100 Paper Cuts

Rated 1 to 5. 1 means it is probably difficult to fix quickly, 5 means it is probably fairly easy to fix. [13]

 Natasha (hiring stuck) : 2
 A lot of times in the tutorial it gets stuck on the hiring a minion part and they keep hiring until they give up.

 GL, Titan, Nat (Switching chars problems) : 3
 Often swapping characters doesn't actually swap them, so you still have the same character selected and have to select another character before you can actually select the character you want.

 GL (Training set thing) : 5
 When creating a new Training Set when you already have existing ones, the new Training Set once saved, the 'Load' button appears to the right of the name text, out of sync with the others, who are on the left of the name text.

 Nat, Tal (Specified char bug) : 5
 If you specify a character no matter what you try to do on the side bar, then next fight you fight if you click the fight link will be against the specified character, not whichever character you may have selected. The only way to get around this is to fight a different character through the inspect or recent battles page.

 Titan (higher specified) : 3
 Sometimes if you want to go higher a long ways, you have to hit higher again and again and again. It'd be nice if we could just type in a score and it goes to the character with a score closest to that.

 GL, Rod, Verifex, Novice, Eury, OddBird (my fight thing, the opponent/player search) : 1
 [http://www.carnageblender.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=002voo] And the other suggestions for Fexy's fight thing! ;) [http://www.carnageblender.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=002qqY]

 GL (Interface tweaks) : 4
 The links are a tad too close for fat fingered Mobile play. ;)

 dudemus, nat (clan wall delete) : 3
 Clans should be able to delete clan wall messages.

 Eury (no econ nw) : 3
 Clans>My Clan: Doesn't display the amount of net-worth forged by clan members, only their CBD revenue, which is a useless statistic to track.

 Eury (display nw forged) : 3
 Clans>View Economic:  Displays clan rankings based on revenue, which doesn't matter there either. Bonuses aren't based on Xfer'd CBD. (I wouldn't get a bonus if they were.) That page should display amount of networth forged instead.

 Naketivity (tattoo artist time) : 5
 At the Tattoo Artist, once you change a tattoo you are given 7 days, for everyday except the last the hours are displayed, Once it reaches less than a day left for you to opt out and change it back there is no time frame

 Naketivity (black market notify) : 5
 Add a note when we can re vote for the BM by appearing the next time we log on to cb as like a CM or a highlighted text from a drop.

 Naketivity (hyperlink items to wiki) : 4
 hyperlink all equipped items to the wiki

 Scr0bot (more precise date stamp in logs) : 5
 Show the time in addition to the date for log entries for previous days (for example under Recent Battles and Transfers).

 Scr0bot (chatmail received order) : 3
 Received chatmails appear to be sorted by the delivered date, not the sent date -- so if you have a bunch of CMs waiting for you when you log in, they end up in a wonky order. They should be ordered by sent date (or delivered date THEN sent date if there's a reason to order them by delivered date at all).

 Scr0bot (include clan on battle summary) : 5
 On the 24 Hour Battle Summary page, include the clan (if applicable) next to the character names like it's listed elsewhere (such as the normal Recent Battles).

 Scr0bot (link on stalemate) : 5
 On the fight screen, when you win or lose, the opponent's name and clan are shown at the very top (e.g. "Beyond the Wheel defeated The Outlier (SeeD) after 3 rounds of combat"), and the name and clan are links. However, if you draw or stalemate, it doesn't show the character names and therefore links. Perhaps change the text in those circumstances so the name and clan is shown and linked (e.g. "Beyond the Wheel and The Outlier (Seed) battled to a draw" or something).

 Scr0bot (commafy all numbers) : 5
 Many places on the Fight screen, numbers greater than 999 aren't formatted with commas. In certain cases they are formatted correctly (DM casts, TSA regens, SoC flashes, the entire Post-battle stats section), but most places everything runs together with no separators (DD and weapon damage, PL absorption, AS casts... there's more but that's all I see in my fight list (= ).

 Vaynard (equip link tweak to clarify) : 5
 Rename 'Equip' link. Something simple like 'View Team', 'Examine', 'Stats', 'Main', or 'View' would be more descriptive IMHO since that is the main screen you want to see when you want to examine your team. Make it big and bold to draw the new player eye to it. Maybe even put it up by the player name?

 Vaynard (merge stores) : 3
 Merge Weapons and Armor stores into one equipment store. Is there any particular reason we keep them separate anymore?

 Eury, OddBird, Zenai (remove/separate expired teams from stats) : 1
 The "Current" winning streaks page is full of old retired teams

 Scr0bot (make idle mode more evident in chat app, CM is no-go) : 3
 When chat goes into "idle" mode, it briefly shows a message at the bottom beneath the input boxes, however unless you happen to be staring at it, you'd never know there was even an idle mode or how to reset it. If this sent you a PM or a status line in the PM window, that'd be much better. I didn't even know there was an idle mode until last week, when I happened to catch the message; I just thought chat got really laggy sometimes. (=

 Scr0bot (disable jump to bottom of chat when new msg) : 1
 Disable the jumping to the bottom of the chat window when a new message is shown while scrolling back. This is really annoying, I've just been select all > copy > pasting into a text editor if I want to read what has scrolled off screen.

