We know the lack of administration features for linkshells was a major concern in version 1.0. In A Realm Reborn linkshells will focus mostly on being a way to chat with friends and Free Companies will have the features that players have been requesting for linkshells.
It will be possible to remove members and change authority levels even if the Free Company members are not logged in. We are also looking into a feature where leadership will be passed to another member of the Free Company if the leader does not log in for a certain period of time.

Seeing how the UI in ARR has greatly changed, I would assume that the LS commands will also be upgraded and more organized.
Will we be getting a feature like /lmes? and I think that the leader pass should have the feature to add a person to take over untill they return. ie vaction or have it passed down per next highest rankin the F.C.
