I have never subscribed to the idea that clicking 'undock' is consenting to PvP.

I do accept that it can be a consequence but I don't accept that it constitutes consent.

Having said that I don't have a problem with the consequence of choices, that's what the whole point of the place is.

This New Citizens Q&A post is a great reminder that you didn't join My Friendly Pony land.

Yes, newbie friend, it was grossly unfair that you got tackled and killed on your first outing in low-sec. But: you know their names AND: you get to shoot back.

Nice banner.

The problem with this type of advice is that it sounds good to veteran players, but to a newbie it just looks like a random assortment of rules that are arbitrary or don't make sense.

Now if you were to change each line into a hyperlink to a more verbose example of why that rule exists and what can happen if it's not followed, then the whole list would be more useful to newbies. But then, the post becomes a wiki index page, and, oh snap, you guys removed yours.

Maybe the EVE Uni people would be willing to set it up like that.

I'd suggest little videos, or clip compilation, that show how these points play out. I'm sure it would result in a lot of laughs from vets and actually help new players even more. Sometimes people need pictures because words are hard.

It means that you consent to the possibility of PvP

Surprisingly. Not that terrible.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

We play EvE. What is this 'sanity' you speak of? Twisted


But all jokes aside, although it has been repeated over the years many times in various forms and in various places, the advice and warnings given in Op's post are still very valid and sound.

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......
