    I've gotten reports of players spamming the /give name $1. Upon checking the logs I had found hundreds of /give commands entered over the course of a few minutes. I've given that player a verbal warning and told them if they did not stop they would be punished.

    Please limit the function to have an internal delay of something like 10 seconds to prevent people from spamming other players with it. or perhaps change the minimum /give amount to 1000 so that it is discouraged.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Minimum give should be 100, that way if they did actually spam it, it would be beneficial.

    $100x100 is only 10k. Which really isn't a substantial amount and is still what I would consider an excessive amount of spam.

    People will probably think twice about doing it though vs just $100 (1x100)

    A pretty substantial suggestion to impose a minimum limit for /give, but what if we are dealing with wealthy users that have the same mentality as them? $100 means nothing to them, especially if it is only a fraction of their net worth. Imposing a higher minimum limit would also be not beneficial to both parties, since it limits transactions and brings the economy to a halt (which not many users would be happy about).

    I think that the former idea of having an internal delay would be much better for this scenario, if you ask me. It is simple, direct and can specifically deal with these users without adversely affecting other members of the community.

    EDIT:
    Had to correct some grammar mistakes in my reply.
    I think I should have phrased my reply better, it seems so passive-aggressive. Sorry!

    Fine let's meet in the middle at 1000 then. 10 x 1000 is 10k which is pretty good.

    Limiting /give is not really going to break the economy and grind it to a halt because there is no economy and those who want to give cash to their friends or other players still can. Hell, you wouldn't even be limited to increments of 1k! You would still be able to send 1000 - infinity.

    The whole idea behind limiting it to 1k is so that if you were going to spam the command, no matter how much wealth you have you'll go broke very fast or you'll make someone very happy.
