It would be nice if we could chat with people we are aligned with perhaps a command /aroyalty or /abroadcast

also i wish we could demote people it is a pain having to expell someone and rehire and re promote if they abuse officer privledges... what can be done?

We'll forgive you for not searching this time, as searching seems to be booched.

There have been what feels like several thousand requests for this...

I don't remember much about those threads, and since search is booched...

Anyway, Faulkston?

Chat to senior officers in flags I'm allied with:
http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=103177#103177

The problem with allied royalty chat is that if the recipients try to respond over the same channel, they will potentially be talking to a different set of allied royalty (unless they share the exact same allies as the original chatter). Allied royalty broadcast would have a similar problem if anyone broadcast in response.

And why are you not able to demote officers if they're of lower rank than the officer doing the demotion?

Faulkston,
cursing the lack of search. Have trawled and found linkies.

This has the same problems as the oft-suggested hearty chat. Every flag has different allies.

Only Fleet Officers can truly abuse their priviledges (there are some possible abuses for regular Officers, but you can't clean a ship out unless it's yours as a regular Officer). And for reasons that should be obvious, Fleet Officers should not have the ability to demote other Fleet Officers. Senior Officers already have the ability to assign rank regardless of crew politics, except if the original or new rank involves SO or Captain. So I don't see where the problem lies with this.

 
And why are you not able to demote officers if they're of lower rank than the officer doing the demotion?


Only Senior Officers and the Captain can assign rank. If anybody else tries, it posts a crew issue. This is for promotion and demotion.
