got sick of reading it seems mostly insulting eachother!
What I gather from the topic is mainly if you want to give gifts, asking is being kinder, some people wanna do it themselves...

Seems to be the only real suggestion might of been others and i missed them - sorry if I did, but that makes it so when I send stuff to someone from a scroll trade it may take hours just for my ships to go out.. then the hours it takes to get there.. because need to wait till they accept the trade...
My stance on gifting?
I only gift cedar really.. and never more then a 100... and only when asked- yes could just do 26 but then it seems like an empty ship or somehting...
I've been gifted - I wasn't upset and it didn't destroy my game..... in fact i hardly noticed i had gotten them really.. were traded away and lost in the shuffle..
For people who want a "challenge" maybe should do a "no trades, no monuments, no events(no temple, no bandits, no envoys), OOC.... ok not really a challenge... just a loot of waiting.. but still... buy everything from the market.. it'd take a long time and no evil giftters can mess it up... maybe ..... (just a suggestion)
also maybe could just set up a standard of having NG in your capital town's name if you want no gifts (I know why make people do something just to avoid someone else giving them piles of stuff?) (just a suggestion)
EDIT: I see someone already suggested this! didnt mean to steal it

Maybe if you want to gift so bad, you can sit on the wall and be like "selling free stuff" .. (how do you sell free stuff?) and then all the new peoples who ask you can give, and no one is randomly offend by you. (just a suggestion)
If anyone wants to give away piles of stuff, I'll take it.. not because I suck at the game (how do you suck at it? you sit and wait till you have the stuff.... then use it :S I'm not sure how you do that wrong...) but because i want to give them an outlet for there need to be kind.. anyway ..
Have fun.... and don't let the giftters bite... or something..
