    Hi there! I've been thinking for awhile that it may be a good idea to start up a sort of "job board" where people could post jobs they need done and maybe a bit of info. about the job and then people could message them or something if they want to do the job.
    I've floated the idea around on the server a few times and everyone seems to think that'd be really useful.

    Yea it would be cool. What if it was a GUI with job contracts and you can post Job Contracts and hire ppl and it would give them about 20% to start the job and the remaining 80% when they finish with an option to give them materials or money for materials.

    I don’t believe this should be implemented due to not only having similar plugins. Player warps are indeed a feature on Peaceful Farms and you could simply just put signs at your player warp asking for labour inquires, adding similar plugins is something we’re wanting to cut back on; however, that’s my personal opinion.

    I thought about that as well. But the thing is, from looking around I don't believe it would be too big of a plug-in (I may be completely wrong. If so, apologies). Also, just putting up signs at pwarps is a bit "messy". For example, many people don't have a pwarp so a lot of people would have to rely upon other people's pwarps to advertise their job. Plus the visibility of signs at pwarps is awful in my opinion, I tried to put signs up at my shop originally for this reason to no avail. I think it would be nice to just have a simple command like the auction house where you can post jobs and look for jobs and also have a reliable way to make sure everyone keeps up their end of the deal if that makes sense. I also understand what you mean by cutting back on additional plugins and that's why I asked around before submitting this on here and everyone seems to think it'd be a really neat idea.

    One possibility could be if there was some official pwarp where all the jobs are advertised, since most people don't want to click through all of the pwarps just to find a job.

    Yeah, I was thinking about making one myself, but some other player said she was working on it. Then I realized it won't really work anyways because it's extremely hard to set up something for the community and actually get the whole of the community to use it, especially without staff help. Plus it would be a lot easier and cleaner if we could use colored signs because a wall of all brown signs with standard small black text is pretty messy and hard to see especially if you don't have fly and/or you run out of space.

    There is a Market section on the website maybe make a job section or turn the market into two sections ie Items and Jobs.

    Oh yeah, that may be a good idea. I started a pwarp job board (/pwarp use Community Job Board) and it seems to be a good start although, like I said, it's a bit messy with the standard signs. I might just make another suggestion for an addition of colored signs, to be honest.

    Please take this in mind ^^^

    I commend the suggestion; however, its just too much work for something so simple which can be abused on several levels.
