Give Permission to Upgrade Rank
To upgrade to a higher rank, you must recieve permission from someone of a certain rank, who certifies that you are able, willing, and competent enough to do the job.
When giving permission, please act responsibly, and only give permission to upgrade to those that you feel deserve it. Permission may be given by anyone of the needed rank, no matter what ship they are on.
Landlubbers have always automatically given permission, and the role of a Mayor in upgrading rank can be assumed by any of the Ministers, the Mayor, or a General Superuser.
