COMPLETE - Official request for Atlas's Children to recognised (18 May 2021)[edit source]

I would like to humbly request Atlas's Children be officially listed as a recognised Company, having now completed the necessary five star pages. Please let me know if I need to make any further edits or additions. Right-Fish (talk) 18:28, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Have reviewed your pages and headquarters page, and all appears in order. My main suggestion would be to create a page for Busu 69/I6, as you have it listed as your headquarters. Have added the AC to the Company page as requested. Welcome! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:20, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Official introduction from Atlas's Children and request for advice (16 May 2021)[edit source]

As the founder and Chief Missionary of Atlas's Children, I would like to cordially extend our greetings to all those in NMS civilised space. I am in the process of gathering the necessary information to lodge an official request for recognition, but as I am simultaneously learning how to edit the wiki please bear with me. However, before going too far I have three questions to make sure I am on the right track, in case I need to change course.

1: The system I'd set our headquarters up in was in fact discovered 2 years ago by another explorer on another platform. The planet I have used is my own discovery, and I am confident that the system is not claimed by any other community as the system is not on the wiki. I would not want to accidently imply any connection between the original discoverer of the system and Atlas's Children, but I hope I may claim this as our HQ. Can you advise how I should upload this to the wiki?

Since the system is not listed as part of another civ anywhere that we know of, you should be able to claim the system and planets for the AC. However, indicate on the star page who the original discoverer was, and on which platform (there should be a Discovered section on the star page). You might also add a note that you are claiming the system because it does not appear to be part of another civ.

2: As each planet where we have a presence contains clues to find the next, I'd rather not upload these as my 5 systems as revealing the locations would defeat the idea of what I'm trying to achieve. Is it acceptable to upload details of 4 other systems alongside the HQ system, which I wouldn't be seeking to claim?

Short answer, YES. As long as you have five star pages, it doesn't matter which five they are. However, you do need to "claim" them, as having five systems on record for your civ is what makes you official. Also, if you don't claim them, then you leave future explorers in the same predicament you found yourself in item 1 - a discovered system, but not claimed.

3: More of a request for help - can you advise where I may get help designing and uploading our logo? I know what I would like it to look like but am not sure how to go about actually making it.

This might be a question better posted in the NMS subreddits.

Thank you in advance for any guidance!

Right-Fish (talk) 12:46, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Questions answered above - thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 20:48, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, much appreciated. In hindsight I will then upload the systems I have established locations in, to avoid the issue you highlight. Request to follow once that's done... Right-Fish (talk) 17:50, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
Just to clarify - you do NOT have to upload the "secret" systems you are using for your process. As you say, that would tend to spoil the idea. So as long as you upload five systems at any location, that is sufficient. Ddfairchildd (talk) 17:59, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Finally finished registering the 5 TetraCobalt Trading Company systems to meet the requirement! Thank you User:Ddfairchild for all the help and feedback along the way!!

I'll review the pages today and see what we've got - thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 15:32, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
All has been reviewed and approved - you have been added to the official Companies page. Welcome! Ddfairchildd (talk) 04:29, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request for the Recognition of the Kosowr Merchant Company (21 April 2021)[edit source]

I would like to request the recognition of the Kosowr Merchant Company, as I believe we have fulfilled the criteria. I am aware that a frequent mistake made is forgetting to list planetary resources to help players coming to the system; however, given that the KMC is not exactly keen for others to enter its systems - even less so for them to use our resources - and does not have the aim of being any sort of cartography company, I would question whether this is really required. Of course if it still is we are happy to fill them out. Dreichh (talk) 17:11, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

have reviewed your headquarters and star pages, and they look good, other than the item you mentioned above with the resources. I would ask that you do include that information, as it is relevant information for documenting the system planets, just as the location, weather, or a picture would be. Once that info has been added, let us know and we'll get you official approved. Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 17:19, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Resoure information added. Dreichh (talk) 20:03, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Looks great - have added you to the official Company page. Welcome! Ddfairchildd (talk) 20:54, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - A Question on What Constitutes a Company[edit source]

I am currently writing the HQ page for the Kosowr Merchant Company; however, given that we do not offer any services and act more like a government enforcing its territories than a company, the template for Civilized Space seems more appropriate than the one for Companies. I just want to check - should the KMC be classed as a company or a civilization?

I think this is an opinion, one in which some people will think yes you are and others may feel you are not a company; in the end it is how 'You' want to write your story. There is obvious backstory which I could not easily find, I assume it's because you are working on it. I suppose 'governing structure' would be an important indicator, but it is all on how you approach it. Oddly enough, tonight I saw an old episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, where the Enterprise had to deal with a civilization who was lead by a corporation. The show was not about this alien species government structure so they never went further into it but this is an approach. Maybe in the process of writing your Mission, your categorization will become clear. Let me know if I can do anything for you.Intothedoor (talk) 06:23, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
From your introduction, it reminds me of the East India Company. While officially a company, they "eventually came to rule large areas of India, exercising military power and assuming administrative functions." I think part of your decision will be based on how many people you expect to be part of your organization, whether that be civ or company. The more people you expect, the more I would lean towards a civ. A smaller number, stick with the company. And most importantly, there is nothing saying you can't start as one, and then switch to the other later if things change significantly. Hope this helps - thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:12, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request for recognition of the RYN (12 April 2021)[edit source]

I request recognition of the Resoom'em t'Yedal'em-Negud, more commonly known as the RYN, as an official company. The RYN is associated with The Qitanian Empire, but operates separately under an Empire charter. I have created pages for the headquarters and the Euclid satellite office. I have also created pages for five of the many star systems explored and colonized by the RYN; I'll be adding the planetary data to those pages shortly. I think the RYN will be the first recognized company in Ogtialabi! Stharward (talk) 21:22, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

