So as it turns out, the CSM-CCP minutes from the last trip to Iceland are out.

I found following quote:
"Quote the dev (CCP Tuxford): 'I can do it in less time than it takes to talk about it'"

Well, that sounds great, right? I decided to go onto Sisi and have a look at some of the new changes. I went to the corporation interface and saw that the UI was revamped slightly and the Dividends button was moved.

I threw 6 billions into the master corp wallet of mine and tried to pay them out. Guess what..

It hasn't been changed yet. Crying or Very sad

Dear lovely Tuxford, when will you fix this issue? There's 16 days till Dominion hits us. Seeing as the CSM would never spend 16 days discussing a single issue, it would appear that you could actually do it in time for Dominion, right? <3

Also, following is of interest:
"Contract volumes are still in backlog, and are going to be reprioritized"

I have a 40b isk dividend to pay in a few weeks, please don't make me split that up.

- any sisi build higher than 114272 (next week) for the max dividend (now a float)
- the courier contract max volume should be 981,250m2 on sisi already

Dear Chronotis,

On behalf of the Minmatar Freigther pilots, I ask you to reconsider the limit.
People will just start making > 860k m3 contracts, possibly 900k "because it's round".

Guess what, we have all to retrain Caldari freigther V now else we can lose on the best courier contracts?

I'd have preferred a limit to the minimum common denominator tbh

This is the point that the CSM brought up. It was suggested that the max limit would be a Minmatar freighter with Level 0/1. But level 5 could work as well, but still limit people with "just" level 4.

Or it could be 981,250 for private contracts only. Would that maybe work?

Or maybe those other pilots could not train an inferior race.

Let the market sort it out. As someone who's likely to set a large number of these contracts, I'll do whatever is most timely and cost-efficient. If it takes too long for my 981,250m^3 contracts to be filled, I'll set slightly smaller ones (864,000m^3 = Fenrir IV). I personally think it would be more annoying for an arbitrary limit to prevent people from using the full capacity of a freighter, especially when they've devoted months of training to it.

Besides, please don't tell me you bought freighters just so you could run courier contracts in them? Wink

No, but since while AFK freighting I netted some billions, it did not stink so bad as a wallet round up.

The Courier changes are great! Following is an overview of freighter capacities, to get an idea which volume-demand can meet its freighter-supply more or less easily.
Racial freighter 4 is going to be 864k(Fen), 882k(Prov), 900k(Obe), 942k(Cha), so one can expect that contracts in this range will get accepted quite fast. I have no clue how common freighter V is?

Now that's wonderful idea! Why should I be allowed to set up a courier contract of a size I wish if YOU won't be able to accept it? Oh, wait, wasn't it my own business wether I want to make MY courier contract appealing to YOU or not?
