Sponge Changes: Alright I did read this one over and I kinda have a love/hate relationship towards this already. I will tell you why I do love and hate the idea. The reason why I do not really care for the sponge idea is that, sometimes I will spread out my sponges so I don't lag out. Even when I use Optifine, I will lag in certain crowded areas that also involve redstone creations too. So, what I try to do when avoiding that is I will have certain redstone contraptions in one area and normally my real base in the other. I also don't really like the ideas of towns being removed. I had ideas of building a town for everyone next year with a small tax of course. But I hope that you are able to save towns but if not, I do understand. The reason why I like this idea is that there are plenty of 100 sponges out and about that no one has built in yet. It's like the person is being greedy and doesn't want to give up the area. The way I see it is, if you sponged the area you better build in it. (i.e A store, a small town something to use there. Or at least something that will also help the people on the server too.) But I also like the idea of using tokens to get more sponges as well. Better use for the tokens imo, not that there are some neat things in the menu for tokens now, it's just I don't have a use for them right now. Economy Changes: I really like the idea of sharing your coins across the other servers as well. I think that would be helpful as well. Also gathering coins from like winning a mini game or creative and build battles. As for the mob grinding I do understand you all want to cut that back too. But there are some people who do work hard to earn their coins other then grinding. I mainly grind just because of the xp to enchant and help others out with enchanted books for their shops. As to the shop chest signs, I do like this idea. I think it would be nice for people who don't want to sell a lot and more specifically certain items so they won't have to pay as much for the signs to be put up. I also like the idea of GSI from what I was reading it sounds like it would be helpful to us non lazy and lazy folks on the server. Even when you are in a building project and you don't feel like going to the shop and coming back I think the whole buying in the menu is a great idea. But this was my feedback towards the changes. I tried covering all of the sections as best as I could. I will try to come up with some other ideas and when I do I will reply below.
