Ratting bots seem to be everwhere now so im throwing a few suggestions into the open:

1) All anoms need to be probed out instead of being found on a simple system scan. Once you find the anom it should be hidden behind a gate that requires proof that player is active. Possible way would be to use a system similar to the anti-spam techniques that most posting sites use. eg type the characters displayed in an image. Users that dont respond should be automatically logged off.
2) Hourly or even random checks to make sure the player isnt afk using bots using techniques similar to mentioned above. Maybe you would need to be able to delay this action for say 5 minutes in order to get into a safe position.
3) Audit players that are logged on more than 30 hours a week to check for suspious income.

Your probably right on an hourly check, maybe a random check that kicks in after the user is online for more than a set amount of hours.

But scanning out all sanctums is better than having none at all.

You are suggesting chatcha's, this have been suggested before, several years ago you could buy bot (for setting up web mail accounts) that had a 60% success rate on first attempt.

Also the large isk farmers don't leave their bots unattended they have herders who would also be able to solve the check you propose.

Do a search for the full details.

However I do like the basic intent

Hey this is a brilliant idea. my Jita trade alt is logged in just about 23/7 and I make a ton of money just trading random crap. When I get banned for "suspicious income" I'm coming for you.

Your heart is int he right place, but sadly, this would be way too much of a hassle for the playerbase for CCP to implement.

In short... I really hate captchas. I can't read them.Crying or Very sad
