    Default Jingle Me Timbers! - Ends December 9th



    You're a pirate sailing the seven seas...

    It is Christmas day and your crew wants to Celebrate Christmas! However, you are near the island full of treasure!

    The question is...

    Would you let the crew have a day off and celebrate Christmas OR will you command them to continue their quest to the island, not knowing the dangerous that lie ahead?

    And why did you choose that option?

    The best answer will win Christmas VIP and everyone who enters will receive 100 forum tokens

    Good luck ye scallywags!

    I would of course let them celebrate Christmas.

    When working in a team environment where I have a crew of people who I need to manage; it's important to earn their respect for me as a leader through positive behaviours as opposed to out of fear. This ensures a happy working life for my crew and will raise their morale along with loyalty for me and one another as it will create bonds between my crew outside of the 'working' environment.

    This approach is unorthodox for a pirate, but I'm willing to give it a try, if not then I'll be forced to make an example out of a few crew members as they walk the plank.



    I deserve to be alright, I deserve to sleep at night
    I'm my closest friend, I remind myself again
    Better treat him well, cause he's with me till the end

    Having worked in retail for the past four years, I have not been able to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family due to having to work long hours. I would definitely let them celebrate Christmas, because I know how important holidays are to people. Christmas is 24 hours, there's always a lot more time to continue the quest the next day Everyone deserves a little break every once in a while!

    Everyone gets Christmas off! Life is too short not to spend important moments with the ones we love, so they can spend Christmas with their families. However, you better believe we're heading for that treasure the day after Christmas!!

    Hopefully they'll be thankful they got to spend Christmas with their families!

    Go for the treasure! Motivates them by saying, those treasures will be divided equally and then, they will be celebrating christmas all year long. Plus they really care about money, I know that for sure. Most of them are a-holes without a good attachment of the family. More money, more booze, more girls! Now, gooo... to the treasure and let's be rich forever boys! Rrrrr
