    Default We need a feature to let people with access stock vending machines

    ... that way it would be more fun to do projects with friends and family.
    Maybe allow the owner to whitelist people etc.

    I agree. The permissions should be set on the vending machine... so they can stock/unstock only.

    So two, or more people refill vends, but only one owns the world (and can take wls)?
    One doesn't need to be a genius to realise how bad of an idea this is.
    To me it sounds like an excuse of a botter to refill with his alts easier.

    What would the benefit be of refilling with alts?

    Yes, the feature should allow the owner to whitelist people, and thereby allow them to merely stock the vends.
    I've many times wanted to open an RSP shop with my cousins, and give them a source of income. However, I just know I'll be the one doing all the heavy workload, thus restocking vends. It would be way more fun if we could do it together

    I dont think it a good idea, because some can be trusted and some cant
    This it a way some scammer can run lose scamming all there friend item
    And at u know not many kid in growtopia are mature and responsible,
    some will be friend and scam there friend item and acess to vend it really a bad idea.
    But if u do want to give people access to a vend there it way
    It just the world u build wont have main lock, that how some open spot vend
    So people can access on vend if spot sold or access friend on small lock.
    But I werent advice them to add access to vend to anyone beside owner,
    Because of the reason it the amount player that get scam will be high,
    And will cause alot issue, that the reason why they put display block
    With item only owner can break, it because of same issue, player can scam
    Breaking item on display before, so now only owner can break even if other got acess,
    So if owner have item in display blocks item cant be remove beside owner of that world.

    Some people don't have the best English, but at least they try. Some support for these people would be nice, maybe help them out a bit instead of saying:

    I don't think this is a good idea since some people can be trusted while others can't. This feature will allow scammers to run loose and steal all of their friend's belongings. Not many people in Growtopia are mature and responsible, some will become your friends only to scam you, thus, allowing friends to have access to vending machines is not a great idea.

    There is a way for people to "have access to vends" (probably referring to multiple vend owners in the same world) though, and that is to build one of those typical public vend shops where there is no world lock, only huge locks. This way, people can "have access" to vends (own a spot in a public vend world).

    I still do not advise them to allow anyone besides a world owner to access vending machines as the amount of players that get scammed will skyrocket and will cause a lot of problems.

    The reason why only the owner of a world can break a display block that contains an item is because back in the days, people kept getting scammed by their admins, and so, the developers changed it. This situation can kind of relate to the vending machine one. If admins can access them, a lot of people will get scammed. It is best if it is kept the way it is; only the owner can mess with vends, just like it is with display blocks.

    Only trust people with what you're willing to lose.

    Stay safe, don't get scammed, and have a good day!

    so that's why the person who is offered access to restock vends should accept them. Stupidity has a limit, and at some point if you get scammed by something like this, then it's your fault and you kinda deserve it for being gullible. There are already plenty of ways to get scammed. To solve this, the person would first need access to the WL, and then the vends. If you get scammed by this, then you're just plain stupid. This feature should only be used with friends you're very close with, and know.

    Good idea, but at the same time it could be really dangerous. Just think about it, if the admins gain control over vending machines, Then they can just remove the items without the owner ever noticing! .
