The Encyclopædia Piratica is the team of volunteer players who, along with Flying Lab Employees, are responsible for all of the content on Encyclopædia Piratica. This sounds like a big task, but when every works together, responsibility for each team member is pretty small.
Generally, each team member will be responsible for watching over a small amount of content—usually whatever that player has created or edited.
