Default Revamped Characters Page Design

Here's my design for a new Characters Page. It gets rid of clutter to make room for more useful information, without compromising any current info.
  • As has been suggested already, add a column to show each character's current Starsign Bonus.
  • Remove the Play/View column. Turn each character's name into a Play/View link.
  • Remove the Status and Type columns. Display (HC), (L500), (L2K), and (Dead) or (RIP) to the right of character names where appropriate. Or, use different symbols, such as a gravestone for dead characters. No marks for "Active" or "Normal" are necessary.
  • Remove the Realm column altogether, as a character's class implies his or her realm, making this information redundant.
  • Make the Delete links red. At least one person has deleted a character by accident. Red Delete links would prevent future accidental deletions.
