Creators such as artists, musicians, logical problem solvers, volunteers, technicians and especially comedians understand that donating a few minutes of time on their phone is more precious than donating a few dollars through PayPal.
Creators have a quest for adventure and a calling to help others.
Think of this website as being similar to solving a crossword puzzle. The problems you solve by donating time or money, create actual quality of life solutions for real people.
If you achieve your quest, you will be cast, crew or consumer (sponsor) of a community owned, crowd sourced episode of the TV series “Special Heroes.”

Below this point you will see features and long explanations that are designed to inspire you to create comical pirate themed volunteer coupons, epiphanies, instructional video and B-roll. Creation (of all kinds) is your “Adventure With Purpose.” Your purpose is to create a solution for a Special Hero to turn them into a Super Hero. The adventure is to be part of the cast or crew of the community owned TV series called “Special Heroes” and turn your solution into an episode. Volunteer coupons can provide funding and labor for your production and epiphanies can provide storylines, rehearsals, comedy and collaboration.
Anyone may post our community copyrighted content on their own site. This can produce revenue clicks for them and be a beacon to lead adventurous pirates to us.

Catfishing Tournament
Catfishing Tournament (Quickstart)
First Responders Boat Parade
 
Heroes are First Responders or Veterans, active or not.
Special Heroes are Heroes born with the “Special Powers” of Down syndrome, Autism, spina bifida etc.
Each boat has one or more  “Game Cards” to enable live streaming and “fun raising.”  Online viewers can skip around to view and react with any of the 3,000 boats or game cards they want to. Some police, fire, EMS, veteran and celebrity locations may also want to set up a land based "booth" to telecommute and live stream to join the parade. When online viewers donate to any of our listed nonprofits, they get electronic pirate coins called “loony” that are transferred to a "Bootymaster" during live streaming.  Two types of items are on the boats game card, a volunteer coupon and an epiphany. Both of these have a widget called “bribe.”  A volunteer coupon trades Loonies for discounts, items or labor.  An epiphany is a performance, skit, gamble, challenge or sport that is performed while livestreaming.  Online viewers “bribe” the bootymaster and the bootymaster “catfishes loonies” from the loonies.
The parade is free and on a first come basis by category.  Captains or lookouts may request volunteers to live stream and fill the roles of Bootymaster, Gamer or other characters.  Captains or lookouts may request volunteers to help decorate or perform an “epiphany.”
  1. First come for Heroes with Special Heroes in their family
  2. First come for Heroes or families of Special Heroes
  3. First come for people live streaming with a game card, volunteer coupon and epiphany
  4. First come for people not live streaming
Celebrities, Celebrity Auctions, Door Prize winners, Decorated boats and teams for episodes will be placed in the parade at the Atlanta Volunteers Discretion.
Except for wave runners, all watercraft must have a minimum crew of two trained people, a captain and a lookout.  A third reccomended person known as the “Bootymaster” live streams and performs the epiphany found on the boats game card. A fourth person known as the “Gamer” takes over the live stream duties so the bootymaster can perform the epiphany.  Other characters such as mermaids, galley wenches, cabin boys, sharks, gunners and more can be added.  Additional live streams and Bootymasters can be added to the game card.  The captain and lookout can rotate with anyone that has passed online parade  training.  Passengers and those without assigned duties are not considered part of the crew for purposes of the game card.  “Online Gamers” can bribe to direct or manage the epiphany by negotiating with any other Bootymaster or Gamer for co-ordinated skits.
Each captain and lookout must complete the free online parade training and be dedicated to their safety duties.  Each boat must meet the safety and parade requirements described in the online training.
Each boat must print out the parade flag on a piece of paper and tape it to the captains station and include enough space around the paper to recognize the boat and take a picture of it. Other fun photos should be taken of the crew around the boat.
Boats are organized into 10 boat squads.  Three squads are organized into a group.  The parade will have a maximum of 100 groups traveling at walking speed and will know how to start and stop together similar to any other parade.
Catfishing Tournament
Catfishing equipment (also known as an "Enviromentally Purposeful Public Scam" or "EPPS") will let you vote for yourself, create false flag plays and be an agent provocateur to carry out your duties as a Praetorian Guard.
Part of a "Volunteer Coupon" is shown below
The moderation score is positive 3 and Sailor is in green.
The moderation score is -2 and Landlubber is in red and warns you not to read that post! When the score drops to -11 the post disappears.
Anybody can make any post disappear. Posts are like sandcastles on the beach. Any praetorian guard, like your fratty sister Karen can knock them down.
This is actual true community moderation!
