Hi all I as we all know at the moment the bounty system is viewed as a joke since eve came out in 2003 so I wanted to jot down this idea to see if it would help improve things.
I am going to be using the names Jack and Bob to explain the problem and see if you guys than will like the fix for this.

So the problem is simple this Jack kill bob one day does not matter wear so bob go Oh ill know ill let all the people of eve know he is a bad guy buy putting a bounty on him. So bob adds say 10 mil isk on Jacks head. Jack thinks this is rely cool I got a bounty on my head I want more. Bob is still sad because bob at this point is new or bad at pvp. A while back kill rights wear added so Bob could sell or trade the kill right to a friend or some one. This made bob a little bit more happy but still sad as the isk spent on the bounty was wasted.

So to fix this little problem to make jack look a bit mean and make bob a lot more happy and make bounty hunting become a vital role in eve is we ask for the remove of all bounty's before you guys shout and scream I am of my head keep reading.

Ok so Jack kills bob once again leaving bob rely sad but this time bob has a little tick up his hands. Bob looks for a bounty hunter to kill Jack while learning more about pvp, after Finding one bob makes a coatrack with the bounty hunter and links the X amount of isk agreed in to the kill right. Jack at this point does not know what bob has done and after a while the bounty hunter kills jack and collects the bounty from the kill. Not the ship not the pod but the kill right its self. Witch can be sold from a player with one or traded of the player that just wants the bounty hunter to kill him out right. this makes things fear because Jack killed Bob and hurt him bob may be a new person or old but low on pvp could not do much about it. Now Bob can do something about it and no be a wanted person with silly bounty's put on him for no reason.

So I thank you all for reading it and hope you guys like it, may be if we agree on it this could be included in the summer or winter patch of 2014 fly safe and hunt well. +1 spell checker.

Ok, I've read through this and think I understand what you are asking for.

You want to pay a someone who is a Bounty Hunter for killing someone instead of putting a Bounty on them.

This exists in game right now. There are loads of Mercenary Corps, and I believe a dedicated Merc channel.
Just give them the name of your target, and agree a price, they will do the dirty and you pay them.

Everybody's happy... apart from your target. Twisted

Doesn't that mean that I would not be able to put a bounty on you for your posting?

yes its simple tying the bounty on to the kill right so mercenary corps if you like you can give them the kill right with the bounty on it once they kill the person with the kill right gets the bounty.

Also, proper grammar would prevent misunderstandings here.

I think bounties are in a great situation right now.

A bounty simply rewards pilots for destroying the target, and it does so in a manner that the pilot can't claim his own bounty for profit.

I think killrights are decent, although some tweaks would make it more entertaining.

One idea I've been thinking about, is to have killrights to NOT EXPIRE when the subject loses their ship. That way you can repeatedly hunt down and activate killrights on a target for an entire month from the time they committed their criminal act.
