I was thinking that since we can't give pets anymore, you could give a giftcard to a certain place like a petstore. This way you could still give them a pet but not through gifts.
If you could send money, I think you would have people creating new characters just to send the starting money off to their main character.. The risk of abuse is too high in my opinion.
people send gifts to there own characters
Yes, but when they send gifts it doesn't count towards their item achievements or anything else, so there's less incentive for them to do so.
The whole way of earning money is to do it through assignments and other site actions, not through gifts from users and (as lucian stated) yourself.
Now that I have my bakery and interns I'd love to be able to pay them on WoP. These gift cards would enable me to do so!
