This is still a work in progress, but we have made extensive use of the XML available from Mythic and created some useful XSL transforms for displaying pertinent data. The Realm Wars, Crafters, Morgan and Merlin tabs have underlying transforms. Give it a look and let me know if you have any suggestions. Site can be found HERE.

Submitted for your consideration.

Update...

We have made some additional enhancements to the site including...
1. Custom content borders.
2. Modifications to some of the content backgrounds to make viewing a little easier on the eye.
3. Added the scripting that allows for member recognition, GP and Site registration in the welcome message. (Thanks Cicalla!)

In the works are custom forum Icons.

I basically took Cicalla's core code from HERE and made some changes. And thanks again Cicalla.

And thanks for the compliment. The site is proving to be a very useful tool in keeping guildies informed and the information flowing.

Wow; I like some of the XML/XSL transforms you did; I had never really thought of bringing background colors and textures into account with a transform, and I really like the idea of a level-count chart.

Also, you deal with a server-span very well...I like it a lot.

The only suggestion I would put forth is to add some lighter color somewhere for a bit of contrast and spruce in a bit of graphics for the section links, but overall, it looks great.

I just wanted to stop back by and thank you guys for placing Shadowmore in the Spotlight rotation. It is quite an honor, and we wanted to say how very pleased we are about it.

Keep up the great work on the Best Guild Hosting service available.
