Help! Is it possible to get my crew back? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

My account was recently deleted due to inactivity, and the problem is that I was the Captain of my crew when this happened. Now, my crew has no captain, and every single one of it's members are dormant. Is there any way to get the crew back?

You should have planted an alt S.O. in the crew beforehand.

Since the captain was deleted and taken out of the mix, it is possible for politics to switch to Oligarchic once a vote is proposed. But someone needs to be around to propose and vote, and that means at least one of the SOs needs to come out of dormancy. Otherwise, you are stuck.

Also: next time, buy some doubloons and save your account. It only takes USD$2.95.

Not anymore.
It used to be that if the Captain was dormant and a vote was posted it would go from Autocratic to Oligarchic, but was changed in release 2012-03-21
"Crew politics will no longer change automatically if there are any remaining dormant voting members."

According to YPPedia "If the captain leaves an autocratic crew, the crew automatically becomes oligarchic."

Due to all your possible voting members being dormant, even if it is now Oligarchic, you can't get anyone to vote so doesn't help.


The only thing you can try is to petition an OM and see if they are willing to help. If they are they will want some sort of proof that you are the same individual. Are you still using the same account? (Note: It is your pirate that gets deleted, not your account).

Month bump, but it might still be relevant :P.

The captain in this case was deleted, not dormant, so the crew politics would have changed if someone had tried to propose a vote (if they hadn't already changed due to the deletion).
