After receiving so many different suggestions on which region to probe next, I decided to have an auction to let the public decide which one should be next. I have created a character named Moon Mineral Surveyor. In addition to this I created an API pull that tracks wallet journal entries and a Google Chart to track it.

The idea is rather simple. At approximately 00:00 on 07-12-2014; the region with the most player donations becomes the next region to be probed and the results becoming public for all. I need that time to finish another project before I start probing again. Players just need to list under the reason box a +/- and the region name. Example: + Kor-Azor

I’m allowing players to influence specific regions negatively should they have an interest in a specific region(s) to not be probed as opposed to splitting the amount across the other regions. Due to the API being public one should consider using an alt if they wish to do this anonymously.

I will only be probing the moons and listing the results. Taking the time to note things like who has the moon towered, jump bridges and CSAA just makes the process take longer. Time that I can spend probing more moons. Hopefully I will be able to release the information I find daily until the region is complete instead of waiting until the very end. It will just depend on how things go. I will also not be probing high sec moons for obvious reasons.

As much as I would love to walk away with untold riches, donating large amounts is not necessary to have the region you want probed. Just pay attention the total amount and chart to see which region is in the lead. So don’t get too crazy. Again, make sure you send the probing donation to the character name ‘Moon Mineral Surveyor’ only with the reason box with a + or – and the region name, watch the API feed and or check the totals to make sure you are in on the loop. The chart and totals are available on this public Google Chart HERE.

    Would you be willing to sell info on a single region to one person?

    Edit: If you are just publishing these to burn people I will share my list with you. I am missing certain regions I am looking to target, but I have quite a few pretty well mapped out.

    Edit 2: Thanks for the Isk Russians.

    • Marlona_Sky

      Anything I probe becomes public knowledge. So keep that in mind.

      • Lee Thrace

        How is this an auction? In an auction the highest bidder gets whatever is for sale. I don’t understand the scheme.

        • Marlona_Sky

          Because there is no scheme.

  • wigglesworth

    LOL! This is brilliant, why didn’t I think of this. Next he’ll be offering to double your ISK, just make sure you read his Bio first ey!

    • Marlona_Sky

      Sorry, but doing what I said I was going to do has kinda been my thing for a long time now. I know that messes up your narrative, but there you have it.

      • Ciaphas Cyne

        so all those rumors about you keeping prizes from FOTR are unfounded?

          Completely. It is always the same like three posters. Not sure why. Trolls will be trolls. vOv

  • yolo40swagpussy4lyfe

    And so begins the story of how Marlona Sky makes of with billions of ISK and never produces the scan results. Jita’s that way.

    • Marlona_Sky

      Just like when I didn’t undock that Nyx for everyone to shoot. Ahahaha!!! Oh wait…

    • johann

      Marlena seems to have a history of doing what is promised.. Not sure why all the hate. Are you mad that you won’t get the isk? Did Marlona touch you somewhere.

      • Ciaphas Cyne

        aside from berating him on various forums for his shit-tastic “ideas” ive never had any interaction with marlona. the dudes rep outside NC is total shit tho. ive seen lots of people complain about not getting prizes and the like that were owed to them.

  • whatajoke

    Once again a load of crap posted on EN24… seriously…. get some better ‘content’. LOL. ‘EN24 – Get in touch today if you would like to host YOUR scam event’ What a joke.

    • Lee Thrace

        But my masters tolkd me to badpost here, I get ISK for this!

      • chzy

        Reading a site like this is like watching the disabled Olympics, every now and then you get this idea that the quadriplegic swimmer from Kenya might break the world record for 1500m freestyle and then when you watch it and they just drown; but you get a similar reaction from it.

        • Lee Thrace

          Great story.

  • grenadiergreyback

    Oh wow, this is a whole new level. I applaud you and anyone dull enough to send you ISK

  • N3_Grunt

    I used to be under the impression that this is a neutral news site, but reading this just showed me the opposite. Using this as a correspontent for your own personal gains, how low can you go.

      Have you seen the comment section?

  • TrollMonkey

    Does anyone else get the feeling there are a few people out there who don’t want you to know whats on their moons? =-)~

    • Marlona_Sky

      Trust me, there is a lot. Mostly those with personal moons from what I can tell.

    You are creating a non-existent need that you are fulfilling for yourself… Do you think that alliances and coalitions are suddenly going to rise up because of another spreadsheet? One that probably already exists 1,000 over? This is a hollow attempt at “I created a ‘need’ so give me ISK for it”.

    Why not just be another ‘3rd party’ for transactions…. Why not just be another corp creator and seller.. Why not just be another corp POS standings sitter (useless now, HA). Why not be another lameass freight corp?

    How about doing something original that will really change the way New Eden functions and not being the 30,000th player to attempt to start a service that already exists where only the very few capable of using already have done on their own many times over, more efficiently.

  • ncgrunt

    Just when you thought this site couldn’t sink to new lows they let someone use their site for personal isk making/scamming. Don’t deny that your scamming as that’s exactly what your doing. No wonder your desperately looking for new content in articles, you need some content to mix in with this bullshit.

