DF2014 Talk:Mayor

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I had over 50 pop but didn't get a mayor until appointing a sheriff. As soon as I unpaused, the sheriff promoted to captain and the expedition leader was replaced. Uzu Bash (talk) 18:47, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Coincidence. I never appoint a sheriff, but I still get a mayor. :) --Button (talk) 19:45, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. I had 55 population when my mayor was elected... still don't have a sheriff.--Loci (talk) 21:10, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Haven't tested this in the latest release, but in most of the 0.40 versions, you'll immediately get a mayor if you have 50+ beards and change any position on the nobles' screen. Otherwise you have to wait until the next regular election (17 Hematite, usually in early Winter, too).--Larix (talk) 00:35, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Population requirement?[edit]

Do you need 50 citizens to get a mayor? I.E. If my fortress has more than 50 long-term residents but less than 50 actual citizens, do I get no mayor?
