Alerts Page

I strongly suggest that:

On the alerts page, the squads should be on the right, alerts in the middle, and burrows on the left.  Better yet, have it ask which alert/burrow after choosing the squad, which will avoid that whole which row/column confusion from the military screens.  Also, {civ} shouldnt be a designation attached to an alert, but a "squad" unto itself, making it easier to assign to burrows, etc........

Is it just me, or did Toady purposely make the military screens interface a nightmare just for fun, completely in keeping with the other the rest of the games interface monstrosity?  Weeding out the chaff perhaps?    :P

No I think its a good system. He just had no way of knowing what the people would hate, and what they would love. It will eventually get up and going.
