The MinerBumping Forum

People often ask me about the possibility of creating a forum for MinerBumping. In recent days, these enquiries have become more frequent, since the number of comments on MinerBumping posts has gone up and made conversations a bit more difficult to follow. There's also the matter of CCP's temporary(?) policy that miner bumping is not to be discussed on EVE-O.

Forums and blogs don't always mix. But I came across Nabble, a free, embeddable forum. I created one for MinerBumping, which you can access on the Forum page. To save space on the table of contents bar, I removed Miner Bingo from the list. Fear not! It's safe and sound, and can be accessed via the Links page.

Consider the MinerBumping forum an experiment. I don't yet know whether or to what degree the readers of this blog will find the forum useful, and there may be technical issues along the way. The forum does not have any subforums; if there's a high volume of threads, I'll split it into categories somehow (probably New Order related and off-topic). I'd rather err on the side of dividing conversation too little than too much.

The forum may help people carry on conversations about things that aren't related to specific posts (the commenting feature will be unaffected by the addition of the forum). However, I am not currently placing any restrictions on the topics that can be discussed on the forum, so if you want to say something about a particular post, you may do so on either the forum or in a comment on the post.

And with that, the forum is open.

  1. For people who hate AFK miners so much you seem to spend a lot of time on the EVE forums and this site. Now to make it worse you have another forum of your own. Pot, kettle, black.

    1. You have to consider the type of player the pro-New Order capsuleer is.

      To them, their style of play is right, and everyone else's is wrong.

    2. You can't be away from keyboard if you're posting on a forum. That is literally one of the most at keyboard activities there is. Not to mention I visit the forums using EVE clients web browser, so I can keep my eye on local/dscan and possess more situational awareness then all the Chelien Ice Field bots combined.

    3. So it is ok to spend all your time in a web browser as long as that browser happens to be running in the eve client? Spending all your time in a web browser typing on forums or blogs makes EVE online a better in game experience for all? High sec will be such a better place for all the forum posts.

    4. Ahh. Now I feel sorry for you. Here is an idea Wescro. Buy another monitor. They are really cheap... Here's a link...http://www.ebuyer.com/387133-samsung-s24b300hl-led-lcd-23-6-hdmi-monitor-ls24b300hl-en. Might as well add shopping to the list of things you do whilst you are not actually playing EVE.

    5. Oh and lets not forget all of the time you guys must spend running around buying new cats and fitting them for the next gank. That really makes hisec a better place. Well at least for me and everyone else selling the cats.

    6. @wescro - What no reply? Are you actually playing the game or just reading the monitor reviews.

    7. "Oh and lets not forget all of the time you guys must spend running around buying new cats and fitting them for the next gank."

      Personally i really like cats especially the black ones. What i don't know it's how to fit a cat for a gank, in my opinion the cats are naturally fitted for ganks :D

    Yeah right. I saw 2 topics get removed and a user get banned already.

    Quite the hypocrite.

    1. The evidence you have presented is clearly overwhelming. People have no choice but to see your words for the truth they behold with such proof.

      Delete
    2. I have as much proof as James does that he is the messiah of highsec.

      Delete
    3. That's a lot of proof to live up too. I look forward to the 5 months of blog posts that you will no doubt be posting very shortly.

    4. we are fueled by his tears :D

  4. you know reading this site is very tedius, could you do me a favor in the future...start each post with we are going to be douches in . it would make my life so much easier as I know longer have to read all the bs and silly propaganda to know where not to be. Oh and I would like to point out that your posts talk about how you guys are defending hs from afk miners yet you contantly extort and gank people who are clearly not afk as they are whining about it...just thought you would like to amend your code to "we hate miners and like killing them so pay us or don't be a miner"

    1. James 315 is being very lenient with miners.

      For a mere 10m ISK, and remaining polite and at the keyboard, they can mine without having to face loss of ship through code enforcement.

      If he hated miners, he would be demanding a billion ISK / year, or just refuse to sell licenses.


      As for finding this site tedious, I disagree. This site is hilarious. There is nothing more amusing than an AFK player yowling about getting asploded in EvE Online while AFK.

    2. on the other hand if he really wanted to get rid of bot miners he'd target the asteroid fields instead of ice and not charge any indulgence.

      Delete
    3. No, the indulgence is literally a token. Without it, compliant miners have no emotional connection to the New Order. They would become complacent. The indulgence is as small as it could be while maintaining its effect.

  5. Howdy! First of all I would like to say that you actually managed to create a very nice looking blog. I also would like to ask you something that is connected with your blog. Do you take into considerations writing in a professional way or running a blog is solely a of yours?
