1) Since not everyone is in the UK - put the current server time on the title bar somewhere next to the season indicator/Moon phase indicator.

2) Combine some windows or add shortcuts to jump from one to the other:

i) Research and library
ii) Trade summary and market place.

3) More info about what you need to make stuff and what buildings do.  E.g. it's only when you have a barracks built and the right skills trained that you find out that a spearman needs leather - need a way to find that out earlier to aid planning research etc.

1. Very good point - above the Current City Name / Player Name on the top right hand side seems like the best candidate.

2. i) Research Summary --> library works (via the Research button), but Library --> Research Summary is a good idea

3. Very definitely.  I'm writing 2 more guides today:
a) Production / Buildings
b) Combat and Units

Also suggest the ability to email a message to all members in your Alliance.
Put this post elsewhere but thought Id mention it here.
 
Would be nice to have a button "Email Alliance" rather than just "Send Message" when Alliances get big it is going to be really frustrating not tohave this feature.

Yes - already on the to-do list!

You can actually email the entire alliance currently (if you have the suitable permissions to do so in your role) - simply type in the word "Alliance" as the recipient.  The lookup will say "No player found", but ignore that, then press send as normal, and it should go to the whole alliance.

Would be nice to be able to scroll through the rankings to see everyone who isn't top 10 and isn't within 10 places of me.

I know I keep asking for stuff - tell me when it becomes annoying.

Another suggestion of mine would have to be that when changing taxation rate, there is a forcast of the outcome that change will make.

Was already there pre-launch, TT, but got pulled when we realised that the numbers it was giving out were slightly wrong!  

We're waiting for a sane moment to work out exactly why the numbers were wrong, and then put it back. Personally, I think it was the alliance taxation that killed it, but what do I know...  back with the dev team!

But it was very cool - as you moved the slider, it told you exactly what the outcome would be if you committed those changes.  But it's temporarily sleeping, till we know the numbers are right.
