Moderation Scores

Anybody can remove a post they don't like by giving it a moderation score below -10.
All posts are meant to be as temporary as chalk drawings on a sidewalk or sand castles on the beach. There is no harm done by having any post removed for any reason.
Lets look at how this can be fun!
First of all, votes cost 1 loony each.  Voting up or down raises money for nonprofits as loonies can only be created when somebody donates to a nonprofit we list.  We encourage voting wars! They are a great way to test out your psyops and false flag propaganda skills as a double or triple agent and to sow the seeds of mutiny.
Something truly offensive!
As an example of something truly offensive, somebody says "The LA Dodgers are the greatest baseball team ever!" This post is clearly offensive and should be given a -11 so it disappears.
If the LA Dodgers scoundrel decides to post again, this time he could buy votes for himself and secure his post by giving it 50 up votes.  If you and the good people in the room give it 61 downvotes, that post reaches as score of -11 and it disappears, as it should.
Turf Wars
Besides playing moderation turf war games, a positive moderation score is also used to separate broadcast standards and legal broadcasting content from lawful free speech.  Broadcast standards are anything you can say in a court room, at your business, school or church and also contain no copyright infringements, safety issues, tobacco, alcohol, profanity, legal conflicts and represent the high standards we seek.
If you know your post is truly offensive, such as containing nudity, at least have the courtesy to give it a score of -5 or below when you post it.  A score that low gives people a heads up to avoid it and also changes its warning color from green to orange.  If you choose to read a post with a -5 moderation score and you are offended, why did you choose a post with a score that low?  Never mind Karen, just down vote it some more and get rid of it.
Your boss wins the ugliest dog contest!
Contests are where you can really have fun with the moderation score.  Lets say you are having an ugliest dog contest.  The winner is the highest green moderation score.  Your boss submits a picture of their bulldog, you submit a picture of your boss.  Who will win?
The moderation score works the same as a silent auction
You might have a really great prize such as a ride in your corvette stingray for your silent auction.  At a time that you choose, you pick the winner by the most votes.  Who knows, you might even rig the contest by down voting or upvoting the winner.  Yes, we encourage rigging contests as each vote you give will raise more money for nonprofits.  Jealous wives need to have their say about who is going to be picked to ride in the show car.  The ugliest dog could win and ride in the show car if the wife has her say.
Voting on the record
BTW, you can see all the votes, who is voting and if they left comments for why they voted.  No secret ballots here.  The only way you can steal a vote is if it is not on the public record. All votes here are on the public record in the same way that politicians vote.  Why do you think that politicians always vote on the record and never by secret ballot?  In all the years the USA has had politicians voting thousands and thousands of times, not a single vote has ever been incorrect by even one vote!  (when they vote amongst themselves these scoundrels know how corrupt politicians are) You can only steal votes if nobody knows who votes belong to and they are off the record.  Voting like that is even too despicable for pirates and this is why when you buy votes you are a HERO for supporting nonprofits.
This is true community moderation as anyone can remove or vote on a post.
One serious note, nothing on this site should be sold in dollars!
Please ignore or downvote out all posts that want to sell you something for dollars and not loonies.  These are 100% bogus posts! Please down vote them low enough so they disappear like pirates thrown overboard from a ship.
Green SAILOR posts
Before you read a post look for a green tag that says "SAILOR".  This indicates it could be safe for work, school or even for broadcast TV.  Green SAILOR posts are like riding the subway.  You think it is safe but you do not know.
You only need to know this
Clicking on the top left button (house or dashboard) takes you to the front or back of this website.
Clicking on the top right icon takes you to your account where you will find "Loony" then "Loony history."
In the Loony menu, clicking on an ad takes you to a second page so you can purchase or barter for the item.
In the Loony menu "Show Coupons" lets you show purchased coupons to retailers so you can redeem a coupon.
A green SAILOR post with a positive moderation score should be safe to read.  An orange LANDLUBBER post with a negative score means it probably contains offensive content and you should avoid reading it.
In the Loony menu the Bribe/Booty button lets you send loonies to another player or do a booty search on any player
The purpose of a coupon is to bring a person into a store to buy an item.
When you cut out coupons from a flyer and bring them into the store and hand them to the cashier they sometimes scan them but they always throw them out.  Coupons are 100% worthless! They serve their purpose by bringing you into the store to buy something.
When you see something in the "Loony" store you can click to purchase a coupon or use the transfer widget to barter for it.  Either way, you have created a public record and the coupon does not need to be scanned the retailer has access to it and your purchase. Once you purchase a coupon with loonies, on the "Loony" page you click on "Show Coupons".  Scroll through your purchased coupons and show it on your phone to the cashier, server or mermaid to get the discount.  You have saved them the trouble of scanning the coupon and throwing it out later when you are not around.
If you used the barter widget and transferred loonies, follow the directions that were part of the barter.  The transaction shows up on your "Loony History" and not under "Show Coupons."
We strongly recommend using the barter widget.  This transfers loonies to the server, mermaid or retailer directly.  When you feed loonies to Mermaids, their booty gets bigger.  If a Mermaid has a big enough booty she can make you loony if you give her cash.  A nonprofit gives you 1 loony for every 25 cents you donate.  A mermaid with a big booty might give you 2 or 3 loonies for every 25 cents you donate.  She might even lure you to your doom and give you one loony for every dollar you donate.  Whatever deal you make with a Mermaid is up to just how loony you want to get.  A Mermaids mission is to lure sailors to their doom  with their booty, beauty and charm, so be warned!
Cash Out - Loony Math
You use your credit card and donate $20 to get 80 loonies.  You sell the 80 loonies to your buddy for $10.  What happened?  The nonprofit got a $20 donation from you and it only cost you $10.  Your buddy thinks a lot of you and has 80 loonies worth $20 so you both can create skits or enter tournaments.  Did you just gain in value?  You now have 80 loonies worth $20, $10 cash and the nonprofit got a $20 donation.
You both did great with your skits and tournaments you end up with 400 loonies.  It took a $100 in donations to create those loonies.  You sell them all for $50.  The person that bought them got them at half price and you got $50.  Did you sell the loonies for a loss or gain $50?
Anytime you transfer loonies they randomly shrink by 15% to 25%.  Sometimes just to fool you, you get more.  By selling loonies for cash you give a lesson in loony math that markets the mystery of the Pirate Dive Bar and how a worthless fiat currency works.
If a Mermaid has feasted on a hundred loony coupons she might have a really big booty.  If you give cash to that Mermaid to get loony with her, this new stream of cash makes her becomes a great public relations person for the Pirate Dive Bar.  The Mermaid simply shoves the cash booty into her clothes where the rest of the booty is, and walks away with all the booty.
Retail Businesses - 15 minutes
Before you can create coupons or list a mermaids lair you must add a new venue.
On the "Play" page you will see the "Bootymaster" button.  Click on that to go to the "Bootymaster" page.  On this page you will see a check box for "Add a New Venue".  Fill out that form and you have added a new venue.
When you create coupons you can now choose your venue to create the coupon.
Creating Coupons
On the "Loony" page choose "Donate items or Volunteer".  Follow this menu to create a coupon.
Record Keeping is automatic.  Whoever created the coupon has a complete record in their "Loony History" of everyone who purchased or bartered for the coupon.  If a record is needed for a total amount that can be given by contacting the Atlanta Volunteers on the date you want the total.
The first obvious benefit is that employees (Mermaids) that barter coupons can redeem them loonies for prizes, donated items or cash.  There is a stronger benefit for a few employees that have a person born with a disability in their family.  A team building opportunity now exists for your business to produce an episode for "The Tropical Adventure Competition".  Your business will build a stronger team as they all work together to help a fellow employee and their family have the adventure of a lifetime.

