DANGER: Ravagers Salvage is in danger of being dissolved because the number of active members fell below the required minimum. The grace period started today leaving you with 13 day/s to resolve the issue.
The faction has 5 members in it, which is the minimum requirement to my knowledge.
If where you click "Faction Status Overview" if it says 5 active members, then what happened was someone didn't log in, became inactive at 17:00 game time, then that inactive logged in later when you had a chance to check the faction count.
If it does it again, while the "Faction Status Overview" says 5 active members at 17:00 server time then you can bring the ASims into it.
Ulrike i think i remmeber hearing (someone can correct me if im wrong) that it doesnt remove you from the faction straight away so the leader cant tell you died by watching memberlist, but it has a random delay before removing you
Yes, dead characters definitely continue to appear for a while. Not sure if it's random or contingent on a specific factor. Either way, the specific cause can probably be sorted out by an asim who can look up the status and activity of the actives and solve the mystery. That said, they may not be able to disclose the specific reason why one of the members isn't counting towards the active member count, especially if it involves a death, but it's at their discretion.
