The Four Corners Racing Commission promoted speed amougst all pilots, helping where needed. Many of our paticipants are traders, the use of these new jumpgates could ruin more than they help.

The Eve universe just got a lot smaller upon the activation of the new jumpgates. Speed is nolonger a factor, the empires are now one, borders, trade routes have all been rendered obsolete. The "gun-ho" aproach of CONCORD can only be described as immature, limiting profesion to almost solely mining operations.

The FCRC urges CONCORD to dismantle and destroy all of the new jumpgate that will destroy many pilots way of life. The only other option is to charge extorionate prices in order to lower peoples uses of the jumpgates.

We also urge all empires and corperations to stop CONCORDs rapid growth. They are slowly taking over the ve universe and have a larger fleet in many systems than their respective owners.

I believe that there may well be a toll levied on the use of the CONCORD Super Highway Gate Network.

This may go some way to alleviating your concerns, as those wishing not to decrease profit margins further will need to travel via more conventional jumpgate.

My apologies for not being clearer. What I meant was that I believe that a toll system is due to be implemented in the near future...

Ah yes, from a recent Global NeoCom communication (http://myeve.eve-online.com/news.asp)...
The superhighway network grid is still in its experimental stages, so people are advised to show caution while using them. Downtimes and operational failures are to be expected. To compensate, using the highway gates will be free of charge until all problems have been ironed out.

But the problem is will the toll be high enough? If they charge 100isk it just wont be enough, not even 1,000isk or even 10k wont even dent most peoples pockets.

Ah.. But my fellow eve citizens..

What if they were to levy a toll based on a percentage of your cargo's value. All corps would feel the pinch don't you agree?....

A truly excellent idea. I do hope CONCORD are monitoring this channel. It would allow people to travel according to their own means.

The "Pay a Toll" method was already tried. Not many were willing to pay.

However if you'd like, move the new gates into the non empire systems and we'd be happy to start collecting tolls again.

Amarrian's need only donate their biomass.

My only complaint with the new jump network is why are Amarr jumpgates in Pator? Rip these down now and install Minmatar jumpgates. I am offended by the presence of these gates. If all Concorde know how to build is Amarr gates, then perhaps Concorde has been bought by the Amarr Empire.

You xenophobic minns really should give the Amarr a chance.

Their gates may be inefficient, but they have some other redeeming qualities.

I'll post a few a little later once I review my notes.
