Any chance of either removing the extremely annoying confirmation dialogue box any time I pay my housing rent?  That or give players an option to turn it off, or allow us to have a single button that will allow us to pay a month or longer without the stupid confirmation.  If I wasn't absolutely certain I wanted to pay it, I wouldn't click.  Or, change it so that we can set a certain figure for confirmation, like on the broker...  

.....this section edited cause it's really not necessary and sorta inflamatory.... just frustrated by a lot of things about EQ2 lately.

Seconded, I don't like having to click yes 5+ times to pay my rent.

I'd rather they fix more important things about the game vs someone having to move their finger 5 extra times for something once a month or three.

An unfortunate side effect of guild halls.  It was entirely too easy to pay upkeep by mistake on halls, so I'm actually happy they put in the confirmation (its really a pain when you put in just enough cash/status to buy an amenity then click the wrong bloody button and pay upkeep, then don't have enough to buy the amenity anymore...).   Of course, there might have been other ways to do it, but at least this way people have no valid complaint if they pay more rent/upkeep than they had intended.  Personally, I tend to pay my house rent a month or more at a time, so its click click a few times then forget about it for a while.

Well, its 11-12 times (pay by the week up to 84 days) that you have to move your hand plus going back makes it 24. Multiply that by 24 characters and suddenly it becomes a medical issue and that takes priority over other things.

This is one of the most irritating sections in the game.

I have a bigger question. What in the world is the point of Escrow in a house? The only possible use I could think of is so EITHER people can click on your door and pay the bill out of Escrow OR for the rent to be paid automatically. Neither happens. As it is, I periodically get locked out of my house and unable to get there using the Guild Hall portal despite having more than enough gold in escrow to auto-pay the bill. I have to call home, run through Qeynos, and pay the bill at the door. So what is the point of Escrow again?

Escrow existed long before the portal from the GH, and that portal cannot help you pay your rent. It would be nice if it could.

Escrow in houses was never all that useful, except if you wanted to store money so that any trustee of the house could pay rent using it. IE I have a few alts whose houses I use for storage. I put about 1g in their escrow so that any time I (or a an alt) stop by it pays out of there, since some storage alts don't have any cash on them at all. It's still useful, but it would be nice if there was an option (like a checkbox) for it to auto-pay for the house when someone tries to zone in but rent is due.