Pirates are misjudged and found sometimes possibly innocent by the Bootymaster. False flag operations, psyops, and mutiny are skills are learned at pirate school so you can avoid being presumed innocent. The Bootymaster won’t keel haul you, but you might be motor boated.

Venture into unknown shark infested waters?

You only need these definitions if you plan on going to the "Play" or "Work" page. 


Get Loony - Click on your favorite Team above, donate any amount to join and Get Loony! You may join as many teams as you want. You trade loonies for treasure. You can also help your team "Play" or "Work". Play is fun raising skits, adventures, sports, games and parties. The fun inspires social media for you or our TV series and is created with volunteers and crowd sourcing. Work is being part of the cast, crew, sponsors or shareholders of your teams TV episode. Each episode is about a quality of life improvement that turns a Hero into a Super Hero.

Treasure Chest - Treasure, rewards, prizes and any reason to support your favorite nonprofit. You may only use loonies to get treasure.

(Loony Menu) Treasure Chest - Think of a Goodwill donation store except that this store is online and has 3 departments. The first department is like you are having a garage sale but it is by appointment only. The second department lists businesses with discounts, gift certificates and specials and the last department has everything from rides in show cars, beach parties, volunteer labor, people who will knit custom outfits for your dog and lots of amazing and unusual prizes.

Everything in the treasure chest is only available by trading loonies. The treasure chest creates a lot of reasons for you to support your favorite non-profit.