 Scr0bot (open users profile from chat window) : 2
 How about the ability to right click on a user's name in the chat user list and be able to open their user profile in a new window?

 Scr0bot, Rod (CM icon with number in sidebar) : 3
 I know this is being worked on, but an easier way to get to chatmail in the left frame would be nice. It sounds like we'll have an icon that would indicate if we had new messages, if it was also present but grayed out (but still clickable) when there weren't that'd be nice.

 Scr0bot (close threads based on activity) : 3
 Make forum threads auto-close based on activity instead of just 1 month from closing. Perhaps 2 weeks after the last post?

 Scr0bot (fix equip page tab selected) : 4
 This may be an Opera thing and is extremely minor, but if you go to the Equip screen and you don't have any unequipped weapons, the Armor tab is not "selected" until you click on it.

 Scr0bot (server time in chat) : 1
 Since chat now shows time stamps based on your local computer time (which is awesome (= ), I think it'd be nice to have a message shown during chat initialization with the server time. I'd also suggest a couple wording tweaks.
 [17:25:44] The server time is: 20:26:08

 Scr0bot (reorder chat user list) : 2
 The sorting of users in the chat user list seems kind of random... perhaps alphabetize this list or sort by log in time (longest logged in at the top)?

 dudemus (spell conflicts warning popups) : 3
 i would love to see warnings when someone trains a spell or equips a weapon that conflicts with the other explaining how the interaction works.

 GL (see supporter items/prices) : 2
 Would it be possible to see in the special store if I've already bought an existing Supporter item or not? As if I haven't I can get one for 6USD instead of 11. ;)

 GL (quotes include linebreaks) : 2
 Anyway we can get quotes to include line breaks?

 Scr0bot (stacking spell tweak) : 2
 Multiple casts of the same ED on the fight screen are confusing if you don't know how they stack. If you have two minions casting DM for example, the second minion shows the total combined value of the DM cast, not their individual cast value. If this could be updated to show their individual value with the total next to it in parenthesis, that'd be a lot more clear.
 Currently:
 Minion 1 cast Dispel Magic on all enemy Minions (843,151)
 Minion 2 cast Dispel Magic on all enemy Minions (5,357,110)
 Suggested:
 Minion 1 cast Dispel Magic on all enemy Minions (843,151)
 Minion 2 cast Dispel Magic on all enemy Minions (4,513,959) (Total effect of 5,357,110)

 Wasp (current/better forging stats) : 3
 Economic clans don't see what they and they're clan mates are currently forging for the past 24 hrs (or week) without manually having to look through the stats. It would be nice to see that implemented so it's the same as fighting clans. :)

 Verifex, Zippy, Demigod, Natasha (make sidebar menus better) : 3
 Make the sidebar popout menus cooler looking

 Scr0bot (icons with links on equip page) : 4
 Regarding linking items to their wiki pages from various places, one way to do this would be to make tiny icons for each type of equipment (body armor, amulet, shield, melee weapon, ranged weapon etc... not specific to each item itself) and that icon would be a link to the wiki page. This prevents the equip etc. pages from being a wall of links, and doesn't break named item javascript links.
 I think this would also make identifying items at a glance a little easier, especially for newbies (what's a cabasset again? armet? cesti?). A side benefit of this would be the ability to remove the weapon and armor type header rows from certain areas on the site, like what you're renting on the Manage screen.
 This could also go with Slayer's suggestion of item mouseover popups (like Diablo 2, Borderlands etc).
 As with any potential "graphical" enhancement, I think we would need to make sure these are not cartoony, fit the "feel" of the site and are subtle.

 GL (enchant level cast at) : 2
 Show the level that ? Enchantments cast at. Your team only is fine, if you want to keep the opponents hidden.

 Scr0bot (retired users/view all tweak) : 3
 When looking at a user's profile, the Retired Characters section has a "View All" link which implies that the list shown is only partial, but from what I can tell it shows them all in both places.

 Scr0bot (train by raw effect) : 1
 In training skills, there's already Train by XP and Train by Level which are great, but for some (Evasion and Archery come to mind) where it would be nice to Train by (Raw) Effect as well. (Maybe for Archery just "Train to 1.0 Effect".)

 Zenai, Demigod (clan history) : 2
 Clan History: I think that Clans should have a History of Previous Members and Stats. IE X Member was here from Blank to Blank, highest CPs attained was blank. Highest Clan Score was blank.

 JS, Lamu (drop text shows currently followed god) : 4
 Change the item drop text to use the god that you're following

 Windwalker, Lamu (regen rates display different in stats) : 3
 In the character standings page, use different colors for the regen rates. For example, 6/20 would display green, 7/20 would display blue, etc. It would let new players see how close they were to that next increase.

