We regard a guest miner as a miner that mines moon rocks in any belt created by EG-H that does not donate directly or take part in our weekly mining operations where all mined materials are collected for the corp.
The first thing to remember is, that although the belts are technically public, they require a station to extract the ore from the moon which is funded 100% by the corporation owning the station that "blows" the moon so they are not free.
To make the station viable, our members take part in our mining ops once per week to mine ore that is directly donated to the corp. For this, all members that take part can mine the moon belts in the knowledge that the station can still operate and provide moon ore on an ongoing basis.
With the public nature of the belts, we politely ask guest miners to mine the previous belt as there is generally a significant amount of ore left in the previous belt after the next one has been extracted so we regard the previous belt paid for.
However, we do respect the needs of our guest miners should the previous belt be empty, but to earn this, our supporting corporations and members expect that same respect in return. To gain the respect from our supporting corporations and members we ask our guests to follow these simple rules:
1. Please ask permission to use the belt so we can let you know if the previous belt is active or the current belt is safe to use.
2. If the conditions are not favourable, you will be given a time when it will be favourable. Please follow this advice as the belt may not be safe - some of our partners who profit from our activities may see this as an infraction and may not be as friendly as we are. Not even we cross those guys.
3. If the conditions are favourable, we ask you to follow these guidelines for the benefit of all:
3a. Choose a spot no less than 80km from the nearest miner to avoid crossing lasers and common rock mining.
3b. Do not bot mine. This is indiscriminate and annoys our partners and members. You may be bumped and your drones stolen.
3c. Be polite to other partners and members in local and in our public channel.
3d. Donate to the corp. Go to the main station and contract to the station corp. As a guideline our members donate 1.5 hours mining a week or more if they feel they can.
3e. If you are following 3a, there is no need to go further, but if you are mistakenly closer or a member is mistakenly close to you, give way to that member and avoid mining the same roids.
If we all follow these rules, we will all get along just fine. If not, you will be a ninja miner. Our partners love to test their concord resistance on ninjas.
