A few issues ago I included a survey in the Fed2 Star asking you what you thought about the frequency with which we remove abandoned planets from Fed DataSpace. I can now give you the results.

It was a more-or-less even split between those that were happy to keep things as they are, with a roughly two-year purge, and those that wanted us to zap the planets every six months. Here’s a graphic showing the split:

Survey results: how often should we purge abandoned planets?

So we are going to go with the six month option. From now on we’ll run a purge on abandoned planets twice a year. We’ll warn you in the news before we remove any planets, so if you have warehouses or depots sited on them you can sell them off in advance.
