Can some one please explain what is meant by timer?
Ghost sites have a timer that activates under two conditions:
initiate warp to the site while uncloaked
uncloaking when at the site
The exact duration varies site to site, and is not shown to you. If you take too long, then the npc's show up and kill you.
*Most (not all) ghost sites will persist for at least two minutes. I run these sites in a frigate by setting a timer on my phone for two minutes, and if I have less than about a minute and a half when I'm about to hack the next can I bug out. If I'm in my Stratios I can tank the explosion and the subsequent rats. A tanky Astero can tank the lesser covert sites, and I think there's a fit in corp fittings for it.
In a fast frigate I can reliably get 2 cans, and occasionally 3 or even 4, when I have a blackglass plugged in.
Also, be aware that someone else may have triggered the timer if they are watching you. Savvy hunters may sit cloaked on-grid (but out of range of the explosion), and briefly uncloak to start the timer when they see you pull probes, in anticipation of you warping to the site in the next couple of minutes. Or, some other explorer may have just left the site, and the explosion may be imminent. I've died this way at least twice.
Much of the API info is outdated now that the old API is obsolete and has been replaced by ESI. SSO is now used exclusively for authenticating your character.
The older info has been struck out for now, so it can serve as a bridge to the current way of doing things. Eventually, we'll remove all mention of the old API stuff, as it will no longer be meaningful to anyone.
For me it's WHs for ESRC, connection to Signal Cartel folks, and exciting/dangerous hacking. Null is for ISK, connection to other players, and relaxing hacking. I find in Null I have to watch Local always, so I'm not in alliance chat as much – but locals often wave and I enjoy meeting them.
I'm skilling toward running sites, it'll be interesting to learn if the trade-offs are the same for that.
@Lucas-Ballard it is inactive. Gorgan went inactive and was kicked after months of not logging in. As a member initiative and not a corp program, the Translations effort is a project that could be taken on by anyone who wants to.
I deliberately did not chime in on this because I wanted to see how others would respond. Clearly, our new Signaleer @Aliza-Kootz did not have bad intentions, quite the opposite from what I see and with a sense of humor which of course we love. But as @Thrice-Hapus and other Signaleers have shared here, the it often involves some careful thought (and experience, too) to act in a neutral manner and conduct oneself in a manner becoming the Credo. No harm, no foul...it's a learning experience for all of us (and thus why I love me a good Credo discussion!!!). Many thanks to @Liberty-Prime for sharing the third party perspective...it is great to see your addition to the discussion! And though you did not mean to, @Aliza-Kootz, thank YOU for prompting this discussion! It helps everyone understand our expectations of our members a little better!