OK, I've reviewed your headquarters and system pages. A couple of items:
1) fill out the Background section on the embassy page
2) for the star systems you have listed:
2a) fill out the planet/moon table, including the primary resources available for each planet that the system has. This is an important piece of info for anybody visiting your system page trying to determine which planets are best to visit. You don't have to have individual pages for the planets, but the table does need to have a listing for each one. Once you've got those updates done, let me know and I'll review again.
One thing to note - when adding the resources for each planet, keep in mind the no-duplicate-links formatting.
2b) include a graphic of the system in the infobox. You can either use the "discovery" pic of the system (the one that shows a pic of all the planets and their names) or a more crafted shot if you like that better. If you choose the second option, then include the discovery pic in the gallery section.
Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 22:24, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Looks like the RYN is already listed in the directory and the galaxies map, but I did finish up the missing info detailed above. So looks like this can be marked "complete". Thanks! Stharward (talk) 21:24, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
Well, I didn't see it on the official list before, but I've placed it there now. Thanks for the well-documented pages, will be interested to see what your planet pages have to display. Welcome to civspace! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:02, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to be added as an official Company (April 3, 2021)[edit source]

I request recognition of the Glitterpede Imperial Exploration Corps as an official company. Our headquarters page matches the stated requirements of the wiki.

After an initial overview, I think that the requirements have been met. We are still waiting for Ddfairchildd's assessment. GPIEC has already been added to the map. Welcome! Artifexity (talk) 11:08, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
Reviewed and approved - the GPIEC is now recognized as an official company re the wiki. Congrats! Ddfairchildd (talk) 06:10, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to be added as an official Company (19 March 2021)[edit source]

I would like to request that the Gek United be recognized as an official civ, I believe we have fulfilled all the requirements.

I see we have been added to the map but our name is not on either of the lists. Thank you! - Polo Elpida (The_Chairman_GU)

OK, I've reviewed your headquarters and system pages. A couple of items:
1) for the five star systems you have listed, you'll need to include the primary resources available for each planet that they have. This is an important piece of info for anybody visiting your system page trying to determine which planets are best to visit. Once you've got the resources on the pages, let me know and I'll take another look.
And one thing to note - when adding the resources, remember the no-duplicate-links formatting.
2) There are pages in the wiki from the Living Ship era such as Usskay-42, Riast-42, and Dachai-42. Are these systems also part of Gek United? Their planets seem to be, so wasn't sure about the systems.
3) if you use a pic in the infobox, no need to also include it in the gallery.
4) I think we agreed that GU will be set up as a company instead of a civ. Correct me if I misunderstood?
Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:02, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
Pages look good, headquarters page looks good, have officially added you as a company. Any thoughts on item 2 above? Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:48, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Request to add company (03/11/2021)[edit source]

I reviewed your company page and the four star systems you have in the wiki (you need five, so you'll need at least one more). Before adding the fifth system, please review the notes left on your user page, and also review the changes made to your four star pages. That will help when you create your fifth star page. Thanks.

COMPLETE - Request to add Intergalactic Discoveries to the register and be recognized as an official company[edit source]

I see that Intergalactic Discoveries is already present on the map, thx to Artifexity, but not in the register. I have already documented at least 5 Star System and AFAIK my company meets all the requirements:

  1. A headquarters wiki page exists on the wiki, and it's actively mantained.
  2. At least 5 Star Systems pages are present on the wiki, created and edited by the company.
  3. I (the founder) am involved just with my company. For the sake of clarity, and of honesty, in one of my past playthrough (normal mode ExoMech update time) I have joined the Galactic Hub civilization in Euclid even if I have never been a wiki editor for them, neither I made any discovery in the regions claimed by them. At the moment, occasionally, it could happen that I chat with them on their Discord Server or on the Galactic HUB Eissentam Discord server, about the game... ...if it will be considered be involved with them I will leave at once both their Discord Servers.
  4. and, this is the official request for inclusion from the founder on the Discussion page.
pages look good, your content is great. Welcome to the official wiki Company page! Ddfairchildd (talk) 05:26, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
thx a lot :) Hlfpst11 (talk) 08:07, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add TetraCobalt Trading Company to the companies page - 30/01/21[edit source]

The TetraCobalt Trading Company is a new company that seeks recognition to be featured on the Companies page. We have documented 5 systems but would prefer if we didn't have to showcase them on the Company page. We will if that is a requirement tho. We can also send proof elsewhere.

Yes, it is a requirement that you have a minimum of five systems well-documented in the wiki before we can place you on the Company page. But having read through your company's home page, I have no doubts that they will be well done. Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 06:33, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the positive feedback! I will add those and get back at you! Should I submit a follow up request when that's done or just update here?
you can just make a note here that you have the pages out there ready for review. Once they are there, we will give them a review and go from there. You can also check your user profile page for notes that we may leave if any changes are required. Thanks! Ddfairchildd (talk) 16:58, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Just added the 5 systems! I'll probably make more changes to the page as we go along (adding more pics and stuff).
As I mentioned on your user page, you'll need to have actual wiki pages for the five systems. If you want to create one, and then have me review it before you create the others, it may save you some time as far as anything that might need to be adjusted. Thanks!

