Wowhead for another MMOFollow

Question - how would I go about getting a Wowhead database and client for another MMO?

Would this be something that Wowhead or ZAM would be interested in?

If I had to create it myself, any tips or advice?

Thanks in advance,
Norian

What game are you thinking of? ZAM is constantly looking at upcoming games for ideas. http://www.destinydb.com/ was our latest.

Not all games support a data-collection client like Wowhead's, unfortunately. That robust data is one of the things that makes Wowhead great.

How about Entropia Universe?

Small player base, but millions of dollars invested in-game. No real accurate database out there other than Entropedia.

Would be awesome if a wowhead client could be use or the files reviewed and put into a great Database.

Players already make big investments in game and would be willing to pay and donate to a good site.

It'd be a decision well above my paygrade :) But it takes quite a lot of resources to develop sites like Wowhead; it's not a process we start lightly.

I've pointed out your suggestion to the appropriate people.

I totally understand - the resources, time, and investment are no joke!

The EU community wants it/needs it IMO. Thanks for forwarding the message on.

If there is anything I can do on my side, let me know.

If interested, planetcalypsoforum.com is where most of the forum action takes place.
