I've never really longed to be a CEO in this game, despite all of the years that I have been playing. Still, I've always been interested in what it takes to run a corporation and all of the work the leadership has been doing for us "grunts." So I've taken advantage of the downtime during the summer and the mini-break my corp is taking to experiment in creating my own. Maybe it's just an excuse to play with creating a website and a forum (first time setting up a php forum) but I find it interesting. I've also already gained an appreciation for the CEO and Directors of AU-F just for dealing with the corporation management screen and setting up the titles.
At first it was just a little bit of an experiment but I do know that I have plenty of advice to share with new players and the summer lends itself well to "management" for me. Meaning I can log on plenty but maybe not devote a solid period of time to roaming or ratting. Because of this I believe I will keep the corp open for a while and hopefully recruit the next batch of pilots to bravely wade from hisec into 0.0. In the meantime perhaps I can share some knowledge and help them make a little isk.