Thanks in advance! NinjaAiden (talk) 11:09, 5 January 2021 (GMT)

As far as I can tell, SCG meets the requirements. Only the assignment to the Company Categories is missing. Until further notice I have classified your company in the map as NPC. For final recognition you still have to wait for Ddfairchildd's review. Welcome! Artifexity (talk) 16:03, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Goose Trading Co. is ready to be Listed as a company. I have met the requirements needed to be listed and have my page ready. User: Social goose Central Time (CT)

I've reviewed your embassy page and made several modifications as needed. Not sure about the Headquarters being listed as "Goose" - this should be the name of the planet or moon where your headerquarters are located. Also, here are the four requirements as listed on the company page. It looks like 1, 3, and 4 are complete. However, I haven't been able to find the five star pages on the wiki. Have those been completed?
  1. a headquarters page is present in the wiki
  2. a minimum of five star system pages, created and edited by the company, are present in the wiki
  3. the company's founder is involved only with the new company (basically one company or civ to a customer)
  4. an official request for inclusion from the founder is present on the Discussion page
Once the pages are there and in good order, let me know and we can revisit your request. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 04:19, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Ok I got the 5 star system pages done, just scroll down to the bottom and you'll see it. I also modified the specialization, changed the headquarters so it said the planet it was on, I also added the company category and the services. My company is ready to be listed. and thanks for the feedback. Social_goose 14:59 (2:59) Central Time (CT)

Changes to the embassy page look good, but item 2 specifies five star pages in the wiki, not just a listing on your embassy page. For example, check out the embassy page for Red Giant Industries#Star Systems; you'll see they have references to five specific pages they've created. I turned the five star names on your page into links - these will need to show as green links (i.e. that the page is actually there and that it is in good order). Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 03:25, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
Good to see you're getting started on your star pages. Once you have actual data filled in on the pages, lemme know and I'll review. If you have any questions about how to fill something out, feel free to shoot me a question. Thanks! 17:27, 17 November 2020 (UTC)Ddfairchild (talk)

COMPLETE - Planning to expand the Black Star buisinesses (06/05/2020)[edit source]

Good morning/evening/night, i am the founder of the BSO Botanical Society. Since the Black Star Order is currently under a lore renewal project, i thought of re-branding the BSO Botanical Society as well, making it incorporated in a new super-company that should control almost every kind of buisiness in the Order's territories: it should be called Rerkungan Incorporated and it would offer different services, from minerary to indutrial products, adding also mass consumpition products like shows, food and technology. The Rerkungan Incorporated would work exactly as the BSO Botanical Society works, being a Limited Partnership company controlled by the Black Star Order. Now, with the creation of the Rerk Inc, the BSO BS would be absorbed into the new company, becoming a subsidiary branch of the Rerk Inc. I was wondering if something like this would be possible, and also if it would be possible to use the same star systems discovered by the BSO BS for the new company, to be fully recognized as active company, or if i should add five new more. Thank you for your time and have a nice day! Juseppe001 (talk) 15:56, 05 June 2020 (UTC)

At first glance, it sounds a bit like trying to have multiple companies under the same owner/editor which we obviously try to avoid. It's ok to have both a civ and a company if the company is a limited partnership as you mentioned. But having a company be a limited partnership of one company which is a limited partnership of a civ appears to be stretching it. Am I missing something --Ddfairchild (talk) 19:45, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello, i want to specify that with the creation of the Rerkungan Inc, the BSO BS would not remain a company anymore, it would become a reasearch branch of the Rerc Inc. The new company will work like the Trailblazer Corporation, a geneal company which provides multiple services through multiple specialized branches. This way i will still own only a company, the Rerk Inc with ts branches. I understand that this project could sound a bit like trying to stem the rules to you, so if you think that it should not work, then i will not insist to make it real. Juseppe001 (talk) 08:47, 06 June 2020 (UTC)

Quick question - which galaxy is the GEA located in? Your headquarters are listed as Eissentam, but the star systems are all in Euclid? Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 03:59, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

It's located in Eissentam, we've discovered systems in both galaxies, but majority of the systems we had full info on are in Euclid. Sorry for any confusion as were still gathering info on the current systems in Eissentam--Nojuanlikeme (talk) 04:13, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

OK, sounds good. I have reviewed your HQ and star pages, and they are now in good order. I did make some changes to the star pages, please review theses changes for future reference when you add new explorations. One thing I would like you to add for each of the star and planet pages, and that is an image in the infobox of the system or planet. Having visuals is always a good thing - once those are there give us a holler and we'll mark you as an official company. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 04:22, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

The images should all be assigned to their respective star systems and planets--Nojuanlikeme (talk) 06:52, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Pics look good. One other thing let me mention. If you reviewed the changes I made to your star pages, you may have noticed that I had removed the links for some of the resources in the planets table. Copper is a good example. As a general rule, once Page A links to Page B, future references to Page B are not linked, but just shown in plain text. Otherwise, pages can have duplicated links all over the place. (again, especially copper)
I've updated several of the pages for you again, but will leave you with Nogarbinz and Avaritia for practice. So if you would, go back and remove the duplicated resource links from those two pages - thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 16:20, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Company Branch (April 10, 2020)[edit source]

I would like to further define what a Company Branch is and I am curious what everyone thinks? I propose to have some edited-form of this definition created for the term company branch or maybe spelled Company Branch. Feedback is welcome, I envision this being added to the main page as a section allowing for a place I can link the phrase 'company branch' too on my Branch pages.

  • Company Branch: (as defined in terms relating to No Man's Sky): a fully functional company which is owned completely by the parent company. No branch can function on its own without the existence of the parent company. The branch is controlled by employees of the parent company. A Board of directors would also be in control of the parent company and all branches (subsidiaries). This is not a whole entity, it is not an entity that could break off on its own. Even if branch documentation is large in size, it still requires its parent company to be whole. In terms of the Federation a branch could not become its own member as all employees of said branch would, by definition, be employed by a parent company who can already be represented.

