Allow C-Store Points to be Gifted
 
Please put this feature in. People could give others a way to enjoy C-Store items, fansites and podcasts could use it to have prizes and contests, etc.

That would actually be a cool idea.
A C-store giftcard of a sort.

As I stated in the "How to get Cryptic Points", I would very much like to do this. Makes a good birthday gift for some of my friends. :)

That would be rather cool!

I particularly like the idea of seeing a C-Store giftcard! I could see GameStop employees having to deal with confused mom's this december... "He said he wanted Sea Points or something... from... oh what was the name... Mysterious games? Something like that. Its for that Star Wars thing he's always playing, with that George Takai fellow in it. Did you know he was GAY? I just read that!"

Somehow I worry that it might be trouble with gold farmers though.

Indeed it is a possibility, but I think that if they did it as EVE handles their GTCs then it would be fine and pretty worry free.

Why exactly? It's not as if energy credit as really worth much in game. Aside from early and mid levels, you really don't need credits other than purchasing new ships upon rank-up and maybe a few items off the exchange if you don't feel like doing exploration / pvp / etc missions for marks & badges. I don't really see C-Store points as being able to be robbed from people by a traditional gold farmer, unless a gold farmer somehow tricks a player into sending them the 'gift' of c-store points, in which case it goes beyond your usual link / email / website scam that most fall into.
