Our stores are only open to Elites, not to everyone.

[6/24 23:12] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 126254 (48978) Radiation Damage to Tactical Cube. Hehe. Suck it Borg!
[10/8 15:47] [Combat (Self)] Crystalline Entity deals 98082 (147136) Kinetic Damage to you with Warp Core Breach. WUT? I blame Kurland for this and all other problems in STO.

No. For three reasons:
  1. We are not 7/11
  2. We did the work. If they want access to the store, roll a Ferasan, join the fleet, and contribute.
  3. I don't think it is allowed anyway.
My two slips. Alecto can confirm these feelings if he wishes.

Well, keep people away from our provisions. Those are hard to come by.

This is an issue the Masters will need to discuss. We certainly don't want to be dismissive of anyone, but the limitations of our fleet were set up specifically to prevent new players from draining our bank account.

Until then, if you want to invite people to buy things using their own supplies, go ahead. But be sure to charge and collect a confiscatory admissions fee (like if one project needs 200 Warp Coils... make them cover it).

As long as you only invite them to the starbase/embassy map, provisions will be taken from their fleet, not from ours. The only item they can't buy are ships, but you can invite people so that they use our facilities level with their own provisions. I would encourage such a policy since it never hurts to help others.

what happens if the person invited to the starbase/embassy map is fleetless? where do the provisions get removed from then?

If someone has not fleet then they should not be able to buy anything that requires provisions.

they can probably still buy the boffs and doffs as they dont require actual provisioning although ive not tested it, but they do need fleet credits (which you need to be in a fleet at some point to get)

First of all I'd like to ask that either another Shadowcat Master take over updating the google docs roster or that a lower ranked Shadowcat ask to assist, because I'm going to be taking a short break from STO and will be playing DayZ for a while with my local friend.

@Valen (Shadowcat Master) has prevously asked if he can invite people to the fleet to use the fleet stores but chanrge them, for exaple if they want to purchase a fleet ship, then sure but they pay us a few million EC.

Otherwise the answer is no, each player is expected to work for it, unless they can afford to just go ahead and give us a few million EC for a quicker option.
