So, over the past few days in our public channel, we have a few inquiries regarding our situation and wormholes.
Initially, the concept behind the corporation was to eventually get a presence in wormhole space, but this would be best case about 30 days after the corporation opened. More likely it would be about 3-4 months from inception. However, after chatting with corporation members and seeing how frequently they were going exploring in wormhole space, I thought that we could accelerate that plan.
So, we spent a fair amount of time on New Years Day exploring for empty wormholes where we potentially plant a POS. After a few hours of looking, we found one. J143202
Now, I had plans with my wives family, and I headed out for most of the day. I asked the corporation members online to watch over the hole, and get a good feel for the hole (number of pilots coming through, levels of sites appearing, etc).
I returned home in the early evening and got the intel report from our member. I was located in a High Security trade hub, so I purchased a tower and fuel, and headed out the 9 jumps to the entrance hole. I jumped into J143202 and warped to a moon. I decloaked, launched the tower and told the tower to anchor.
"You cannot anchor control tower as your corporation is not 7 days old."
Grrrr. I then remembered that I had read about this change in patch notes, but that was like 6 months ago.
So, I guess we need to wait now for another 48 hours for the 7 day limit to expire.
In retrospect, this was a good thing, as this particular hole is not the original type we were looking for. This gives us some additional time to scout out a hole and potentially find one which will work for us.
