    • Like I said on Elder scrolls, Its random, and for shorts amount of time.  I come, do an edit to keep my counter up, and leave to what I need done.  If I end up having a projet that will take me some time I will let you know, But the real world is asking a lot of me right now.

    • Nice.  One less thing to worry about.  I am still trying to fix the update to the mainpage, Whenever I add it it effects everything else and I don't know what to do.  I asked a friend on Elder scrolls if he could help, but know reply.  I will keep working on it though. Then I will move to stubs.  

      Also, make sure articles are not written in past tense.

    • Character articles are supposed to be in past tense because the articles are looking back on what they did during that season. Episode articles in present tense.

    • Ok then, I will revert some of the edits I made undoing this, Then make sure Character articles are written past pense...

  • Should we make articles on locations that were only mentioned in the series? Port Royal, for example, has been mentioned numerous times.

    • As long as they where written from the shows perspective.  To often an article gets written and it has little to do with the show. If we wanted a template, all we would need to do is remove the image box. In short, yes, I think we should make these articles. I think we should also talk about making articles for some of the mentioned characters, like Barlow's husband.

    • Ah yes, I used to be a vegetarian from four to fourteen (my parents converted, so they never bought meat, except for fish). But yeah, I could never imagine life without sweet tea.

      At least there's still McDonalds...

    • I am more of a taco bell man myself.  A lot of Mcdonalds cook their fries in fat, so eating them really isnt the best for me.  That and I love Spicy food more then burgers.  

      We where talking to some of our neighbors, and we tried to explain how to make sweet tea (they somehow never got the memo).  When we told her to put the surgar in while the tea was hot, she said "So its like hummingbird food?".  For the most part, these are not bad people, they just don't like the same things I do.  I am hoping to one day return to VA, and play Magic with my friends while eating good pizza and sweet tea.

  • Sorry to keep messaging you on your wall, but I'm eager about expanding the wiki and don't want to make mistakes and be counter productive.

    I'm interested in making articles about various ship types here. I don't know if Stevenson's word is at all canon, but I assume it is until the writers say otherwise. To that end, Stevenson said somewhere that the Walrus was a converted British merchantman, if that helps.

    Historically, Vane's first Ranger was a brig, but, again, as you said, history generally doesn't apply here.

  • Charles Vane Background Information:

    In his youth, Vane was a child laborer, held captive by Albinus. At some point he escaped from captivity, but due to the fact that it is unclear when exactly he escaped, it was most likely as a young boy.

    At some point after his escape, he became a sailor for one of Lord Archibald Hamilton's privateer captains, arriving in Port Royal sometime during the War of the Spanish Succession (1701–1714). After the war, he began serving under the infamous pirate Henry Jennings.

    After the war's end, Vane, like many other former other privateers, found himself out of work and headed for Nassau, where he became a pirate, joining a growing community that comprised of other former privateers such as James Flint and Benjamin Hornigold. It was there where he met Jack Rackham and his lover, Anne Bonney, who joined his crew, the former becoming his first mate and quartermaster.

    Sometime in-between the war's end and early 1715, Vane managed to capture the Ranger, which he made his flagship.


    What do you think?

    • Mentioning Queen Anne's War would be speculation upon speculation. A) It'd be speculation that this character was in it, and B) It'd be speculation that the real Charles Vane was in it. IIRC, there is literally zero history of the real Charles Vane before he shows up in Nassau.

      I mean, I think it goes without saying that most pirates DID serve in Queen Anne's War at some point, especially a former Royal Navy officer like Flint, but since it isn't mentioned in the show, it'd just be speculation. Your contributions are great though. Glad to have you on board.

    • I've been a pirate nerd ever since my dad brought home a book called A Pirates Life for Me when I was three. I'm a walking textbook as I have been told, so any info you need on piracy, feel free to consult me.

      Sorry if that sounded grandiose, but I LOVE pirates and I LOVE the show! I'm so glad it was made. There's a lack if pirate shows on TV.

  • Are we sure that Flint's first name is James?

  • First, all the character articles should be named after the character' personal names, not after their titles. Therefore, it should be Charles Vane, Flint, Hume, etc., and not Captain Charles Vane, Captain Flint, Captain Hume, etc.
    Second, the pre-1715 backgrounds of the historical characters. Since the biographies of some of the series' historical characters are well known, we should include them in the articles, or at least mention what they were doing before 1715.
    Third, all articles about the characters, ships, locations, etc. that appear in the series should be written from the in-universe perspective. Therefore, for example, the article on Billy Bones should begin like this:Billy Bones is a pirate who operated in the Caribbean during the early 18th century, most notable for serving as a boatswain of the pirate ship Walrus under Captain J. Flint., not like this:Billy Bones is a main character in the Starz series Black Sails.
    And fourth, this wiki needs a clear set of rules so the editors would know what to do and what not to do.

    • nomination are harder for smaller wiki's, no idea why, just are from what ive heard. Huge wikis with large amounts of editors can do that. But smaller wikis have a slightly easier time with self-nomination.

      Weather or not its true, ill let people nominate themselves here if they feel they can do the job.
