Recent interactions with other pilots have shown me a hole in the ability to control my own ore fields in 0.5 space. My friends and I can normally clear out our ore pull over the course of a day on our own, but another pilot has decided to bring his alts to horde in on my field. Easy, one would say. Wardec him and have at it. That’s all well and good until I look and see the person is hiding from wardecs behind being in an NPC corporation because “I don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of wardecs.”
Therefore I suggest this as a future feature: A mining access list assignable in the refinery’s permissions. Anyone not on the list would get the standard warning about criminal activities in the field and has the option to ignore it and continue or move on. People on the list would get no such flags and be treated as friends of the station. Those that flag themselves would be flagged to the owning corporation of the station and then we could go about removing the intruder to our field. If a person is on the list and then gets taken off while mining, they would be able to finish that cycle then the modules would deactivate. Attempting to start them again would cause them to get warnings in the next one, rather than be auto-flagged as criminal. Logistics and arrangements for list membership would be between the miners and owners of the station in question.
