    One solution is to buy some of the components. By the time your struggling to upkeep food for everyone's chocobo, its probably because you have quite a few members overall in your FC.

    If you have that many people interested in chocobos organize a farming party and buy the components to make the broom. Instead of dedicating one entire plot to this you now have 3 plots for food production. A full party farming for 1 broom should be fairly easy if done properly.

    Also, look around the neighborhood and socialize with some of the smaller FC's especially ones which own medium or large lots. Ask them if they would offer you produce for money or trade goods. A lot of times, larger FCs, tend to have things small FCs don't. My FC, which owns a large lot and has only 9 members, for example has never set foot in the coils so we readily trade our produce for special furniture items or rarer things that larger FCs accumulate and call trash.

    As for the conveying message, I think you should just ask for a calendar. Its much easier to access and members can see for the next 28-31 days what is going to happen.

I'm sure that might slow down in the coming weeks and all...but ya know... right nao?!

    I'm with this Jay. On Balmung it also goes for around 700k and the brooms themselves 60k+. At the moment we are twice a week spending 60k to keep the stables clean. It's far more productive to be self sufficient in the long run and within a week we will be.

    Also, we have a medium house, and others hae a small house. We are not all so lucky to have 3 patches as you are Xystic. Let alone 3 patches for all of 9 people. We have 2 patches for 100 people.

    However I think you miss the point of the over all message. It's not about how to manage cleaning our stables. It's about the bigger picture.

    Yeah, even looking at the individual sections via the drop down list is too limited. I suggest a change be made to "FCmemberX fertilized 8 plants in Garden1" and "FCmemberY trained Bird1, Bird2, Bird3, and Bird4". That's really all we need.

    Agreed. Some sort of intelligent log aggregation could go a long way to cleaning up our logs. I'll add this to the OP.

    God I wish we did. One extra garden plot would be amazing. Gonna be hard pressed to convince my FC to give up Lavander Beds Plot 16 in Ward 1 though. The proximity of the market board and summoning bell are to die for. In addition to the 30+ people who already dropped 300k on rooms. Probably not in the cards for us.

    I think a personal room 1 plant pot would be super cool. Doesn't allow intercrossing, but you can make stuff like krakka on your own.

    In my case, it's not too bad as we have a small house with around 30-40 members. But I still completely agree that there should be a filtering system for the updates. The text areas should be larger as well. Possibly increase/decrease options based on how many members your FC has? I know this would create issues with people simply recruiting for the numbers, but it might make sense to save on DB storage costs.

    I'd like to also propose an auto-kick option. That is, a leader can set a certain amount of days that a member can be offline before they are removed. I.E. Set a "Global Inactive Kick" set to X number of days. That way, there's no fuss, no drama, no confusion, especially for bigger FC's. It's not too big of a stretch now for leaders to be active in the cleanup with their own policies, but still would save some effort.

    P.S. Please keep these kinds of posts active. There is enough idiotic drivel on this board, always nice to see actual well-thought-out posts with suggestions. Sadly, they don't last long enough for responses, being lost in the sea of "HUNTS ARE POOPY" threads.
