Being new and much less knowledgeable of factors that may have influenced people's own opinions. It could be said that I have a very naive view on the roleplay community here.

I've been here for a few years and I still feel like "the new guy." I wouldn't worry about it.

Your opinion is just as valid, if not more so (in my eyes), for this specific argument. As someone new to the community, you personally went through the processes of becoming acclimated and introduced to the lore, the RP, and the Caldari bloc more recently than anyone else here. What you went through and how is absolutely relevant information.

The biggest thing you (the collective "you") can do to kickstart Caldari RP is to do things out in space.  Obviously, I'm trying a new approach with Faded Light, and you have the traditional FacWar loyalist corps and organizations out there.  Apart from I-RED, in whatever state it's currently in, and the Heiian Conglomerate, I'm not really sure what other groups there are out there that serve to draw people interested in Caldari RP into their fold.  Arataka, perhaps?  Depends on whether Makoto and co. view it more as a Caldari or multinational group, I guess.

To that end, engage with each other on the forums, in-game, and try to bring fresh blood into the fold.  Don't be an asshole to the new people, don't hit them with a wall of lore and tell them to "memorize it by Saturday"... just be flexible, make RP fun for them, and do things in space.  Do this, and I'll bet that good things will come from it.

This pretty much the "recipe" for SFRIM.  Hope to see more Caldari rpers and good luck!

Overall, my opinion really isn't worth that much in this discussion, but I did at least want to point out that smaller organizations are, in my opinion, precious.

What makes your opinion worth less than anyone else's?

Speaking on the point of what Charles said regarding smaller groups, I have to agree that they should be cherished. Many of the serious roleplayers that compose stories quite well, I've found, lie in smaller organizations. My opinion is based on I suppose a "first impression" of the community; I've had more welcome and open arms as a new player from smaller groups than large ones.

This isn't the say that larger groups are necessarily bad, of course. Forgive me for plugging in the Alliance I'm a part of (IRED). But I know we try to create content as well. It's just a matter of if people actually take part in it or not.

The one thing I'll say about outposts is that they're a great defensive asset.  Case in point, I was patrolling Thursday night in the Worm and I got two Worms and a Breacher dropped on my head... or rather, they would have dropped on my head if they could have probed me down and warped to me directly.  Instead, they landed 100km off me at the outpost entrypoint.

Having killed (and apparently riled up) one or two of the people in question the night before, I figured it was highly likely the gang was formed to kill me, and upon maneuver when they refused to separate out in distance, I pulled range and left.  Had that been on a gate or planet or anything like that, I wouldn't have had the time I needed to assess the situation that I like.

Will we be more aggressive in the future?  Sure, if the numbers increase and we have enough manpower to do it.  For now, gotta maximize the odds of winning and survival as much as possible.

Or maybe we offer content beyond textboxes.

I will continue to point out that MITG as a whole is about as far from a 'Caldari' group as is possible.

There are Caldari members, but there's certainly no concerted effort to recruit Caldari roleplayers.

Very true. There's a habit of many ending up there, though, from what I've seen. Maybe that's just a hold-over from PYRE exodus?
