This may or may not have been said, but I'm gonna assume this hasn't been said already.

Everyone knows about Premium, it's like the limited edition Fortnite skin. Everyone wants it, but no one can afford it. Those few who have it though, may feel bad for those who don't have it. So I say we let these lucky people share what they have obtained.

How it works:
1. You need a Premium account with > 2 weeks remaining
2. Go to someone's profile page, and go to their "Contact" section
3. Choose the new "Gift Premium" option

This will put up a menu where you can choose how long of a Premium setup you want to give them, and let you write a nice message to give them as well. To balance this (because free Premium is OP), you can only give up to half as much as you have left. Also, whatever Premium you give to them, gets taken from you. We must always follow the "Law of Conservation of Mass", even in a browser game.

An example would be: Giving "acorn" a 1 month Premium subscription. You originally had 6 months, but now you only have 5 months left. This follows the rules, as 1 is not greater than 3 (aka half of 6), and you lost the amount you gave to them. I hope you understood that, because I kinda went crazy when making this. Bye.

Updates: You don't get vouchers from gifted Premium.

Support, but just to make this clear, if 'acorn' receives let's say 1 year of premium, will they get a retro mew voucher?

I would say to not give vouchers now that you mention it. All of them should be exclusive to whoever purchased it.

sorry but no support. you can simply gift nuggets to the person for them buy premium, making gifting premium unnecessary.

more reasons i do not support this suggestion:

- ignoring the convenient preset premium amounts from item shop. i rather like the idea of saving 250 nuggets for a week premium, 800 nuggets for a month, 4000 for half a year, 8000 for a whole year. imagine if you could just get as much as you needed. only 3 days? get one day every day until you hatch a shiny, then just suddenly stop because you have the shiny you need? only getting one day premium on days you need it? i feel like the ability for custom amounts ruins the strategic preset choices of which selection would be best. this could be fixed by setting amounts (1 week, 1 month, 6 months, 12 months) that you could gift premium, but see below points as well.

- if the receiver person does not want/is not active enough to use the premium, did we waste some of our premium? if it instantly transfers, what if the receiver does not come online? if it transfers when they do come online, what if the gifter's premium ran out already?

- and if you could decline the premium gift, what happens to the premium? does it go back to the gifter? if the gifter runs out and the receiver gives it back, does the gifter just magically regain your premium? or if it only transfers when the receiver has accepted it, what if the gifter runs out of premium? or does not have enough premium time to gift the amount?

overall, i do not support because there is an easy, pre-existing way to gift premium, plus there needs to be a lot of consideration of its theoretical complications as stated in my three points above.
