@Blackd0g I would have to base it on the person I was speaking to, as anyone should but I don’t have an issue with people seeing my API as their CEO for a few minutes, obviously I have to be somewhat conscious of Mails due Operation Security in Nullsec PVP Alliances etc so there’s obviously limiting factors to that being a complete 2 way street, which somewhat reduces your options. Other things to consider is that as a CEO I’m a “public face” for my corporation so regardless of being able to see my APIs if I were to do anything shady it would become obviously apparent.
Plus - I’m smart enough not to discuss anything personal life etc or plans etc in game anyway due to obvious reasons, I’ve not had any mails sent / received in the corporation apart from things like ~ Buy orders / Orebuybacks etc and questions from potentital recruits (which again I would be dubious of sharing as those are conversations between a recruit who might be poached if I were to release it!)
With the above in mind, it really becomes restricting how much of an API I could actually share with a new recruit, to the point it would become pointless, alternatives however would be to message members within my corporation to ask how the corp is, how its run, what I’, like etc rather than the API. I do usually message peoples previous CEO’s and see if they left on good terms and use that more of a determining factor if I want someone, the API’s are really just more of a requirement for all large nullsec alliances, mostly these days for services.
BlackD0g if you want to message me in game about this I don’t mind having a chat and doing an interview etc however you want to put it across without an API (I never ask for those until I’m happy to drag you in), but we don’t actually ask for a “full api”, it’s still a tad intrusive however.
I like to think I am a Rare Entity on the Internet so thanks!