Intothedoor (talk) 21:18, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

I believe that "subsidiary" is a better word here than "branch". Ddfairchild (talk) 21:25, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
If we adopt this definition (any definition) I think to cover all bases we may want to use company branch and subsidiary interchangeably. Real world use may be a little different but for our game I think its better to paint with a broad stroke. Intothedoor (talk) 20:09, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
If I may quote wikipedia: A 'branch office is an outlet of a company or, more generally, an organization that – unlike a subsidiary – does not constitute a separate legal entity, while being physically separated from the organization's main office.
There really is a difference between the two. A branch is what Galaxy Donuts has scattered around the universe. A subsidiary is what the Trailblazer Corporation firm has, and what your defensive sideline would be.Ddfairchild (talk) 03:41, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Statement on the UCA (April 7, 2020)[edit source]

The UCA as of today is officially INACTIVE. Many of our members haven't been active for some time and few have left to pursue other goals(best of luck to them). I myself with MegaCorp doesn't have much time anymore to expand on my company. Given the chaotic nature in the world and the uptick in "troll accounts" the UCA is closing its doors until such a time seems safer. The UCA isn't disbanding, we'll be doing a hard relaunch when we're ready. Thank you everyone, stay safe and stay healthy. - The Godfather

Could the Maya Technology Corporation be added to the Companies list? I think we meet the requirements now. Maya tech corp (talk) 15:27, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Have reviewed your pages, your HQ page looks good. Have two requests for your star pages. First, turn the resources listed in the planet tables into links. Second, for the space station modules, also turn these into links and use bullet points for them. I made these changes to your Ewares page so you can have an example to look at. Once those are done, we'll add you to the Company list. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 16:01, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
Done. Maya tech corp (talk) 16:36, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
As for the modules, sorry I didn't explain well enough. What the links need to be are for the MODULES, not the item they are upgrades for. For example link to Scatter Blaster Module, not Scatter Blaster. After all, it's the modules you are selling, not the original equipment <grin>. If you save a page and see that any of the module links are red, make sure you are linking to an actual page. I'm pretty sure all the pages will be in the wiki that you have references to. Thanks!

COMPLETE - Request for Inclusion (March 23, 2020)[edit source]

Hello everybody,

This is Edvintage of The Qitanian Empire, asking to have my company, the Dapper Diplo Dough Depot officially added to the NMS ingame companies. The DDDD main page should include all information needed (also a list of five claimed star systems). Feel free to contact me any time if you have any questions or demands.

Thanks in advance!

OK, your Headquarters page looks good. Checked your five star pages, and would like you to make the following changes - lemme know if they aren't clear:
  • Alias names: For the Current alias name, the platform should be PS4 only
  • Alias names: If you aren't using the "Other" row, you can delete it
  • Navigator: if you aren't going to have a nav, (and it looks like you won't), you can remove the line. Leave the header in place, just remove the line after it.
  • Categories: Update the Star System Name category to be the name of the actual star, and create the related category page.

Once those changes are made, I'm guessing you'll be good to go. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 17:24, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

OK, company has been added to the Company page - welcome, new business! Ddfairchild (talk) 19:10, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I'm C-los91 and im the owner of the business Red Giant Industries. I would like me business to be added top the company list please. I believe my company complies with all the prerequisites.

Have reviewed your Embassy and star pages, and they look good. I have one question and one request. One of the stars appears to be of a version prior to Living Ship. Has it been visited lately to make sure the page is updated per Living Ship? And the request - if possible, please add a picture to the infobox for these star systems. The best type of pic for this would be a screenshot that shows all of the planets and their names (see Qitand-Zat (PC) as an example), but a galaxy picture of the system would also be acceptable. Once those pics have been added, we'll give you the official stamp of approval. Thanks! !!!!

Hello! Yes, the older system is visited frequently and it's all in order. I have added the images to the 5 star systems. Please let me know if you require any more info. Thanks!

Pages reviewed, all looks up to snuff. Welcome to Corporate Space! Ddfairchild (talk) 05:10, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Official Request for inclusion GrabNGoHotStop[edit source]

I have never made a wiki but I assume this is where I ask to have a company? My concept is called GrabN'Go HotStop it's a Strip club, Strip mall, Strip Mine, Drag strip, landing strip and NipNip Emporium. Locations coming soon to 3 galaxies one Xbone Surv and Perma D(obviously a lesser degree on Perma as I keep dying RIP) It consists of mandatory base features listed here: At least one landing strip, A portal, Refiners, A TradeBot, and after that it varies between diff options based on location. like resource silos with various resources which will be listed in the base name(hence the GrabN'Go), Race tracks and location applicable Exocraft, Farms and they will be place NEAR various existing HUBs/POI for ease of access. Steelfly000 (talk) 04:18, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

If you check the Company page, you will see there is a list of requirements there that will need to be fulfilled. I will included them again here for convenience:
In order to be recognised as a company, the following requirements must be met:
1) a headquarters page is present in the wiki
2) a minimum of five star system pages, created and edited by the company, are present in the wiki
3) the company's founder is involved only with the new company (basically one company or civ to a customer)
4) an official request for inclusion from the founder is present on the Discussion page
This will give you a list to start on. Once you feel you've completed these steps, come back to this talk page and let us know. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 04:27, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

So I put my HQ info here for review than? I'm sorry, as I said previously this is new to me lol Steelfly000 (talk) 11:13, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

The easiest way to create a new page in the wiki is to follow these steps:
1) in the search bar, type in the name of your company as you want it to appear on the wiki
2) when you search for it, you won't find it, but you will see a message saying "Create the page XXX on the wiki" and the XXX should be the name you want.
3) click on that red link, then select the blue Company link from the resulting page.
4) this will create a preformatted company page for you, just fill in the information you have about your company in the right spots.
5) if you don't have any information for a section, just don't enter anything there
6) when you're done, save the page, and that will create your HQ page (which is option 1 above)

You'll need to do the same type of thing for the five star pages, you'll just want to select the blue Star System link instead.

Thanks!Ddfairchild (talk) 17:27, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Official Request 02/26/2020[edit source]

Hi everyone, the Black Star Order founded its first non-profit company: the BSO Botanical Society. Can it be added to the companies map? Thank you for your help and have a nice day!

