If you need to ask questions like that, i'm afraid you shouldn't be making new corp yourself yet. Better join an already existing ones and get some more expierence first.

Never let anyone else in your corp touch your bpos PERIOD, unless you trust them immensely. I have heard of several corps crippled because of too much trust from within. also, don't hang on to dead wood, if a corp member isn't pulling their weight, ditch em, they will only be a hinderence to you.

Looks like somebody needs to bump up thier language skills... Razz

I thought of making my own corporation also, but decided the best course was to join another, learn from their mistakes and think of a good approach before hand. This way, when I do make my own, I'll have allies and friends in game I think I could trust.

Running your own corp is not an easy task. Recruiting takes alot of time. Most of the isk you earn will probably end up going to support your corp for awhile. Members will gripe at you wanting different ship, skills, and isk. As your corp grows, you best find someone else to help you run it. Organizing members is no easy task.

Have you ever been in a corp before, I suggest you try that out first to see how some others are ran before you try your own.

I thought about eventually starting my own corp when I first started eve, but I joined a corp to see what it was like. Now I help run it, I would not want full power or start from scratch, as helping keep an existing corp running smothly is enough of a challenge.

If you're making a three man micro-corp, all you need is the 1.6 mill incorporation fee, a station with a free office space, and all your members in the same system so they can join up. Give everyone Director rights, (which you can do from the corp members screen) then get to work.

However, if your dream is to become a bigger corp with some weight in the world, you're going to need a much better foundation. Running a 3 person corp is different from running a 20 person one, which is a whole different animal than a 100+ person one. The more members you have lined up before you start your corp, the easier it will be to keep it growing.

Joining an existing corp is probably the best way to go. Learn how a corp operates, why people join them, and what they expect from their leadership. Idealy, you'll have worked for a number of player run corporations before you start your own so you have a good base of experience. You'll know other players and have built up trust and respect, making them ideal first recruits.
