Currently, there are five Company Statuses that I'm aware of:
  • Standard
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • System Company
  • Developer
I'd like to suggest a sixth. "Trusted" Status. Although I'm not sold on the name. :smile:

There are lots and lots of different services in the game like loans, shareholders, contract buildings, investing, etc. that are easy enough to do informally by players, but hard to implement in the game because of all the effort needed to prevent misuse or cheating. However, the players are restricted from doing any of those by very useful and reasonable limits set in place by developers.

But there are many trustworthy players who don't ever try to exploit the game or cheat or anything of the like. If these players had a "trusted" account they wouldn't be limited by the restrictions, and they could engage in business with fewer limitations and thus be open to lots of creativity.
The developers choose a few players to initially be given "trusted" status, and from then on, future players could obtain it if they are recommended by three or so players who already have that account, and then the developers see the recommendations and approve. The recommendation system could prevent the developers from being hounded by companies requesting the status.
There would likely be limitations based on level (larger players are less likely to try to exploit the game) and perhaps tickets.
