I would like to suggest a new feature to EVE for the CSM to suggest to CCP. A key point of the feature is to add to EVE content and to give the players more control over the EVE environment, even if this control is merely in communications. This should greatly improve accessibility to the EVE universe, help to make the EVE universe more fleshed out, and thereby enhance player satisfaction and new player retention.
I am calling this a System bulletin board and the idea is that it would be accessible in a drop down menu which would call up the bulletin board for the system one is currently in. The board would be for in game content only and be used to inform travelers/ inhabitants of current goings on in the system…for example…that a war is taking place between corporations there or that it is plagued by gankers or what frequent pilots are trustworthy or untrustworthy or that there is a gate camp active in a neighboring system.
This System Bulletin Board would be run by a player who would be called a System Administrator with his one power being the only person (other than CCP moderators) to administrate/edit/post on the board. The title could be granted by vote or by the first player to claim the title (one system per character). Other rules could include immediate loss of the position if the administrator fails to make an edit in a one week period. etc.
Comment is invited. The usual shooting down of any idea offered is expected, complete with the usual accusation that this all over the loss of a ship.
