Wormholes essentially have a shelf-life, yours just could be all farmed out.

That's basically how CCP explained it. But the exact workings of the site respawn mechanics tell a different tale.

Don't think they have a shelf-life but the spawning can be extremely random - you can go weeks with hardly any sites then suddenly have more spawn in a week than you can get through.

From a casual observation (but by no means would I say it was factually what happens) it appears that some or all of the following may be true:

Anomalies bounce region wide so if your not in a busy region they can build up in empty wormholes.
Grav, Ladar and Prof sites bounce constellation wide?
A wormhole system that sites start building up in seems to attract more wandering/dynamic links until sites are run.
Sites can build up in empty wormholes causing shortages elsewhere if not despawned/ran.

Also as WH space is quite busy these days it doesn't make sense to "hoard" sites as atleast once a week your going to get someone who spawns a link to you and starts all your site despawn timers.

If you are doing Grav sites in a C5, you are doing it wrong.

Stop scaring away the targets!
More people should mine in w-space so there are more people to shoot!

3 weeks is a breeze son. My first wh (couple of years ago now) was a C4 (thats right) and once we cleared all the local sigs (every single one, it was our first wh, we didnt know what we were doing) we thought to ourselves "thats fine, tomorrow there will be more". But more there werent, nor the day after, nor the week after, not even the next month. We spent 7 weeks without a single signature spawning, petitioned it several times and were told its not a bug. Every day we probed, found the static, went out for a look around, but our home system remained barren. lol looking back now of course I realise how stupid we were, but wh's were a new thing back then and there werent the info sites we have now. After 7 weeks we pulled down the tower and left, god only knows how we managed to wait that long, mostly inactive.

Anyway, the moral of the story is: sites (of all flavors) are static, if no one else despawns them then they wont move. When I lived in a C5 static C5 I would come across empty systems with 40 - 50 sigs in them, we warped to every one and a couple of days later would recieve a large boost of sigs in our home system.

Phrank.....are you related to Duke Nukem at all ? Big smile
