TLL captains

Sorry if this is a dumb question, and if it's none of my business, just say so - I remember that TLL used to hold periodic elections for the captain's hat. Has that changed? Korr's been captain a while. :) If that has changed, it may be worth noting on his page. (Korr was so cool, we superglued the hat to his head!) *cough*--Zava 06:28, 18 September 2006 (PDT)

I'd never heard of actual elections- although our periodic changeups probably looked intentional, most were due to captains leaving for real-life duties (Tealbeard, Kathe) or other goals in the game (Scarymuffin). In a way, that succession of captains being away has lead to the current governmental style of our crew, which I think of as "democtatorship"- we'll debate anything vigorously, and then the captain will make a final decision loosely based off of that debate. Oddly, it works. Let me know if you have any other questions! My next project will be to wikify a few other crewmates who are missing, but it's a matter of finding time to get the data I need on them.

Interesting stuff, thank you! I should go through my logs from when I was queen; I'm sure someone from TLL told me that you elected your captains. No matter, really. :) Amusingly, OTR functions much the same way.
If you'd like, you can copy the fancy bits to your own talk page. I copied the code from Yaten's page. If you got really into it, you could make that widget blue and yellow. ;) --Zava 13:59, 18 September 2006 (PDT)
