Here on the Dirty Skull, we pride ourselves in having a good time with some laughs.
We have a pirate code to ensure that this chat is kept as a welcoming, non-judgmental and non-confrontational ship, for all those fellow pirates out there, traversing the seas of Twitch.TV.
Please abide by our Pirate Code so we, as a crew, can sail the seas aboard the Dirty Skull with ease.
This community encompasses those of all ages, which means some of your fellow pirates are on the young side. To ensure they, and you, have a great time in chat, we ask that all pirates keep to a PG16 standard when chatting away.
To ensure clarity and avoid confusion, we have compiled a list of words HERE that we consider to be inappropriate for a family-friendly chat; this includes any racial slurs, homophobic remarks and F-Bombs.
Please note: This rule remains in place REGARDLESS of any in-game content, streamer comments or RP situations. This also includes any unlisted variants of the listed words.
We may be pirates, but that does NOT mean we support software or game piracy. We believe game developers deserve to be paid for the hard work they do to provide us with the content we enjoy, so please respect our decision.
All talk of software/game piracy is STRICTLY PROHIBITED within the chat.
We respect your right to free speech, but personal issues/conflicts should be resolved within your own personal messages/whispers, NOT twitch chat.
The moderator team was hand picked by the Captain and fellow moderators to ensure a fun and peaceful chat, so please respect their rulings. If they tell you something, please listen and adhere to it.
Please note: This also includes letting the moderators do the modding. We appreciate your want to help, but when it comes to dealing with those nasty pirates in chat, please let the mods do their job. This saves any possible confusion for your fellow pirates and allows the mod team to do their job efficiently.
Posting any kind of spoiler (true, false or jokes) will result in a time out and possible ban, on repeat offences.
Our illustrious Captain is grateful for any hints and tips you wish to provide, but he wishes to make his way through the games he plays on his own. Unless he requests otherwise, please keep backseat gaming to a minimum.
As everyone has their own opinions, some are bound to clash and cause issues within chat, so it is preferred that every manner of this talk is kept out of the chat.
We respect everyone of all languages, however, the Captain and the majority of the chat can only speak and read English. Thank-you for understanding!
The Kraken lurks in chat and will automatically delete any messages that exceed the spam and caps limit, so watch out for the Krakens' tentacles.
If you have a link to share, ask for a permit from one of our mods, otherwise the Kraken will swallow you whole. This does not include links to clips, which ARE allowed.
Please note: This rule does not pertain to our Dirty Skull subscribers, although, any unsavoury links WILL be removed.
We are a friendly and welcoming community and as such, DO NOT tolerate the bashing or insulting of other streamers and/or viewers. Please respect everyone while in our chat.
The Captain and the crew of the Dirty Skull are already very generous when it comes to games, game keys, twitch subscriptions and other giveaways, so there is really no need to beg/ask for any of those things. Doing so will result in your message being removed. Repeated offence will result in longer timeouts.
Unless given direct permission from the Captain or one of the mods, advertising will result in a timeout. This includes another channel, website, YouTube etc.
"Metagaming is when game information, outside of what is available in a game, is used to give a player an advantage in-game." -Urban Dictionary
Posting any kind of metagaming information (true, false or jokes) will result in a time out and possible ban, on repeat offences.
We all know life isn't the fairest of games we've ever played. We are all just trying to beat that final boss, to move on to the next area. So, be respectful of your fellow gamers, and keep your complaints to yourself.
If you feel you have been banned unfairly or have an issue with someone/something in chat, please contact a moderator and they will handle it personally. Please include your Twitch username and explain your issue.
If you have an issue with a moderator, please send a private message to BurkeBlack* or our head moderator, Jstubbles. Please include your Twitch username, the Twitch username of the moderator and your issue with said moderator.
All decisions are final. Thank-you for understanding!
