Should the portal list show own portals always at the top? And should the structures list allow jumping too? Both? One? Something else, what? :)

How about a favorite portals list that's created by the player. They could have their own portals listed there also. Would that be possible?

I think being allowed to jump to own portal from structures list is a great idea, own portal always at the top might be confusing. But if you do, please make it so we can't self destroy in confusion like we did so often on SC... ;D
(by the way, do you think you could find a way to "highligt" the selected structure when asking to confirm destruction? fat fingers might occur as we have no way to see if we selected the right one imo)
Favorite portals list could be a great option too!

Yes, the typical "jump... oh, right, I destroyed it..." syndrome :)

If you select a structure in game and then go to the structure list, it'll highlight it. But as I just noticed, it only works on iOS7 now, in the next client version it'll work with iOS6 too.

Favorite list is something we can think about.

I wouldn't place own portals at the top of the list. Would get confusing when in a war or battle of some sort when yours appear at the top. But then again, I'm not sure if it's implied that they're placed at the top of every list or not. Placing own portals at the top of the 'Player' tab would work though.

That's a good idea, Nicci! It might be enough to find them easily in one list at the top. Anyone disagree with that? It would also be logical.

Well, what I've noticed is when you're at your home base, your portals are already at the top in the "Distance" tab. But I'm guessing everyone wants the ability to see their portals at the top anywhere? I wasn't entirely sure. You could also take off the player's portals from their own portal tabs and allow them to access their portals through their "Build" handle and "Structures" tab. (Hopefully that made sense)

Perhaps a way to use your own portal in the list of your own structures would alleviate the need to find your own portals in the portal list.

If I recall, that was an option in previous versions, Aro. Might be worth a re-look.

I also like the idea of finding your portals at the top of the player list. The distance one only works if you go home first usually. If you are at someone else's portal yours might not be the closest to it.

I think the solution is to allow a "favorites" list at the top of the portal list. When you create your own portals they can default to the favorites list if you want. By making it a list of favorites you can modify, then the player can customize easily, set portals during battles temporarily as favorites, etc. Favorites can be either the top of the list, or a separate "tab" like Time, distance, player, etc. If the favorites list was added I probably wouldn't ever jump to a portal using the build list, simply as you said because I know I'd accidentally destroy something. What would be super-slick would be if in the "globe view" the portals you had set to favorite showed up as a different color.

Other ideas:
Allow portals to be selected from globe view. ( I know this has been mentioned before by others.. but I like it)

Personally.. I LOVE the portal menu system.
