Getting Started!

I was wondering if the add-on could contain an archive of the raids and the loot and players with it?

An example of this:

The idea is it keeps track of all raids done and loot distributed until you delete it yourself. This makes it easy to upload to the website (calender) whenever you want.

Why this? Because we often do one raid after another. As you know, with the current add-on, when entering a new raid, the loot and all other data from the previous raid will be overwritten to register the 2nd one
This sometimes is even troublesome: after a whipe and I have to re-enter the instance, it also resets! Which means data about the bosses already done is gone, even though we still continue the same raid! (This is the case for Naxxramas for example, after releasing corpse, we spawn outside and have to fly back inside, which resets the data upon entering).

Probably not so easy to fix, but is it possible?

I would really like to see Member Tradeskills that auto-updates from the Armory. It would be much easier than having to go edit my characters every time I gain a skill level. I realize that the Armory only shows primary professions, but not everyone cares about secondary professions, so I think we should at least have the option to  display an auto-updated tradeskill list on our website.

Agreed.. importing professions from the armory - some sites already do this.. wowstead for example. Also maybe it would be possible to import Guild Ranks from the armory too?

Another idea was to have a list of the raid acheivements in control panel, so if you pick Naxx10 for example you could click whatever acheivements have been completed , add the date, any comment, and for bosses, attempted (but failed) or killed.

Progression bars : this is an example of what i mean:

Aaron will look at getting some of this working using the GuildPortal Add-on .  As for getting the info from the Armory --- well --- we are not allowed to do that

Becoming Adept!

I too would love to see some of the stuff people mentioned above such as
  • auto updating tradeskill info, specially since it's avail in the guild info stuff now.
  • roster lists functioning a bit better with the application/addon
  • a quickie helpful/instructional/faq with the windows app would be nice. Somehow I've gotten guild info from ones not on my site accidentally (my fault i'm sure but i'd like to know easiest way to prevent such).
I'm guild second and webmistress for a guild that's really on two servers (slightly diff name on each but both have the same leadership and same members in general with same policies etc) and I saw a couple mentions of multi-game stuff being worked on a few years ago in the forums which would likely work for having a guild on two servers in WoW but nothing terribly recent and see a lack of ways to do both on one site. I know you can use alliances but we really like the idea of being able to have one site for people to look at not two - I know guild launch supposedly has multi game abilities but I do like guild portal over all. As such I've a few thoughts (maybe I'm wrong and there's ways to do this all easily if so i'd love to know):
  • Wow server status (lets you choose alliance/horde emblem but no matter how many of the buggers you put out it only shows you the one realm you choose in the serch option)
  • Search option only lets people find you via one realm and one lot of info.
  • Roster to combine both servers or ability to have one for each (either'd be fine really
  • Sort tradeskills by server
  • make it so the addon/application can pick up both server info.

Many do like to have an alliance and horde guild especially on diff servers as you can only have 10 toons per server so kinda would make sense to have more ability...

Also alliances are neat, we did splinter off an original guild and are allied to them still but even though we cut off access to some stuff for them you can't edit specific widgets to say 'don't let alliance info show here grrr' without banning the alliance guild from looking at a page if that's possible even. Widgets such as the below would be great to not allow alliance info to be shoved into without making the alliance members unable to see:
  • Tradeskills
  • Shoutbox

Also neat though unrelated slightly to the above as it's just asthetic would be the ability to have a static background stretch to fit a window.

I noticed places like Guildlaunch has a new widget dealing with cata, and that is a guild perk widget. Anything in the works for having such a widget done or made. That shows when people log onto your guild webpage to show what level and guild perks that guild has?

I was wondering how difficult it would be to add a blank or manual input option for the guild related contents? This way, anyone could use all the epic widgit content but manually enter all of the data. This way, it's compatible with any server?

Getting Started!

It would be awesome if there was a customizable loot system widget or something that supports systems other than DKP. I run a ni-karma based system and it would nice to have something to calculate that instead of me having to put it in a free form text widget and update it manually.
