You can delete your contract as long as nobody has accepted it yet. There shouldn't be any time limit.

They're called "PUBLIC contracts" for a reason : they're public, anybody can accept them.
Use a private contract instead.

And to further elucidate: there is no way to block a certain person from seeing or buying your public contracts.

How would you like it if everyone could access a public restroom except you, ha ha? I think you would argue that it wasn't really a "public" restroom. You can contract to your corp members though, if you want a broader contract than a private one (single person) and it still not be public (everyone). According to the article that Tau Cabalander linked, you can contract to alliance members also. That will give you an even more broad contract available and still not be a public one.

You can't exclude a player either you make a private contract for one player or perhaps a corporation/alliance (I have not messed with corp contracts) or you make a public contract which any player can accept.

No contract PvP, no market PvP. If you sell ammo you have to sell it to the pirates that shoot you. If you want to contract stuff out the pirates get to profit from your contracts. Can't stop the care bear.

Well, there is a valid point to the question in my mind. It would be neat if one could prevent your WTs of buying ammo (from an existing sell order/contract).

Shouldn't be too hard to manage to add
[x] Prevent players at war with me to buy from this contract (sell order).

EDIT: ofc it has to be a new feature in an upcoming upgrade

Now there is an idea, start a war with the intention to sell your opponents ships and ammo... The more you fight(and win) the more money you make on top of getting pvp.

Embargo... sounds interesting.

and then a customs duty feature. Now that would be wicked.

only valid for alliances, and maybe corps.

Probably base it off sovereignty level. Laughing
