Hi all.

My corpies and I were discussing the other day about missions and loyalty points.
Back when my main was a newbie I looked on the map and saw who would offer me missions, and did a few missions here and there for a few NPC corporations, until I found my first player corp and started missioning for the Corp they suggested.

As a result I now have various low level amounts of LP with Corps I no longer have any association with, and my loyalty points list is a bit of a mess.
I know that people have been writing threads asking for the ability to remove unused loyalty points since time began heh. The idea I hope to put forward is slightly different, and would allow the LP to still get used rather than just wiped away into nothingness.

I'm suggesting the ability to donate them to your player perhaps they could be used by the directors to help new players into the corporation, or perhaps being able to spend them on improving your corporation's standing to whoever the LP come from (could be handy for refining purposes, or say, offering jump clones to corp members).

Sounds like a plan to me!
I'm in the same boat when it comes to the loyalty points list.

Hm, yeah, maybe add faction LP to the player corp. and then they convert it. Like Joint Harvesting -> Amarr LP
I like the general idea of it

I'm all for this. It would be great to use all that LP rather than just have it sit there.

I love the idea.. but it might cause a problem with the way standings to NPC corporations work now.

The way it is now your corporations standards are based on an average between all the players in the corp. Adding this in could cause issues with calculations in that department or destroy the entire system all together.

It could be interesting to possibly make it so LP donated to the corp and turned into standing is added as a "Base standing" then the average standing of corporation members is added to the total. So lets theory craft this....

Corporation has 1.0 Ministry of War standing from LP donations
Player average Ministry of War standing is 4.0
The ministry of war standing for the corporation is thus 5.0

Theorycraft 2.
Corporation has 1.0 Ministry of War Standing from LP donations
Average player standing with Ministry of War in the corporation is -4.
The ministry of war standing is thus -3


Just a thought, anyways I like the idea. Would allow a corporation to have more solidification in standings with NPC corporations, but still keep it to the point where a Minmatar faction warfare corporation can't just turn around and have full jump clone capability and whatnot the second they drop from FW.

Overall good idea. I'd like to see some fashion of it implimented as I myself never use my LP and would rather donate it to the corp so they could put better use to it.

Prefer the "donate to your corp" option.

Would tidy up people's character sheets and so may even have a performance impact [/wishful thinking]

Directors could start paying members for LP donated. (no game mechanic required for this though- just look at the transaction history)
