Also we'd need to think about the domain name registration, that is currently still in the name of Witte.
Witte however no longer plays PE, nor does he even still live in the same country.
The domain name entropedia.info will be up for grabs again in less than a year - my limited knowledge of these things is that anyone can resister the domain in his/her name after that, and that there is no action or even consent from Witte required.
Please anyone with more knowledge on the topic correct me if wrong.

I know of at least two initiatives to rebuild/revamp/update/upgrade the entropedia that sort of...stranded.
I will still keep working on it, as I have some ideas that I would like to see if for no other reason than my own benefit.
The only sure way of getting the domain without spending a fortune is to get the current owner to transfer it to you.
not sure if discussed here, but is it possible to parse loot directly to entropedia? We have entropialife parsing all kinds of stuff, maybe EPL team could work something out?
I'm not much into such solutions, so maybe it's not doable, but would be cool to just keep tracker running and it would update/compare current loots and timestamp it by "last VU xxx" etc. I have done some manual work to update Monria/Cyrene loots to wiki tables, but it gets old after some time. Some kind of automatization would be epic.
One weekend I put together a crude program that allowed me to take a screenshot and then it used OCR to scan the loot notifications. I was thinking it would be neat to log loot trends while I hunt. It turned out to be highly problematic. For one, the notifications are rounded (e.g. less than a PEC = 0.00), so the numbers were not accurate. Second, you had to be careful that all the notifications were cleared before the next kill or they would get rescanned, so it slowed you down on small mobs. Third, there was no mob association, so it was only really useful if you were hunting a single mob and a single maturity of that mob. All-in-all, it was a bust. :-/
I'll see if I can get hold of him - he lives in the US nowadays and he's pretty much quit and sold out.
I'd be very surprised if he wants to hold on to the domain or has an objection against letting go of it.
I'll let you know as soon as I know more.
