I think, corp standing should be it's own entity ...

You create a corp and it will start with the standing you have as CEO. But simply by joining the corp, a new member will not alter the corp standing in any way. Instead, any action of your corp members which affects standings will increase/decrease both, theirs (+skill bonus) and the corp standing (+some new leadership skill bonus ) separatly and immetiately.

I'd guess this is more realistic, since the reputation of a corp tends to be based on the corps history, not on that of it's employees.

So anything you do while in a corp you do on behalf of that corp and you will ofc affect your corp's standings, and if you leave that corp, the corp standings will stay untouched. On the other hand, new members will not **** up corp standings solely based on their past.

Edit: The bigger the corp, the smaller should be standing increase/decrease value of the corp.

Edit2: Better, yet more efford to implement: let corp standings start at zero and incorperate the CEO's (+ maybe director) standings towards a particular faction into the corp standing increase/decrease calculation.

I guess this would then create a market for idle corps which have built up standings in the past?

Well, i can't see a big problem with that atm.

It's kinda like T2 BPO's - a relict which still circulates, but does no significant harm ( well .. a topic on it's own ); but imo, since the playerbase of eve seems to grow continously, these artefacts will lose influence.

Could also be dealt with by slowly decreasing standings in idle corps - eg the longer nothing happens with corp standings, the greater some daily decrease. CCP has proven to do quite OK with calculations here and there, i am sure they could come up with something if really needed.

Anyhow, I think it would solve far more annoyances than it would create.
