Trolls can park themselves on these things by accessing the console and keeping the window open to prevent other players from accessing the transporter system. This is starting to get out of hand...

Report it to a GM in game...

Last time I came across this, several folks reported the player and within a few minutes he/she mysteriously disappeared.

When I see this I just changes instances to one that's less crowded.

I know. I ran into one of these trolls. (Atleast I think). I don't understand why they find it so funny.
I would love to visit this star in-game...or maybe this one!

I've reported people, but having consoles not consumed by someone else using them is the solution

We're investigating this. It's not cool, and we agree

Cheers,

Yes. I, too, have encountered this griefing. It could even be unintentional on the part of some players.

Report them if you see them, but a better solution would be for Cryptic to fix the consoles.

For more information, I posted about this problem during the test weekend on Tribble.

Reference point "3)" in my post. Here's the relevant portion:

The option reappears only after the player either exits out of the Transport System UI or selects the option to transport away (I would assume also if the player beams out, but I didn't see this happen).

Admitely I did this a couple of weeks ago without relizing. Was waiting for a friend to catch up, so I opened the transporter window so I could select my destination immediately when they arrived. About a minute into waiting, I noticed other users moving around the transporter similar to players in KDF Academy trying to get the Bank Tab to show. I closed the window and sure enough those players began to beam away.

I do believe there are trolls who are doing this to cause issues, but I do feel we have a few players who may not relize it blocks access.

I am guilty of this same thing, on launch day when I was also waiting for a fleetmate. I had been waiting for a few minutes, got bored, and decided to head over toe Zone Chat (something I never keep open any more, because it makes my eyes hurt and my brain bleed) before seeing people cursing at me and I closed it and hung back - I do think some of this is accidental.

For sure, plenty of trolls around too - they need somewhere else to hang out now DS9 is empty, and the transporter system in new romulus seems like a great place for them
