Hmm...Did Lodestone break something when they added the linkshell page? 'Cuz my sig banner is not updating again...
Anyone else experience the same problem?
on a related note, those who dont have one cant make one due to an error also, probly the same reason
Can confirm this. Most likely the reason is the recent changes to Lodestone.
More likely than not, the ZAM generator is "scraping" Lodestone, which is to be expected. It's really all they can do in absence of an official API.
Hopefully, the new SE leadership team mandates a fully function in- and out-of- game API for things expected from the leading MMOs: in-game item linking, official search, achievement tracking, in-game add-on development, etc. etc.
While sites like ZAM, YG, and XIVpro fill the void, they would all benefit from a fully integrated ecosystem. Imagine an in-game add-on that could probe bazaars and upload item prices automatically to a central database... or one that could automatically create a wiki page when a new recipe is "learned"... It's hopefully not too much to ask out of a 2011 MMO.
