The best way to gather a group of 12 to do Mining Base Defense? [Ship 2]

Hello ARKS operatives, I found it's kind of awkward to gather a group of people more than 4 in the current game. There's no raid group management at all and my current alliance is not that active 😞. So what's the best way to gather people who are interested in doing Mining Base Defense other than shouting in the gate lobby?

If you have 12 people in-game, you can make use of the password feature and searching on the same block to get everyone into the same UQ. Did it with some people I play with back when Magatsu first came out.

As for actually wrangling those 12 people, I guess shouting in populated lobbies, getting into an alliance with a lot of members, or maybe checking out the pso2fleet discord?
