To be able to help members in your alliance with their Islands like you can when you have friends on Facebook would be very nice. I'm not asking for them to be set as your friends just for you to be able to help them. It would help to have a strong Alliance. Also, the alliance chat, in my opinion, should give a notification on your phone so you can know when your alliance is talking as I have logged on multiple times and seen people are talking three or four hours ago and specifically asking me questions. I don't know if anybody else feels the same , these are just my personal thoughts. Thank you for your time, if you read this.
