Members can request the same scan an unlimited number of times AND there is no way for either the requester, a scanner or an HC to remove a request if it can't be done for whatever reason.

Thus a member can, if so inclined, easily execute a sort of denial of service by filling the scan requests page with impossible requests and pushing legitimate requests out of sight.

or if i weren't so paranoid, i can imagine drunk/tired members entering the wrong coords but being unable to cancel them and then alliance resources wasted doing unwanted scans.

I suppose I should note here that I've noticed it's been possible for a while for requesters and scanners to delete requests.

Still possible to request the same scan several times though...

It's on my todo list to allow you to give a recent scan but I'm not sure how worthwhile it is stopping this.
