I couldn't see any other general discussion on the GPH addon so I thought I would start some.

First of all I'd like to say I much prefer the addon to the old Armory import version as I can see player notes.

However the link to the Armory just seems to bring up an Armory error page at the moment. Also the links from the class type to Ten Ton Hammer seem unneccessary and smack of hidden advertising on paid accounts, perhaps link to Blizzard?

I personally find it very helpful to have the roster import the 'last on' data from the in game roster.

I know this would become outdated quickly but it would allow me to see at a glance who hasn't been on for weeks or months so I can take appropriate action.

Also a minimap button to access the addon or even better a Fubar/Titan Panel/Broker addon would be awesome

#Any chance of adding these in a future update?

Hey Miles!

It looks like the Armory links work fine for the US version, but the links add "European:" into the link for the EU servers (the text in red). And I'm sure it does it for the other non-US servers as well. I'd submit a ticket to get GP to fix this.

As for the TenTonHammer Links that I find annoying as well, I wrote a script to remove them here.

Becoming Adept!

As a really honestly lazy Guild Leader, I just have to say... I wish for the old Armory roster before you went to the GPhelper... If I'm lucky enough to remember to update the roster from in game, I almost ALWAYS forget to load the update into GP. And quite frankly, I think having to do it manually is a PITA.
What are the chances of having a choice between doing it the old way and doing it the new way The only reason I have the roster there is so people on the website can see right away who all is in the guild. I do not need the added benefits of the notes showing and whatever else was the reason behind switching to the GPH version.
I haven't really seen much feedback either way, but then, I haven't really looked either. (Lazy, remember?hahaha)
Other than that and a new bug today, I LOVE Guild Portal. Thanks so much for having it

PS. WoW Armory seems to be having issues this week, so you may want to try those links to armory again.

I'm no expert by I have used many different sites that datamine the WoW Armory to get information on characters, guilds, specs etc etc.

All tyhis leads to huge server lagg for the armory and data to be unrliable / corrupted in the process.

Data-mining the information yourself in-game is a far better option and it'll provide far more consistent and repeatable results.

I've often seen the EU-Armory at around 35% reliability. means that it'll fail on roughly 1 read every 3.


Updates needed for GPHelper:

Frankly I love the addon it's simple to use and simple to upload from.

I would love to see the addon be able to date-stamp when drops came and which boss / instance they were actually from to save having confusion.

I recently added the info for the first time to our guildsite and Because I had nton cleared the log every raid I got a huge long list of items from several different raids all being downloaded onto the event drops.

Can we look into a way of stopping this from being able to happen? Would make the addon so much better it's untrue.

I would also like to see guildees be able to update it. I have a non-officer who would be willing to help with this, but I'm not willing to give SuperAdmin privileges just to do so!
