CCP should charge money to review custom corporation images

Most of these corporation logos are weak. I’d say like 1/50 are pretty cool and the rest are cringe, and of the cool ones, like half of them are some variation of the skull motif, so they’re usually not original.

Mining chat says that if we let everyone have custom corporation images, space will be full of flying dongs, but there’s an easy way around that. Why doesn’t CCP just charge money for the review process for corps?


Have you followed the twitter saga lately? Money is not a deterrent for people to swong their dong around the internet. Musk had to learn this the hard way. If people can get a dong into the corp logo, they will pay for it. If you think otherwise, you would be the perfect CCP employee because you are just as naive as many of them.

That’s only partially to blame on the severe lack of available patterns and combination options. I know a number of corps that were able to create rather intriguing corp logos with this 20 years old, never expanded selection of simplistic patterns.

Before we get alliance level custom logos (even there, the manual review has allowed rather ■■■■ logos into the game) for corps older than 1 year, CCP should add new patterns to the corp logo creator so that we have more choices there. That’s easier and far less prone to exploitation and hassle.

CCP should charge money per post you make.

You did read the OP’s post yeah? The problem with twitter was there was no review process. People paid for verification, without being verified. OP isn’t asking for non verified corp images… he’s suggesting people pay money… to allow for verification.

To which point… I agree with OP’s suggestion. With one addendum: “If you send us anything pornographic, we’re going to ban you.”

What a novel idea. Never heard of.

Isn’t there a rule against IRL politics in chats and on the forums?

Have you read my post? Then you’d have noticed that I pointed out that the manual review process for alliance logos does not prevent objective crap from entering the game. :wink:

No, there is not. Not to mention that this point would not even violate such a rule. Firstly, because this has nothing to do with politics. This is about a scheme from a company to display a badge that is supposed to carry a certain meaning. That important feature was completely perverted by making the badge available for purchase. Secondly, what the OP suggests is the very same thing, as CCP’s manual review process can only be described as “lacking”.

I did read your post, and that’s not the argument you made before. The closest thing you said to that is …

There was no review process for twitter (ie: verification) … so comparing that to paying for a manual review process is not the same thing.

As to the new argument. Then maybe we should prevent people from having access to custom alliance logos? no? Well then your argument kind of falls flat.

If there’s anything objectionable that’s found afterwards, the alliance logo can be disabled. This same process can be applied to custom corp logos.

Fair enough. The point stands, however. I don’t see what Twitter’s corporate fails have to do with politics.

It is a politically charged topic due to the stupid culture war… but your specific point wasn’t.

Certain twitter accounts are being brought back online when they were previously banned for hate speech among other things. Most notable of these is the former President of the United States’s account, which makes this a politically charged issue. One side feels that they have been unjustly targeted by twitter, and the other feels that twitter is choosing a side by unbanning the accounts.

Did I talk about the unbanning of questionable accounts? :thinking:

As far as I can see, I only talked about the badge issue because only that is pertinent to the topic. If you want to talk about other issues with twitter, be my guest. But you have to start your own topic and stop putting words into my hand that I did not write in this topic here. Thanks.

What one sees as hate speech doesnt mean it is.
(Which is protected under the 1st amendment)
What one finds offensive, doesnt mean it is.

While true, that twitter, fb, etc are private companies etc, they are not bound to the 1st in regards to banning someone or not, its obvious they have admitted to hiding or censoring stories or folks for whatever reasons, that lean more to one particular side politically.

For example, while we may not be at war with amarr, i think any who believes in their higher power and enslaves others, are nothing but bottom feeding pieces of monkey crap, and should burn in their pods.
