Hmm. Alright lets give this a go and see if I can cover all your points
For starters, I agree on the alt thing. People give me ■■■■ for not having a hundred alts. The only reason I have an alt at all is from when I lived in hisec and needed a neutral hauler. Havnt really touched the thing in ages, and never paid for it at any point.
As for content, we do run pvp ops, as in roams. Mostly small gang, though we also do some larger fleets occasionally with nearby allies. On that vein, we are actively looking for active FCs, while we have a few newer ones and some of our leadership are fine FCs, we have found that we spend too much time on the logistics to run regular fleets, so you would have a job waiting for you if you joined us and had a serious interest in FCing. You would, as you say, be expected to prove that, but that basically amounts to roaming in non-blingy ships at first, which should be perfectly reasonable.
As for direction, our objective is to take sov the right way and build up ourselves through our own worth. We have no interest in being handed space, paying for the right to squat on someones lawn, or joining a bloc. We will find a system we can hold, we will take the system, and then we will expand from there. If that isnt a meaningful enough purpose then I dont know what is. We are currently living in providence while we recruit, and hope to take advantage of the chaos of lifeblood to go take some space.
Id like to think our doctrines are effective, they have worked for us in the past quite effectively, though if you have recommendations you are certainly free to speak up.
We do not have a freight service at the moment, but that is only because we live in providence. We can certainly help you move your stuff if needed, but we have nothing official as of yet, though we have in the past when deeper in null so we certainly know how when it becomes necessary.
We do primarily use teamspeak for our in game communications, however, and heres the one real rub I see with your requirements, we do use slack as an out of game communication tool. We’ve found it to be a great community builder, as well as a tool for leadership to discuss things without needing to all be online, as it can be used on our phones while at work and in college classes where applicable. If that is unacceptable to you I apologize, but it has served us well thus far.
Hopefully that one caveat alone isnt enough to dissuade you, however if it is I will not try to convince you. I will leave my full post linked here if you would like more information. If interested feel free to evemail me, which I will respond to more or less all day from my phone if not online.
Hope to hear from you soon, and hope to fly with you soon after, good luck on your corp hunt regardless
