Most everybody uses Local as a way to see who is in system. People have been screaming for removal of local for years but the problem is the loss of intel that it provides would create all kinds of headaches.

My solution - an auto scan on all ships. Unlike D-scan that requires manual effort and provides too much information auto scan simply scans an area the moment you enter and provides an acurate count of all non cloaked active pods in a system. (This includes active pods in a station. ie if you are online your pod is activated)

Technacally this would almost be the same a local except everytime a cloak is activated it flags the server to remove them from the list. When they decloak the flag is lost and it returns them to the list.

People have been screaming for years - But they may not necesarily be a majority...
Removing cloakers from local could ofcourse be very interesting :-)
If this would happen I would suggest a delay to cloak so people don't go invisible the split second they activate the module. Let the ship be targeted and visible for 3-5 seconds before the ship is fully cloaked.
