Gliese's mood was much improved after he began speaking to giovonni. Knowing that someone was looking into his case and willing to reimburse him made Gliese feel a lot better.
giovonni Anstian > What did she say after you told her you had a New Order mining permit?The alleged Goon "senior manager" couldn't have been more sympathetic to Gliese's plight.
Gliese 581 > nohing
Gliese 581 > she just ganked me
giovonni Anstian > Wow. This is just wrong.
Gliese 581 > yeah
giovonni Anstian > Let's get this sorted out.Gliese was well on his way to renewed financial health. Just a few minor formalities to take care of and--
Gliese 581 > ok ty
giovonni Anstian > Give me a moment to complete the paperwork, please.
Gliese 581 > ok
Gliese 581 > ty
giovonni Anstian > we have a problem :(The reimbursement process hit a snag. giovonni didn't have a mining permit on file for Gliese.
Gliese 581 > ok
giovonni Anstian > can you please copy/paste your mining permit into your bio?
giovonni Anstian > Need to see it in your bio before I can pay you
Gliese 581 > how do i do hat
Gliese 581 > sry im a noob
giovonni Anstian > Click your character sheet (top left corner, the picture of your character), then click on the "biography" tab - copy/paste your valid permit into your bio! You should have mail from the agent who sold you one, with all the instructions included.The miner came to a troubling realization. Was his reimbursement in jeopardy?
giovonni Anstian > it's okay, we were all new once! Take your time.
Gliese 581 > i dont think i have a mining permit
giovonni Anstian > Wait, you were mining without a permit?When Chocolate told Gliese about the permit earlier, Gliese had responded, "this convo is OVER BLOCKED NOW FAGGOT HAHAHAAH". The miner had become considerably more peaceable since then.
giovonni Anstian > Well, let's get that fixed. That's why Chocolate shot you! All miners in high-sec are required to have a valid mining permit.
giovonni Anstian > This is making sense now! :-)
Gliese 581 > ic
Gliese 581 > how do i get oneIndeed, Gliese was starting to appear downright compliant.
giovonni Anstian > Mining permits are 10 million ISK per year, and they are good for a whole year - they are a vital part of the New Haliama Code of Conduct, you can read about it here: http://www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
giovonni Anstian > Once you have you, you place it in your bio, and as long as you are following the code - you will never be ganked by any agent of the New Order. It's really the only safe way to mine in high-sec.
Gliese 581 > ic i will get one
Gliese 581 > how do i sent u the moneyThings were looking up for Gliese. He hadn't gotten his billion isk ransom, true. And to be sure, he wasn't going to receive any reimbursement. Instead, he was paying money out. Yet he still felt like a winner.
giovonni Anstian > Oh!
giovonni Anstian > Just right click my name, and click "give money" - then type in 10000000 (8 zeros!) - that is 10 million ISK
Gliese 581 > ok done
giovonni Anstian > I see it! Ok, now just wait in chat here for a few mins, let me get your permit in our database and make sure you are 100% set, so this never happens again.
Gliese 581 > ok
giovonni Anstian > Take your time, miner. The love of James 315 is patient, it is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.The helpful Goon assisted Gliese with his new bio. Within a few moments, he was all set:
Gliese 581 > good>?
giovonni Anstian > You missed the "All praise to James 315, the savior of hisec!" part. That part is really special and needs to be there.
Look at that happy miner!
giovonni Anstian > Ok, checking...Gliese is another example of why our Agents never give up. When first asked to buy a permit, the miner's behavior was disgraceful. He would've told anyone who asked that he'd "never" pay. When given enough opportunities, however, he changed his tune. A few weeks later, Gliese decided that highsec mining wasn't for him. He removed his permit, abandoned the life of a miner, and went off to nullsec to join Pandemic Horde. Though discarding one's permit is wasteful, Gliese no longer poses a threat to the safety and tranquility of highsec. It was a victory for the miner, our Agents, and the Code. Highsec, rejoice!
giovonni Anstian > Perfect!
Gliese 581 > ty very much buddy
Gliese 581 > ur a great help
Gliese 581 > no more axe to grnd
giovonni Anstian > Thank you, glad we got you all fixed!
Gliese 581 > ty very mcuh
Gliese 581 > take care !
giovonni Anstian > Have a wonderful night, may James 315 bless you!
