Once an account has been permanently banned their assets are frozen in place forever. Faction ships, BPO's, T2 modules, and plenty more are wasted time and materials

Proposal

Why not auction them off using NPC players? This would accomplish 2 things. First it would put these hard earned items back on the market. Secondly, and most importantly, it could be a fairly large isk sink. Imagine an auction for a nightmare going for 550 mil, and all that isk disappears from the market.

Let me see if I understand you correctly... you want banned players assets being put on the market? How will that create a larger ISK sink than the assets being frozen?

It would be more of an ISK sink because the NPC auction would take the ISK from players bidding on the items, and throw it into the void. The money would leave the game completely, which creates a true ISK sink.

Assets on banned accounts are effectively removed from the economy, thus your proposal is less of on isk/asset sink and thus bad.

You've exchanged ISK for something of equal value which can still be traded. That's not an ISK sink.

Not quite correct. It would be an ISK sink, but perhaps not a wealth sink. The ISK indeed gets tossed into the void, but additional value, wealth, the 'stuff' from the banned account, is added into the sandbox.

I neither support or oppose this. Just clarification of what is being proposed.
