Player Locator/Database?
« on: June 18, 2007, 06:04:54 AM »
I realize you guys are still working, fine-tuning the site and all that, but I was wondering if you had any plans for making a proper database we can use, or if we'll have to use the wiki again.

It would be kinda cool if you could tie it into user-accounts directly, a small area dedicated to Player Database, where you could check a box to say you want to be in the database, and some fields where you can enter pertinent information, like location (country or country/state and nearest city), GC and/or player, online and/or real-life, and when you're available.

Dunno if it is at all possible with the software you're using, but I think it'd be a fairly cool addition.

This is something I very much want to do, but it's going to need to wait a little while, as it seques nicely with another project we'll be working on. I remember Kagemaru threatening to put something together along these lines...now that we have a PHP site, it should be possible for him to put one together as an interim solution :)

heh, yeah but not as nicely integrated as Antilles wishes it to be. I was offering an external solution, as my SMF hacking skillz are non-existant. ^^;;

I thought this was certainly happening on the LSpy site.

An easy solution would be to add a forum for open game adds or for players looking for games.

I wold like that very much. I know there are at least two people on this forum who are in my area, but I've never posted anythign because i feel there is no place to do so.
I travel some, so I wuold love to know where people are, or let them know I'm travelling.
I never added to the wiki becuase I couldn't figure out how. Someone on this forum said there was something up, but I couldn't find it. So yes, any place where these things could be placed would be cool!
90% of all statistics are wrong.

I added myself. As I expected, I'm the only Scandinavian who plays Spycraft  :-[

Trying to register for this, I think I was able to add myself to the map.

However, in trying to get an account, i get the following message, when I click Join:

The rest of the page is blank.

Clue Chain, anyone?

Seriously, none of the gaming stores in Norway even have Spycraft. But then again, I'm used to order my stuff from London :)

You're on the map.  You *might* be able to register if you hit the "sign in" link.  It offers a "register now" option, which I believe is what I had to do after getting the same message you reported.

Really? I know Outland had a decent stock of 1.0 books, and I think Avalon had some as well. I can't remember if they had the 2.0 book, though... And yeah, I had to make a special order with the store (which they happliy accepted), only snag is they've still not gotten it yet. Oh well, I've got the pdf's, I can manage :).

Both sign-in and join links give me that same message. 

Perhaps something to do with my using firefox?

Ah, so we do have another Norwegian here? :)
Outland do have some 1.0 books, but they don't even know about 2.0. Which means very few players in Norway will get to play it.