Who will be managing the Botanical Society and keeping the wiki updated? As a non-profit, it has to be someone different than the person running Black Star Order to avoid conflict of interests. If you are willing to change the type from non-profit to limited partnership (Lps), then it can be the same person. Then it's stated up front that there is a link between the two. However, if the BSO wants to start a second company, that one WILL need to be run by someone else. Thoughts? Ddfairchild (talk) 20:02, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
I have added the BSO Botanical Society to the map. I classified the company as LPs and NpC until Dfairchild's questions were answered. Furthermore, I classified BSO Botanical Society as UC (Under construction) because no additional 5 star systems have been documented yet. --Artifexity (talk) 20:53, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello, first of all I would like to apologize to the main admins of the site for never having answered their questions. A month has passed since the BSO Botanical Society was founded and I have never given you the explanations you asked for. I know that probably doing it just now will seem silly to you, but I really want to apologize, i noticed your replies to my inclusion request only now. The Society will be curated only by me as founder, I added the five systems necessary for the recognition and I changed the company category from NpC to LP. I don't plan to create more companies in the future. Again, I apologize for not paying attention to your questions. Pacem, Juseppe001.

Hey, no problem in the least! We only have time to do what we have time to do, and we appreciate your contribs. I enjoy reading the notes on the Botanical Society's page. Have reviewed your pages and they look good. The only thing I'd suggest is that you add a picture of each planet to the infobox, but that's your call. I have approved, and will add your company to the official list. Welcome to the corporate world! !!!!

COMPLETE - Company Requirement Inquiry 01/26/20[edit source]

Hello again. Sorry to continually make requests. I had both some questions and wanted to propose some ideas (if I may). First, I was wondering what constitutes a star system documented and edified by the company. Since many companies operate within the established borders of civilizations, should star systems, like Qitand-Tus which is both the capital of The Qitanian Empire and headquarters of Red Giant Industries, be listed on both pages? And would that count toward the 5 documented systems? I also was hoping to propose an amendment (although I am not sure that can be done, or it is my place to do so. If not just ignore this). It seems that many services are offered at the behest of civilizations. For instance, the Galactic Hub’s undocumented HUber or the Qitanian resource farms (recently documented as Dapper Diplo Dough Depot). I know there has been conversation before regarding the fact that each person be limited to one civilization or one company. I was wondering if it would be appropriate to amend that rule, allowing for civilizations (which meet the civilization requirments, 5 documented systems, etc) to own only one company, which operates inside of their civilizations space. Anyhow, thanks for your time and sorry for the bother! Carter Brentwood(talk 17:37, 26 January 2020 (EST)

No problem. A civilization that has founded a company should have documented at least 10 star systems. I personally don't believe in softening this rule. There are already enough civilized fake zones. A minimum of work and initiative should be shown to be recognized. I personally take a positive view of the possibility that a civilization and a company can be managed by the same founder. Then I could reactivate the Oxalis Hotel Chain :) --Artifexity (talk) 12:12, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
I have a perspective on this that I thought I would share: I think in the end the question becomes 'what is the intention of the owner/operator of said business?' I think specifically a single person or group pf people can't discover/document 10 systems and make both a Company and Civilization out of it but for example 'Galaxy Donuts' which is operated out of the GHUB by a GUHB citizen could become a fully fledged Company with Federation membership because that business owner is not apart of the GHUB leadership AND has documented all their own stuff for the purpose of THEIR Donut shop. It becomes about substance, I see these poorly created wiki pages throughout the GP wiki history and just shake my head, we are documenting to add to the breath of information available for NMS players and yes imagination is a part of this but there needs to be some base of real in-game info for it to be meaningful. Now, I am not commenting on Mr. Brentwoods creations, I am proud to be a company alongside the Trailblazer Firm; this is a broad general feeling I have on the subject. We do need to remember history tho, we had a Business-centric group created by the several user names used by The Godfather/Tempest, and tho the idea wasn't all that bad the follow thru didn't work. I think and will probably always think a better approach is to expand the alliances we have instead of trying to build another one formed together out of businesses which are weakly built and documented, of courser this is only my opinion. I 100% support the formation of Mr. Brentwoods Alliance but I feel it would be better served, vetted, documented and applauded by the populous in general if it stayed as department within the Federation which was the original idea going back to Atlas Rises. Of course I always want to see the Federation strengthened with more groups and people belonging... Sorry this is a little long Intothedoor (talk) 22:26, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Some background on the "one-to-a-customer" limitation that we try to adhere to. And of course, originally there were only civs, as companies came later.
1) We had a variety of editors who created multiple civs in an attempt to gain a larger voting block in the Federation, wiki decisions, etc. It became obvious after awhile that there were sham civs, or at least ones that were very poorly supported and documented.
2) the Delta quadrant was a hotbed of this, with many civs creating pages and then trying to claim that they were "the HUB" for that quadrant, despite their limited presence and membership
3) maintaining documentation on the wiki for a civ/company (i.e the exploration being done, bases being built, etc) is not a simple task. You can tell by looking at most of the civs we have documented on the wiki that once the embassy page is created, that's basically the end of it. And even for those who do document the "five systems", there are plenty of cases where the only thing filled out on the system page is the infobox. With this being the case, expecting good documentation for both a civ AND a company owned by the same editor becomes even less likely.
4) when companies came along, we quickly had attempts to create companies to go along with existing civs, not so much as the fact that it was a valid company but again, to gain extra weight
Having said this, we have eased the restrictions a bit by opening up the ability to have a company type of LPs. The wiki describes this as a company with one or more general partners and a limited partner such as a civilization. EXAMPLE - Oxalis Hotel Chain. It's fairly easy to determine if an LPs company is valid or not, simply by the amount of content they add and maintain. Oxalis is run by a known and efficient editor, and there's no question that it's a valid company. They Eyfert Khannate is looking at opening up the Red Egion Motel Chain, as it better describes a series of similar bases he is building across seven different systems instead of just treating them as bases.
In short, it is always better to have one to a customer as it eliminates a lot of questions. But there are cases where it does make sense to allow a related company and civ, and I trust that we are open-minded enough to recognize those situations. As far as the question as to "can I reuse systems?" my take would be this. I don't have a problem with a star system being part of both, as that will likely happen, just as it would in real life. However, I believe that both the civ AND the company should each have at least five systems that are unique. That shows the dedication to founding and documenting that should be required for either a civ or a company. Ddfairchild (talk) 20:22, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you all for your consideration. I think that is fair to document the five unique systems for each company and civilization. I plan to have each of the company executive creates accounts and am trying to teach them how to use the wiki (some have started somewhat). It’s just been kind of a complicated process. Once we get that sorted, everyone will get their five unique systems (fleshed out - - to good standard). As for joining the Federation, that would probably require talks on both sides, GCT Reps and Federation Ambassadors. I have much respect for all of the Federation civs and companies, and hope to have a close working relationship given the bonds we’ve formed. To join the Federation as a department, I feel we would have to make sure that it would be a good fit and that we all have a shared vision. I can’t attest to the plans in Atlas Rises, unfortunately I wasn’t around (although I did join the UCA briefly it that’s it). Hopefully we’ll be talking again soon, and thank you both for the clarifications. Carter Brentwood(talk 23:25, 5 February 2020 (EST)

