Issue:
The only containers available that are large and cheap for us to sort all the junk in our hangars are station containers. Unfortunately, they are all audit logged. They can't be deleted for a LONG time after use, and in the meantime they not only clog the database with their presence, they also contain huge logs. This may not affect the servers much, but it surely does them no GOOD. At the same time, those of us that switch stations now and then, leave a trail of cans clogging our assets windows. I wouldn't be surprised if there's several million unused station containers in eve - and just as many IN use - that don't need the security and logs.

Solution:
Give us a plain container. Large. That's all. It's a very simple item to add, and probably won't take a dev more than 10 minutes to do - though seeding the sales on all stations will probably take a bit longer.

Item:
Name: Insecure Station Container
Capacity: Like a Station Container
Volume: Like a Station Container
Mass: Like a Station Container
Security: NONE. No audit, no password, no logs, no nothing.

Simple, isn't it?

Lordy yes. Station containers are a gargantuan ****-off at the moment, because they do aggravating things like locking all my items, or being untrashable. I understand why logged containers are nice in certain aspects, and why corp hangars really ought to use them, but for private use they're like officious bureaucrats living in your storage locker.

Supported...big time. I have a station container that I never used, but I set the password and now I can't reprocess it/sell it for 3 weeks! WTF?

Put a password on it and you got my vote. (minus the log)

But yeah... either way... sounds good to me.

I really don't think that I want to own any insecure items in this game, except for maybe prostitutes and grad students.

However, I fully support UNsecure containers.

This definately needs tweaking.

I don't see the need for seperate containers.

Just disable auditing by default on all containers.

Require people to enable auditing on the configuration options for the container.

The worst part of this problem is that a failed attempt to repackage the container makes a new entry into the log: a pre-mature attempt to repackage the container will force you to wait another 3 weeks.

That and we need the option to export the logs as the in-game viewer just doesn't cut it.

Yeah, a no-log station container to sort your stuff with without locking it down for two weeks would be extremely convenient.

Definately a good idea, I know I've got a lot of Secure Containers Dotted around Various Personal Hangers from assorted moves. Like it was said earlier, this can't be good for the Database having to keep track of both the Container and the associated Logs for every single one of these, especially when you should be the only person with access to your own hanger and so have no need for the Auditing Function for things stored there.

It's more the fact that the Secure Containers tend to be Cheaper than an Unsecured Container of the Same Size. Either that or you get more Volume (usually 10 Times as much) for the Same Money by Going Secure.

It would be nice since configuration between computers isnt even standardized I cant log into two computers and have it not lock my items.
