Since it seems the only other potential thread is locked, I'll start a new one.
There are a number of things that would make this game a whole lot better. Some are mega - like "bring in a few thousand new players" but some are tweaks to the code that would save some of us a fortune on headache remedies.
For one, how about some way to "bookmark" a message thread so we know where we left off reading it? I know I take time off to sleep (Shock! Horror!) and when I get back here there's about a thousand new entries in the message threads - and at my advanced years, I can't just remember offhand where I was when I closed each of them. If I could hit a button - or even better, if it opened to that spot - it would save me a lot of hassle and give me more time to actually enjoy the game.
