Re: Petition for housing system upgrade
I have thought of the possibility to benefit from the Farmer profession in some real and useful way, and the idea of them being able to make actually useful flowerbeds and gardening for the house would be a great way to introduce the "missing" Farmer's Guild. Make the stuff Guild recipes, and suddenly we have one more profession that people would actually level for other reasons than just feed their Cook (or Scholar with crits from crops) with materials. I know I would switch my Farmer/Cook to Farmer's Guild immediately, or roll another Farmer solely for the guild.

Make them Guild recipes too.
About the discussions of rents, I would really like to see the removal of the upkeep completely from the Standard houses, but still keep it as it is on Deluxe houses. The 50s/week is more an annoyance than anything else, and removing it would only make the game another tiny bit more playable. And maybe make extra Standard houses available to every toon on the account but have the extra ones have upkeep. Limit the Deluxe still for only 1/account/server.
This would allow the Hobbit toons to live in the Shire and Dwarves at Thorin's Halls. Instead of that, roleplayers have to make three F2P accounts to get all of their toons the right houses, if they don't want to come up with wild stories (Anonymour Elven Cave-Dweller: "Hello, my name is Mary-Sue and I like to live underground." *lots of screaming from every other Elf around*) of why their Elven Minstrel wants to live underground (or actually even visit)...
