Fingers of Fury!

Just started working on our WoW site a couple of weeks ago and it'sgoing great! In fact, we love it and we're nearly ready to plunk downthe cash to sponsor it. (A great value, I might add!)

There are a few things we'd like to suggest regarding the Guild Bank(which is an awesome feature that's turned out to be quite a hit withour members).

Currently, the bank is broken down into categories. Great that you cansort out items by category, but we could use more categories. Suggest: Container and Trade Goodsto start off with. It would be incredibly awesome if we could addsubcategories to the categories as well, such as breaking down armorand weapon types. At this time, there's no way to add whether a swordis 2-hand, 1-hand, main except for adding it to the details or eventhat it's a sword and not a mace or dagger.

Armor can be classified by class (leather, mail, etc.), but there's noway to sort by this class when viewing the armor items if you're apriest who can only wear cloth and you're not interested in mail armor.

It would be very nice if members could view the items in a table whichcould be sorted by armor class, weapon type, level, and rarity. I'vetaken to including the rarity and level required in the name just tomake it easier for members to find something they can use (i.e., UNC 14: Willow Branch of the Owl stands for Uncommon Level 14 Req'd :Weapon). I'd like to see this data in the listing.

Regarding recipes, there is no input box for which tradeskill theyrequire. Hence, my naming convention includes this info in the itemname, as in R-ENC : Formula: Enchant Chest - Minor Mana.

Finally, as our members are currently still building raid points andsometimes prefer to purchase lesser items from the guild at set pricesas opposed to using their raid points, it'd be nice to be able to inputa cash value for the item (again, we're currently using the detailsinput for this) and not have the raid point value deductedautomatically, but perhaps offer the admin a choice of deducting RPs ornot (a checkbox maybe).

We've also noticed that alt characters cannot request items (unlesswe're mistaken), so it's difficult for the treasurer to know whichcharacter to send the item to. Can there be a way for members to choosewhich character is requesting the item when they send the request?

Surely, this is a lot, but we hope this feedback helps. We're not inthe least disappointed with the way guildportal is working out, so ifthese don't get done, it's not like we're gonna get cranky or anything.But thanks anyway!

Great post.  My guild is just starting to use the bank as well and I came here to post these very same suggestions.
  • Better categories
  • Better category-specific attributes
  • Better sorting and filtering

Not sure if this is possible or not, but EQ2 just released a way to view your in-game guild bank online.. wonder if there's a way to incorporate that into the GP site?? I don't think they're using XML for anything yet

Bump.  This is the number one feature request that my guild members are asking for.  Is anything in the works?

I would still *love* to see additional column listings on the bank pages that would allow users to sort/filter.  The bank could use a big overhaul in my opinion.
