    ===================[Proposed Features]======================

    Make gold/grog collect icons appear less often, and add a "Collect from All" ability.

    Status: Proposed
    Collector icons appear roughly every 5 minutes, which is too frequent, especially on bases with 10-14 collectors. These icons make it difficult to see, select and move elements of your base.
    Notes: Also needed: A Collect from All feature. Either add a new CFA button when tapping a collector, or allow a tap and hold, or double-tap on any collector icon to perform multi-collection.

    Some Submenus still not returning to the previous screen.
    Status: Proposed
    Description: Most submenus now return you to the previous screen, but some were missed.
    -After viewing an island from another guild's roster, you should return to that Guild roster, instead of the Search screen -with the search results gone, also.

    Increase the size of ingame text

    Status: Proposed
    Description: Most of the ingame text is too small, even for people with good vision. Most in need of improvement: Chat text, Build timers need to be bolder, details text needs to be larger.
    Dec 2, 2014 Submitted By: @McDuff11

    When viewing an island, show the country when selecting their flagpole

    Status: Proposed
    Most people aren't familiar with the flags of other countries. Allow selecting the flagpole to see which country that player is from.

    Cancelling troop hire needs confirmation, or limit cancel to the minus button

    Status: Proposed
    Description: It is too easy to accidentally cancel troop training in the tavern, because tapping anywhere on the pirate's portrait will cancel the troop. At higher levels, this is very expensive. Either add a confirmation, or make it so the cancellation requires tapping the small minus button in the top corner of the pirate's portrait.

    Increase the length of time your attack/defensive logs are saved
    Status: Proposed

    Added: Dec 8, 2014 Submitted By: @Kelani

    Show player and guild leaderboard rank on guild tab, even if below Top 100
    Status: Proposed
    Description: Currently the only way you know where you or your guild rank globally is if you're one of the top 200 Players or Top 100 guilds, but what about everyone else? There's no way to know exactly where you stand in Pirate Land.
    Added: Dec 8, 2014 Submitted By: @Gangrene Beard

    Allow toggling off all icons shown above buildings.
    Status: Proposed
    Description: Allow players to selectively disable icons above ship and buildings: Gold/Grog collect, Academy/Hut Train, Tavern Recruit, Unit Recall from ship.
    Notes: To remove Unit Recall, yet still allow it from town, show the flag on the explore map, and allow tapping your ship while docked to display a button to recall troops. This also addresses the problem of accidental troop recall replacing tavern troops.

    Increase the inactivity popup delay by 2-3 minutes
    Status: Proposed
    Description: The timeout before the inactivity popup (3 mins) is a bit too short. This increases unnecessary server disconnect/reconnect traffic, and is an inconvenience to players who are briefly distracted by normal events (phone, bathroom, mother in law). Increase the delay by 1-2 minutes.

    ===================[Added/Rejected Features]=======================
    Blue features
    were added in a recent update. Red features will not be added. See Status for details.

    Add Global Chat
    Status: Rejected
    Reason: Legal liability. Minors play, thus global chat must be moderated. This is difficult to implement and needs too many resources; code, hardware and human moderators.
    Description: Global Chat will not be added to Plunder Pirates.

    Funding cost reduced 70% to 15BP for 5%. No other changes were made.
