Acting 1st Officer Poll for Chapter 1

Postby jedion357 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 7:56 am

What it says:

Players can vote and discuss who should be acting first officer and that choice is announced by the captain as if she chose it.
There are five of you active right now but if there should be a tie I'll cast the deciding vote (most likely will flip a 2 sided die).

You get 1 vote, can change your vote while the poll is running, and the poll runs for 4 days (sorry need to have a decision in advance of the next turn).

Ike Clanton it its.
He is now acting First Officer

Question= which is more appropriate:
1. a brevret promotion to Lt JG for the duration of his stint as acting 1st officer or...
2. just a courtesy promotion ie being called Lt. even though he's still technically a midshipman?

He is quite able to assume a leadership role to "get the job" done so to speak but prefers to be "one of the guys".
No offense Alyssa.

I was thinking that Courtesy promotion was the right way but it suddenly occurs to me that he can be referred to as the exec as well.
