Idea would be allowing players to turn an item into a 0rent
0weight item with the same desc.
Would allow for example to carry strings until a PR imm
is online to do the restring job.
Would also allow players to "save" mundane items they like
without having to rent them.

why not just make it so players can re-string themselves! :P

One reason off the top of my head: slot rules.

While this is basically a pointless argument I just wanna say that
we shouldn't be prevented from doing something just because some people
might abuse it. If you find somebody with the slot
then take thier string and eat it, teach them a lesson.

Just to play the devil's advocate, would it not be possible to make
a player's hypothetical restring command check that A) the item being
restrung is, in fact, a string, and B) that the item being strung to is
of the same basic type (weapons to weapons, on-body to on-body, jewelry
to jewelry, etc.) as the item being strung from. Obviously, don't let
a player's restring command allow the user to change the slot string. It
isn't a full restring command and isn't meant to be, but rather is a way
to take some basic workload off the imms and make things easier for the
player who needs a restring right now before their excess rent kills them
and there isn't an imm within a hundred miles of cyberspace.
Of course, there's more demanding items on the to-do list than giving
players restringing abilities, but as I said, I'm playing devil's advocate.

Just a command to string to storage would be nice. Needing an imm
to do the restring at a later date...hey, its part of the deal. But as it was
stated in the last post, imms arent always around, especially when
you are over-rent and need that string taken care of. Just that lil
bit should be a big help to freeing up some time for other projects.

Just thought I'd throw in my nickels worth.
1) I dont see the point of being able to string mundane items to
storage strings, items that you can mundane are usally low rent, and if
they aren't is it really that hard to remember where you got it?
All I can see from this is a huge number of 0 rent/weight items
being created and never used as intended.
2) I really like the idea of players being able to convert their own
strings to storage items, I dont see where this would cause any
problems at all and I know it would save people that have a
large number of strung items a major headache when trying to alter their
equipment, sure you'll still need an imm to restring but just being
able to make storage strings woule be nice.
