If that is the case though, would it be possible for when you type 'puppet request' you see a little *## next to your request so you can see how close you are in the line? Some requests require you to be ready to be involved in a lot of stuff, or in a discrete location, or whathaveyou, and it would be rad to be able to see, "Oh shit I'm like 3 places away from mine being up, I should make sure I'm nearby/armed/ready to roll/etc." or "Okay wow, I'm #156, I should plan for a long wait here and RP accordingly."
I feel that this could help make requests smoother for staff since players that have pending requests will be able to see when they are getting close to being (relatively) puppeted with and would be primed and ready for action. It would help on the player side to give players an idea of where they stand in line, which is always nice to know when you're waiting for anything.
