Professions - Sorting new applicants

I am posting these as I come to them in my play.

Got 5 new applicants at my desk. Great. I go to the first one and look at it... OK, not sure if I want to accept it, how does it compared to the other ones.... what? I have to either accept or decline this one without looking at the other ones. WHY!!! Its a stack of freak'n applications, why can't I look at all of them before deciding the one on top?

I mean this does not even make logical sense!

    I think we should be able to review all applicant qualifications before having to decide whether to accept of decline each one without reviewing the other... good catch.

    I'll be absorbed by this mob, (sic) fersure.

    Agreed: new applicants need a comparison view against any other applicant and/or existing artisan. Any equipment (e.g. ring) has a comparison view against what you already have. Applicants don't, unless you have an offline spreadsheet.

    Here's my $0.02 on how to make this UI usable: think of it like sorting your hand of cards (e.g. Dominion), possibly laid out a Scrum board with post-its. I'd like a grid-like view of existing artisan cards, showing the total number of artisan spaces my workshop upgrades have unlocked. For bonus points, have a status row showing how many per category (Alchemy, Artificing, ...) I have, such as '1 white Alchemist, 1 purple'. New applicants' cards are at the bottom. If I click on any artisan card to select it, then hover over any other artisan card, the difference view appears. There's a discard bin off to the side, and a OK/Cancel buttons.

    This way, the comparisons are facilitated, and I can see all applicants at once, and manage them.

    Please feel free to take this idea and run with it.