Sailor means the post meets broadcast standards, has no copyright infringements, alcohol, smoking, salty language and is safe for work, school or in the courtroom of the praetarian guards. These are the posts that "maybe just maybe" are "OK" enough to be used in the TV series "Special Heroes."
Landlubber means the post could be okay in most sports bars if the score is close to zero, but definitely not if it is closer to -10. If you are ever in doubt, if it should be deleted, just delete the post by giving it a score of -11. Think of yourself as a "First Responder" for the Ministry of Truth. Nobody gets banned, just thrown overboard to the sharks.
Pirates are posts that disappear when they are thrown overboard. Lets say you see something truly disgusting and filthy such as "The Dodgers are the greatest!". Immediately down vote (down votes costs 3 loonies and upvotes cost 1 and these pirate battles raise money for nonprofits) that moral turpetitude and throw that Pirate overboard! If they are from Pittsburgh then they might stay if the Atlanta Braves are not around. You can fine tune moderation scores to make a point. For example, give something a positive score of 1,000 and you will be honored by the Ministry of truth! (If that Dodgers scoundrel does that, the good people in the room should see it as a call to action and attack that post even though downvotes are three times as expensive as upvotes. No way could that Dodgers scoundrel be an agent provocatuer in a false flag play).
You vote for your own stars!
Stars cost 1 loony each and show how much you care about your own post and how much you care about freeloading off this site. The first thing you should do is vote for yourself to get all stars. Otherwise you look like you gave your own post no stars. You can down vote stars on somebody elses post to sell them protection insurance against star downvoting or to call somebody else a freeloader. Check your posts and upvote your stars to bring them back to being full and avoid costly protection insurance for star damage.
You can see the booty, bribes and influence peddling of any person by doing a Booty search
Welcome! Without any laws or votes to create the Ministry of truth, qualification, knowledge or an election, you have just been drafted into your new life as a praetorian guard in the "Ministry of Truth." Your mission is to eradicate a free speech disease of comedy in the body politics called "disinformation." Mark anything that has a moderation score to -11 and that Pirate walks the plank and disappears. You will get honor by being a bootyful marksist in the Ministry of Truth.
If you look at a public ledger, you can see catfish peddling their influential booty around town. A praetorian guard does not judge on truth, they are influenced by the booty they see peddling around them.
It costs 11 loonies to get Genuine EPPS catfishing bait. In a catfishing tournament the catfish are judged by how bootyful they are. Catfish try to peddle their influence with bribes. Judges take the bribes to win. (The judge wins not the catfish) A booty search will let you look at any bodies booty on their public ledger. There you will find all their loony bribes and messages for influence peddling. (look top right in your account >balance > loony history) to see yours. We see that your booty is this big.
Bootymasters only punish the innocent such as the always innocent Praetorian Guard in our multiple systems of injustice. Bootymasters have been known to give winners of catfishing tournaments the choice of walking the plank to be eaten by sharks or being motorboated by the Bootymaster with a booby prize. Henchmen of catfishers get booby prizes and the elite ruling class get booty prizes. There are more than two systems of injustice for judging booty.
A skilled catfisher or mermaids can feast on loonies to make their booty bigger and afford the Genuine EPPS Catfishing bait! You have enough booty for open catfishing. Do you want to catfish in the open season or cut bait? (cutting bait is donating to any of our nonprofits)
Youtube, tik tok and other platforms pay you for content. Can you do much better here? How do we do it? What aren't we telling you? Should you attend Pirate School?

Venture into unknown shark infested waters?

A "brainstorming writing style" is combined with an "instructional writing style" in these definitions as you are on the ground floor helping to build this one of a kind community owned TV series.
Sometimes the same information is repeated just to give a slightly different slant to help inspire different comical versions.  Sometimes it is raw so that motivated creators can produce their own versions of instructional video for this site.  Seeing random instructions can be a hilarious part of building this adventure!
You only need this rough "brain storming" section if you intend to create storylines at the expert level or intend to be part of the cast or crew of the "Special Heroes" TV series. This information may be hard to follow as it randomly sets up the general rules of play, describes characters, inpires dialouge for scenes and creates the straight lines for comedy. 
Definitions

Get Loony - Click on your favorite Team and 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 state fair with a thrift 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. The pirate category is any type of pirate adventure.  You could 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)

THROW!!!