(Loony Menu) Bury Treasure - You donate anything to the treasure chest

(Loony Menu) Dream of Treasure - You list goods, services, labor, riding in a boat to a beach party, a custom knitted sweater for your dog or anything else you can dream of. Making your dreams come true is how others can get loony for their favorite nonprofit.

(Play Menu) Treasure Chest - You can find a loony pirate themed second treasure chest in "Play" when you use the "Discover" button. Trade loonies with pirates, sailors, landlubbers, mermaids & sponsors. (includes some real treasure along with unusual surprises and booby prizes)

(Play Menu) Bury Treasure - An "Epiphany" is a post that creates skits and treasured fun for loonies. Skits have 3 categories; Sailor (sports), Landlubber (art) and Pirate (comedy). Sailor is a serious category. You could go sailing, learn scuba, play baseball for 1,000 loonies or learn production skills for the TV series. Landlubber is an entertainment category. You could play the Karaoke Challenge game, Sea Shanty Karaoke, offer a ride in your show car, walk the plank at your pool party, be initiated as a pirate, bribe the Bootymaster to punish the innocent for losing at darts or feed the mermaids at the petting zoo.

The pirate category is where treachery and mutiny is created and rehearsed for pirate raids. A gang of scurvy dogs raid an unsuspecting sports bar to capture landlubbers and turn them into pirates. This raid happens in the middle of the night while the landlubbers at a different port of call are drunk and peacefully singing Karaoke. They are not suspecting a rowdy pirate raid to battle them on the karaoke stage with sea shanties, flash mob Karaoke and the pirate initiation.

Search for Treasure - Use the Discover menu in the "Play" section and then trade loonies for treasure. Treasure is found online, during the Karaoke Challenge Game, at pirate raids, at businesses and some is found with a treasure map.

Bribe - Transfer loonies to get treasure

Catfish - Post a description of treasure or a reason for people to bribe you

Epiphany - A post you create in the "Play" menu that contains the ideas you have for bribing or catfishing

Booty - The amount of loonies you have. The biggest booty wins! (just like the dating site you spend too much time on).

Booty Rat - Booty rats eat 15 - 25% of your bribe just like rats eating the cargo on a ship. Booty Rats shrink the booty you have just like walking the plank into cold water. Eventually you will have to donate again to keep getting loony so that people don't laugh at your shrunken booty.

Mermaids Nonprofits rely on mermaids! Read about them here

Bootymaster - A judge and commander that can't count but who will take bribes and bets to punish the innocent. You can gamble with loonies to bet on football, a game of darts, punishment from the Bootymaster, a jalapeno eating contest, or a challenge to push the boss into a swimming pool with workers watching online. Everyone pays their bets and bribes to the Bootymaster and then she decides who won or lost by how well she likes the cut of your jib.

Anyone can claim the Assistant Bootymaster title (Ass. Booty.) when they post an "Epiphany" in the "Play" section. The epiphany lets the A-B take in bribes or catfish loonies. The A-B can work alone or recruit a "gaggle" of one or more gamers to develop pirate schemes of treachery and mutiny. The A-B can use the siren song of mermaids (in the Karaoke Challenge Game) to lure sailors, landlubbers and pirates to their doom.

A Gaggle of Gamers -To create a gaggle of one or more gamers, the A-B shares their login. The gaggle of gamers can be live or online. They can watch the livestream links on the A-B epiphany. They can send strategic actions and schemes to her. The login can be shared with as many gamers as the A-B's or any gamer wants. More gamers do improve the strategic messages for catfishing, bets and bribes but the risk of mutiny and false flag operations goes up. Any gamer can mutiny against the A-B by transferring booty into another account. This "mutiny against crime" is recorded in the public ledger and can be easily discovered with a Booty Search. More than likely the gaggle will be punished by the real Bootymaster for being innocent of winning. You can bet on it.

Mutiny Against Crime - The A-B and her crew chase and plot against the gamer who stole her booty. Stealth, strategy and false flag plays will be needed to outsmart the gamer. A battle of half wits now begins with everything being recorded on the public ledger.

Punish the Innocent - In regular play the A-B will decide who is guilty of winning by the results and the amount of bets, bribes and schemes listed on her Epiphany. She never knows who is guilty or innocent, so she punishes an innocent person to know for sure. One person is just as innocent as another, so it doesn't matter who is chosen at random to be punished. She also doesn't know the difference between a punishment and a reward. She might have weapons such as a can of whip cream, Jalapeno peppers or a ping pong paddle. Some people like to be paddled so the paddle might not be a punishment, some people like eating Jalapeno peppers so that might be a reward or a punishment and for some people that are lactose intolerant the whip cream might be a punishment the next morning. She might even simply tuck the bets and bribes into her shirt where she keeps her treasure chest and leave with all the booty.