    Go try this shit in JIta you might actually get some retard to fall for it.

    • ILikeCatchInSummer

      Who’s the retard? You read and commented on it.

  • lol

    Do Providence. Maybe someone will invade then.

    • N3_Grunt

      I see what you did there ^^

    • gneck

      the strength of providence lies in the people who live here not in its moons

      • lol

        Shhhhhhh. Don’t let everyone know. Maybe someone will invade if they don’t know!

  • chzy

    Send me 5m isk and I will probe down a region of a your choice! Send me 10m isk and I would stop scanning down a region of your choice.

  • Bytestorm

    4 hours now and you got… nothing. Imagine what could happen in 4 days! Oops…

    • grenadiergreyback

      Not even a few “convincers” in there. This scam had such potential… *cough*

      • Marlona_Sky

        Look again.

      • Marlona_Sky

        Look again.

        • Bytestorm

          Oh, what a lovely coincidence, that the moment you get online commenting our stuff “someone” invested in your cause.

          • Marlona_Sky

            Those were invested while I was sleeping. You can look at the time stamps via the API I provided.

            Thanks for playing.

    • Marlona_Sky

      And Providence takes the lead.

      • lol

        Score. I hope it takes the lead. Either people will be convinced Provi is worth invading or see how much of a big pile of shit we are. Either way we win.

  • sumgai

    This does nothing except damage EN24’s credibility.

    If you read this article, drop 5M bounty on both toons.

  • Real Talk

    Stop scamming and behave yourself Marlona.

    • Marlona_Sky

      In all the years I have played this game, I have never scammed once. You can call it ehonor or whatever, but I just enjoy the game more keeping my integrity intact while playing it.

      • LMAO

        being in NC. and talking about integrity. this is just pure gold.

      • Ciaphas Cyne

        so that means you really must hate molle right?

  • Trance Oskold

    Guess you weren’t aware of this website Marlona Sky: http://eve-moons.com/

    All of Eve’s moons are on that site (29,600 I believe), but hey if you can do it better more power to you.

    • Marlona_Sky

      I looked at it. Fountain is incomplete. :(

      The site does not change anything for me in regards to keep moon probing. Maybe you guys can steer me towards regions that site does not have complete. Teamwork and all!

  • Bamma

    wow. goons don’t even play eve anymore, they have become $15/month forum trolls. leave it be and let someone have their fun… oh wait youre not allowed to

  • HonaChaginai

    Honestly guys I don’t see why Marlona is getting all this hate. I even looked at the Eve Moon site and it was only 18% complete with scanned moons. If you don’t want to support her moon-scanning that she is making available freely, don’t. She is doing this auction to give the community a chance to decide what they want to see probed and not to scam anyone. And while the big entities likely have this in a data base, there are no freely available complete databases for the community.

    • Hunter S. Thompson

      People don’t want content, they prefer the unknown to stay unknown for many reasons and they hate people who try to change “their” game.

      • Onesided

        then dont look at it

        • Hunter S. Thompson

          Marlona will do it for me…

          You must be one of those BlueNecks they’re talking about on the forums!

          • HonaChaginai

            If you don’t want to know something don’t look at it. If you’d rather probe the regions yourself no ones stopping you.

          • chzy

            Bro, even though its is heavily evident that you’re “retard”, maybe you should probably stop telling people not to read an article in a website you’re a moderator of. instead you could maybe send out a message some support to the article and/or the readers. Then again, you are retard after all.

      Marlona is a he by the way.

      • sadleric

        Doesn’t make a difference to .MV.

    • Ciaphas Cyne

      marlona (who is a dude btw) and en24 are getting hate on this one because its at best an annoying self-promotion for a service that any respectable corp could do themselves and at worst its a blatant scam lol. the info marlona chooses to make public is exactly that, the info HE CHOOSES to make public. why give two flying fucks when you can just scan the moons yourself?

      yea sure, no hate for doing it. have fun. publish whatever you want if it makes you happy. just dont be surprised when the waiter brings the turd sandwich back to the kitchen uneaten

  • See Krazy Arms

    I think you should hold an auction to decide where NC. will invade next.

    *fingers crossed for Fountain*

    • HonaChaginai

      I would put money on that auction.

  • Rekkr Nordgard

    Are you still going to publicly release the scan results if a N3 held region wins the bidding?

    • HonaChaginai

      Yeah, she said so in the article. She’ll release it for whatever region wins.

    • HonaChaginai

      Yeah, she said so in the article. She’ll release it for whatever region wins.

      • Rekkr Nordgard

        Yes, but I can’t imagine publicly releasing info on N3 moons would make N3 leadership very happy, which is why I asked for confirmation.

        • Ciaphas Cyne

          and what would make you think the info released is gonna be accurate? marlona’s “word” is worth about nothing.

    • Marlona_Sky

      I don’t see why not. Difference is N3 will not be releasing an ocean of tears over some moon probing like some other coalitions.

    • Marlona_Sky

      I don’t see why not. Difference is N3 will not be releasing an ocean of tears over some moon probing like some other coalitions.
