Situation: An alliance is having a mining ops in high sec. Most of the players are not in the same corp, just the same alliance. All miners/haulers are in gang.
A can-flipper comes by, steals ore from the can, and makes his escape. The current rules makes the can-flipper red to the owner of the can, and the corporation that the owner is in. Not to the gang or to the alliance.

Please put an x at the option you agree on as a CSM candidate

[] The current rules are ok. Nothing needs changing

[] The can flipper should be red to the entire gang after stealing, no matter if the gang members are in the same corp as the owner of the can or not.

Because I support solo players and those in small corps, I'd say the can flipper should be red to the gang.

I'd like to encourage people to group together on a casual basis, without the need for corp/alliance structures to come into play.

But I'd like to see this as some conditional option where-by the jet-can put out has the option of allowing the creator to grant joint ownership to all gang members present at the point in time it was created, so the can flipper is red to those individuals alone.

Avoids adding gang members after the event .... a potential issue I think.

I do some ore theft myself... Well actually I don't do anything with the ore. I just want someone to shoot at me, so I like the idea of being flashy to the entire gang. I totally agree though that it should only apply to gang members as of the time of the incident. Don't want the miners to have too much of an advantage after all.

BUT, i want to know the reason why ccp didnt do this in the first place.

Thiefes need also to get room for their job.. never lose sight on the balance.

Jetcans are for jettisoning junk you don't want.They are not for mining.

How about looting wrecks in missions? Or looting a wreck left by a war target? how about people can baiting? Or is it just cans being used for mining that should give you this sort of aggro? because I don't see the difference.

Bad move, poorly thought out.

I also enjoy flipping cans every now and then, and i have to admit, it would certanly make everything more interesting. I also like the idea of granting ownership to the can at will. This would also make open up for outside corps or players to rent out their services as protection to the mining op.

edit: spelling

Gang members have access to the can so they should be involed in the aggro as well.

I have never liked the whole jet can aggro mechanic and think the whole system should be revisited.
