Aug 17th 2010 11:25PM Liquience is right, something simple like a string representing ordering preference, say "050102030400" using Nobag's toons as example would put the 5th toon (Priest) first. (0x00 signifies the end of the list)
Actually using this method would not even require a significant change to the character DB since the "ORDER" can just be an extra response sent with the character list for the realm pulled from whatever DB has Account+Realm as indexable records (something like where "SELECT Order FROM SomeDB WHERE Account = $account AND Realm = $realm" works.)
IMHO the UI change is more interesting... although personally I think making the toon nameplates drag-able between the list is the most organic & natural to most users, with something like SHIFT+UP and SHIFT+DOWN to move them with the keyboard.
Feb 2nd 2010 1:59PM I second that, hysterically funny IMHO as a recovering Back To The Future fanatic.
