Auctions to provide a viable player-to-player trade alternative rather than dropping. Lets the players influence the market by letting them pay how much they feel the items are worth by having a large discrepancy in buy to sell prices. This should replace market plots. Incentivize players to auction items by selling rare or impossible to gather items such as spawners and spawn eggs. Voting for money should be highly recommended. Lets not expand the map with the player base. It never happens. Pick something then stick to it. The map generally tends to be quite small compared to a large majority of servers, both hardcore and survival.
