I've said this in the past, but one of the glaring flaws with the server is the economy. After buying a house, there is nothing really to spend money on. As 1ce said above, there are free storage exploits in chest shop which would be a problem in the wild.
1ce has been testing a new alternative which may be able replace chest shop but still unsure about the wild. Maybe sell vote tokens for money? But then there isn't much point in voting. It would be the same selling special items for money too. Maybe an entry fee for some automated events? This could work, but it would have to be something worth spending the money on.
The hardest part about dealing with ChestShops is the ability to exploit them for free storage. Currently, as far as I've been able to research, there is no way to prevent someone from creating a Sell shop, or a Buy shop with some abstract item, and placing anything inside.
People have also complained about empty shops existing. Luckily, there is a configuration option for those to be broken the moment they go empty, so that would no longer be an issue.
Unless that first problem is solved however, I find it hard to convince myself that rampant Wild shops are a good idea. Allowing them inside houses which are already owned is the only way we've thought to nullify that exploit.
