I have noticed something with towny that really needs a little bit of attention; whenever you /t claim something it is only ever shown to you. This isn't good especially if you have assistants that do not ask if they should be /t claiming something that is nearby the town. For another example they can claim outposts that the mayor may never even know about until finding out in the worst way possible when the town runs out of plots to use. This can cause all kinds of arguments and mistrust of adding perfectly qualified assistants to a mayor's roster. My suggestion is this; whenever something is /t claimed by anyone in the town, it shows up just as if you were talking in /tc. Now I know this may not be an issue in some towns but my town has very specific rules about coming to me before ever /t claiming or /t claim outposting anything since we are currently in the middle of moving our town. This would also take away any issues with assistants who think they are better than other townies and claim just out of greed for themselves. This would be the best solution as it would show everyone in the town who is on that someone is claiming something and if that is not okay in their town they can run it by their mayor and take the best course of action.
Hopefully I'm not the only mayor that sees the need for this.
