 :P    BTW, James Baxter is already on the list.   Should I only post "new" names?

Carolyn - "one of these days" I will add your names into my list ;) ;D

It's up to you. What you are doing is good, but if you prefer to only list people not previously mentioned that is fine too.
These crew lists are a new idea and they are optional, so we are all figuring out how to handle them. Some people get really detailed and some people don't record anything.
I like to have each person mentioned at least once, and I can easily add links to other pages where the person is mentioned.
If you want to, we can come up with a new system to record more information. ;D

I like the crew list with links, and will be happy to post whatever makes it easier for you to maintain it.  Sometimes I "relist" a crew because I seem to remember a request (years ago) to post mentions of punishments, or other interesting info about the crew and figured this was the place to do it.  Other times, I just can't remember if I've seen the name already!

I think the key thing is to transcribe the details. The transcriptions will be 'permanent'.
The information here will certainly be useful for fellow transcribers and editors, but I don't know how long it will remain accessible.

How much you do is really up to you. You can just do the name and link (and even that is optional!). You might want to add the details only when they are especially interesting.

I wonder if "American Ensign" refers to the American flag. I would think that all officers would be American :-\

I don't record the log keepers, but this is the first I've noticed H. L. (or S., without context I'm lost with the L's and S's!) Chipman, for the 4 - 6 pm entry.
