Several of you have guessed it but for those still wondering:

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/results.jsp?domain=xivdb.com

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/results.jsp?domain=xivpads.com

Zam has officially acquired XIVDB.com and XIVPads.com and brought their developers on board to join the Zam team. What does this mean for these forums? Well they're about to get more awesome. Some of the things we are looking at doing:

  • XIVDB Tooltips will be added to the forums.
  • Premium members on Zam gain the same perks as donors over on XIVPads and XIVDB.
  • Site login between Zam and XIVDB/Pads will be integrated.
  • Forum Signatures from XIVPads will be implemented here.
  • More things to come!

It's a shame that making something a sticky on this board almost guarantees that it WON'T be read Smiley: oyvey

I did expect something like this from Zam. Good to see they're taking XIV seriously. Are the donor perks cool? Smiley: clown

They could be. We're working on thinking up some new ones, but I linked to their donor page so you could see what they are.

There isn't a timeline for getting that setup yet, right now they're furiously working on the Phase 4 data.

It should be something cool. Like if we put a fund together and pay for the server for a year Wint arm wrestles a gorilla or boxes a kangaroo or something like that.

I was thinking it might be a merger/absorption of mooglebox since their site went down not too long ago. While I loved the homespun feel of MB and wanted to see them survive somehow I'm excited for the massive amounts of knowledge and information XIVDB will offer here. A for sure one stop shop for all FFXIV =D

Will FFXIVDB be updated with all the new items and recipes upon release?

I'm also really hoping for detailed monster drop lists so I can easily find materials for crafting.

They're adding Phase 4 data as they get it, a lot of things were removed by SE.

The plan for drop lists is to have players use FFXIV-APP to update our database with monster data as they encounter it.

What all can FFXIV-APP do? It seems pretty awesome. Is it going to be an unofficial source of add-ons? Also What exactly is Parsing? I know it has something to do with collecting data but what all does it collect? Is it sort of like a damage/healing meter in other games? It would be nice to see how much damage certain combos/positioning do.

The drop down for "Monsters" is greyed out. Clicking doesn't do anything that I can tell.

Do you think they will need screenshots of the various monsters? If so, what is the process to submit images? What size image will fit (pixel X pixel dimension)?

Hunting for mobs and trying to catch them in sceenshots doing awesome poses sounds like a fun way to contribute.

Working for me, a search for Curtana worked just fine. What browser are you using? Do you have Noscript running?

Noscript is an addon that disables javascript. The site works fine for me in Firefox 23.0.1. Are you familiar with how to check to see what Addons you are running?

I don't have Noscript in my addon's. I have 23.0.1. Hmm, I haven't added anything new in the addons and the database (which I love) was working fine for me a couple of days ago. What should I look for in View Source?

I do have Adblock. These are in red on blockable items page:
Which script is necessasry?

||ajax.googleapis.com^
||ajax.googleapis.com^
||monkeybroker.net^$third-party
||facebook.net$domain=~www.facebook.com

When I enable these scripts it works. But which script is necessary?

Nothing in View Source. Click Tools - Addons and see what you have in there. Might need to check Extensions too. Are you accessing at work or at home? Just wondering if something at your work is blocking something the site uses when searching. Did that link I posted above show anything for you?

I'm at home. The link showed nothing on the page, however if enable the scripts it does work. Can you tell me which scripts are necessary?

Any on that page. You can't disable them, that site relies heavily on Javascript.

http://ffxiv-app.com/Plugins/

Log/Event/Parse are implemented right now.

Log does auto-translate of the game in real time for say/tell/shout/yell/fc/ls (you can disable any or all of those)
Event is lik DBM but a mini version of it with plans for expansion, it can notify you of an event that's just happened within your chat. It uses .wav files
Parse is the crown jewel of the app and can parse man things. I think at this point I get a total of 114 types of stats. (some might be removed since they arent used in 2.0 like counter)

Every plugin on the page as a details page :) They get quite a bit of data.

Possibly not. Kudos to you for keeping a handle on what scripts are running. Try disabling it and see. You could go the other way and disable everything and slowly enable until the site starts working. My guess is the FB one isn't required.

Facebook is needed. There are times when there is an image or a scene on the right hand side maybe 3x3.

I'll check the otherone's soon.
