Re: longest islands held
I worded the OP so that island transfers don't count as the island being taken. The same with flag renames. Personally, I would argue that "blockades that are really just island transfers" shouldn't count, but such blockades are often not clear cut cases, so trying to exclude them might be very messy.

My OP stated "since colonization", but I don't think that is anywhere near as important. Technically, my original definition includes all the newly opened islands, but I would consider an island that has been held since three weeks after colonization to be fa more important/interesting case than islands that have been held for just a few months.

*shrug* split hairs anyway you want. :-)
Algol can not assert the truth of all statements in this post and still be consistent.
