is how the TV episodes are created. (You already see lots of TV content from cell phones. This site lets you share editing, special effects, sound and more from people around the world to create broadcast media content for TV shows)

Votes are the "ice breaker" for sharing

Think of this a large family picnic. Most people will bring something to share or will volunteer to help out. (Some will just eat and sleep like most families!) We ask that you bring apple pie, hot dogs, organize "beachball baseball" games or sign up as a volunteer in the water to help "Mutiny" the flag or clean up after the event. To make it fun to share your apple pie, hot dogs or games with others you create a contest entry and sharing happens when they find you from your contest entery. We give each person 4 votes called "Loonies" (short for Dubloons) when they login. You can get more votes by donating with the "Bootymaster". You charge people as many votes as you want for your apple pie or hot dogs or leave it to them after they eat.   Upload a picture or livestream your apple pie, hot dog or other entry even weeks before the event. Add a title, catch phrase and options to get votes now, use the silent auction or negotiate. Play online if you can't attend in person and bid against people in livestreams. Watch the event by choosing from dozens of livestreams from people in the park, on boats, at home or in some Pirate Dive Bar.

You could win a place on the TV show called "The Tropical Adventure Competition" or just support some great first responders. Celebrate local day to day heroes, sign the card, upload a story or just say "thanks" in your own way.

To win an apple pie, hot dog, boat parade, karaoke, mermaid, bootymaster or other contests you have to "Catfish" for votes. Your contest entry is called a "catfishing scheme". You compete in "Catfishing Tournaments. A loony, (short for Dubloon) is a vote. At the prize counter you exchange loony (votes) for prizes. You can do anything you want to get loony and support a hero you choose. Qualified nonprofits can get 98% for their heroes! (Paypal gets 2% of donations. We do not charge fees) You can tell lies like any fisherman, you can vote for yourself, you can bribe judges, you can cheat, gamble or steal and act like a pirate at the -

In Pirate talk, a bootyrat will eat one of your loonies when you submit this form. (simply, it costs you one loony to submit this form)  Bootyrats infest the ship and eat 20% of your loonies each time you transfer them.  This goes to "tips", for a party for all of the volunteers.

Your catfishing schemes (contest entries) are used for a lot of different purposes.

When you click on the bait of a catfishing scheme another page opens up with a "loony & message transfer widget". This is where the catfisher and you, the catfish come to terms. Who will win?

You can enter tournaments, organize games, find or donate prizes with catfishing schemes.

Your catfishing schemes collect loonies and votes that you can spend on prizes or use to win contests.

Do you have a fun, interesting, practical item, service or prize that you want to find, buy or donate? Please list it in the "Prizes, Rewards (Buy, Sell or Trade)" section. Silly and funny prizes like "Will tattoo your name for 1,000 loonies" or "Will film and post a youtube video of your Boat in the parade", "Will name my next dog after your boss", "Will cook you a steak for 50 loonies" are very welcome in that section. Gift cards, game tickets, used items and anything else can be listed. This helps to keep the Atlanta Volunteer Giant Flag events free. You get to keep any loonies your prize generates! Exceptionally successful or fun entries will win prizes.

Visit the Groups page, (found on the High Seas) to join a tournament.  You can post here with or without being in a "free" tournament. After you join a tournament (group), you can use the drop down menu, top right, under your profile Groups > Memberships, to visit your group and its functions.

(You only need to fill out green boxes or circles.  All other background colors display information and do not need an entry.)
Check your loony balance in the menu at the top right under your profile. It costs 1 loony to post this.
