    What is your suggestion?
    I suggest that we have access to /Baltop

    Why do we need this? or What made you post this suggestion?
    We need this because of why tf not?? I mean... We need this because I want to be richer than all the nerds here. ;))

    What are the possible negative aspects of your suggestion?
    The bad thing about this suggestion is there may be more black marketing, more scams, maybe evil trades or something idk all to be in the top 10 or somethin somethin somethin

    What are the positive aspects of your suggestion?
    The good thing about this suggestion is we know whose on top of the leaderboard so we can harass them to give us money

    How can this suggestions be achieved on the server?
    This can be done by.. I suppose allowing it of course pshhh

    Even though theres no harm in adding this, I dont see why you should. From my personal experience I have never used this command. For as far as Im concerned its a useless command that serves no meaningful purpose. So Im staying neutral on this one

    You have never used this command before because you have no permission to. This command can give the economy a boost because everyone wants to be on top. So by adding this, it will make them sell more stuff. People will make shops faster and it's actually just common sense.

    EDIT ^^ with this I didn't intentionally mean it was for the competition

    This bending server is much more different than any other out there and I think adding this feature would do something good to the server too! It doesn't matter if it's not supposed to be competitive, and I know it shouldn't be, but it's nice to be aware of who's on top. And it's not really competition we want, it's just a nice thing to have added to the gamemode. It adds something...

    Just because people can see baltop doesn't mean they'll go and start earning money like that's just too much effort and change

    While it's true that the economy isn't the main focus of the bending server, it ultimately plays a large part in it, pvp can become mundane and it's nice to have a survival aspect to fall back onto.

    This is by far the weakest argument against the implementation of this command, the wealthiest players are often boasting about how much surplus value they've accumulated in X amount of time.

    As previously mentioned by @Winterful, they have the option of using /Ignore and the "skill" of every player is subject to change, so targeting shouldn't be an issue.

    +1 I think more competition is what Bending really needs. Ever since they removed the "kill leaderboard," players have been trying to make custom player rankings which are often biased and do not motivate players like intended. For the economy, it isn't as important as pvp. However, as Quinn said, the economy plays a major role in Phanatic Bending. Economic competitions, while it does have downsides that I will explain later, will definitely make players more interested and involved. Perhaps we get to have the first stock market.

    However, there are obvious disadvantages with /baltop. Of course there will be evil scams, black marketing, notorious trades, begging, and much more 'illegal' elements. But the amount of drama that goes with it. It may even be something more dramatic than empire drama. One will always accuse the other of something, especially in economics and finances. Bending was always known to be the most toxic server. Furthermore, as Phanatic mentioned, the economy isn't what Bending should be concentrated about. The PVP, on the other hand, is.
