The Glimmer of Light Yppedia page.

Post  Piratus on Wed Jul 15, 2009 4:42 am

I decided to stop spamming the hoist the Hoist the colors! - Q&A thread with this and make it a new topic.

This topic is for the discussion of the Glimmer fo Light history and it's yppedia page. Allthough I have been a member since almost day one of the crew (I think I joined a few weeks after the crew was created) I can't make an etire page based on my own memories.

I have just visited your page on Yppedia and I have noticed that in the first sentence Swesvempa already wrote that the name was changed on May 31. This is most certainly the right date, since is the one I recorded too. Why did you have the impression it was wrong?
Oh, I must have missed that. Thank you! The date has been corrected.


Besides, I don't like what you wrote about Thewandererr, maybe you didn't realize that your words cast a bad light on him and I feel that it's a bit unfair since he was a gentleman after all. If you want I would be glad to help you writing the article: I know a lot about your history. Wink

I don't remember much about Thewandererr to be honest, maybe because of different online times. That where the only things I could think of writing about him, please help me out.

Great idea, Piratus. I am very glad to help you.

Piratus, on YPPedia wrote:First Captain
The crew began with Swesvempa as Captain and his good (real life) friend Swedempa as his first SO. Not long after creating the crew they introduced the game of Puzzle Pirates to another friend who registered under the name Piratus, who later on would become the captain of the crew. Together with some trusty players they only met in game they controlled the crew and made it prosper. A rename was made on the 31 of May, the crew would from that day on be the "Glimmer of Light" because that name would fit in better with the overall atmosphere of the flag.
Don't you want to be a bit more creative here and come up with some fancy story? Personally I wouldn't mention any fact about real life (what is RL after all? Our pirates live in a fantastic world, they know nothing about RL). So ok to mentioning Swes and Swed being friends, but I would omit the fact that they introduced the game to you... they rather pressganged another landlubber and corrupted his pure hearty making a dreadful pirate of him! ARRRG!

Here you can talk a bit about the Swes' past, adding fancy details. Like I told you before, they used to belong to Fratelli della Costa, of which the founders of the Knights of Saint George were also members. That's why when Swes came back to the game decided to join Ascalon straightaway... it happened in the very same day, since they were able to achieve the required fame within only one day.

Another interesting thing you might want to learn about Swes is that he applied twice for a Royal position. At that time in fact these spots were given away upon an application that was screened by the Royals. He applied first on May 26, but it was rejected, then once again on June 2 and on June 10, its second application was approved.
In its application he mentioned also the highest number of member the crew had until that time: 37. Their fame was Eminent and I remember in May-June they were very active. Then they became less and less active, till they went dormant. The crew was for long time without a captain, till Thewandererr upon Frame's suggestion and my seal of approval took the helm. I'll continue the story later, when I'll be back home and able to check my logs I might come up with more datas and dates.

Ok, checked my logs.
Swesvempa last logged on July 18 , 2008. That means he went dormant 10 days later, on July 28.
Thewandererr became captain on September 2, 2008. So the crew was captainless for over one month.
Swedempa officially announced his retirement on September 6, 2008.

As for how Thewandererr became captain, I remember Frame and him came to my home asking me, "as the head of the flag" (so he addressed himself to me), if I agreed on making him captain... since it was Swesvempa's crew he didn't want to jump over him. I gave him my blessing, as Swes wasn't actually playing in the last 2 month.
As for the circumstances leading him to leave the crew, I guess you are aware of them.

Captaincy of Glimmer of Light

Swesvempa
26 March 2008 - 28 July 2008

Thewandererr
2 Septamber 2008 - 2 November 2008

Piratus
6 November 2008* - onwards

* I'm not 100% sure about this date, but it's when Frame told me she voted for you to become captain.

More or less. He left the crew with Yersunshine after an argument about the hoist the colors mission. I really don't remember much in detail.

And that is very good info on the captains, I think the date when I became captain is correct.

I wish to learn more about the crews coat of arms.
Was it Swesvempa who created it? I didn't have a chance to see it until Pishk made "The Royal Court" link.

Nope, it's made by me. I chose Sweden's colours as a homage to the founders and the sun as a reference to the light. If you have a better idea, we can change it.