COMPLETE - A Question About Alliances 01/25/20[edit source]

Hello friends! The No Man's Sky community has been lacking for companies recently (atleast in my experience). I have started an alliance of businesses known as the Galactic Corporate Trust. Our organization is working with (although not in any way sponsored by) several prominent civilizations (like the Galactic Hub, Qitanian Empire, and others). I am currently in the process of recruiting (and helping players create) businesses to join the GCT. I was wondering what the requirements would be to have this group added as an official wiki alliance. If this can not be done, I understand, but I am happy to work to fulfill any conditions set if that is a possibility. I would also like to add that this is still a work in progress and so all of this conversation is preliminary, to prepare for the event that we could be added. Once again, thank you so much for your time and consideration. Carter Brentwood(talk 14:08, 25 January 2020 (EST)

Once a group reaches a minimum membership of five individual companies, they may apply for recognition as an official corporation. Good luck with your endeavor. --Artifexity (talk) 15:14, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Carter Brentwood(talk 15:46, 21 January 2020 (EST)

I've added the TC to a Limited Partnership section on the company page, which is how the Trailblazer Firm was listed on the Visions page. Are the star systems that were part of the Firm now part of the Corporation? If so, I'd suggest you revisit them in-game and then update the relevant pages in the wiki. Most of the pages are going to be tagged with "Firm" and so updates are needed as appropriate. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 20:57, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

I'd appreciate help or links to resources that can guide me through the process of doing this because I don't really know where to begin. Vanyelmage (talk) 03:20, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Well, my first suggestion would be to look at some of the other company pages in the wiki to see what other editors have created. Not that you have to follow them exactly, but it will give you an idea of a general format. Once you've reviewed, then you can follow these steps:
1) in the search bar, enter the name of your Company and search for it. You are, obviously, unlikely to find it <g>
2) You will see the phrase Create the page "xxx" on this wiki!, with the name of your company in red
3) click on the red link, then pick Company from the resulting list of blue links
4) this will open up a new page with our standard company boilerplate and some instructions.
5) go through the page and enter all the information you have in the relevant areas. You may not have info for all the areas, and that's OK. But don't delete the section headers - they are there for future reference.
6) when done, save the page
7) As for bases, follow the same basic instructions above, just pick Base instead of Company
8) once you are satisfied that you have all the information entered for the requirements, drop a note back out here and ask for a review.

Hope this helps! Ddfairchild (talk) 03:36, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request for new company 28/07/19[edit source]

So it turns out as a so called 'expert' I've been asked to join a partnership in the creation of a new company. This is a collective, one I'm not too interested in but alas I find myself crawling back due to request from friends. Believe me this wouldn't have been my idea after last time. And since I have the save data and wiki account it's of course my job to do both those things. But i'm by no means the primary user here. Ownership is under my name however...I suppose. Well since I'm involved I might as well put my input in so I decided the company is a collection of all my other stuff, saves me valuable time having to discover yet another five planets etc etc. Well I hope I can merge the other systems discovered with this as this company is the merger with the other companies/civs I made. Hey I need to be recognized as the creative genius somehow right? Either way I hope you can help, well the others out, and put this one on the map under the spot of lets say LEVIATHAN and take that one off the map since it's still on there for some reason. Thank you for your time. BaileyJack 21:37, a lovely sunday night in the UK

Hi BaileyJack, since LEVIATHAN is already recognized as a Company, it would be just an exchange. That's right. However, on the page of LEVIATHAN, a note must be made that this page is no longer to be classified as a current Company. Since StormchaserCAI has already introduced to me on Reddit, there should be no problems with the owner rule. I will soon adapt the map. For the recognition of RAIN as a Company, I would like to wait for Ddfaichilds assessments. Thanks for the request. Welcome back! --Artifexity (talk) 14:10, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Good to speak again. I've added the note onto LEVIATHAN. Hopefully the request is complete then hopefully can get it into the Federation next. Thanks for your help! BaileyJack 17:34, 29/07/19
As long as all of the old companies are either marked that they are no longer in business (or have been merged into the new company), that should be fine. Ddfairchild (talk) 03:40, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

I've recorded all the star systems that have been discovered by my organization and made a wiki page for it: Olympus Alliance. It's within the EPM. I plan on adding many more soon SparkiinJayz

Did a quick look at your system pages - these need to adhere to the standard formats for star systems, and most of those sections are missing from your pages. Are you familiar with our set of preload pages? That's what you need to follow. As far as your company page, the following sections are expected there. You do have some of them, but this is the order and basic section names we look for:
  • Summary
  • Mission
  • Location
  • Headquarters
  • Regions
  • Branch Offices
  • Background
  • Partnerships
  • Guidelines
  • Structure
  • Joining
  • Employees

