    Nice idea.

    Building on that, this command should show each item and how much they sell for so if someone logs on after a reset or forgets the items and doesn't feel like checking the forums, they can see what they can sell easily in game.
    Eg.
    This isn't that important, but it seems so easy to make and for the added convenience I think it's worth it

    To be honest, I don't really like that idea. Remember, we recently had a week where all prices were the same as on the main server - which would take more chat lines to display than your whole chat history can store. IMO, announcing a full list is going to become annoying once you reach ~20 items. Personally, I'd prefer a link to the forum thread.

    Can confirm, needed 16 lines of code (excluding braces, empty lines, import statements and the .yml files) for a plugin that loads the current theme and thread URL from a config file. Actually, I could reduce it to 12 (albeit at the cost of reduced code readability).

    Yes, I just wrote a plugin for the ratings to prove a point. :p


    I should add that such a tiny command should possibly be appended to an existing plugin instead of creating a new one; I am not (yet) bored enough to spend my time on analyzing a plugin's overhead.

    To add to 314's point, people can do /worth too.

    This suggestion is kind of useless.
    You can visit the news section the see the current theme.

    Further more there are weeks we may decide to not show people the current worth list, therefore adding this command and having it display the current worth list will work against our ideas.

    We will not be adding this.
