    Greetings and forgive me if this has been posted before but I didn't see a result in my forum search.

    How does everyone feel about removing the lot sign from the front of properties or giving us the option to choose between those neat little stone markers and the big wooden ones? Not gonna lie, the big wooden one makes me feel like the realtor forgot to pickup their sign. :)

    I think that it a great suggestion! If the lot is open there should be the sign post, but once occupied you could just have a little marker on the ground or on the house.

    I would like this option, I feel it strange to see that realtor sign as well after someone has bought the place. :)

    What I'd personally like to see is the Sign/Stone be replace by a Mailbox when the lot is claimed, and they get the mail system in (Post Wipe)

    I would love to have a sign like in UO where you can see what day you placed it and how many visitors you had

    I think whatever mailbox type object there is should be optional. To begin with, people use lots for many different purposes. A POT governor might use a lot to set up a public square or garden, and they don't want a mailbox sticking out like a sore thumb. It would be nice even in certain cases to hide the marker entirely, but I don't know if the devs would go for that.

    But otherwise I'm thinking it's possibly something that should be controlled by the town owner, or the devs in the case of an NPC towns. I guess that's open to discussion, but I'm thinking you might want uniformity for lot markers a town. A mailbox if it exists really should be a separate object, though.

    Even if the stone doesn't go away, I'd REALLY like it to be lowered... I stub my toes on them all the time.

    The current stone tiles are very difficult to spot in the forest are where trees may block the white smoke. Having the "mailbox"-liked would be helpful and would be cool to have a functional mailbox in the future.

    I agree they are very hard to find! Which is exactly why I want it after the property is taken.

    It's why I wear platemail boots now when in town and my cloth mage boots when in nature (the toes are safer in the wild).

    I would love to be able to customize my sign with my crest (when that's available) and custom text when you hover over it.

    I am very much in favor of removing the realtor type house sign once the house is purchased and replaced with a stone or mailbox. I dislike the sign hanging right in front of a row house and blocking a direct path. Now for mailboxes are we talking the flat kind against the wall of a house or a post type box along the street? I think the stone is so much more appropriate once the house is sold.

    That's what I would prefer. I'd love to be able to have the name of my store ON my store. Also, I love the mailbox idea. That way my home can have a mailbox and my store can have a store sign that also functions as a mail box. Makes the most sense to me.

    Is there any way we can get more steam behind this idea?

    I love this!! Hadn't thought of this before but it makes way more sense than a nondescript sign.
