The /fbroadcast command, or flag broadcast, broadcasts a message to all flag members. Jobbing pirates are not considered flag members and will not receive the broadcast unless they are also permanent members of a crew belonging to that flag.


Flag broadcasts have the following syntax:

/fbroadcast <message> (/fb)

Flag broadcasts can not be combined with the three modifier commands /think, /shout, and /emote.
