I was thinking something similar. The problem is that tabs are very expensive, and it would take a large guild to be able to afford all of the tabs. We have two tabs now, one for gear and one for crafting. Maybe we need to put all of the high end stuff in the crafting tab for a while and restrict that. Except for zero, I don't think any of us are over Lt. Commander. Maybe we should move anything less common or over Mark II to another tab with restricted access. Recruits not previously known to the SSX would go through a waiting period before having access to the basic tab. A more lengthy waiting period would be required before accessing more advanced equipment. So, maybe three levels of access: recruit, general, and advanced?
