On that link I see a tab with Shanghaied Mates and then a list of some OM names, what does being "shanghaied" means. Couldn't find anywhere a translation for that word (silly me)

Shanghai is a term originally for people who are, basically, kidnapped or coerced into working on a ship. Very similar to press-ganging. The meaning has changed somewhat over the years to generally mean grabbing someone and taking him somewhere else. In this case in specific, it refers to people who had worked on YPP who now work on something else OOO is doing.
