    It's been mentioned that some people do not know the order of the ranks we are using for game leaders...
    CO is Commanding Officer and is the top dog so to speak...
    XO is the Executive Officer and is the 2nd in command.

    I remember the paperwork for administrative applications having the reverse posted on them, but they were sent to me via PM on the old forums so I have to assume you are right since I have no proof to the contrary.

    Of course then there are people like me who have been alternating back and forth so sometimes I have to stop and think about it. Wait, which am I today? :p

    I think the problem people have with the order is they associate XO with XoO, so for some they think that comes first.

    It's always been common sense to me. Never understood why others misunderstood.

    Technically the new forums don't have rules as such.
