So i logged in for the first time in granted a very long time. needless to say I was actually stunned to find the state of what was left to me.
The heavilly artied heavy miner RockGarden was left as an apty in noob gear. The plasma dragon was left as an apty .. in noob gear The Chirp is still a chirp... in noob gear The freighter was set up to not have squad access which is the only reason it's still in tact and I was sitting in the nix which is the only reason IT is in tact.
The station stock is pretty much empty of useful equipment but i don't remember what all was in there. And oddly enough i have only 7 million credits in my account so i wasn't paid for anything (also why i think there may not have been much gear in there).
Needless to say my intended day to log in and go mine some pures turned into locking down the station and stripping access, then logging back out.... talk about some disrespect.
The best explanation would be that an active EL member, who thought you were never coming back, is using your ships and has them elsewhere. If this is the case, I hope he/she will return them after seeing this thread.
I also have not logged in for a very long time. I think I may have to reinstall before I do.
Well I can say myself and Shadowheart tonight went around space checking other POS after I found this forum post. Turns out EL R&D had ships missing. Grignaks miner was missing. 2 heavy miners from old guys pos are missing (including an eb3 and 2 cm4s and a whole bunch of shios from Oct division over near Hyp.. Shadow has cleaned out the squad and gotten rid of any names we didn't know or weren't sure of. Honestly its disappointing and disrespectful that we have someone amongst us who is willing to steal from friends/squaddies. Very disappointed indeed. Hopefully this doesn't happen again. I suggest if you had a public hangar open to POS login and check all is as it should be. We are going to work to make money to replace stuff that was lost to people during this.. we shouldn't have to as it shouldn't have happened! But it is what it is.

I really didn't appreciate without even asking or finding out what happened.. I am no station/ship stripper. That would have been easy to see who had done what if those in charge were ever around. My family (FireFly, Bayonette, Kytianna, Granet, Malcom, Kairy, Rancor, Raith, Rebel, Jael, and TabbyKat) all played together with Magoobie and a few others.. we mine, haul, flux, and mix a little PvP. And I thought this was a good squad that cared about their members.. maybe I was wrong.
Hello Mordikar. Long time, no see. I'm not sure you even remember me, but we became in-game friends/allies way back in the days of the ISU blockade of Amananth. Fast-forward about 12+ years... Since this new server came around, my family and I reestablished our squad (TRI Privateers), but found with the community being so small, it might be better to just join an existing/active squad. So we flew with our friend Nammoc in STMG for awhile, but real-life got very busy and we drifted away from Jumpgate. Well a few months ago now, we found our way back, but found that there were no longer any active pilots in STMG. In fact, the only pilot still flying whom I was friends with was Magoobie. As he was one of very few remaining active members of Eternal Legacy, he contacted Shadow Hart to let my family and I in. Our family is as follows:
My Quantar = Bayonette My Solrain = Malcolm My Octavian = Granet My wife's Solrain = FireFly My wife's Octavian = Kairy My wife's Quantar = Kytianna My son's Quantar = Rancor My son's Octavian = Raith My son's Solrain = Rebel My oldest daughter's Quantar = Jael My middle daughter's Quantar = TabbyKat
Now having fully-disclosed all that... none of us have so much as docked at an E.L. station without explicit direction to do so, to say nothing about snatching up gear, or even worse flying other people's ships. On the one hand, I can completely-understand how this situation would be frustrating and disturbing to return to. On the other hand, the reaction to this situation makes me feel my family and I really don't belong here. Presently, there appears to be little-to-no in-game leadership or even conversation. Our family has always been self-reliant, so we really don't need anything from this squad. But we've also always enjoyed helping others and lately there has been very little opportunity to do that either. So, I sincerely wish you all the best and do hope you will return to Jumpgate, but at this time I think it would be best for us to part ways. Again I want to give you that utmost-assurance that no one in my family had anything to do with or had any knowledge of the troubling situation you described.
I am sorry to hear you feel that way Bayo, I don't understand how Firefly thinks she is accused of anything, if its because of the squad clearout then I think it was clearly an error seems Shadow should have known you all.
As to a lack of direction, if I remember rightly shadow is having trouble playing and the squad is somewhat dormant, although I have now found some time to play as does magoobie. HOpe you rethink your decision...
yeah I remember flying with you. I wasn't pointing at anyone in particular. This probably shouldn't have upset me as much as it did. Especially since i'm not on anymore. The squad is a good squad (at least it was when I was still flying. Most of them are good people you should probably stick around.
Evo: Since this incident occurred I started school so there's really going to be no way for me to find flight time at all. So don't worry about it. Between school and studying, and the possibility of a new job I'm just not coming back. At least not anytime soon. So don't worry about it. I have locked my station down and if things open up in the future we'll see what happens.
