Congratulations Capt. Stabbin, we've selected you as the next News Scout!

BUT!!!  HOLEY TOLEDO!!!

We're STILL looking to train more News Scout as soon as Capt. Stabbin is savvy (Grimmbeard has been promoted to Blog Editor already), so for anyone still interested it's recommended to remain highly active in the LEGO Pirates Forum over the upcoming weeks.

We chose Capt. Stabbin because he:
  • is highly active in the LEGO Pirates Forum
  • has very good English written and communication skills.
  • has zero warning points and interacts well with other members.
  • has a high level of maturity
  • has a piratey username and avatar/sigfig - not essential, but a favourable bonus.
So if you can aspire to the above, you'll have a higher chance of being selected as the next recruit.

We'll be keeping a sea eye on everyone who has applied, but if anyone has changed their mind just let us know.

What exactly would a "bloggable item" be? An impressive MOC? Lego News?

Yes, both of those. Upon being chosen you'll be trained by none other than Mister Phes, he'll teach you everything we are looking for and where to find it.

Three applicants!  That's more than we need.

Ok...  Here's a little challenge for you all:

Search the Internet and find something to blog then post it in this thread.  It could be a MOC, Brickfilm, drawing, etc.  just so long as its LEGO Pirates related and something we haven't blogged before.

Set sail lads!
