Thank you :3

.....I find it funny that you think this is an act of selfishness. I have even clearly stated that the buff would still be used on other people, what people you might ask, I'll lay down the examples for you

1) Low level players who'd like a speed boost.

2) Upper level players who are not rank 3+ in Diplomacy yet.

There are ALWAYS going to be people wanting the speed boost, so while being able to speed yourself up, you can still also grant it to other people to help make their lives a bit easier. This is not an act of selfishness at all, this is an act to help everyone, both those who have reached rank 3 of Diplomacy and those who have yet to. So if you would dare call this a selfish act, then you do not know what selfish really is.
