Swabbies: Post 2013-09-16 Update Reply to this Post

I couldn't think of a more appropriate place to put this, so I put it here. Feel free to move it if necessary.

Forculus, in the release notes, wrote: 
Upon entering a Flotilla, Sea Monster Hunt, or Blockade (non-event), the swabbie count will drop back down to 4


Prior to the update, all ships (except sloops) had 4 swabbies, while sloops had 3. This led me to wonder if you could keep 4 swabbies in a sloop in these environments, or if it "drops back down to" 3.

I soloed a sloop into a flotilla to test this. I can now confirm that only 3 swabbies are allowed when you enter a flotilla on a sloop. I assume that this would apply equally to the other types (SMH, non-event cade), so I updated the Swabbie YPPedia page to reflect this.


Semi-related point:
Quick Definition: I will use the term "Swabbie Crew Cutoff". Hermes defined the "Swabbie Crew Cutoff" as "for every player you fill your boat with over the swabbie crew cutoff, a swabbie will be booted off". (I would add the note that this only applies to yellow-named pirates, not greenies).

Forculus listed the Swabbie Crew Cutoff numbers on Ice at the end of testing. I talked to Clotho (and posted) about it. I have two questions about this Swabbie Crew Cutoff:
1) Is there anywhere (on the forums or YPPedia) developer confirmation that these numbers, from Ice testing, did not change, and thus remain in the game? Or do we need to test?
2) I believe these numbers should be included on YPPedia. If so, where? (Swabbie page makes sense, but it could also be useful to add it to the Ship Template.)

To clarify - I am capable of doing this, but I am asking for opinions on how we should do this.

Edit: Rephrasing, changing words to numbers, links.
Edit: Adding "Crew Cutoff"

I'd say test it and yes the Swabbie page is the appropriate place.

It's also worth noting that some of the swabbie ship transport numbers have changed as well.