 Rod (rented/loaned items have visual cue) : 3
 Distinguish between rented items and items you own. This can be a simple (R) tag before the item's name. Point? When forging/at the blacksmith you can be sure it isn't someone else's item you're upgrading.

 Rod (remove old links) : 5
 Remove old/outdated links. The community page, for example, points to sites that are quite archaic. To quote Antoine de Saint-Exupery: "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

 Rod (arrange forums differently) : 4
 arrange the forums under the forum list. Right now they seem a bit random, and I think a better order would be "changelog, general, new players, FS/WTB, services, contests, off-topic, links, debates" and maybe have some separator between game related and non-game related content.

 Rod (use news more frequently) : 5
 In the home page, where it says "News", should it possibly list recently created threads in the changelog forum? I don't think I've seen it display anything since I started playing, so I don't know if it gets any use.

 Rod (arrange fightlog more neatly or with icons) : 5
 For the sake of neatness, in recent battles I feel the (F)'s should align. Be it to the left or right side, but it would look a little tidier if they did

 Slayer, GL, Shade (diff text colors per rarity) : 3
 Give items different text colors based on rarity

 Zippy (Scroll bar for left window)
 Scroll Bar for the left window too. If this was mentioned already sorry. I have a netbook and can not see the drop down menus entirely in the left window and there is no way to scroll without a mouse

 Scrobot, Slayer (Popup when hovering on item or icon w/ info and wiki link)
 Have popups when hovering over an item (or it's icon...) a la Diablo 2 or Borderlands with some basic item information and a link to the wiki (and/or the icon itself would be the link).

 ImmortalAA (clan co-leaders/officers)
 add coleader/cofounder to clans with control to various parts of the clan such as rituals, and accepting new members

 dudemus (purchase additional ritual increments)
 i still like the idea of being able to purchase at least one more ritual increment while the current one is running.

 GL (clan character switching)
 Being able to select to swap to another character without haivng to retire. Obviously, it would have to be smaller than your current character.

 Zenai (Clan Alliances)
 Clan Alliance Feature: A setting by Click of button/link by the Clan Leader to start an alliance. This would be on both sides of the Allying Parties. While in an Alliance Clan Members are reminded/alerted when they fight another member of that alliance.

 Slayer (Simplified MPR cap for clans)
 Simplify the MPR cap for clans.

 Scrobot (Train by XP issues)
 Train by XP and Train by Level allows you to put in a higher amount than you have; it'd be nice if it alerted you that you didn't have enough XP. (The way it works now isn't terrible, it just ends up doing the same thing as selecting Max, but I think it'd be nice if I'm trying to train to the next level of evasion or whatever but I don't have the XP to cover the full amount, it alerted me.)

 Rod (Total trained XP)
 It also added a total trained xp and other nifty goodies at the bottom of the train page. I think for transparency purposes this is a nice thing to have, given that PR weight is based on trained EXP (or so I'm led to believe. The wiki contradicts itself

 Rod (Better tracking of actions in forge)
 I also think it has some form of auto-forging, and I guess it wouldn't be bad if the forge kept track of how many times you have performed a certain action for a given cycle in case you lose track of them in your mind.

 Scrobot (Sorting 24hr fight log by column)
 How about the ability to sort the 24 hour battle summary screen by the column headers?

 Scrobot (CP displays)
 I think this is already under way, but the "real" clan points for your clan (which include subtracted CPs from rituals) is only shown correctly on the individual clan page; the CPs shown on the clan standings page are incorrect.

 Slayer (Spoiler tags)
 Spoiler tags for the forums would be nice.

 Horseguy (Store purchase checkbox)
 In the store when you don't have enough money for an equip the box disappears and the text is no longer lined up. Maybe just put a grayed out box instead? I think it would look a lot neater that way.

 Meteor Phoenix (Active Character List)
 When you retire/unretire a character, the active characters list doesn't update. You need to reload the frame to get it updated.

 Pit Spawn (User Search Aliases)
 Have searching for users also search through aliases too, maybe put the matching alias in parenthesis after the users current name.

 Slayer (Get More visual cue)
 Along with some of the other visual cue requests, having the (Get More) link be one color when you have BA to purchase, and another when you do not would be nice.

 Newlin (User/Character portrait from phone)
 I'm not sure if this would be difficult or not but the ability to upload a user or character picture from your phone would be nice.

 Draco (Salvage Yard Named Items)
 If we use a named item in the salvage yard can we get the remaining time and the name changed to the main weapon we are changing?

 Wasp (Lost BA forging)
 I got another one. Not sure if anyone else gets this but when I first start forging on my phone in the morning it just refreshes the page BUT it costs me a BA. So although it's still cool to touch, I only have 159 BA.. Strange :)

 Eury (Train Page bonus/malus)
 Somewhere, either on the Equip or Train page, there could be a summary of the total bonuses/maluses that come with your current equipped gear. (On each minion, not the team as a whole.)
