I do not know if anything really needs to be done. In my own personal experience, gathering on a high pop server, I have rarely encountered anyone going after the same nodes as I am at a specific point in time. And even on those occasions that it has happened, I shrug my shoulders and move on. Further, I have never had issue with a lack of nodes in an area or on a planet.

But I guess I have a different perspective in that I came from WoW where competition for gathered resources can be fierce and you HAVE to actively farm materials if you want to go that route.

Further, in leveling several characters I have leveled my crafting skill so that it is always slightly ahead of my level so I can take my time, RE and get better patterns and have the gear waiting for me. This means that a lot of the time what I can gather on any given planet or FP I'm in is usually near or already obsolete.
