Tiali, only scouting your own sectors... you do know how much time that requires right? Its not like you can do it any longer as you could back in the ICIS days, basically write a little script which allowed you to stay logged in and methodically visited each square in the galaxy.
also it is not enough that you do it once, you need to do it continuously for ever and ever. unless the admins state that from now on there will not be any new systems added.
Elias, as I understood it not all planets in each sector will necessarily be added in this round. That is the answer I got from Jesfa, if remembering it right and understood it right. and it is not about loosing control over sectors, even if that could happen for sure. Its about that suddenly there might be numerous of planets deep inside someones core space that anyone can slab bomb as they want and create a big mess or build up a big bad military planet, with no respect to the fact that a group might have controlled the area for a long time.
not to mention what is the policy about new planets and systems as more and more gets introduced to the sw galaxy over time? I mean when swc was created there were´t as much info about sw galaxy as it is today and I expect that there will be more in a year then what there is today.
