Maby it should be on this page how long the cooldown period is? I would add it myself, but I haven't timed the period. --Kinocha 15:36, 4 August 2006 (PDT)

If unsure of complaints
The post of Bia that is linked also states that if players are unsure whether to complain, that they should, as it will just be ignored if it isn't a valid complaint. Should probably add that in here somewhere. --Thunderbird 13:21, 4 May 2007 (PDT)
Complained pirate must be online ?
It looks like a pirate must be online or have been online recently for a complaint against him to succeed. This would explain the not-so-helpful error I got (can't find pirate, make sure spelling is correct) and the OM answer quoted in this forum post seems to support the theory. --Alfwyn 13:18, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
I've noticed that the chat that is put up when one clicks the button on the General Help UI seems to updates itself every several minutes but it's not on here and I'm not sure how to describe it.... Gunnerfreak on Cerulean 18:40, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
