    ähhm no.

    The last statement of the devs was (so far i know) that our threads are NOT a reservation. The tool will be early announced so that you can prepare you for it.

    The only way I see getting past this then is if the devs private messaged all leaders of Companys the tool and they could have it a day earlier or something? But idk I can see alot of Drama in WoR tbh, I already know of WoR drama and the game isn't even out!

    Dude, what about the Company post that Lyman has set up? All those companies that are listed in the beginning are the companies that have been reserved right? I'm not trying to say that I'm right but that's what I thought it was for. If your right then is Lyman wasting his time? And if it isn't a reservation, then I agree with Wildcat and that the devs should send out the tool to the listed company commanders early.

    Question for the devs, will it be possible to include custom imagery, like recruitment posters, icons, flags and all that sort of thing on a regimental front page/ application page or similar? Or is that to be limited to forum threads only?

    Was just reading some old posts, and as the company tool has been implemented to an extent already, I suppose this is old news. But I would like to comment about the voting to determine company command as referenced in this quote. As per an example pulled directly from A HISTORY OF THE THIRTY-FIRST VIRGINIA REGIMENT VOLUNTEERS, C. S. A., I'd like to include the paragraph that actually references the Company in which my Great Great Grandfather eventually enlisted, as follows:

    Company E was enlisted at Monterey, Haveners Store, and Camp Bartow by Felix H. Hull. A few were enlisted by Captain M. Karicofe. Hull served as first commanding officer but was transferred to the brigade quartermaster department where he died on October 31, 1861. First Lieutenant John M. Myers was elected captain on November 23, 1861, but was replaced by Lieutenant Samuel A. Gilmer who was elected captain in the elections of May 1, 1862. Captain Gilmer resigned in January 1863 and was replaced
    by Lieutenant Jacob C. Matheny. Lieutenant Matheny was promoted to captain when he assumed command. In the early months of the war the company consisted of 8 officers and 68 men.

    source: Muster and Pay Rolls, Thirty-first Virginia Infantry Papers
    I'd like to recognize that on various dates, in this case November 1861 and May 1862, that this company held at least 2 different elections in respect to replacing commanding officers. Thought that some might find this information useful. The first chapter of the History of the 31st, entitled "FORMATION AND ORGANIZATION", is ripe with references of such elections, 7 to be exact. They seemed to have been prevalent at not only mustering, but also many reorganizations.

    Here is an excerpt of each, these are for various Company's within the Regiment:
    In May of that year the company was reorganized and William W. Garnett was elected Captain.
    The Reverend J. E. Mitchell was commissioned captain, but resigned on June 20. In July he was succeeded by J. S. Kerr McCutcheon, who was elected captain.
    First Lieutenant John M. Myers was elected captain on November 23, 1861, but was replaced by Lieutenant Samuel A. Gilmer who was elected captain in the elections of May 1, 1862.
    In the elections of May, 1861, First Lieutenant George F. Thompson was elected captain. He was captured in 1863. First Lieutenant John W. Bosworth then assumed command..
    In the reorganization of May 1862, he was elected lieutenant colonel and became second in command of the Thirty-first Virginia Regiment.