Thanks, everything is still in development. Yes, MegaCorp is blue. Have you already seen the United Corporate Alliance Map? I still have to adjust the map. Requests or suggestions for improvement are welcome. Artifexity (talk) 14:57, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh wow thank you for creating that map! Looks awesome! I do have an idea for the map, you can add all the branches for all UCA members instead of adding the circles? The Godfather (talk) 2:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
I'll think about it and adjust the map accordingly. Thanks for the feedback. Artifexity (talk) 08:49, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Done. Artifexity (talk) 11:18, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 03/31/19[edit source]

Hey there, not sure if this is the correct manner of doing this, but I believe it is. I'd like to register the Trailblazer Company, but need to know quickest way to get my coords.RazorFangWrecks

Hello RazorFangWrecks, it lacks 1 documented star system for recognition as a company. 5 documented star systems are the minimum requirements. Check coordinates by building a Signal Booster. Welcome. Artifexity (talk) 08:33, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request to add new company 03/30/19[edit source]

Request to add a new company. Intergalactic Exploration Corporation would like to be formally recognized as a Company. Peacebomb

Hello Peacebomb, I just answered you on the civilized space page. Intergalactic Exploration Corporation was listed on the companies page and all three branches were added to the map. Welcome. Artifexity (talk) 11:46, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Pre-built Template 03/28/19[edit source]

This is up to the admins but I feel that companies should get there own template when creating their business page. Just how civilized space, regions, planets etc have theirs. Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 10:20, 28 March 2019 UTC

Couple of comments on this.
1) the preload templates are available for pages that have lots of entries in the wiki, and continue to have many new ones created. On the other hand, we only have a dozen recognized companies, with a dozen or so more that use the Company infobox (and several of those are just subsidiary companies) So there hasn't been much demand for company pages.
2) I did a quick look at those we do have out there and what those pages contain. The content varies widely, but the most common features are those that a civspace would also contain (other than the infobox of course, for which we do have a specific Company version)
At this point, I think most people who woutgisant to start a company can use the Civspace preload, and then just switch out the infobox. Fill me in on what you think a Company preload should provide? Ddfairchild (talk) 14:35, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
All vauled points I just think it would be easier for new companies to have this template instead of "copying and paste" from others. If a template is created heres what I think should be on it -
  • name =
  • image =
  • galaxy =
  • quadrant =
  • region =
  • system =
  • headquarters =
  • founder/CEO =
  • branches =
  • type =
  • product =
  • platform =
  • mode =
  • release =

Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 2:22, 28 March 2019 UTC

OK, I must be missing something. What's different between those items and the Company infobox we already have?
Template:Companies infobox

Ddfairchild (talk) 18:34, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

We don't have the option of selecting it when we're creating a template page. The Godfather (talk) 2:43, 28 March 2019 UTC
OK, I see what you're getting at. However, with the creation of companies being few and far between, at this stage it's just as easy to create a new page using the civspace page and yes, copy-and-pasting the company infobox. Now if we start seeing a run of companies, maybe it'll be time to create a pre-load <g> We'll keep it on our watchlist. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 18:50, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
In this case I am agreeing with Mr. Godfather - and I would expand this to an appropriate 'Branches' page too (something I have been gearing up to create for my overly-large main page). True the Civ page and the Base page respectively may be very similar its how players come to that conclusion is what I would like to assist. I think there is a bit of thought process us 'Companies' are going thru and it's specifically that we don't want to be a civ or a base per-say we see ourselves (at least I do) as something different and I look at myself as a company specifically because I am not a civ. Regardless of the fact it is only interchangeable words and similar information... in the end proper wiki organization will only help the wiki, and making things (ie clear Company pages) easier for players/editors to find only promotes more documentation for the wiki which is a win win. Also, for the Admins to create these proper Company and Branches Templates you can oversee the evolution and process for the future. Intothedoor (talk)
Couldnt agree with you more Mr.Door! In the past few days actually we've seen an influx of new companies. I think maybe its time to add the company templates? The Godfather (talk) 2:56, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
(I am thinking out loud here) - Maybe we should re-think this - I would almost recommend a re-imagination of the way we get to this information. Start at the main first page of our wiki NMS wiki in the 'Civilization section' it feels incorrect to me: Factions, Lore, Game Mode, Modding and Multi-player (maybe) have nothing to little to do with 'Civilizations'. I would recommend those topics be included in a Game in general related section. Where as a Fan Fiction section would include things like Civ space (GHUB and others), Companies, Journals. So I would suggest we go to the top and re-configure how our information is displayed and include Companies within a Fan Fiction topic. Intothedoor (talk) 20:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Actually, I do think that Factions and Lore have to do with civilization. Maybe not fan-fiction civs, but civilization they are. For that matter, Space stations also have more to do with civilization than they do the Universe per se. I agree with you on the Game Mode, Modding, and Multi-player, but we had to put them somewhere <g>. We shall gather the admin team together and confer - thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 04:40, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
In my mind civilizations/companies are player created fan fiction, where as Factions are the in-game races and the page talks about what those in game (game created) races are; just as the Lore page discusses in-game (game created) Lore. Journals and other fan fiction like documents would be player created Lore. I would suggest a new section be created with a title in the vein of in-game information (features and information). Of course just thinking out loud here :) Intothedoor (talk) 16:34, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
I was just checking the Template:Companies infobox/doc and what each of the companies filled out. I feel there are some inconsistencies and the template could use some tweaking. I propose that the Type should be used for the Company Categories abbreviations only and text written here will have a link to the Company Categories page. What is currently written in the Type, would be renamed as Specialisation or something like this. I would rename Product to Services as it can be interpreted more broadly and it may sounds better for companies, like GenBra Space Corp and Intergalactic Exploration Corporation, the Services: Galactic Information expression. Please give some feedback and any other ideas are welcome! Gorla (talk) 17:26, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@The Godfather, Artifexity, Intothedoor, and Ddfairchild: Please share your opinions. Thanks! Gorla (talk) 20:47, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Now that I am understanding better, I do like what Gorla is suggesting. Adding Type: Non-Profit; changing Product to Services: Galactic Information; changing (current) Type to Specialization: Scientific Exploration and Documentation. That makes good sense to me. Intothedoor (talk) 21:57, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
I agree with that. That is a clarification and improvement. Artifexity (talk) 09:48, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
I would like to add my two cent on this; the template looks great! However I would like to add if the Company is a UCA member. Look the Corporate Alliance has grown considerably into a prominent 10 company alliance. We've worked very hard to built our alliance just like the federation has. Thank you. :@Artifexity, Gorla, and Ddfairchild: The Godfather 8:05 April 15, 2019
Thanks for the feedback and I will update accordingly the template. Also the UCA membership can be added for sure. Note to myself, the Template:Reply to does not seem to work as intended. Gorla (talk) 13:07, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Company Categories 03/24/19[edit source]

