Signal Cartel [1420.] was designed from the ground up for peaceful explorers. Dedicated to the highest ideals of exploration, our corp culture is one of wanderlust, camaraderie, helpfulness, respectful behavior, and peaceful intent. We seek to provide our members with a friendly, nurturing home that includes great benefits and opportunities for learning, fun, and profit. Co-led by Mynxee and Johnny Splunk, Signal Cartel is part of the EvE-Scout Enclave alliance (along with our sister corp, EvE-Scout). Thera is our HQ and the home of our hearts, although most of us don’t live there.
Our most important defining characteristic is our Credo, which is the foundation for our culture and which all members are required to adhere to:
Signal Cartel is a service corporation to all of New Eden. In this role, members are encouraged to treat all players with respect regardless of affiliation. In challenging situations, our goal is to look for a graceful resolution and set an example of dignity and friendship through our actions.
We embrace the attitude of a true explorer: we are friendly to others in our travels, neutral and never initiating aggression, and endeavoring at all times be perceived by the New Eden community as a non-threat. Although we never intentionally seek to harm, we may defend our friends and our ships. In suffering losses, we respond with good cheer and shed no tears. In this way, we aim to be recognized and respected by all across the cluster and left in peace to do our work.
Among our own ranks and with others, we are patient and generous with knowledge, ideas, and experiences. We foster a mentoring culture by answering questions, freely sharing experiences and learning resources, and when possible offering rookies one-on-one tutoring.
Specifically prohibited with your in-alliance character: Piracy, baiting, or scamming; initiating aggression on other players’ ships, pods, or deployed structures; sovereignty interference; participating in NPSI fleets; aggressive actions in support of PvP fleets including boosts, cynos, bumping, or target intel; use of mobile siphons; corp or other theft; placing bounties. Note: Ships, wrecks and drones abandoned in space are considered salvage and may be harvested. Abandoned ships may not be destroyed.
Our focus is exploration-related activities (although many members supplement that with industry, trade, missions, or other Credo-compliant ISK-making activities). We are often war-decced, but that doesn’t affect explorers much since we typically roam far from where war deccers are. Our corp activities are Alpha-friendly and Alpha-inclusive to the extent possible.
Our members range from highly social fleet fanatics to solo wanderers. Average player age is 35-40; most have families and busy lives. We don’t have day-to-day activity requirements, but do expect our members to log in their Signal Cartel characters regularly and play to avoid being kicked for inactivity. Comms and presence on Discord is optional (FCs may require ability to listen and/or speak on comms); registration in our auth system/forums is required; posting is highly encouraged.
Leadership encourages our members to pursue service-oriented initiatives to benefit the alliance or community as a whole, as long as those initiatives align with the spirit and intent of our Credo. Nothing is more important in Signal Cartel than our Credo; violators are subject to immediate dismissal.
