Announcing the Yar Button!

Attention Message Board pirates!

We have a new feature to announce here at Pirate101.com . . . the YAR button!



If you like a post or just want to say thanks to someone for making a helpful post, please push the Yar button at the bottom of the message to "Like it" like a pirate, YAR!

A post's "yar" count will display in the top right hand corner of a post, and you can even check to see how many times a person has received a hearty "yar" for their helpful comments.

Try it out and let us know what you think.

Thanks!

Quick question Jack: Will there be a way to keep track of our own yar's and of seeing who yarred what? Just wandering and thank you to whoever thought this one up and set it into motion. It is great

People will be able to see how many times they have been "yar'd" by clicking the "yar count" under a message board user's name in the left column, but you won't be able to tell exactly who has been giving you "yars" from that list. However, if you click the "Show Yar" history directly under a post that has been liked, it will show you who likes the post.

I wonder who will have more Yar!'s, Jack or Ratbeard?

Just remember who sets up the loot tables.

Not only you have introduced Yar button, but the Nar button too LOL! Now I'm confused though. I have to click Yar in order to say Nar? Or it's just Yes and "erase that Yar"? Now could you please introduce "Jar of Yum" count? I'd like to gift jars of yum to postworthy posts? :D!

Thanks!

If you click Nar after you Click Yar, it just removes the Yar. Whoa that was allot of Yarring and Narring. I am going to have way to much fun with this. ;)

I agree, it will help promote positive feedback Thank you for the Yar button.

YAR!! Thanks for the awesome feature; it was cleverly thought out to have no 'Nar' button (as in the dislike - the unYar option is great!). It supports the "Say something nice or say nothing at all" teaching. Plus, it's a lot easier to Yar and get on with things instead of typing out an entire post saying that you agree or like a post.

Nonetheless, I do agree and like the post. (Viva los piratas!)

AH so it was yer, Paige Moonshade, who stole my Yar?! :O I see you put it back.. But I'm gonna keep my eye on yer! Yar, my precious, yes my precious yar.. No one touches my precious.

PS: I have no clue why this was quoted... It's my Yar that's gone amuck I think. How do I "Unquote" this?

PPS: Just something I noticed. When I post about this trend in Facebook, the thumbnails show a Wizard101 icon or your avatar, One Eyed Jack. Why Wizard101? It should show Pirate101?

My guess it was quoted because you used the quote button to reply to the thread instead of the blue Post Reply button at the bottom of the page, and unfortunately we lack a way to "unquote."

The Wizard101 icon is troublesome for us as well. Although it's not ideal, you can opt to not display an image when linking.

Just a thought, maybe you should try putting a P101 icon next to the W101 on the bottom of the page since FB might choose W101 logo since it's the first "unattached" picture it can use.

Ah, then we do need a "unquote" just in case :(

It's a bit strange to me that you set up the loot tables to give away stuff when you in-game gripe about letting go of gold piles and loot LOL! You seem happier when you have it all to yourself Guess we did a good job reforming you.

I wonder... If the loot tables dropped good loot probably +5% more; would that individual who raised the loot tables have enough yars to set up a YAR'd Sale? XD
