My proposition: somewhere links with days number.
(1, 2, 3, 4, 5) == today, yesterday, etc.
that looks and work similar to "site number" here, in thread at forum.

When dragging items, it would be nice if it went back to the objects page instead of the events page.

Good idea.

A choice would be nice, but it would also be nice that when you check it, it stays that way. I find it very frustrating when the events disappear, so you hit 'show all', but if you do anything, you lose it again. I also wish the events wouldn't disappear off the page so quickly....that is a big pain when naming people.

Thus the suggestion somewhere that naming people, places, roads, vehicles etc shouldn't reload the page.

I think it'd be nice if when you change the steering of a ship, it takes you back to the location page instead of the events page.

Why not do an interface similar to events filtering for default page reloads? For every page action, you can list which page you want it to redirect to.

But we really need it? I think in most case we don't want redirect to 'specific' page. We want redirect to last used page.
For sample: if I get "Character Description" by clicking on somebody name on events page - I want back to event page. But if I get "Character Description" by 'people' page I want back to people page.

It is easy to write, but ofcourse we always had too little time.

Okay, the search has resulted in 109 pages so feel free to bite my head off if it has been suggested before.
Whilst dragging someone, I would like to be able to see the percentage without having to go to the player page.

Mine often drop one while sailing, set course and pick it back up. I was surprised it didn't show this information the first time one of mine used a telescope. I can't see any reason for not showing this.

And yes to the dragging percent. Same reason. We can get the information elsewhere, it's just awkward. So why not show it somewhere easier. Where I'm not sure as we don't want anyone else to see this so not the people page and it can't be a project for the same reason.

A bug or just 'feature lack'.

I not see any reasoun why other shouldn't see this. When you try dragg somebody it's natural to other can see this, especially victim.

I agree that both should be seen. There is no reasoning for not displaying either.

The link to the wiki that you click from a character's page (the ? button) should open in a new tab or window, rather than leave Cantr in the same window to go to it.

^ Yes! Can we have a link to it on the player page, too?
As for dragging percents, please apply it to the objects as well?
