    Hello,
    I went through a lot of situations where people got scammed on the snapcraft server. I know people can record evidence of scamming but not everybody has got a good enough computer to record. I was thinking about this and came up with a possible solution to scamming. It is original, as I had never seen anything like this in the past. Basically, people would be able to make banknotes. What that means is that there would be a command like" /baknote 2000" which would create a paper worth 2000, and would substract 2000 from the player's balance. When people agree on for example 3500 dollars for a god helmet on kitpvp, one would just do ./banknote 3500 and in the trade section, he'd put the banknote on one side, and the god helmet would be put on the other side which would result in a successful trade from both sides. The banknote could be just right clicked to be withdrawn, or a person would need to hold it in his hand and do /withdraw. I think this could possibly fix all scamming problems on the server, and would save a lot of the staff team's time.
    Make sure to comment what you think, it means a lot. :)
    Kind regards,
    Zeyneh

    Hi Marstar42,
    This feature used to be in the game before mid-August, two months ago. Devious players were able to duplicate bank notes for their gain. In consequence Marten, the owner, removed the command /withdraw $. Sadly this command can not be brought back in fear of another economy-wrecking act like this. Personally I would like this command back to put into droppers and hoppers in my casino for another reward possibility and an item filtration mechanism.

    Oh, never saw that, maybe because at that time I only used to play kitpvp and I am pretty sure that did not exist on that game mode. Thanks for letting me know! :)
    I probably was on a vacation or something. Sadly, people found a way how to duplicate it. It would have solved a lot of problems.

    Currently, that mechanism is disabled as stated above. Trading is mainly used with the command /trade across a few servers currently. Scamming is against the server rules on some of the servers, which does need evidence like you said. However, it is not the server’s fault some players can’t record. It is their own risk if they do not record their trades.
