For thoes not familiar with Monty python, its a reference to a very dead bird,* and the shopkeepers endless attempts to argue that the bird is alive and well.
to me it seems that currently the following ideas are functionaly non starters with the development team no mater how often we try to keep bringing them up, or try to somehow explain it in a diferent way to make the idea seem better.
1A) increasing ore "yeild" with lower security
1B) putting lower yeild versions of lowsec - 0.0 res in high sec, spreading all minerals to all security levels
1C) "New" roid that is a pure (valuable mineral/s of the month) roid. . . that also yeilds "better"
the reason why they are non starters is that currently the developers seem more or less happy with mining output so far (after all ship prices are down and that means that PvP is easyer to do, and their seems to be no real shortage of super capital ships) plus one other detail
injecting even MORE of the existing minerals into EVEs economy realy will not do anything for miners, apart from maybee skewing things even more to the "boted" and "Semi-AFK" mining alts who will still spend their time doing nothing but botting-semi AFKing while makeing a higher yeild per hour, and away from thoes who mine to pay for their PvPing
2) Need a new mining-
-Teir 4 Barge or a T-3 upgraid to the hulk with more strips-bonuses-meds-lows-whathave you to replace the hulk
-Mining skill to help mine ore or mine higher yeilding ore!
-Module that lets you mine faster-get better yeild/mine a higher yeilding ore
-"mini game" that rewards you with a better mining yeild for being a "good mining player"
the problem is this is bascialy the same as asking for higher yeilding roids, more minerals come eventualy for the same ammount of work because guess what, EVERYONE is going to go for whatever the upgrade is, and not just the person haveing the idea, then your stuck back in square one with the same problem, wich is bascialy that the rest of the player base just will not be able to keep blowing up ships fast enough for the glut of the same old minerals that your idea will cause to come flooding in.
that said, the same Ideas WILL work, to varying degrees, if applied to new minerals used to build new items.
