Mailbox on the Wandering Isle

General Discussion
Can there be mailboxes on the Wandering Isle? So that players can send things like gold, heirlooms, clothes for their newly monks characters.
They don't have them there due to being neutral until the you pick a faction.
You have no idea the Alliance/Horde exist, and there's no way for the mailbox to magically receive mail. There are no trade/travel routes to the Wandering Isle, while there are for everywhere else. And, yes, for the gameplay reason that you are neutral.

Monks start in their race's zone, not on the Wandering Isle. Only the Pandaren start there.
Nope, wait till level 12 like all the other pandas.
Doing this would allow you to transfer massive quantities of goods between factions without penalty. I'm pretty sure that would break the game in half.
If mailboxes are ever put on Wandering Isle again it will be exclusively for heirlooms, if things like gold or cloth could be transferred people would just used pandaren as intermediates to send things cross faction.
Its a big wondering turtle from the lore no u don't know where to send the mail so gotta wait till level 11 or 12 sorry guys , turtle is not really an island ita a big friggin wondering turtle:)
Blizz has explained this more than once. There are no mailboxes on the Wandering Isle, as you have not yet chosen a faction. Once you choose a faction, and get yourself to Orgrimar or Stormwind, you can send your toon money, heirlooms, and anything else you want.

The reason you can't send stuff to a factionless toon? Because you'd be able to easily move money between alliance and horde toons, which Blizz does not want you doing.

Someone does not get the idea of people living on the back of a turtle in the ocean with no contact, in addition to everyone is faction neutral until the moment they get done and leave.
^lol puns.

And mail either wouldn't work, or it would be able to sent to both factions... as much as I like that idea, it's not an intended feature of Blizzard's at the moment.
Would make it ezmode to transfer gold between Alliance & Horde.
So...
No.
a solution to the problem would be once only one faction could send mail to the panda per panda and if they chose the other faction it auto sends it back to the faction it was from unless it is a heirloom or money

Or, they could not screw up the way it works. It was designed entirely around leaving at the same point, though people grinding mobs could always get higher than designed. There's honestly no need to send heirlooms.
How would you send mail to a wandering turtle other than via message in a bottle?

Ah no. This would be impossible to code.

And why the (bleep) do people want so badly to send mail to a factionless toon? Looms are virtually useless on the turtle - level scaling would in all likelihood stop you at 15 - and virtually no boa's that aren't looms are useful in ANY sense of the word. Archaeology boas have level reqs such that no lv12 can use them.

Anything else just could not be sent due to faction restrictions.

And for the finishing blow to the idea, Blizzard has said they won't do it. I can tell that Blizzard doesn't want to back down on this idea.
