Becoming Adept!

Hello everyone. New to the admin guild and the site, but loving it so far.

I hope that this is not answered in another post that I missed, but I searched for a couple hours and finally decided to post a new topic.

I would like to pull the guild roster information in, to allow me to manipulate it on the site (for instance, I would like to have a "featured guild member" spot, and would like to have it pull the roster info so that I don't have to hard code all the guild info into a file, and worry about updating it when the guild member's data changes).

Is it possible to get an XML stream to the guild roster data (character data)? Or would I have to do something like embed a webpage with guild member data? Any other ideas for me to get WoW guild data into my site that's dynamic (doesn't have to be real time) would be great.

Thanks in advance for your help, and have a great day.

Hi there --

No roster XML feed available yet.  Used to have one, a long timeago, but the roster complexity has increased a lot since then, toinclude medals, journal entries, flags, and all that good stuff.

Though, we do have a lot of XSL/XSLT gurus running around, so... Well,would everyone like to see an XML feed put back in place for the rosterdata?
Aaron Lewis,

Thanks for your quick response. It is refreshing to see a webmaster/programmer so involved in the site and open to user suggestion.

I think that making the guild roster available via XML feed would be very useful, and would love to see it as a feature.

Best of luck with the Cambodia project, and I laud your efforts!

I would personally love an xml version of the roster, for instance, to lose such things as "keys/flags" which are not relevant to anyone outside of the everquest community (unless im missing a trick here - quite possible ).

Xml / xsl gives us all much more flexibility to present data to our players, and many games just dont give us xml feeds or make us pay(!) for them.

Has this been implemented already Aaron?  It's possible I just missed it when you did it.

If not, any ETA?
