It's not 'let's all pull together and get this done', it's 'I'll fill the easy stuff right after I post the Project, you losers grind out the Fleet Marks for me'.
This is exactly what I ran into on Tribble.
I joined a testing fleet with one other dude (essentially). I would bust my hump on Fleet Marks to push a project over and when next project would come up and he'd snap up all of the easy contributions, leaving me yet again to grind Fleet Marks.
I was about to post something on the feedback forums asking for more ways to gain Fleet Marks (like doing Patrol Missions), but they shoved this thing to Holodeck right after Tribble Weekend. So, I let it slide.
This thing went to Holodeck WAY too soon, IMHO. Shoulda took another week of feedback gathering and adjustment, TBH.
This is where Fleet Politics come in -- since the officers (read: fleet ranks with the right permission settings) are able to see the projects, Fleet Leaders, and the fleet as a whole, may want to agree on setting some ground rules for donating. I'll pass along the feedback, but I think you answered your own question in your post
Cheers, Brandon =/\=
I want you to remember this moment. I am a paying customer, and I am about to walk out the door.

I have the modules, zen, and fleet marks. I lost.
How the hell do you solve that problem?
I followed the rules, and I ended up losing.
I am a casual single-player.
When I gave it a shot at joining a fleet, I ended up losing out at the end.
I was basically told, "You get paid in fleet marks, so you should be happy with just getting them."
You guys gave power to one group of players, and you ended up alienating another group in the process.
If I have the money on the table (while meeting certain requirements), how did another player just determine how I use my resources?
Why are other players (and gates) standing in the way of me making a purchase?
