Wowhead Looter Display Options
Return to board index
As a reward for users collecting loot data for the website, it would be awesome for us to have the ability to have a selectable option to see the data collected as a mob mouseover window similar to how Mobinfo2 is trying to do but is not coded to do so correctly atm. I Would like to see my # of kills and what has dropped with a % drop of items per mob etc in the mouseover. many of us that collect this information that populates the site with items and accurate %drop are the ones that spend hours farming. I understand that you need hits for the site in order to pay the bills so i wouldnt ask for it to retreive data from wowhead but only display our individual collected information.
That's a really cool idea, but as you said, it would be weird to have the client serve Wowhead's functionality. I do think showing internal stats could be cool--for example, how many items YOU have personally collected and I think that would be doable. At the moment we're doing a lot of data fixes and Wowhead DB related stuff, but I think this would be fun to revisit once things are calmer. :)
I was looking at it as more of a motivationg factor for more players to use the addon at the most opportunistic time. If it provides an entertaining feature then you would probably have 1/3 more users conducting uploads. My thought on doing it now would frontload more data to the site as the game is still fluid and things have yet to be looted as opposed to waiting. Myself for example; uploaded 1300 loots in 3 days but once i've finished farming for my shards then that number will drop to 1/10th.. Just food for thought. Thank u for responding.
