    I knew one banned player who made 2000 accounts for gifts in the starting area, and here 30 PED ... I think this might be danger. ;)

    I could only wish to be able to take on 2000 new miners! In reality, GMC will soon be at full capacity and we'll probably only take new miners by referral or invitation as miners retire.

    I think if Neil was getting scammed that much the service would stop way before someone would get away with it 2000 times :p.

    Their is no contractional obligation Neil has to keep this service running he can close it down whenever he wants.

    This is a great service and i do it as well but with players i personally trust because i send them out with 50ped in probs and some with D-class amps also i have a hunting service i do for them as well to help me aquire hides and loot that i need. but a service like this has some risk and i think Neil knows better to not get scammed or to see whan its happening. took me one time to have a guy go out and come back with 1.5 ped in loot from a 20 ped run and the next thing i seen what him spamming in the quarry for hunting loot he had. so now i use only trusted people.

    Even though it's not too easy to find some trustworthy players, but there are still bunches of good and honest people in game. Just need time to search them out :)

    Neil for president.

    I was told about Neil by my girlfriend, she linked me directly to his forum post and within moments I was heading to Arkadia, I am glad I made the trip because joining him and being hired into his group was the best move I have ever made, not only is it fun, interesting and free, I can make new friends on the planet as well.

    Sofar I have mined maybe...5-6 hours, I did 5 full runs, 100 peds of probes doing both ores and matters, 66 drops at a time, well 64 and then 2 left over for matters, tho still 66 in all, is it quite interesting and fun, specially with this program you dl and install, makes me feel like I am playing a game trying to make the screen have as many spots as I can.

    I got off track a little on that, at first, I thought this was to good to be true, no one would randomly hire people they don't know to work for them and freely skill with a bonus of being able to actually make money for free, tho it is true, I after about 5 hours and tons of probes spent, landed a nice 75 pedder, not enough to hof but enough to global.

    Keeping track of what was spent and given to me, my losses were high at first, then quickly I slammed head first into a nice profit, went from 40 ped loss at start to over 148 ped profit, I will not say how much was used during the runs, tho the numbers are quite nice and I gained enough skills to get from 98 hp to 99, still low in hit points but nothing that training can't fix.

    I thank Neil for letting me join his group, helping me skill and also making it so new players and people who are not able to afford mining and etc be able to do something to help better them selves in the long run, with skilling, earning some ped if lucky and learning how to become a great miner so they can some day if they feel like it, mine on their own and use the knowledge they have gained from working with Neil.

    I second that Andy says... I have already poked 3 of my disciples towards speaking with you, Neil (I flew them to Ark anyway as imo its the best starter place for a newbie in the EU at present), as this seems like such a fantastic opportunity 1) to get the Ark economy moving a bit, providing the crafters, who are desperate for more ores with wider availabilities, with more ammo. 2) to get skills for new players who otherwise have to sweat to at least 50k before they can seriously start to think about becoming a hunter/miner/crafter/trader and 3) Will show off the nice 'ping ratio' as I call it. The numbers of drops compared to number of claims. Regardless of loot value, everyone likes to get lots of claims.

    Hello Neil, old ASF friend.

    Both me and my brother have thought about going to arkadia to mine. And we both want to come work for you. Do you have room for 2 employees?

    Yes, I'll save a spot for you two, but you just squeaked in the door! Starting now, hiring is on hold as I orient my miners and get everything working smoothly with such a large group. I've had to redesign the infrastructure (e.g. excel sheets) I was using with a few of my disciples to something a faster and more robust, and I'm continuing to adjust the profit sharing structure as well (turns out I was being a little too generous with some players this week). I do anticipate being able to continue expanding in the future.

    If anyone is interested in applying in future, check out the first post, set up LBML so it's tracking you automatically (you can do this cheap with the rookie terramaster) and watch this thread for updates.

    Thanks John, I've already taken care of it. I was originally using excel but it wasn't quite up to the task of managing so much data, so I have moved on to more powerful tools. All the major functions are currently working under the new system, though it is still a work in progress.

    As John said, I'm GMT -4 or -5 depending on whether it's summer (daylight savings time) or winter. It's currently summer so GMT -4.

    I've got a number of miners in your time zone and they can usually catch me online around the normal "after work" time since I tend to stay logged in late.

    Once I get myself a little more organized I'll be posting my online & available times to make trading more predictable. Send me a PM with your full avatar name and I'll add you to the waiting list. Thanks for your interest!
