Gotcha, yeah looks like we've hit the same issue. I don't use the Aard client,
so that pretty much confirms it's a mud-side problem.

I did turn off the clan/friend filters and saw a goal completion a few minutes
ago. I believe I had the just the clan filter on in the past while still not
seeing goal info. Not much else to add beyond that.
info goals

For whatever reason, I never see goals info. The channel is toggled correctly,
I don't have any gags or other client things that could be interfering, and
at this point suspect it's a bug.

My info setting for goals is:
Goals           ON       ON        ON 

...which is the same as for deaths/levels/etc which all work fine.

Change to the way qtime is displayed in prompt

Once in a while, people start a quest and either forget to go kill the qmob
or forget to complete it. This happens to me at times while I'm campaigning
or if a gquest pops up.

The game will helpfully remind you if your timer is getting low, but it
would be faster for players to see this info in their prompts.

This could be done fairly easily by adding a prefix character to the qtime
display, depending on a player's quest status:

15 minutes left until a quest can be requested: 15
15 minutes left to kill the quest target:      -15
15 minutes left to turn in a completed quest:  !15

Would be nice to have mob rarity reset after reboot. Might get some more
people out and about.

I didn't mean to imply that the info isn't available at all. What I was trying
to say is that it's trivial to see what's new that you can use before you
remort into a class, but once you're there it's a long list to parse with
no obvious highlighting of what's new. Adding spells  wouldn't
completely solve that problem, but it would at least make the list shorter
and easier to process.

It's obviously a minor thing that would add a bit of convenience, but I've
also tried to use that filter in the past so the idea jumped out to me.

It gives you the information right up until you actually remort into that
class. At that point, there's no easy way I know of to tell which spells
are new for the current mort.

I'd like to second this. After remorting and gaining a bunch of levels, it
would be helpful to be able to see which spells are new this mort to double
check the helpfiles and decide whether they're something worth training.

This is a good workaround. Thanks for the suggestion.

scan vs. scan
Note #39357

Scan currently works by running scan  if you type any shortened
version of a direction as its argument. This means that 'scan d' will always
translate to 'scan down', rather than 'scan duck' or what have you.

This is not the end of the world, because you can always add more letters to a
mob's name and it'll show up. But for me, at least, it often causes problems
when I'm rushing to find a certain mob with a name that overlaps with a
direction. The main issue is that if I don't notice that I'm scanning for a
mob 'Norm' that overlaps with the word north, I'll just tend to think I haven't
found the mob yet. In other words, it doesn't look like an error, it just looks
like the mob isn't there.

Normally I'd just work around an issue like this by aliasing the explicit
version of the command I want on my client, so 'S no' would translate to
something that wouldn't conflict with 'scan north'. Unfortunately, since my
client doesn't know the full name of the mob I want to target, this isn't
really doable. The best I could maybe manage is to have it complain if I'm
overlapping with a directional scan.

So all that said, I believe a small change to the way scan works would solve
this problem. If there were a setting that allowed me to tell the mud that
I'd like directional scans to only take priority when a full direction name
is included, I could then alias those directional scans to something like
'sN', 'sE', etc. and all my problems in life would be solved.

Flag to enable showing social names after socials

Apologies if this is an existing feature I'm unaware of.

You'll see people ask "What's the name of that social?" every once in a
while. It would likely be helpful to some folks to be able to toggle a flag
that, when set, adds the social name in parens after the social is shown.

Simple example:
> showsocials
You'll now see the names of socials when they're used by other players.

Then when I type 'nod', people with showsocials set will see something like:
Exotabe nods. (nod)

Unless I missed it and this already exists, with the new stat stuff I think it
may now be useful to add a bid  compare  command, to compare eq up
for auction against your current inventory/worn slot.

Stalk should allow movement, but very slowly, like one move every 3s.

Would be a good sink of clan funds and helpful for stashing stuff.

Draw SH gold from bank accounts

The superhero command requires that you be holding 500K. This could seemingly
be pulled from a bank account if the user isn't holding that much gold at
the moment they enter the command.
