  1. My suggestion came due to me watching the barter thread from Blondekid42
    My idea is to have this:
    My idea is to be able to trade, but with signs.

    Best Minecraft Servers

    This is a rough draft of the idea... What do you think? How can WE make it better?!

    Edit: If you dont know what Barter is, here is the definition: exchange (goods or services) for other goods or services without using money.
    (if this has been suggested, then im sorry for not finding the thread...)

    Peoplez suggestions:
  2. +1
    Though I think it should act like slot signs to reduce confusion further.
    You are about to trade and item for another item
    You will give # Item Name
    and receive # Item Name
    Click the sign to complete the barter
  3. I love this idea!

  4. Hmm... Not a bad idea, I must say. It's one way to get some items you want by trading out items that you don't want, without losing money or just because you don't have enough. Some examples include but not limited to:

    Quartz Blocks for Obsidian Blocks
    Irons for Diamonds
    Enchanted Book for another Enchanted Book

    I love this idea! XD 1+

    Edit: Corrected some typo. XD

  6. Lol I am the owner of a Bartering thread, so it may be me you're talking about. XD My business is building, so I love this already. +1 from me, for sure. Would definitely make it easier than coordinating with people to trade for an item. :cool:

  11. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the idea. For me bartering is about making offers and negotiating until both parts feel like they're making a good deal, not just about exchanging one item for another. This will remove all the fun of it (which is 90% of the reason why I liked Blondekid's barter thread), and I honestly don't think many people would use it anyway. For people who don't want to negotiate I think shop signs are more practical and already good enough.
    That's just how I feel, I don't really have anything against it. So +0 I guess.

  12. I know im missign 20min for a bump, but want to go to sleep, so im sorry. But bump!
  13. +1, the only problem I see with this is the lack of materials. If you see the barter sign in a shop, you will have to get those materials from your home and find the sign again. And we all know what the nooby players will do.. :p
    Diamond Block
  14. I guess the time for travelling back and forth between the two locations are the opportunity costs for the items you want. Unless you're already packing stuff you want to exchange before you head out to get the items you want. XD

    And for the "amateur" signs, I think a little confirmation notification would do just in case someone got scammed. Nevertheless, even without those barter system, I sometimes see shops that sell dirt and they're not for free too. So, yeah. It's not against the rule, right? XD

  15. This is a great idea!
    I was holding to set up a thread manually exchanging items for gold, but if this were added I wouldn't have to do that.
