How many of you have groups on your server that are so clueless they try to explain these far out theories on how the SP bonus mechanics work? My favorite and coincidentally most frequently heard one is "it applies based on the individual" LOL they are saying that it applies to you and the people within 5 levels of you. If you cant figure out the humor in that well..
For the people who still insist theres some mystical formula that allows you to gimp my SP because you insist on having groups with people 10 levels apart, read here.. straight from the horses mouth http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=e4fcac48d0f8438c429f49b7a9b1ec6c2f1e02cb
The mechanics are very simple. If you have a group that has everyone within 5 levels of one another, you get an sp bonus. The more people you have within that range, the higher the bonus. (if you go outside of the range at all with any player, bonus disappears completely) IT IS NOT individual, it is applied to the party. If even 1 person is outside of the 5 level maximum, guess what.. NO SP BONUS FOR ANYONE.
