    What happens if the Colonel (or whatever) suddenly goes inactive? A friend to many of us in this community passed away and his company is forever now in limbo in the Company Tool. There ought to be some way to protect companies and any larger organizations to come from this sort of situation.

    Colonels could get voted by other leaders, but also being able to get demoted, by starting another voting after a certain time.

    Probably having multiple roles at a certain 'level' would mean continuity is assured.

    In the current CT members who have admin (minimum role required is the same or lower) can remove players if they have been inactive (for example).

    I do believe if registered regiments fall below a certain level, someone else can pick it up however if some fill a regiment and never show that will leave it frozen in time. (a cleanup was proposed a while back)

    A few of my biggest grievances in the current deployment are :


    • It show the soldiers name in the roster, but players usually go by their nickname so you'll have to open up enlistment papers sometimes to find out who that person is.
    • Promoting, changing role, assigning platoon can't be done in one take, when you press to confirm it executes directly making you return to the roster.
    • Currently there is no relationship between CT & ingame mechanics.
    • The minimum required rank is on another screen (maybe admin stuff can be reworked) and it confuses owners.

    I'm tellin' you guys, voting for leaders works and if it's enforced by the Company Tool itself, even better. Elections would be automatic every 3-6 months, or could be called by a majority of players. I say players because enlisted and NCOs should have a say too, just in the extremely unlikely case that all officers go MIA.

    I am all for freedom in options(voting or other ways) as long as there is a option to (automatically) remove the leadership positions due to inactivity and each company in the group keeps their freedom to stay or go as they please.

    Hinkel,

    I think your initial instinct to first address the battalion/Regiment tool first was correct. Lets get that working before we move on to the Brigade and corps levels.

    That being said if it is operating on a database query code, the simplest way to accomplish implementation would be to allow the owners of the mustered companies in a regiment to select themselves or a contemporary via a drop down selection for the position of Regiment commander. Let the selection process take 24 hours and the selected person with the most votes by the company commanders gets the position and then they can appoint a major and a Sgt major as those are already in the system.

    To address the concerns regarding inactive or toxic individuals in the regimental leader position you use the same selection process to remove them at any time using the 24 hour selection process. If a majority of the mustered companies don't select (abstain) or vote for the incumbent to stay it is a non factor. That way it always requires a majority of the mustered companies to have their say.

    This has been brought up before in a similar discuss and should be implemented.

    How regiments select their leaders can be done internally through an election or just through the system I just described. Either way it requires people to work together to maintain a system and prevents rogue actors from destabilizing it.

    I think if you do get busy with it than go all the way so we can test all the pros and cons.

    This is a good point. Only let's not limit this to just Colonelcy positions. There should be a mechanism in code that will allow for ownership of unit pages to either clear the members of said unit, or allow for newly elected replacement leaders to assume editorial rights to the unit's Web pages.
