JIMMYTRON Posted March 31, 2010 Report Share Posted March 31, 2010 [align=center]THE YCM'S BAND OF PIRATES[/align] [align=center]AHOY!! You think you like pirates? Well, you have come t' the right place, ARGH! ARGH, we'll be discussin' anythin' related t' pirates. That could be almost anythin', shiver me timbers! AYE, now we do have some rules:[/align] [align=center][spoiler= [b]THE RULES...GAR!![/b]]1. All other YCM Rules apply. If you're new and don't know them, I suggest you immidiatly go check them out in News. Violation in this club will be a ban from here, through you will be invited back after a week if you PM me again. However, 2 or more times of violation will be permanent.2. Plus the YCM Rules, no cursing, or in any way saying rude opinions. The YCM community seems to think that rude opinions are okay, but I personally believe people who used them are more noobish than anybody. Saying "you're not really good at card making" is ok, but "you're horrible at card making. Now get your filthy persence out of this squad" is NG. If you want to protest against this rule, don't even think about going inside this club no matter how much you may love vanillas. Violation of this rule is counted the same as breaking rules inside here.3. Anybody that joins must be someone who is willing to discuss the amazing topic of PIRATES4.

There will be members of the crew who will want to rank up, so if any of the qualifications apply to you...send Cap'n JIMMYTRON a PM. [spoiler= [b]THE RANKS[/b]]○ Captain: JIMMYTRON / Cap'n JIMMYTRON ○ Lieutenant: Barkura Kakashi / SanjiThe duties of the lieutenant were more or less to act as the captain's deputy. He commanded in the captain's absence, often took command of prizes, and during battle should have positioned himself in the forecastle while the captain was on the quarter- or poop-deck. ○ Master: N/AThe master of any ship was in charge of navigation and the actual business of sailing the vessel. ○ Boatswain: N/AThe boatswain (or bosun) was one of the most important men aboard any sailing vessel. He was responsible for "...all the ropes in general belonging to the ship: with all her cables, anchors, and sails; her flags, colours and pendants...". He was also responsible for making sure every man was correctly on watch and at his station. During battle it was a small group of the best seamen under the command of the boatswain and his mates (if he had any) who saw to the sailing of the ship while most of the crew worked the cannons. On many ships the boatswain was also responsible for discipline. In some ships the boatswain also took on the duties of master gunner. ○ Gunner: N/AThe gunner's duties included taking charge of all the ship's cannon, ensuring they were properly maintained and that the crews were trained in their use. He was responsible for ensuring all the gun ports were closed in bad weather and for making sure all guns were secured. In battle the gunner would often be near the helm, advising the helmsman on how to steer so as to be able to aim the ship's artillery better. ○ Carpenter: N/AThe carpenter was an officer responsible for the maintenance of the ship below the deck level (including the hull, decks, bulkheads etc), in the same way that the boatswain was responsible for everything above the deck. He was responsible for replacing damaged or worn masts and yards, repairing or replacing the rudder or any other timber which needed it and for stopping leaks. Carpenters were usually experienced seamen as well as tradesmen, and often enjoyed a similar rank to boatswains. ○ Mates: Any members can be this, new or old[spoiler= [b]LIST OF MATES[/b]]D!X / Nobeard the amazingEvil Hero Neos / NeosgarrrMachop / BlackeyesNígh₮ ฬαŁkεЯ™ / Night Walkershadow wind / JhonRandom Dude / GibbsLua / Lua ○ Quartermaster: N/APirate quartermasters often had more duties than their counterparts in merchant or naval vessels, and perhaps enjoyed more popularity with the crew. Where there is evidence of quartermasters having more power than one would expect it is in the nature of their being a representative of the will of the crew - it is not the quartermaster with the extra power, it is the crew themselves with the quartermaster speaking on their behalf. However, in general they did not out rank any other officers, nor did they have any real power or importance except under a very weak captain. They certainly were not second in command. ○ Pilot: N/AAn officer partly responsible for navigation, particularly in shore navigation. Sometimes the pilot was a permanent officer on the ship, but often was just hired (or pressed) for a particular piece of coast or harbour. ○ Coxswain: N/AA junior officer with duties similar to the boatswain. He was also in charge of the second largest of the ship's boats. ○ Sailmaker: N/ANot only was this man responsible for mending the ship's sails, but he also had charge of making and repairing flags, and often making slop clothing for the men. ○Doctor: N/AHe was responsible not only for the treatment of injuries but for seeing to the general health of the crew.
