Now if some of my suggested changes for clan halls could be added too...
And I completely disagree with Vass' sentiment that people will complain about anything. People -don't- complain about anything, usually they aren't vocal about good changes unless an imm posts about it, but no way do people complain about every change.

Its 1 line of text, that does not affect or physically harm you.
I think its safe to say, we get it.

The first is that although Alyria isn't the same as the real world, it does have it's own particular flavour of reality. Whilst the original change was obviously in preparation of the other (extremely good) additions, in itself it completely jars with the way I see the world, and the way I wanted my house to appear.
I don't know whether you think that it's so trivial that no-one could possibly care, or whether it's because you think that I personally wouldn't care so I must be arguing for the sake of it. Maybe it's because I haven't spent my hard-earned cash on extra rooms for my house so I can't be that interested. I don't know, but I do know that you could make everyone happy with such a little gesture. The only explanation you offered for the original change was nonsensical, and when I asked again with the later changes I was told that if I wanted to do something about it, I'd have to spend a large amount of money (and it still wouldn't look the way I intended it to).
Seriously; I'm not suggesting that this is a money-grabbing exercise because I know that so few people see it as an issue, but to add something that people might not want to have, and then make the only way of changing it to be by paying a load of cash seems very ill-advised.

I agree with the fact it just doesnt look right when people walk
in my house. I worked hard on the design and a big yellow blasted.
You have entered the Home of Basstian. would have never been part of my decor.
I would be more than willing for people to type
(home info) and see.
This home Belongs to Basstian
Has x x x x x x room attributes
and appraises in game for X gold
It was construted dd/mm/yy
This would serve multipule purposes.
Would give home owner and future home builders an idea of the Gold value of this home.
Would give explorers the information you obviously want them to have access to on homes they can enter.
Would save a bit of history keeping the date for all to see of how old the home is.
I know of at least 3 homes I have designed for people where "easter egg" type hints and flags were purchased and described so that they would have to really read and search out to find the owner. Was part of the design and thought concept of the home. This big yellow spam nullifies that.
It is something we can live with it doesnt hurt its not going to change the way we have to play the game.
But these are house's we have invested our time our RU and our thoughts into with the belief the home would be "Ours" we are not allowed to use color bright yellow etc etc and follow those rules during design.
For everbody that wants to whine at least give an idea that will meet somewhere in the middle.
