Greetings Commanders,

If you have any questions, or simply wish to discuss topics around Player Minor Factions and Player Groups, please use this thread.

This thread is for questions and discussion only. It should not be used to check the status of your submitted Player Minor Faction. You can check the status at https://tools.elitedangerous.com/en/factions

If you haven’t requested a Player Minor Faction, but want to, please click here.
 
I am Sure this question has been asked before, I just can't seem to find where.

If a PMF goes through a change such as the person who created it leaves, how do we go about changing any PoC info for that PMF with you good folks at frontier?
 
Thx for the update Brett, another applcation sent in this time with the new setup, fingers crossed it will finally sort out my issue :)
 
Fingers crossed you will avoid dropping PMF into systems hosting Rare Goods. Pretty please :)

Edit: I notice presence of Rares is not listed as a limitation on locations, :(

Just as a note, in that website it says
In order to be eligible for a minor faction, you must have first signed up for a Player Group via the submission form located here.
Which sends us to https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/241826-Player-Groups-and-Minor-Factions-Submission-Form-and-Information?p=3748009&viewfull=1#post3748009 but there isn't any way to fill any form as the OP post says
As of July 25 2018 - this thread has been deprecated and superseded by a new system. Please see the new stickies in : https://forums.frontier.co.uk/forumd...ngerous-Groups - thank you!
So how is this supposed to work?

EDIT: I've just saw you've just opened a new post for this, so you just need to update the link in the tools website.

Nice work all

Hopefully some of those factions that were lost by the wayside or stuck in limbo can now get themselves in game

Yeah, website updates in segments/batches (rolling updates) as far as i am aware. Sorry about that.
 
Two questions:
  1. What about console CMDRs? When I use my existing Frontier Account, the error message "You could not be logged on due to the following reason: You do not have access to Elite Dangerous " appears. Probably because I don't own a PC copy of the game?

  2. Can I raise a ticket or anything to get the system description to the game for my already existing PMF? The PMF was added, but not the description. For details see this post: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/370730-Player-Groups-and-Minor-Factions-General-Discussion?p=6842844&viewfull=1#post6842844 I just wanted to make sure, that this is carried over from the old thread.

Same problem here, console user too.

Had that problem too. My LastPass filled fields for me. But I wrote my password again manually and everything works.

Shouldn't have anything to do with the wrong password. In this case, the error message is "You could not be logged on due to the following reason: Email address and/or password was incorrect "
 
Hi,

I tested the new form but none of the systems entered is found (kalak, sol, vega, svass) = no system found.
It's a simple test to forward this feature to the french community

Got the same issue. Many system could not be found, but they ARE in the game.
 
@Brett @Will and the dev team.

First of all, congratulations for bringing this new tool to our community. It's a long waited improvement we needed so much.

Well, some know my PMF (Silver Hunter Order) was finally created this year, but I decided to give the new system a try. Don't worry I didn't submit the application, just went through it until before submiting ;)

As it was said by other commanders, there are many systems not being found by the "FIND" function. Of course I had to try filling in with the systems the SHO is already. The app system said it couldn't find them. OK, I thought "perhaps it purposely doesn't find systems which already have a PMF". Then I tried many other systems and just a few were found.

So, to be clear for the commanders who will apply for a PMF, when the new application system says it hasn't found the system they fill in, does it mean the app system couldn't really find those systems? Or is it a confusing way to say "we couldn't find the system or it is one of the ineligible systems, please choose another?"

I am just trying to help make the system better, lowering the amount of complaints toward you guys (FDev) ;)

New PMF system

So I was trying to sign into the new PMF system and it says that I don’t have access to Elite Dangerous. Also I was wondering how I know that my player group was added to the list?. Thanks 🙂
 
Yes, the system is not seemingly working in terms of system found, or anything beyond the system portion of the form.

I contacted Brett this morning and he responded:
"will poke our web team."

SYSTEM INPUT NOT FUNCTIONING, FDEV IS AWARE.
EXPECT THE PMF SYSTEM TO NOT FUNCTION UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
