    I have a small idea, its not the best, but the idea is:
    You can pay / give your friends points and vanity points.
    Its not a long idea, i know, but the server is just better if you can pay / give points and vanity points to each other.

    Only /give points. I like that. But i think the other need to get a alert, or something like that. And there need to be a minimum

    Sorry, but I don't really like the idea.

    1) For points - A friend who doesn't go on Cubecraft often and who isn't an active member could just play 12 hours of a game with a friend (who is active and wants to get more items) on which you get lots of points and then just gives the points to the friend who is active. I think that is a little bit unfair.

    2) Vanity Points - A donor could give points to a non-donor when these points are mean to be for donors only.

    Also, by adding this, I think players would start begging in lobbies for points from other players who have tons of points. Points should be earnt from winning games and not from begging in lobbies in my opinion.

    Thats what i mean, Ned. I find, that the option needs to be in the server to /give your friends points.

    the problem I see is. People using alts to do things like the true challenge achievement and then just sending the rewards to his main account.

    I like this idea. If someone was recommended by a friend to the server they could give them some points for kits to start of and that would mean it would give them more of a fair chance in game. Vanity points I'm not sure about but I guess they wouldn't be given away a lot because of how long you have to wait for them, they are still one of the only things donators get though so if you gave the option to /give them away it would make donating even less of a thing to do.

    I feel if vanity points were to be given away there should be a max amount you can give every 2 weeks or something (2 weeks being an example, not a definite time) . As for the normal points I can't see a problem with giving them away because everyone can get an amount of points eventually either way. There could be a max every couple of hours but I don't it would be that necessary.

    I would say that this would be viable purely on the basis that you get taxed for it. Point farming would be overpowered, especially when Skyblock and Factions will get released.

    Only give points, not vanity points.

    I'm fine with giving normal points but not for vanity points because it is for donors only, and those donors can be spammed asking to give them vanity points.

    I don't get it why there are people that think this is a good idea, because it's not, and the Vanity one is even worse.

    These are the main two reasons but there are many more. People would start begging for points, spam donations of 1 point ect ect.

    This is a great idea, cause now players will be sharing with each others and help them give points :D
    Command should look like this: /gift Zrathex <amoun> after the amount you can type vp/p so you send either vanity points or points :)
    When you receive it: Zrathex have just gifted you <amount> points/vanity points.

    Gifting vanity points will completely diminish a large aspect of donating.

    This could be abused by getting achievements on your Alts then giving your main the points
