Specific to the Roster.  I'm not sure if there's going to be any kind of toolkit available for external real-time roster visability like in EQ2 or WoW.  If not the following would be very welcome additions:

Alternate Characters:
If "Main" isn't checked off in the character creator, it should either have (Alt) listed beside the character name, or simply list Main/Alt in a separate column.

Tradeskills/Crafting:
In GW2 you can have 2 active crafting disciplines at any one time.  I think all that's needed is the logo for the 2 professions someone has chosen, with the name on the image hover-tag to save space.

Disciplines are as follows:
Armorsmith
Artificer
Chef
Huntsman
Jeweler
Leatherworker
Tailor
Weaponsmith

Graphics for each are listed on the Wiki: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Crafting

As others have mentioned, adding server to the roster would be nice as well, as guilds in GW2 are cross server. I think you should be able to turn visability on and off like GP User ID.  It would be helpful when forming sPVP or WvW groups to know who can and can't join based on their home-server.
-------------------
Non GW Related - Would it be possible to set up a built-in widget that can do a countdown clock to the next event automatically?  I'm using a 3rd party for this now on my site, but it would be great to have something integrated that updates automatically for the next event, or even the next 2 events in the calendar.
Example here: http://serenityhome.guildportal.com/

As for the servers -- I hate to add them before the "live" list is out, we cannot remove them and if I add them now and then do not go live we have a bunch a servers that are not real servers.
Hi again Sandy, ArenaNet have now announced their list of launch server names, which can be found here.

Thanks for the link the servers have been added.   You can update in your site in "Control Panel" > General (Name, Game, etc.)
@ Eileithia I am having Aaron look at these ideas.

Thanks Sandy, any word on the possibilty of having a "Show server name" in the display options for the Roster widget?

So if selected, an additional column would be shown listing the character's home server.  Handy for large guilds where players are likely to be spread around different servers, so you know where your guild buddies are.

I was wondering if "Game News" for GW2 will start being updated again?  I don't know how the widget works, so I don't know if that's a GP thing or what...

Will we ever have a "server status" widget for GW2?  Thanks.

Hi, I am still looking into this, however I cannot seem to find a feed from NCSoft with this data.
