Here's an idea for a small but consistent isk sink. Billboard advertising!

Corporations should be allow to bid for advertising time for any stargate billboards. Each billboard should have 3 slots for auction each month (a slot represents a screen and title on the billboard screen rotation). The company that bids the highest for the slots should win that slot for a month. A small in-game text also appear below the billboard (like a label) that includes the corp message.

The high volume stargates billboards will obviously cost the most, for example Jita. I'm guessing 5 bil per slot. A company that wants to dominate the advertising at that particular stargate will bid for all three slots. The company that bids and wins the most for the slot can put anything they want on the billboard for a month (as long as it doesn't violate any obvious rules) including advertising, solicitations, war dec request, to bragging about kills, company news, etc. Each month bidding is performed for the entire month for the next months slot.

Heck, what would any capitalistic economy be without adverstising oportunity...

EDIT: Part 2
Extending the topic/idea a bit further. Adverstising can also be extended to instation adversting.

For example, in the Captains quarters of each station a corp can bid for "comercial time" on one of the player quarter's screen. The screens can rotation imagines (as they currently do), with one of the screens in the rotation a corp advertisement. The corp that can advertise on the screen is one that bids for it similar to the billboards above. Each station can have its on advertising potentional and again the larger volume stations (like Jita and Amarr) will generally have the most expensive space.

Advertising in general can be a good/steady isk sink.

HOW ABOUT YOU STOP POSTING IN ALL CAPS LIKE A NOOB. AND HOW ABOUT I POST AN ADVERTISING SUGGESTION IN THE MARKET FORUM IF A DARN WELL PLEASE. AND HOW ABOUT OLD IDEAS CAN BE GREAT IDEAS.

I remember in the first 3 years of the game the entire forum was lobbying for drone type diversity and it took the devs three years of nagging to finally implement it.

btw, what have you offered to any discussion except to be a useless troll?

This is a pretty good idea. It'd lead to hilarity at times, as well.

Imagine. A bored player decides to cover the amarr-jita pipe with 'GOONSWARM ARE GAY' for a month. Mass raeg and wardecs.

Explain how is this better than just dropping cans with offensive and/or propaganda messages on them?

Well it could be a matter of prestige - a sign of sovereignty over a particular system or route (as previously mentioned).

I actually think that charging ****loads of ISK for in-game advertising of in-game products and/or services is a good idea.

Filter to say The Corps Message of the day, or Something that Corp leader would have to Imliment with filers for such bad Thoughts....

2nd to that, A Reset of the Prices ie:
jita's Gates Might start @1bill bid in.
but once a say.. (5) bidding is complete the winning corp gets the Borad for remaining 30days but @day 25 the Price Resets to 1bill and Lets the next Corp have a chance.
If the same corp wants to bid again. the Prices starts @ +25% for each Month.

Only new to EVE so dont be to hard on me :PShocked
