This is just a passing thought, and I wouldn't be surprised if it had been mentioned somewhere else before this, but I'll put it out there anyway.

POSes send out low-fuel mails to directors when they get to within 24 hours of being out of fuel iirc. I haven't owned a POS for a few months, so I'm a bit rusty on the subject. So theoretically if you are part of a large alliance or if your corp has alot of POSes, your directors probably get spammed with low fuel mail on a regular basis. This has got to be annoying and hard to keep track of, so I think a basic POS manager interface is in order. If it works out, mabye some of the guys that manage this stuff by hand will have more time to do fun things in the game.

The interface would be accessible only by those within a corporation that have been given the roles to access it.

This interface would have the following tabs:
ArrowFuel status
ArrowSov ratings
ArrowDefenses
ArrowEngagement Status

Here's a very basic example of the tabs that I envision:

|Fuel Status\_________________________________________
Location: | Time until out of fuel: | Status:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
<system/moon> | <days>, <hours>, <minutes> | <status symbols>

____________/Sov Ratings\____________________________
Location: | Current Sov: | Time until next lvl:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
<system/moon> | <Sov Rating> | <time>

_________________________/Defenses\__________________
Location: | Shield/armor HP | Fittings:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
<system/moon> | <shield%>,<armor%> | <cpu%>, <grid%>
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|- <weapon battery> | <shield%>,<armor%> | <ammo%>
|- <defensive array> | <shield%>,<armor%> | <online/offline>


_________________________________/Engagement Status\__
Location: | Status: | # of Defensive Operators
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
<system/moon. | <status> | <# of players using POS weapons>


The interface would have to have a button much like the market and wallet on the left of the screen so that the POS manager(s) can be alerted when a mail would normally be sent. Added functionality could be included in this interface, but for now I'm proposing the idea as a way to keep track of what could easily be an overwhelming flow of information.

Please reply with your thoughts.

Mmmm...ASCII art.

Er, wait, what was this about?

Sounds nice to me, but then I only refuel our POSes once a month. All 3 of them. Yeah.
