The original point of this thread was to ask for C-Points to be giftable to another player. As of 03/02/11, this is now possible! Yay!
Here was my original post:
I wish there was a way to send C-Points to another player as a gift.
I have friends who play STO, and I think it would be nice to send them some shiney colored pixels for the holidays (yes, I start my Christmas shopping early, heh).
Ideally the way I see it work is that our own account page let's us purchase a "CP Gift Code" - same prices as normal CP purchases, so $6.25 gets you a code worth 500CP. Buy the Gift Code and the screen displays one of those long alphanumeric codes (or I suppose the game can e-mail it to you). Then we can send that code to anyone (or even use it for ourselves later if we change our minds). The code is typed into a player's redeem page and >poof< they get the CP.
I think this would be nice for any sort of gift-giving (holidays, birthdays, etc.), but also as rewards for Fleet Promotions, Player Sponsored PvP events, etc.
Any chance of something like this happening in time for Christmas 2010?
