A specific page for resource request that changes as each request is filled
Normally this is just done through the guild chat. But, I understand what you mean.
It may be nice to have a tab, along with the assist/help, rally, and Guild tab where you could put in a request for resources, and others could fill it.
I think this would be a great addition.
Requests through chat do work, but tend to run into a lot of problems:
- Many players feel bad about asking in a public chat, and thus it tends to be just the same 2-3 people always doing it
- Multiple guildies respond and send RSS at the same time, and the recipient ends up beyond their vault limit
- Guildies who could help are offline, and the chat request has scrolled away by the next time they're on.
We see number 2 happen all the time in our guild.
I think this suggestion could be improved by placing an expiration. Where I see the most use of this page is for food. I often have 50k - 100k food left over after every morning build/research/train/cargo run. If I keep it it's just going to disappear. If I give it to a random guildie it'll disappear unless they get online in the next 10 minutes. Knowing who's online and can use the food at any given point, without turning chat into 90% food requests, would be a huge help.
