just a thought, how about linking each title to a wikipedia page about the title?

What kind of information would go on each individual page? --Barrister 19:03, 26 August 2006 (PDT)

well, we probly couldent do it for all the titles, but for example linking the quatermaster title to the wikipedia page on what a quatermaster is,we wouldent actualy need to make the pages on wikipedia, as i checked and it has a page on most of the titles anyway. --Zirnitra 11:48, 27 auguest 2006 (PDT)

If a page contains just a single link to Wikipedia, it probably doesn't merit a page on our wiki. I'd be more willing to see the titles on this page (Title) contain links to Wikipedia. --Barrister 15:42, 28 August 2006 (PDT)

Can we put a description on some of the titles?

I searched Midshipman and it redirected here. I'm trying to see if any privileges are given to a Midshipman.

There is no standard description for all of them. They mean different things to different crews/flags. No extra privs are given by the game via titles, but it may mean extra responsibilities depending on the crew/flag's definitions. --Guppymomma 13:16, 5 June 2007 (PDT)

OK that answers my Question. thanksAqu 06:00, 30 August 2007 (PDT)

are these exclusive?

That is, can there be only one crew member at any given time holding a specific Title?

Either way, this should be mentioned in the article. (I.e., "titles are exclusive" or "duplicate titles are OK".)

Changes And/Or Added Info Request

Would it be possible for the Title(s) that only apply to FO & SO ranks be added?

Or if I could get a Private Message/Reply with the info, I would be happy to make the changes, myself?

Personal Reasons:

I have placed info in my crew page to create a Chain of Command.

Through research of the web of the real definitions of some of the titles, I have found that Steward, Boatswain, and Bosun are good candidates...

Having no current members of the correct rank(badges), and none of the Greeters have an answer, it seems, I can not find out what ranks are required.

This would be greatly appreciated.

There are no titles which are exclusive to ranks above Officer. The original set of titles predates even the SO rank (and the Captain could not title themselves back in those days). --Thunderbird 20:39, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
