During our latest recruiting event, a number of new members were inducted to the fleet. Welcome aboard to all of you.
This recruiting drive also highlighted an issue when signing up new members. We had a number of people that accepted an invite only to gain access to our fleet assets and then leave.
As you all know, it has taken a lot of time and effort (And in some cases "real money") to get the fleet to the position that we all enjoy today.
Now that we are nearing Tier 5 Starbase, our fleet may potentially attract players that want to take advantage of our assets and then leave. With this in mind, @Ekchua, @Comanche and myself have had a discussion on how to still attract new players but also protect our well earned assets.
From this point forward, it is now a compulsory requirement for ALL new members to sign up to our website using the same user name as their in-game "@" user name. Applications that do not comply with this instruction will no longer be approved. The reason for this being implimented is that we have found that people who are just interested in joining our fleet to "raid the stores" are reluctant to sign up to the website.
When new members are recruited they need be signed up to the website and the Bushrangers chat channel.
