So the economy on this server is kinda all over the place, I think everyone can agree on that - at least everyone I seem to have spoken to would agree. A few people have said they'd like this idea, so I was suggested to write yet another forum post (thanks Ginger).
In order to have a better economy - there should be set standard pricing on the server. This would be easy to do if there was some form of server shop, where players could sell and or buy anything/everything for a set price. Obviously, the buy and sell prices would be different, but those would set the standard for the rest of the server and market. This would also be a nice way for players to make a lil bit of extra cash, if they can sell the like, shed loads of cobble they collect, for example.
Hopefully, that would bring a more standardised economy to the server and would generally be better for everyone, and make the market shops way more effective and actually worth investing time into.
After some discussion with other players on the server, there are a few of us (listed at the bottom), who have agreed that there should be some sort of AFK kick timer. We said that about an hour would make sense - as it encourages people to stay active, and would also prevent people using alt accounts to stay afk all day for things like key drops. Also if you're afk for more than an hour, you're not really playing anyways, so things like key drops (which are meant for the community) are kind of unfair? We also thought that this just creates a bit more lag and a weird economy. There would be a much better sense of community if there weren't consistently afk players 24/7.
Players who agreed whilst we were discussing: Myself (BlueClem), Teh, Dekarple, Sir_Cubix and Christinally.
I love the idea for the high level of each mcmmo to get their own tag - I think the Dumbass one for Acrobatics is great. However, I think that all of the other skills should get funny tags as well. For example, Miner could become Gold Digger, Archery could be Trigger Happy, and so on. I think that would be way more enjoyable than just plain Miner.
