Infinite Spacelines will be a well connected IPO whose primary purpose is really to serve other IPOs. Let’s face it, an IPO can only go so far to provide all its own needs until some of their members just throw all the papers all over the place, screaming, “Screw all this.” That’s when they call Infinite Spacelines.
The membership in Infinite Spacelines may have 2 or 3 different levels. Administrators will work to oversee this service corporation as a whole. There will be the service providers, who actively go out and negotiate and initiate the service to be provided. These two levels of membership will not be of particular better position over the other.
The third level will probably be the largest, consisting of unaffiliateds who receive services, to small upstart pilots who want to join a community that will give them a boost while providing a little back in a less dedicated role to the Spacelines. Also, any legal form of account that wants to do accounting with IS within IS in efforts to better another IPO, would be here.
The game is not near release, so this is subject to change and just a rough estimate.
Hauling, Brokering, fair rapid Trade, accounting, crediting, financing (based on history of two previous services). Banking is not expected, because this game isn’t expected to become laborious in carrying liquid assets. Also, probing, building, scouting (not really extended exploring, but maybe freelancers), and more.
Also, the most important things will be trying to minimize misunderstanding between law abiding entities (to reduce conflict and promote growth). However, people will have their fun, and IS will still seek to profit from it.
There is no current dedication to making IS “happen”, as this game is still beyond the horizon for existing. But make no mistake, IS will happen; and when you need the lowest price option to just get something (legal) done and are just sick of doing it yourself, IS will be waiting for your incoming communication.
Standing and Intergalactic affairs
First and foremost, Infinite Spacelines will do its best to maintain positive standing with law abiding entities; and this might be stretched a little, within reason, for the sake of misunderstanding. For example, if a major IPO (who therefore may engage in much activity with IS on individual levels) takes some sort of lawful hit due to an accident or internal discrepancy, such things will be overlooked and business will continue as normal.
Beyond that, business with outlaws is permitted only as long as not objected to by law abiding allies.
At no point will IS ever engage in war. Sometimes a lawful war is initiated between two lawful parties who invariable and occasionally use IS services. The directive will be this: If a demand is made on IS to cease in administrative and service member level interaction with your foe, you are also demanding that we cease such activities with you. If the demand is made from either side, service and administrative levels will cease with both parties.
However, IS will not be held responsible for freelance, and upstart pilot interactions (unless they are engaging in unlawful acts, which should be reported IMMEDIATELY)
It should be known that administrator level members will be expected to act with extreme professionalism and politeness. If at any moment, you have an unprofessional and/or unpolite encounter with an administrator member, contact a director immediately. They are not expected to be timely in their responses.
It should be known that service level members will be expected to act with extreme professionalism AND punctuality. If at any moment, you have an unprofessional and/or late transaction with a service member, contact a director immediately. They are not expected to be polite, albiet they are required not to be rude.
While there is not much to lose for a Freelance member, please report if they are beyond humorously abrasive or fail to follow up on any agreement.
