    I don't know about you but having /msg is pretty important to me and I like chatting to people sometimes but having this system IRONICALLY stops you from making friends because you gotta know the guy to have him in your friends list in the first place xD

    I also don't see the point in it by trying to get a "Perk" for ranks by limiting the amount of Friends you can have, /msg should just be a free command without many limitations. If you seriously think that having Rogue players spam staff is such a problem, just add a command to stop players from msging you OR you could have this Friend plugin but add an option to have anyone msg you.

    I just feel this is a step backwards more than forwards.

    So instead of suggesting "Hey, can you make it so we can /msg players without being their friend" your solution is to remove the whole thing?

    I really find this unnecessary to have it that we must have the user on our friends list before we can PM them. Perhaps instead of doing what most other servers do and fail to understand the frustration that members have with it, you could have a setting that donators can have that allows to remove this privacy setting.....

    It will come in handy when future updates roll out and the server grows.

    im ok with the idea and everything, but /msg is essential in Factions, as it is used for trade making, conspiracies, cords selling, and just requests or questions. So you can keep the invite and msg system, but dont apply it to Factions and Future Jedicraft as it will make trading difficult, as I dont want constantly add people to friends list just to make a trade.

    Perhaps a /trade system could be implemented. For example, if you wanted to privately speak about a trade, you could do:

    /trade group add <username>

    That way, people could talk privately without having to be friends!

    I'll look into adding a feature where players can toggle whether only friends can message them. I'll try to get this done by the next update.

    There should be a message turn-off command, enabling you to disable incoming messages. Also, can we add ./ignore? (You may want to edit that so you cannot ignore staff members)

    Why would you plan ignore if you could just remove em from your friends list xD

    Anyway I feel that msg is an important command that shouldn't be restricted to a small scope of people and that's my opinion.

    Because they won't need to be on your friend list to message you?...

    Also try making the default be where anyone can message you because new members wont realize that you have to enable that.

    I'm going to be locking this thread as the suggestions have been added to the network. More information can be found here.

    Thanks!
