I did some Google’ing on this subject prior to posting this and frankly I dont really find anything that actually deals with the topic.
If this has been in discussion before, and I did not find it, my apologies.
IMHO I feel that a characters employment history should have 2 options, 1 - make public, and 2 make private. Both are simple and self explanatory so rather than blah blah too much about the reasons for each setting lets go one step further.
I should not be able to see some random pilot’s employment history, how could I even know this information in space? Who would even provide it to me in space? This information should be secure … to a point …
When joining a corporation or alliance, most of the time we are required to provide a full API. This is where the two suggested settings are null and void once the API is provided.
This idea does not require miles of coding or hours of development … 2 options, “Make Public” or “Make Private”. Its done with other profile settings; why not provide this option for employment history?
Good idea? Bad idea?
