How difficult would it be to create a SWTOR-specific roster widget that could automatically pull the roster/copy from swtor.com?

IE: http://www.swtor.com/guilds/5324/dark/roster

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi Corganno!

All I can say is HOLY CR*P! They have so much info crammed into that page that it's 1Mb in size.... so basically I'm saying there's nothing I can (or want to) do with that page unless they have a hidden roster feed somewhere.

Yeah I took a look at that and came to pretty much the same conclusion Mottie did. However, if that's what they end up going with when the game is actually released, GP will move forward with a way to include it in your guild site like other rosters. Sure would be nice to have a semi-structured view of the data, though... Maybe you folks could pester them in their forums for an XML feed. It'll be more effective than if GP are the only ones asking for it.

I did a search on rosters at the SWTOR site and didn't find any discussion on this issue there.  Perhaps there are better search terms or I missed it. 

I would like to post the suggestion to get the ball rolling but I'm not sure of the specific terms to use to encourage a positive response. 

What specifically should I suggest so that we can cull name, guild rank, class, etc. from the guild roster page?  A copy and paste quote would be great! 

Cheers

The only issue with this is that BioWare's getting rid of the guild roster/forum functionality after the game actually launches, it's just there for the Pre-Launch program. Any SW:TOR integrated roster is going to have to wait well after launch when we actually see if they implement a "WoW Armory" of sorts for TOR.

I ran across this youtube exerpt which doesn't exactly explain things...however it seemed like a simple graphical roster which might look nice as a widget for ideas...here is the video.

Hi, its not finished  yet -- but if you go to the control Panel > Member Management > Raid/op Groups (on the right now)   After you have filled this out click "save" .  Now click "Roster" and check what members should show up in this section.  The actually widget should go live Friday.
