2. Your Canon Company may not own other Canon Companies as subsidiaries unless they are directly referenced in the Wookieepedia as being owned by that Canon Company and each Canon Company Subsidiary must have another character not owned by you labeled as it's CEO/Director and must have their own Company submission.
2. Your Canon Company may not own other Canon Companies as subsidiaries unless they are directly referenced in the Wookieepedia as similarly-named subsidiaries of that Canon Company. Such subsidiaries do not require their own company submissions, but must be named and hyperlinked in your Canon Company submission.
Rationale: Far as I can tell, this rule exists because of a unique set of circumstances a couple of years ago. It's nothing but an inconvenience now. Many large companies in canon did all their business through multiple subsidiaries, and many of them are in use here on Chaos. Here's an example situation.
Sue has been writing Kuat Drive Yards for two years and the company is at Tier V. Sue loves making Kuati ships. Bob, Jim, and Sally do not like Sue. Under the current rules, they realize they can submit Kuat Vehicles, Kuat Leisure, and Kuat Systems Engineering - all wholly owned by KDY in canon and in what Sue's been writing. They set themselves up as the new KDY. Under the current rules, Sue can't do anything except enlist her friends Joe, Bill, and Lucy to submit and run those subsidiaries, unless Bob, Jim, and Sally get to them first. Under the current rules, Sue's KDY has zero claim on any use of Kuat Leisure, KSE, and so forth and so on.
(I've been asked more than once to be Lucy. This stuff isn't hypothetical.)
Under the proposed amendment, Sue would be able to include integral, similarly-named subsidiaries in her KDY submission. Bob, Jim, and Sally would be free to submit other canon KDY subsidiaries with their own identity/culture/aesthetic, like Rothana or Ubrikkian.
Perfect solution? No. Better than what we've got? Probably, yeah. Sure as heck simpler.
Jamie Pyne - You've done a lot of company stuff, and I know you're all about streamlining. Thoughts?
