    a post about stuff
    This is a great start so +rep. However, with multiple separate projects in the works I will say that only one of them can win out; otherwise data is sure to be even less complete than Entropedia ever was. Entropedia is and was a great product that I have used almost without fail every day in game (provided that it wasn't down). But with 711 showing his support of a potential new wiki and with Entropedia having been increasingly unreliable over the past couple of years, I think this effort is a great idea. I am lost without a proper wiki!

    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.

    Code:
    entropedia.info registry whois

    Is there a list of all the previous attempts and sim-to websites over the years???
    Could be an eye opener for some...
    I don't know of any list, I do know that Entropedia.info used to be PE-wiki.info, I did own that domain for a few years until the name change from PE to EU.
    I know of at least two initiatives to rebuild/revamp/update/upgrade the entropedia that sort of...stranded.

    Thanks, and I agree. I made it for myself since I needed the data and none of the other projects have surfaced yet. I decided to post what I've done so far (about a day's work) in case others need at least the basic weapon info, until something better comes along.

    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.

    Technically yes, but it's not that simple. When it expires it will go up for auction. Typically domain brokerage firms (the most vile scum of the Earth) will place backorder bids on domains of any value to monitor them; and if you are interested in participating in the auction you should also. If a domain broker obtains the domain, they will sit on it and not sell it for less than 300x what it's worth.

    The only sure way of getting the domain without spending a fortune is to get the current owner to transfer it to you.

    It may also be set for auto renew by the owner....best way is to reach out to the current owner instead of waiting and hoping.

    Hi

    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.

    Entropia Tracker gets all its data from the chat log, so it can only track loot in the chat window (rare loot, items looted in team, etc.).

    The loot is visible only in teams and there is no way to know what a mob was that. It would be doable for globals/hofs situations, but the loot content from them hardly can represent the mob's average loot.

    As others pointed out, this data is not logged by the Entropia client.

    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.
