currently, the fertile specialty only applies to female characters. could there be discussion around it applying for one litter per ic year for males too? perhaps with the caveat that they can't be stacked.
As her keepers, Gilgamesh and Modesty may join any of Jael’s threads if they deem necessary.

If OOC names on character profiles could be a link that clicked to the ooc accounts, that would be cool!

Also, if authors could be italic when they are not accepted

Being able to view JUST the threads the characters are in - like with the posts but only 1 link per thread instead of each individual post

item suggestion--
an item that allows a second specialty of the same skill to be unlocked, provided all other conditions are met (second skill is mastered, unlock is purchased at full store price.)
perhaps as a "grey tier" or common item, as it would only be useful to a limited number of characters. it also still has additional requirements for use, but i think it would help add more fun ic flavor to some skills.
also, after some thought, i don't think it would be game breaking for any combat systems as only one specialty may be applied at a time.

example combos i've been thinking about--
bard + professor
seer + professor
shepherd + bloodletter

I think it'd be nice to have a little skill thing someone could claim if they're helping someone else out by doing a thread their character doesn't have. For example: Solaire is healing/fighting, but I'm going to have a thread with Ember who is fighting/intellect to have her craft a set of bags for his companion. She'll be able to claim intellect points for the crafting, but I don't have anything applicable for Solaire to claim. Even if it was just like 5-10 points, it might be a little bit of an incentive to diversify the kinds of threads we do!

Offer a single minor mutation as a package in a lower amounted donation (maybe $25?), given most characters on site have a mixture of minor mutations and it’s not exactly a rare item to obtain (from my perspective). $50 seems steep for something so common.

Ability to sort our inventory items by things like Name/type/quantity, etc on our personal inventory pages! When I go to my ooc account it'd be nice to be able to sort it alphabetically or by type instead of my items just randomly strewn about ^^;

Make it so a character of yours who was from somone's litter and is an adult and you got certain post count remains yours if you decide to set them inactive. Because its a bit discouraging that you cant set your now adult characters inactive without someone asking to take them back even when they are adult wolves. They should be 100% your character by that time without worrying their will be taken back if you simply dont have muse for them for the time being. Because then it was never your character.

Staff helper role - not a mod but a couple of people to help with skill claims and fight rolls, 3 month term and then they have to reapply, just to keep things moving in the background and save judges waiting on their own rolls and mods waiting on their own skill claims.

So, we have the PO tag for threads; a tag for Band Only, or Family Only would be neat >.>
Ardyn's family (Red, Aurielle, Siblings, Valhalla) are allowed to crash threads, regardless of private tags.

Ardyn at first glance is as black as can be imagined with a raven sheen.

Closer inspection proves that he shimmers in fire tones in every hair on his hide right down to his lashes.

More obviously, he glows like a bed of coals and flames with every movement and brush of fur. His tail is usually wagging, so blazes like a torch.

His adult teeth are in and his saber canines have grown to their full length (see profile). His mane and tail hair have grown to full length, as well as being lightweight and easily buffeted by breezes.

A look at his front paws will give the impression of hands, with his dew claw dropped low and lengthened into a functioning thumb, and his toes elongated into fingers. He has retractable, solid black cat-like claws on every paw.

Ardyn has developed a glowing mast of intricate markings in fire and ice colors over his face, symmetrical over the last seasons of Year 17 (see profile for details). During hunts or raids/sieges, he will smudge them out with black soot to cover the glow, otherwise, they are bright enough to note at first direct glance at his face. Not all his artwork currently portrays the mask markings.

He is also often bedecked in beads, small bells, feathers in blues, ribbons and braids thanks to the Ooze Event of Halloween 2021, and the Coathanger item that he got. The accessories generally are seen most in his mane and tail hair. He removes the brighter items and bells for hunts or battle.

I'd like to suggest requirements for staff. If you hold the title, you should be putting in the work! If one mod in particular does the majority of the heavy lifting, then they're likely to get burnt out and nothing will get done.

Perhaps delegating responsibility would work. One mod only takes care of A while another only takes care of B. It could rotate per season, even. Or Admins could check to see if mods meet a particular quota each week just like alpha check. Missed your quota? Missed your check. Next miss is grounds for losing your title.

A lot of people are too timid to bring up such things, but I'm just looking for fairness in this.

(+1 to Res’s suggestion for mod AC/delegation)

With the introduction of expansion quests i think it would be nice to up the max territories to 5 (so you can do one of each if you want).
