Proposal
1. Some sort of simple task which annoys jabba.
2. Jabba then places a bounty on your head for say 20k.
3. This means people can add themself to the bounty bored who would not usually be on there.
Justification
More bounties by people who want to be hunted to generate content for those hunting and people who like the Idea of being hunted.

New people (experience from people hunting me) see much more likely to get into bounty hunting than pvp as if you are hunting you are 1 on 1 and you have the eliment of surprise. You arent going to get ganked by a group or some fully geard pvper as I believe thats alot of the concern.

When I play for an hour or two I would love to flag up on my BH/Rifleman and maybe be hunted while im on but they only way currently is to be a Smuggler, Jedi, or kill someone in PVP and they add a bounty.

So if they dont pvp, that means less bounties, which means then mostly jedi on the boards.
Motivation
Content generation by the people that want it without any griefing as its the choice to be hunted.

Fuller bounty boards and a chance of action while you are logged in.

Entry into pvp
For people that want to be hunted and aren't jedi or smugglers just normal professions why not give them some way to add a bounty on themselves to generate content for themselves and others who are hunting.

20k shouldnt cause a problem with exploiting as its faster to do a kill mission and yet it covers food costs and travel.

Neat idea. I wouldn't mind signing myself up for this and going about my day only to be ambushed. Would create a bit of excitement and have you looking over your shoulder. And having a consistent bounty of 20K (or whatever) would make it so you know what kind of bounties the BH is signing up for. I also agree that 20K is reasonable, since a rebel terminal mission (for example) will give you around 40K.

I like this idea a lot ,actually.. however one thing I'd like to see, if possible, is if you do put a bounty on yourself if the same guild / account / city can still hunt you.. there are some pretty big guilds around atm in terms of the current population so by being in those guilds you're not seeing a lot of the current bounties which is a problem at the moment.

We've been putting bounties on ourselves forever, just kill your alt and place however much you want.
