Here we go again... (and updated)
Better Communication & Customer Service:
We desperately need better communication and customer service from our Home managers and staff members on questions and issues with Home. Currently they spend 10x more time on these forums pushing new content than answering questions and addressing issues with Home and content that isn't new.
Better Item Management:
At the very least we need the same sorting options for items in storage that we have for items not in storage, and we desperately need a 2nd storage folder that is not a spillover so we can find items we want that are forced into storage. At best they should add more folders (just as they have in the store - which seperates shirts, coats, and dresses). Ornaments is an especially bad folder as it lumps so many totally unrelated and different items together.
Separate Folders for Companions and LMOs:
Maybe even seperate folders for different types of LMOs, like Gestures, Dancing, and Moving LMOs. As it is now, the inventory folder and storage is a total mess for anyone who has a lot of companions and LMOs. If Sony wanted to sell more of these they desperately need to fix this issue.
Improve the Character Saves Folder:
As it is now, you have to wait until all of your character saves loads before you can pick one or save a new one. Instead of adding more character saves slots to the same folder as they did when they went from 9 to 24 and now to 48 for PS+ members, instead they should have multiple character save folders, with one page (12) saves each. This way not only will it take a lot less time to load your saves before using them, but we would also finally be able to organize our characters. For instance, you could use one folder for formal wear, another for swim wear, another for cosplay, etc, etc etc.
Restore the Crippled Targetting System:
It used to be we could target any item in our spaces, which allowed us to use chairs as quick transporters without using up unnecessary slots, and saving a lot of time getting around. Now some items you can't even target when they are RIGHT in front of you. The idea this was some kind of improvement is laughable.
Allow for More Creativity:
This is a virtual world and there is plenty in Home that is not realistic and has no bearing on real world physics, so why then does Sony continue to cripple the creativity of users in their own personal spaces? If Sony allowed people to be more creative, especially in their own personal spaces, it would drastically increase their user base - and sales of these spaces and items they use to be creative with. Instead they have time after time taken away creative ways of decorating spaces and using those spaces. For instance, we should be able to place items any where we like, even floating in the air. Yes, there are glitches that allow you to still do that, but it should be a feature not a glitch.
Update Older Active Items:
The problem with most older active items is that they were assigned the default max 22 slot allocation, even though clearly many would only require as little as 1 slot. While some developers are starting to update their older active items to lower their slot allocation, Sony has so far refused to do that. The claim made by certain people is that the cost would not be worth it, but after speaking with someone from Digital Leisure, they said they were able to update their active item arcades from 22 slots to just 1 at practically no cost, and was very simple to do. Furthermore, if these older active items got updated to use fewer slots, it would only encourage many to buy them that did not before due to the slot amount being so excessive. Not only that, but by using fewer slots, it will allow users to add more items to their spaces, thus encourage more sales of other items as well.
The Ability to Save Multiple Layouts of Our Spaces:
Prior to 1.75, it was possible to do this by making copies of the individual space files, but to switch layouts you had to quit Home and copy the file(s) you wanted to switch to and then restart Home... But that was still a lot faster than removing all the items from a space and redecorating each and every time. This allowed people to have special holiday themes to their spaces, some which easily took days to make. 1.75 however made all that effort useless as we can no longer simply swap files. While they should have thought of that BEFORE going live with 1.75, the least they can do is add a feature that allows us to save multiple layouts. Doing so would also promote the sale of more items to use to decorate those layouts with.
Ability to Sort Our Personal Spaces and Tag some as Favorites:
As it is now, the more spaces you own the more difficult and time consuming it is to try and find them in the list of spaces. It would be very useful if we could tag some of them as favoroites so they are listed at the top. At the very least they should list them Alphabetically. Instead, as it is now, you have to try and remember when you bought the space in order to find it.
Improve the Organization of Public Spaces:
In NA Home, not only do they only list the publiv spaces alphabetically, but many of those spaces are not even in the correct order based on the name of the space as shown in the list. In other regions, spaces are also orhanzied by developer and even genre - which makes finding these space much easier than what we currently have in NA Home.
Improve the Shopping Experience in Home:
The fact that shopping in Home has only gotten worse lately makes you wonder if Sony really cares about sales in Home. The removal of the Shears store has made it far more dificult to shop for hair items. For one, there should be more grouped store categories, not less - like Shears. For another, all stores should be available and easy to find in the Nav menu for quick purchases. For another, ALL items should offer a preview, and not just single wardrobe items. If it has special animation, then there should be a video preview option to click on. For furnishings, in order to see the actual size, they should have a preview pic option that shows the item next to an average size avatar.
Bring Back Game Related Content:
Even if AAA game developers no longer are interested in making or even licensing content for Home, Sony should at the very least be offering Home related content for their own games, like they used to.
Improve the Ignore Option:
We should have the ability to not only make the avatar of someone that we are ignoring to disappear from our view - and not just make it appear as though they are looking away from you, but it should also make our avatar disappear from their view. As it is, even if you ignore someone, from their POV they can continue to harass other avatars for the amusement of their friends around them. If instead our avatar disappears from their view, it would end the incentive of abuse. This also will help now that some LMOs are getting so huge and can be used to block someone view. If we had the option to make them vanish that would help a great deal.
Belonging to More Clubs:
We should be able to belong to more than 5 clubs a
Adding More Members to a Club:
We should be able to have more members in a club t

*In the voice of Jonah Jameson* "I WANT SLENDERMAN" lol, with the increasing popularity of slenderman me and i'm sure others would love a slenderman outfit with R1 option to toggle squigglies on and off.

I think there should be more sales and updates to older spaces that can't incorporate new locomotion items and to gripe about club spaces that cost the same as personal but don't give owner or friends same rewards (digital leisure i mean u) I have space station club house so really paid more for it and got less.

My thoughts are on pets atm
- I would like to see more exotic pet companions Hyena, Boar, etc...
- Pets have their own tab, so you can have a pet out and a skateboard at the same time, I think it would be cool to skate around and have my pet follow me.
- Pets that make sounds, if my pet wolf howls, I would like to hear him, if it's a issue that other people don't want to hear your pet make sounds, maybe a option you can turn on and off pet sounds.
- Don't know if this could be done but doesn't hurt to throw it out there, How about a pet you can buy and add it to your personal spaces, and when you put it in your space, it randomly roams around the space.

Could we have some long and short socks. But with shoes with different colors and styles.
Also, the shoes have to be with the socks as a foot item...not the socks with the bottoms please
Could we please have a function or radio that lets us play our own music. It would be a really great help to clubs that use music for parties, runways, etc. Also can we pretty please have Assassin's Creed content on home and not just a multiplayer beta....