I've been brainstorming ideas to categorise companies based on there mission statements and to color code them on the map and I think I got something -

  • Sole Proprietaryship(SPs) - A company that is run by a single individual with greater flexibility of management and assists.
  • General Partnership(GPs) - A company with two or more individuals running it with no personal liability or negligence between the partners.
  • Limited Partnership(LPs) - A company with one or more general partners and a limited partner such as a civilization.
  • Mega Corporation(MC) - A more complex company with a large management team and structure usually five or more members.
  • Nonprofit Corporation(NpC) - A company with a specific goal or idea rather than in interest in profit.
  • Limited Liability Company(LLC) - A company of one or more individuals under a specific contract or agreement.

These are just a few we could incorporate. The UCA already has some of these like MegaCorp is well a mega corporation, Vy'Kea and LEVIATHAN are sole proprietaryships and Celab GALACTIC is limited partnership since Celab has ties to AGT. The Godfather (talk) 11:21, 24 March 2019 (UTC

On the newest map I tried to add the categories. As long as we can show all branches, the colors are not available. That's why I used numbers. If the assignments to the Companies are not correct, let me know. Artifexity (talk) 11:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Ooo I like it looks good. I see what you mean though but on the subject of that with having all company names on the right side will there be a limit? Companies will surely grow more over time and to be added. The Godfather (talk) 8:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC
Yes, there is a limit, as soon as there are more companies or the branches take up too much space, I will adjust the map accordingly. Artifexity (talk) 14:25, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Gotcha the UCA has a slew of companies waiting to be accepted once they meet the requirements. Also I created the Company Categories if that was okay to do. The Godfather (talk) 11:46, 25 March 2019 (UTC
Just to verify - each of these prospective companies has a unique and individual owner, correct? Ddfairchild (talk) 15:52, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
That's correct each UCA member control its company. Our discord server is prove. One member the CEO of Ghost Enterprises hasn't had time to work on his wiki as of yet. The Godfather (talk) 11:57, 24 March 2019 (UTC

COMPLETE - Quadrant Corporate Sectors 03/17/19[edit source]

The Corporate Alliance has begun building four special "Hubs" as places where CEO's of Companies in their respective quadrant can meet, trade, build, and promote their Enterprises. It will be a free marketplace for all who want to conduct business on all platforms - PS4, XBox, and PC.

The first has been created in the Delta Quadrant with the coordinates -

  • 0BA0:0081:0F48:0112

When Artifexity has the time can he update the company map with the new Delta Corporate Sector. Much appreciated! Thanks! The Godfather (talk) 02:05, 17 March 2019 (UTC

Hello The Godfather, I've been thinking about Corporate Sectors. Result is the Market area, as a new category. I've added the category to the Companies map. The circle indicates that a Market area (Delta Corporate Sector), is under construction in this region. Otherwise, I agree with Ddfairchild. Artifexity (talk) 19:40, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Edit: I have undone the market areas. I think it makes more sense to wait and see what comes of it. In addition, I have added new branches. It is difficult to properly classify trade relations in this impenetrable network of relationships between the companies :) Artifexity (talk) 17:32, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
So are the "hubs" companies or are they civspaces? It doesn't sound like they are either. And if that's the case, I'm not convinced these belong on either the company OR the civspace map. It sounds more to me like they are a sub-organization of the Corporate Alliance. Thoughts? Ddfairchild (talk) 00:54, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Its hard to explain its not "hubs" but more like "meeting places" where CEO's can meet with others and build and trade. The Godfather (talk) 08:58, 17 March 2019 (UTC
I seen that thank you! I've expanded into a new region at the very edge of the Galaxy, more bases to come! To both of you, the Corporate Sectors still need to be fleshed out. We didn't know how to make them a "thing" yet. The Godfather (talk) 05:50, 21 March 2019 (UTC

COMPLETE - Vy'Kea Furniture Company and CELAB Galactic Industries joins the Corporate Alliance 02/27/19[edit source]

Both Vy'Kea Furniture Company and CELAB Galactic Industries has joined the United Corporate Alliance as a offical members. Artifexity may you adjust the company map and include them in the Corporate Alliance? The Godfather (talk) 07:15, 27 February 2019 (UTC

Done. Congratulations to the United Corporate Alliance on its official recognition as an alliance. Artifexity (talk) 12:00, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - MegaCorp Five Systems Doc Completed 02/25/19[edit source]

I've just finished documenting all Five Systems for MegaCorp to be added to the Company Map. The Godfather (talk) 05:18, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

The map has been completely revised. Thanks for the information. Artifexity (talk) 12:13, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - New CEO of Samone Corporation 01/17/19[edit source]

Former CEO of the Samone Corporation, Bailey Jacks has announced his successor to his company. Also new the CEO Sypder has joined the United Corporate Alliance. The Godfather (talk) 06:55, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that out. The maps have been adapted accordingly. Artifexity (talk) 16:53, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
