Before UI3 went active I was collecting an average of 6 daily bonus per week.

Now I am nabbing about 3.

I think it mostly has to do with my adv. res bar covering the bonus collection button on the herald screen. An ally of mine stated that this was likely intentional on the part of the devs.

If it isn't intentional any way we could have the adv res bar closed by default on login?

No change has been made to intentionally make anyone forget their daily bonus.

The adv resource bar state is remembered from your last browser session. So if you left it open, it will be open. If you closed it, it will be closed.

Or if the Advanced Resource bar is open can it shift everything else down, because it also covers up the search bar. It could be similar to how chat shifts to the penultimate entry from the last entry by default and everything resizes if the download bar along the bottom is active in Chrome.

Luna,
It may not have been an intentional change, but many in my alliance are missing theirs as well.  Could something be added to the UI to make it more apparent?  Perhaps have the state of the banner ignore the last opened tab, and move it to a more visible location?

I also like Rohk's idea about the adv res bar- force the other frames down by X pixels (I haven't measured it yet).  It covers the handy search box- due to it being covered I've only used it a few times ...  wouldn't y'all want people like me to use the new feature, instead of ignoring it?  :)

A thought or two.

I agree with that, it's less visible and i also forget to get the daily prestige bonus a lot now... guess im lazy and stunned :)

I also agree it's a bit annoying to have the search bar hiden, when you have your adv.ressources bar down.

evil hides in the details.

I don't understand why this seems to be an issue. Good housekeeping habits suggest that if the adv res bar is closed when you have finished using it, then it will be closed when you next come on line. I never leave it open, and only open it to check on adv res builds and quantities.

I developed a compulsive habit where I will lose sleep if I have an empty queue, so I keep the bar open all the time and switch through cities every hour or so and set alarms throughout my sleep period to fill a queue if needed.

I usually click my profile and scroll down to access the search box as opposed to closing the adv res bar.

I wouldn't say its a high priority fix by any means, but my limited programming experience (QBasic :p) makes me think it might be an easy fix.

I will admit the same thing although I don't loose sleep over it. I never worried if it was open or closed before. It just was what it was. Now it's extra effort, however miniscule.

I was doing well until that day the timer froze, I've never gotten back on track. I'm hoping the fact I overslept today will get me back on track for tomorrow after work.

Knock on wood.

Another option is to have it remind you when you change screens that you haven't collected. But that would mean giving a lot more prestige away.

Same here.  I don't like to keep it open if I am not using it.
