Kind of a dump thread where links various anti-AFK Cloaking suggestions can be linked. The idea is that this thread can used so that when somebody comes up with a super awesome fantastic idea on how to totally wreck part of the game it can be linked here and you can link this thread in the latest thread and they can see that, no...it is not a great new idea, that somebody already posted it. Feel free to add to it if you like, I'll add more periodically.

How did you did all these, almost everyone who started them said they searched and found nothing.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Cause your stupid enough not the see an issue where there is an issue doesn't mean that there isn't an issue there.

Yes make this sticky. People talk about it alot. It is a topic that raises over and over again meaning there is an issue here.

Folks, it's already sticked in the common proposal ideas:

https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=6342&find=unread

As you see there some of this "genial" ideas like the fuel for cloacking or the system wide cloack jamming are somthing null whiners are whining about since 2007.

The fact that is since 2007 just prove there's no issue, or would be already "fixed". It's only a fun collection of crap.

There is not an issue with afk cloaked vessels. No amount of petty ad hominem attacks against me will change that. Sorry!

Yeah, it is a collection of crap. And yeah, it was fun finding these so that it puts the lie to the claim: "I've searched but found nohting." And yeah, there are links to older posts...way older posts (some even go back to before my time in game...Christ, gonna be six years this December). But it also points out how amazingly common this topic is. And hopefully by linking this some of the more common ideas wont be posted over and over and over again...or at least can be nipped in the bud so to speak.

For example, the anti-cloak POS/Ship module is very common. As is cloak fuel. More generally, the idea is that the cloaked player should simply be required to hit a button every now and then to ensure that he is not AFK. Special probes to find cloaked ships is another. Almost of of these threads also contain "remove local" as a reply. Lately there has been the "cloaked ships disconnect from local" idea--i.e. the cloaked ship can't see people in local chat, nor can he be seen either.

This one needs to be stickied, because people who are concerned about AFK Cloaking are too lazy to use search or look in the commonly discussed ideas thread.

This won't work.

Like other threads relating to this topic, they will become cloaked to the ones you are trying to influence.

We already know they do not know how to handle anything cloaked, even if it shows on the local thread list.
