Id like to suggest an option for those who have no interest in PvP called Anti-lock. Basically anybody with this enabled cannot be targeted by another player. It will not effect combat with NPCs in missions, etc. To prevent this being abused, it would be a permanent feature. Once activated the only way to remove it is to cancel your account.

So you train for months and find that you like combat more than you thought you would after getting nice combat skills and doing missions. Oops, I forgot, I can't go into PVP now so I have to cancel my account and start all over again. Not even the option for an alt to become a PVPer?

It will work... NOT!
Players will cancel their account and play something else instead.

Invulnerable Alt Scouts. That alone makes this a bad idea.

I assume that in return, they wouldn't be able to lock anyone either (ignoring issues like FoF missiles, smartbombs, and ECM bursts that don't require targeting)

Plus, what about someone who wants to mostly focus on mining or industry, but one day decides "hey, what about this PvP thing I've been hearing about" and takes a cheap frigate and a jump clone into 0.0? they wouldn't be able to use it under your anti-lock system.

So may ways to exploit this.

scouts already brought up

Oh here's my non pvp character in a support ship feeding my pvp character shields, repairs, etc.

Claiming an area. well yeah you can try to but oh here comes the wave of not attackable miners to plunder the ore.

Hmm speaking of miners that can't be attacked. Yeah let's move the macroers to low sec.

Great idea...NOT

At a BARE minimum. Then the account should be limited to .5 and above space. The account should not be able to lock on or be locked onto be a pvp enabled account.

Terrible idea (as are any anti-pvp / pve only options). Other games exist that cater for this type of game play, its simply "un-EVE" on so many levels.
