I think ACL Bookmarks are awesome for people like me with an ever increasing amount of them. With ACLs I can sell access to my bookmarks, which made me think of the amount of work that’s needed once a sufficient amount of people start using them.
ACL Bookmarks will allow selling access. A market around bookmarks will emerge eventually. I’ll hopefully be one of the first offering access to his bookmarks and I’m definitely not the only one with a really nice collection of them.
A subscription mechanic would allow offsetting the obvious beaurocracy behind this.
It’s basically a check “if player paid sum, then allow access to the configured bookmarks, else remove access to bookmarks.”
You might think I’m lazy, but you have no idea how many bookmarks I make per week. Organizing and selling access to them isn’t an easy undertaking. Having different customers wanting access to different sets of bookmarks makes this worse. I’m not saying I want all the work taken from me, but I still need time to actually play the game. Burning out on “beaurocracy” is neither a myth in EVE, nor a laughing matter.
This market will definitely happen. The only thing that prevented it from being a thing already, is the fact that one can only copy 10 bookmarks at a time … and that’s one of the most mind numbing things I’ve ever did when I copied just 500 of them.
