The lost dominix incident

Today I lost a dominix agains wartargets from The Socket Was closed.

I am reporting here because someone may benefit from the why of it:

We were forming up around citadel 101. I was in my plated neut dominix hanging around the citadel.
Call for docking up came while a wartarget was at a 425km tactical. I did not make haste being in a plated domi and knowing I was at docking range.

Then more wartargets warped in and I was locked and scrammed, I locked the WT Gila back still thinking I can dock at any point.
Only when I was in half armor I attempted do dock. Then I saw the message -External effect is preventing docking- or something in that vein.
What I did could be done on a normal station but it seems not on a citadel. I am a returning player from before the citadel era and didnt know that detail.

So the moral of the story is:
1) You cannot dock to a citadel if you target the enemy and get scrammed
2) Respond to FC's command the moment you hear it
3) Respond to FC's command the moment you hear it
4) Respond to FC's command the moment you hear it
