  1. Hello everybody

    Alot of the players on EMC dont visit the site regularly.
    I am suggesting some sort of /message function which will work like /tell but will be saved until the other person logs on again.
    The reason for this is that sometimes you wish to tell a player something like "I dropped your stuff in a chest" but their not online so you cant contact them.

    I know that pm works better on the webpage but not all users use the webpage, Unfortunately :(

    So what do you say?


    I could cost rupees so that no-one can spam someone with messages :)

  3. I can't think of any reason why this
    wouldn't be a good idea. Thumbs up from me :)

  4. If you mean like /mail on Bukkit Essentials then I love the idea! :D However, I'm a little worried that this would strain the server since it would have to store everyone's messages across every server.

  5. Thats the thing... things that strain the server are things that run "on tick"..

    Mail does not run on tick, so it doesnt add any additional load to the server other than the memory required to run it.

    I've been brainstorming some overall "social" ideas... in the future you may see something about them :) but as you see... got alot on plate already.
  6. Oh wow, that's amazing news! :D This feature really would be amazing to have, although may I request that when you get a /mail message, it comes through as a /tell if you're online. I'm 99% Essentials doesn't do that and it's the one thing I'd like added.
  7. That is a great idea, a few minutes ago I was going to tell JackBiggin I would only be able to give him a chest full of cakes (due to also needing to stock up for my DKR party), and then I realized he wasn't on. BTW Jack I can only get you a chest full of cakes for now. After I finish stocking for my party, which should be before July 20th I can give you another chest or two.
  8. just thinking about this amazing idea!!
  9. ohhh have it so that after a certian time they delete stop griefers that way
