This is a long standing conversation with player owned structures, and courier contract scamming.
When is this going to come to an end? This particular type of scamming is unnecessary to the “this is eve” atmosphere.
Now I’ve not personally been scammed, but it’s getting really tiring to hear about it. Especially when after a contract is accepted docking rights can be removed.
One of two solutions, if your station has an open courier contract and has docking rights at the time of the contract, docking permissions can’t be revoked for the individual who took it.
This still allows people to scam, because apparently that’s what eve is all about, and not actually having fun. This still allows people to scam by issuing a courier contract, while all docking permissions are already cut off hoping someone will accept it. At that point its the same idea behind the 9.8b scam with 980m buy out but only like 30m worth of items. It’s at that point your fault for not realizing the citadel was not accessible.
The second solution is auto deliver when in tethering range of the destinations building.
When you can accept a courier contract while docking rights are open to all, and they can close them. It’s like accepting a contract for X amount and then having it turn into Y amount where in X was 100m and Y is 1000m.
It’s just not right CCP. Please fix this problem.
