Does the Call Sheet not do this yet, but it'd be cool if it did? Post it here.
Is the Call Sheet *supposed* to do this, but stuff goes wonky when you try? Post it in this thread.

1. Dungeons and other instanced locations coded somehow as such.
2. Better contrast, more readability for events list on front page. Maybe alternate background colors on each line.
3. Troupe support (something I've been meaning to add for a while, you'll see)
4. Random RP Fun!
5. Notifications
6. Server profile pages
7. Unit director support
8. Races and Classes don't stick when you start to edit any given character. Let's say you go edit your Tauren Paladin. He displays as a Tauren Paladin, then you click the Edit button. Suddenly, he's a Blood Elf Death Knight! You can easily change this back with the drop menus, but if you pop in just for a quick edit to skills or profile stuff, it's a mild inconvenience. Heh.

What format would be most clear and informative for events? Both the coming soon ones on the front page and the full listing?

Feel free to link to examples and say, "can you make it look like that?"

It might be a bug, but secondary professions are currently listed among professions in the drop down menu when selecting a characters two professions. While it would be nice to be able to display what secondary professions our character has, it is not exactly fitting with the two profession slot model that the call sheet currently employs. It might be best to restrict the drop down menu to the primary, exclusive professions, and to implement the secondary ones as checkboxes.

I know. The problem is I need a live database with changing data to properly test this stuff. The downside is you guys get to see it before it gets cleaned up. Before the end of the day the tradeskills should be back to just primaries again.

This should be fixed (by removal of secondaries)

Server alerts - would this be useful? The ability to set up a notification when someone logs on to a server, either alliance or horde side or both? I got the idea because Aritana said she would like to know if any of her old Shadow Council crew are around. In this case, she could set an alert for Shadow Council Horde and see who logs in. It would both give you the idea who's around and when they're playing, and let you go join the fun if you were available.

I like that idea, Alanna. :)

I hate to see you having to do all this work, but yes, server alert would pwn!