Pirate School - Learn the skills needed to be the cast and crew of the Tropical Adventure Competition. There are 3 types of students; sailors, landlubbers and Pirates. They each have a different field of study. You trade loonies to other players for skills ranked 1 to 9. Each skill has three boxes, Learn, do & teach that must be checked to achieve that rank. You may learn skills in any order and you may teach any skill if the learn and do boxes have been checked.

Open Moderation Filter - Anyone may be a moderator.  You vote with loonies to make the score positive or negative. A positive score approves a post.  A negative score removes a post after a score of minus 10.  Any post that has anything for sale for cash or credit is bogus and should be down voted out.  If the post violates community standards or laws for any reason it should be downvoted until it is removed.  What is being part of the community?  If you have contributed to the community, (donated time or money to a nonprofit) you are part of the community.  When you "GET LOONY", you can vote with loonies.  If you feel strongly about a post you can vote with as many loonies as you want to change the score. 

The moderation filter does much more than just approve or remove inappropriate content.  It has multiple uses for fun and effective fund raising. Teams can vote against each other to show or display their flag, logo or be declared the best or the worst.  For example, you have an ugliest dog competition.  Sure, a dog could win it, but don't you think a picture of your boss would get more votes?

Decorum Filter

Learning, playing and creating are our three environments in the "play" section for decorum.  These are respectively called Sailor, Landlubber and Pirate.  You can approve or remove posts for keeping decorum.

The Sailor environment is the same as being in a classroom, courtroom, or boardroom. You maintain order so that learning or business can be accomplished.  The Landlubber environment is the same as being in a sports bar. You can do almost anything and be as loud as you want so you can have fun.  The Pirate environment is where raw ideas for comedy, script writing, art, music and brainstorming begin.

To keep creative ideas flowing freely, Pirates have a filter to cancel the "Karens". (A Karen is a person who is demanding, entitled, angry, complains or feels offended and definitely ruins a fun creative environment, party or BBQ) Pirates are suspicious and everyone is a Karen until proven otherwise.

Karen's pose the greatest danger as they can accomplish mutinies other pirates only dream of.

On the High Seas you will find the initiation to become a Patriotic Pirate. All initiated pirates start in Gang 1.  You are presented with some fun and games and false flag attacks to see if you are a good sport or a Karen. Gang 2 is having a BBQ, were you invited to the BBQ or did you have to bribe your way in with some loonies?  Some people in Gang 2 heard that Gang 3 is having a BBQ.  By the time you get to gang 3 you should be in a 99.99% Karen free zone. Is there a Gang 4? Only Gang 3 knows. Bribes from Karens are at least 1 loony more than the size of their booty.  Everyone can see their booty.  Karens will have to donate to a nonprofit to be loony enough for the bribe to get into the next greatest BBQ.  (Lets hope you donate quickly as the price could go up. You are starting to look a little bit like Karen, she might even be your sister.)

False Flag Attacks

We request one small change for false flag attacks, make them safe, friendly and comical.  (If you don't know what a false flag attack is, you should google it to see how these "pysops" have been used by tyrants, media and dictators throughout history to control votes, maintain power and justify war.) The false flag attack is part of every great mutiny to get all the loony booty.

For example a whip cream pie to the face to somebody who expects a whip cream pie in the face is not a real attack.  It could be an attack so that people will vote with loonies to see who gets the pie in the face, who throws it and if the winner of the ugliest dog contest is invited to lick it off. (Is that your boss?)  Walking somebody off the plank into a sea (your pool) filled with hungry mermaids is another example of something that is not a real attack.  (You should be able to charge a hefty fee for that walk off the plank and then a larger fee to get out of the pool as surprise, when the captive was blindfolded shift change happened and now sharks are in the water for the false flag attack)

Since everything is on the public ledger, you must be very stealthy and cunning to use a false flag attack. If you start yelling and waving your arms like Ray Epps at a Trump rally, your psyops will be easily discovered. 

You lose - the only rule

This is the only rule drunken pirates can remember while bribing and catfishing at some place called "The Pirate Dive Bar". You bribe a catfisher before expecting to get nothing in return. Honest deals where you do get something for your bribe can be reported to the A-B or the Bootymaster. This report will cost you another bribe. Since the Bootymaster can't count, the Bootymaster bribe is typically greater than the amount you lost, so she can count "for sure" this time. The bribe determines what the Bootymaster pulls out of her treasure chest to punish the innocent person. (worse than keel-hauling... motor boating could be the punishment)
